Bridesmaids do not come easy. Many brides even hate working with them owing to the fact that they cause some bout of headache to get together. Foregoing them is an option, yet many of your guests will be disappointed because, believe you me, they actually come anxious to see your fashion sense shine through your maids.

Although maids are usually dressed to look uniformly. Try letting them stand out as individuals.The maids at Hellen Lukoma’s weddings looked stunning in purple. Each one stood out in there own dress which had a different design at the bossom.
Lilac is a colour you get when purple has a twist to it. This colour is stylish, unique and will make your maids pop. Lilac has many shades but whatever shade you choose, it will definitely suit all of your girls, brown or dark. Sylvia Namutebi’s maids wore Lilac for her first wedding anniversary
