by Danielle Salazar May 08, 2014

Creating a wedding that’s both unique and memorable is one of the biggest challenges (and most enjoyable parts!) of the planning process. You want your big day to represent you as a couple, but why not also consider incorporating the personalities of those special ladies who you’ve chosen to stand by your side? With Pinterest right at our fingertips, there are endless ideas of how to individualize your wedding day for your besties. Need an idea? Try a “will you be my bridesmaid” gift that is unique to your relationship or consider making a “meet the party” section in your ceremony program. Maybe you could personalize the bridal party attire and allow them to pick their own shoes and hairstyles, or try a gorgeous and trendy approach of mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses for a fun look that everyone will love!

Mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses is a trend that’s picture-perfect.

Having mismatched maids is a style that we are seeing more and more of and we have to admit – we’re obsessed! Your bridesmaids want to feel confident and beautiful walking along side you, so it’s important to make them feel just as special as you do. What better way than allowing your girls to choose a style that flatters both their figure and personality? Not only are mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses a fun and unique way to bring individuality to your bridal party attire, but knowing your girls are confident in what they’re wearing will keep them happy and comfortable as they dance the night away!

Measurement Guide - How to Measure for Your Size

Taking Your Measurements

For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn’t be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.

Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.

Bust Size
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

Waist Size
While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.

Hip size
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5” (size 12), your waist measures 31” (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5” (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body.

Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
