One of the most important, and sometimes difficult, parts of the wedding as a bride is picking out a gorgeous dress that makes you feel just like a princess from your childhood fairytales. But, what could prove to be even more difficult is finding a lovely dress your closest group of gals will all love and agree upon.

Your bridesmaids are bound to have conflicting opinions, on everything from length to style to color, especially during the summer when the heat becomes a factor. Trying to satisfy everyone can seem like an impossible task, but we have a couple of bright ideas to help you keep your sanity.

First things first, for summer weddings (especially if you’re opting for one outdoors), think light and simple. Stay away from dark colors that attract the sunlight and limit the layers of material. Also, consider a shorter dress for a casual look.

As for style, the amount of options can be overwhelming and fit can be unpredictable, especially when ordering online. Fortunately, Kennedy Blue has a solution.

The Kennedy Blue website not only offers a wide variety of bridesmaid-approved dresses, but even allows you to try them on in the comfort of your home!
