Choosing the perfect bridesmaid dresses for your favourite girls can be very stressful.  With different skin tones and body shapes to cater for it might feel like an impossible task!  Luckily, at twobirds, we like to keep things as stress free as possible… We understand that every woman is different so our gorgeous range of customizable multiway dresses offer the perfect solution to ensure happy bridesmaids and – essentially – a happy bride.

Colour Scheme

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to finalising your colour scheme and if – like many brides-to-be – you’re struggling to choose it may help to consider other elements of your wedding as a starting point.  If your venue has a strong colour palette or your partner’s outfit has a dominant colour, that may inform your choice.

Go shopping

Why not make a day of it and gather your favourite girls together for a day of trying bridesmaid dresses, a lovely lunch and then finish off the day with a cocktail in your favourite bar?  Dress shopping should be a fun experience so do your research before you go and make sure the dresses you have your heart set on are within your budget.

Mix & Match

A lot of couples are choosing a tonal mix of dress colours for their bridesmaids which can look really striking on the big day.  Tie it all together with the bouquets or ribbons for a cohesive and glamorous look.

Flattering Fit

One size most definitely does not fit all and it’s tricky to find a structured dress to suit every body shape.  Multiway dresses are a great option as each bridesmaid can choose their preferred neckline and wear the dress exactly as they wish – subject to bride’s approval, of course! twobirds dresses cover sizes UK 4-24, can be wrapped in endless different ways and we use a huge amount of premium quality, luxurious fabric to ensure a flattering and feminine silhouette.

Hair & Make up

Lots of couples decide to give the bridesmaids freedom when it comes to hair and make up and – depending on the chosen neckline – hair can be up or down.  For example, an off-centre fishtail braid looks amazing with a one-shoulder style while a high ballerina bun will show off a backless dress perfectly.
