Who you choose to have standing beside you as you recite your vows is a very big deal. Chances are, if they’ve agreed to be your bridesmaids, they care about you a lot and this day will be a very big deal for them too. Choosing bridesmaid dresses that make them feel their best as they support you in celebrating your love is an important decision.
There are a lot of different avenues and options you can choose from when it comes to the selection of bridesmaid dresses for your wedding party. Luckily, Ma Chérie Bleue has one of the largest selections of bridesmaid dresses Montreal has to offer.
Choosing Your Bridesmaid Dresses
Your bridesmaids are some of the people who are closest to you in this world. You know their unique personalities better than anyone. While some brides choose to have their wedding parties wearing matching bridesmaid gowns, others opt to let each bridesmaid choose their own dress style within an assigned colour palette or collection.
Length & Fit
Whether you’re choosing long, short, midi, off shoulder, one shoulder, with sleeves or without sleeves, Ma Chérie Bleue has a huge selection and a variety of styles you and your bridesmaids can choose from. We carry a beautiful collection of plus size and maternity bridesmaid dresses as well.
Selecting the colour for your bridesmaid dresses will come down to the mood board you’ve set for your big day. Soft hues like blush and champagne as well as classically elegant dresses in black or ivory are popular options that work in any venue, while metallic options like silver, gold, or rose gold bring a little sparkle to your day. Choosing colours according to the season is also a popular route. Darker colours like burgundy or navy are dramatic and beautiful for fall and winter weddings while light blue and pink are perfect for spring.
Once you’ve selected your desired length, style, and colour, you can let yourself get a little bit playful with texture and details. Sleeves come in all lengths and styles like flutter, cap, long, sheer, and off-the-shoulder. Some brides choose to add an extra flourish like sequins or florals to their maid of honour’s dress so that it stands out.
Traditionally speaking, bridesmaids pay for their own dresses and they can sometimes get expensive. Ma Chérie Bleue strives to keep a selection of affordable bridesmaid dresses that will fit, flatter and complement your wedding dress without breaking the bank. Before working with your Ma Chérie Bleue stylist, let us know your approximate budget so we can pull a selection of bridesmaid dresses that fall within it.
Lead Times and Ordering
Don’t wait until the last minute to order your bridesmaid dresses. We recommend giving yourself about six months lead time on your order to account for shipment, delivery, and tailoring.
