I don’t know about other brides out there, but for me- bridesmaid dress shopping was not f.u.n. Most of the dresses out there, for whatever reason, seem to be badly made, not flattering and expensive. Just what you are looking for in a dress you’re forcing others to buy, right??
There are a few designers who seem to buck this trend and actually produce high quality, beautiful dresses. One of which is Siri Designs. My sisters and I were lucky in that Siri Designs warehouse is in SF and we were able to schedule a viewing / try-on session with the designer herself assisting us!!
Here are our favorite dresses from that session:
Our biggest takeaway from the Siri experience was that structured fabrics and styles flatter everyone and look a bit less “typical”. Previous to this we had been looking at drape-y gowns in chiffon- now we knew that taffeta was more our style. I would highly encourage anyone to check out Siri – beautiful designs AND the designer is super nice. 🙂
Did anyone else out there struggle with bridesmaid dress shopping? Any particular lessons-learned that made it easier?
