About the dresses of witnesses
"Dangerous" are some types of outfits for witnesses. You need to know about them and, if you still decide, understand how to implement this idea in life.
- Red color. Bright dresses of girlfriends automatically draw attention to themselves. Therefore, it is important here to "put out the fire" with the help of a cut. Example: the same silhouette of all girlfriends, no cutouts or transparent fabrics, hair pulled back smoothly. It is better to resort to a strict cut and the same silhouette of all dresses. Thus "taming" the red color, the bride gets a bright background, but no brighter than her own dress.
- Short dresses. An option that is practically not found at weddings, since the ceremony is, by definition, chaste. But there are exceptions. Here you need to take into account the following nuances: simple tights, no stockings and patterns; not tight fitting, not baggy, opaque fabrics. The bride's dress in this case should also be short or slightly different in length (in one direction or another). It can be flavored with sequins, beads, some accessories that will highlight the bride's dress against the background of the bridesmaids.
- Pantsuit. Also a rare option, but found. If you really choose a suit, it is tailored, stylish and only in combination with bridesmaids suits.
These are the main nuances that you should be aware of when choosing an outfit for a bridesmaid at a wedding. It should be beautiful and compatible. The rest is secondary.
