Wondering how you're going to choose bridesmaids dresses with your besties when you have a vision in mind but want to make sure they're comfortable and confident on your big day?

Selecting the perfect bridesmaids' dresses is a pivotal part of wedding planning. We understand the importance of harmonising colours, fabrics and silhouettes to create a cohesive, visually stunning bridal party ensemble. 

Our aim is to help you every step of the way - so whether you're coming to see us in store with a complimentary appointment, utilising our sample dress service or just getting ready to order your bridesmaids dresses online, we want to help you choose colours, fabrics and styles that suit your wedding theme but also suit the individual styles and body types of your bridesmaids.

Set the Tone with Your Wedding Theme

Start by considering the overall theme and colour palette of your wedding. Your bridesmaids' dresses should seamlessly blend with your dream aesthetic.

If you're aiming for a classic and timeless look, neutral tones like blush, navy, or champagne may be ideal. For a more vibrant and modern feel, consider bolder hues or even mix-and-match colors within a defined or playful palette.

Consider the Season

Light and pastel shades tend to work well for spring and summer weddings, while richer, deeper tones are perfect for fall and winter celebrations. We offer a wide array of colours suitable for every season, ensuring your bridal party looks stunning year-round. We also offer a custom colour service if you have a very particular shade in mind!

Coordinate without Controlling

Coordinating doesn't necessarily mean everyone has to be in the same colour. We have a variety of styles that can be mixed and matched in the same or complementary colours, allowing your bridesmaids to express their individuality while maintaining a cohesive overall look.

Think about Fabric Finish

The fabric of the dresses can really impact the overall look and feel. Our made to order collection can be crafted in your choice of plain viscose, twill, satin crepe or high shine satin. Satin crepe is our most popular finish, offering a flowy feel with a light sheen. If you're unsure about which fabric to choose, get in touch with our team bridesmaids@blak.co.nz and we can help you decide!

Comfortable and Confident Bridesmaids

Every bridesmaid is unique, and their dresses should reflect that. Encourage your bridesmaids to choose dresses that complement their body types and make them feel their most confident. It's a big day for them too! We offer a variety of silhouettes, ensuring there's a flattering option for every shape and size.

Sample Service and Complimentary Appointments

If you need a little extra help to decide on your bridesmaids styles, take advantage of our complimentary appointments in store at Newmarket and Mount Maunganui.

Our one-on-one appointments allow your bridesmaids to try on different styles and colours, ensuring they find the perfect match. Seeing the dresses in person allows everyone to visualise the final look - but if you can't make it in store, you could use our sample dress service instead!
