How To Buy a Ribbon for a Bridesmaid Dress

A wedding is a kind of event that is fun and memorable. It is one of those rare moments that leave you with a lingering, sort of a tingling sensation on your stomach all the way to your toes. The wedding entourage, most especially the bridesmaids, is just as important as the about-to-be married couple. That is why it is quite critical that the bridesmaids’ dresses are perfectly at par with the wedding theme. However, this does not mean that everything should boringly be the same. Spice them up a little bit by accentuating it with ribbons! The key is buying the right one. Here’s how.

  • Determine the motif. Before you even begin choosing the ribbon for your bridesmaids’ dresses, it is very important that you first select a motif for the wedding. This is crucial in the type and color of the ribbon that you will be selecting. It should be at par to the overall theme of the wedding. This should be your first and major deciding factor when picking out the ribbons for your bridesmaids’ dresses.
  • Determine the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses. With the wedding motif in mind, it is now time for you to consider the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses. It is very important to ensure that you also base the ribbon on the shade of fabric of the dresses. It would not make any sense to have a beautiful light blue dress, only to match it with a hideous neon yellow ribbon!
  • Compare ribbon sizes and colors to the style. By now, you should already have a list of ribbon types in mind. The next thing that you should do is to get the bridesmaids’ dresses, study their style and color and start contrasting your way with them from one ribbon to another. You can easily do this by taking pictures of the dresses. Carry them with you as you browse through various kinds of ribbon on a fabric store. Check which one goes perfectly with the dresses in the photos. Take into consideration how you are going to use the ribbons. Will you tie them around the waist or below the bust area?  Will you use them as a sash?  These are the things that you need to think about as you go through tons of ribbon sizes and colors for the dresses.
  • The perfect ribbon for the perfect dress!  Purchase the ribbon and line your bridesmaids while wearing their dresses. Tie the ribbon in a complimentary way. Make sure that you show each of them how to do it. Make adjustments if necessary and if you are going to add this to their hairstyle, ensure that you have enough ribbon to accentuate their crowning glory.

It is quite enjoyable to select a ribbon for your bridesmaids’ dresses. This can effectively brighten up your wedding day in no time!  Just remember, it is very important that you make sure that all bridesmaids have the same ribbon style and color. It would also be a great idea if you add a bunch of classic and elegant sequins, pearls or beads for a more stylish result. These are the very simple steps that you need to do when you want to buy a ribbon for your bridesmaids’ dresses and all you have to do is to follow it. Good luck and have fun!
