Bridesmaid dresses are not just for summer weddings.
Yes, if your wedding is in spring or summer, you may want to choose a light-weight chiffon bridesmaid dress that’s perfect for the hot weather, but don’t rule out strapless or sleeveless bridesmaid dresses for autumn and winter too!
A classic bridesmaid dress style that looks great all seasons is the spaghetti strap, which is flattering on almost anyone and also available in many styles.
lf you prefer to choose a bridesmaid dress that covers more of your body, but still feels light enough for summer weather, any of these ball gown bridesmaid dresses are sure to look gorgeous. They are all made from chiffon, but have subtle color-blocking so you can choose exactly how colorful the dresses will be. The light fabric will keep your bridesmaids cool in summer, and they’ll stay warm in winter too under a nice coat!
lf you’re planning to have an outdoor summer ceremony, then any of these bridesmaid dresses would be perfect. Or maybe you’re thinking of a winter wedding and want your bridesmaids to wear these dresses in the colder months, perhaps wit light coats so they don’t get too hot.
Another great thing about strapless or sleeveless bridesmaid dresses is that they go well with just about any type of neckline, whether it’s a sweetheart neckline, strapless neckline or even a cowl back.

So you and your best gals have been through thick and thin together: now it’s time for you to rock the walk down the aisle as bridesmaids. Of course, picking out dresses can sometimes be a major trial-and-error process, but we’ve put together some tips that will hopefully make shopping easier (and more fun) for everyone involved.
1: Be open-minded about color
Whether or not you’re getting married in spring, summer, fall or winter, you’ll want to pick colors that look great on every one of your attendants. That said, there is no denying that certain hues will work better with warmer weather than others. if you’re getting married on the beach, for example, go with bright colors that pop against sandy tones. If you’re holding your ceremony during the cold winter months, stick to darker shades of red and green that look elegant in snowfall.
2: Choose a flattering cut
When shopping for your maids’ dresses, keep everyone’s body type in mind. You might want to go with an A-line dress for girls who are curvier than others, while sticking to strapless gowns will flatter smaller frames. Lace is also a great option if you want bridesmaid dresses that look like they were made just for your wedding party (and can be dressed up or down depending on the season you’re getting married in)
3: Be sure to shop early
Even if your wedding isn’t on the horizon, it’s still a good idea to start browsing for dresses right away. If you’re doing your shopping online, this means bookmarking websites that offer styles you love (and even saving pics of bridesmaids dresses that look great on your girls). Even better? Re-pinning images from Pinterest or other sources on boards where you can easily find them later.
4: Consider accessories carefully
One of the most expensive aspects of bridesmaid dress shopping will probably be earrings and shoes. With that in mind, think about what kind of statement you want to make (and what kind of statement you want to avoid). If you’re going for a color-blocked, look for example, it might be fun to bring out certain colors with accessories that your bridesmaids can wear again and again.
5: Shop early
Just like the first go-round, make sure to give yourself plenty of time before ordering any dresses you’ve decided on. This means waiting until after your invitations have gone out（so everyone gets an accurate sense of how formal or casual things will be）and allowing at least 0 days for processing time in case there are any issues with measurements or shipping.
Hopefully these little guidelines can help with making choosing brides dresses easier — especially when the process is usually so difficult to begin with! More importantly, hopefully you could get the dress you like in the online store CICNIA!
