1) I’ve observed that dressing up the bridesmaids is not just about western themed wedding, but even for Indian weddings. I believe that all the bridesmaids should not be in an identical look and that there should be a little bit of difference, like maybe a little shade gradation or if you’re going for subtle hues then go for subtle hues in different pastel colors but in the same style. That can be really interesting!
2) It’s very important to have a template for the bridesmaids, especially if they’re getting ready at home. It could be about the hairdo or make-up or even accessories. Just make sure that it’s all the same! Like we did a wedding recently where we got all the bridesmaids to wear solitaire earrings and a pendant necklace, while keeping the hairdo same. It is important that all the accessories and hairdo for all of them is the same or at least similar, given that every has different kind of hair and hair textures. Oh, and do consider footwear as a part of the accessories and include them in the template as well!
3) Since people always love to gift the bridesmaids something, I would suggest it’d be nice to gift them something that they’re wearing, whether it’s a charm or earrings or Swarovski. It goes on to become a really sentimental or emotional thing when they’re wearing it and even after that whenever they wear it eventually.
