- All bridesmaids should be professionally measured for their attire to ensure exact and accurate measurements. This ensures that styles will fit better if the dress needs to be shipped in, as well as to ensure you wont need to do so many unnecessary altercations just because you measured yourself at home instead of double checking those measurements with the dress shop.
- Leave enough time for altercations, the recommended/ average time is 3-5 weeks before the wedding.
Groomsmen Formal Wear:
- To add more depth and personalized touch, allow your groomsmen to be open to incorporating accessories such as ties and pocket squares! You can have them alter the design styles, yet keep the same color scheme to still tie all together your wedding theme.
The "VIP" Children:
- Have the ring bearer carry a ring pillow that represents your theme, season, or even color scheme. You may even want the ring pillow to incorporate an heirloom or a prized possession of some sort.
- Flower girls can accessorize with floral head wreaths and miniature tiaras for a princess/bridal look.
Out of town Bridal Party Members:
- Out-of-town groomsmen and bridesmaids must be fitted, just as they would if they were in town. Try to determine if your groomsmen can go to a local tuxedo shop for their measurements to be taken and sent back. Same thing applies for the bridesmaids as well, except for the fact that women have more of a fair selection process when dress shopping because many dress companies around the world have different locations to choose from.
- You will also want to take into consideration how last-minute the alterations will be handled. This way you can follow your time management structure accordingly.
- You will also need to determine who is paying for their outfits... try to find a price point that works for everyone. Some may also want to rent instead.
