Here is a brief vademecum on choosing the right bridesmaid dress for every wedding, as well as many proposals from which to choose the perfect dress: discover them with us, they are simply fabulous dresses!
The figure of the bridesmaid has roots in ancient Egypt. At that time, it was thought that evil spirits did not look favorably on brides so, to ensure that the bride-to-be was not recognized, her friends dressed exactly like her. This was done to confuse the bad spirits and prevent them from attacking the bride.
In America, five or six bridesmaids (with respective cavaliers) wait for the future bride at the entrance of the church to accompany her to the altar and be present for the entire day.
Here in Italy, however, there is the dominant figure of the maid of honor who, usually, is the sister of the bride or a close friend. Until a few years ago, the size of the wedding procession indicated the status of the wife’s family: the more affluent she was, the greater the number of her bridesmaids. But, according to strict Etiquette, their number should not exceed eight.
Also according to tradition, the bridesmaids should be single and, precisely for this reason, they are chosen from among girls or girls closer to the bride, such as sisters or nieces. Much attention is given to their clothing: for a form of etiquette and tradition, the bride-to-be must follow the choice of clothes and contribute to their purchase.
It is the bride who dictates the rules of the clothes for her bridesmaids, as she must have the same attention and care with which she chooses her dress. Here are some ideas that can help you in choosing the most suitable bridesmaid dress:
As far as colors are concerned, midnight blue (a slightly duller variant of electric blue) and the ever-present gold are once again confirmed as timeless of the summer season.
For brides who love pastel shades, we recommend green in all its nuances (mint, pistachio), or lilac, silver and champagne, perfect for any occasion. Powder pink and bright coral nuances, harmonize perfectly with a shade always in vogue at weddings, the aquamarine.
To the most eccentric brides we suggest grey, ice or metallic, midnight blue or even black: it may sound strange, but black is always an elegant and sophisticated color, even if the Etiquette excludes it from the possible colors for wedding dresses.
Finally, for those who want to recreate a retro and vintage atmosphere, we suggest lace dresses, obviously in pastel shades.
As we mentioned, the bridesmaid is not always an adult, but a child close to the bride: daughter, niece, cousin. Its function is to support the bride and groom during the ceremony and throughout the day. There are also pageboys, who give a tone of affection and romance to the party and precede the bride and groom alone, or accompanied by an older bridesmaid. For them (and only them), white candor is allowed for the bridesmaid dress.
