Furt Glee Episode & Glee girls show us: How to Choose Bridesmaid Dresses for Different Size Bridesmaids. The Glee cast members & Gleeks got to enjoy a Glee Wedding on Glee Season 2. The cast of Glee girls displayed an amazing way to mix & match red bridesmaid dresses for the music filled wedding.

How to choose bridesmaid dresses for different size bridesmaids:

We know brides are sometimes wondering the answer to “how to find a bridesmaid dress that is flattering.”  Well, the Glee Wedding Episode helped answer that.  Looking beyond the funny Glee quotes, Glee music and all the wonderful Glee songs, the girls of the Glee cast members wore mix and match red bridesmaid dresses!  Ah, there you have an answer – mix and match bridesmaid dresses to flatter the different bodies. Check out our amazing bridesmaid dresses flattering for all figures!>>

For my fellow Gleeks & Wedding Planning Brides…

Being that I am a HUGE Gleek myself of the fabulous Glee TV Series, I tend to rewatch Glee episodes all the time… I couldn’t help but notice the brilliance of the mix and match red bridesmaid dresses on all the Glee girls, I had noticed it before but it really clicked for me to write about it.  All the Glee girls have different bodies and styles…let this, YES THE GLEE WEDDING EPISODE, be a guide for you brides having issues dressing your very different bodied bridesmaids.  Seems silly I know to have the Glee TV Series be a guide for your wedding, but it can help and it’s why I am here as well. Based off the six red bridesmaid dresses from Glee during the Glee wedding episode, I have pulled together affordable bridesmaid dresses – not just any bridesmaid dresses either, but only Alfred Sung bridesmaid dresses to help you understand the rules and guidelines of mixing and matching. If you decide to go this route for your bridal party, be sure to follow some guidelines so you don’t have a hodge podge standing next to you.

Choose one designer only:

  1. Each designer’s fabrics and colors are different from one another
  2. When you select only one designer, it will be able to find the exact same color or similar color of that shade in another dress style
  3. I only chose Alfred Sung Gowns to show you examples for the red bridesmaid dresses from Glee to help guide.

Select one fabric to avoid many variations and shades of a color:

  1. This is why I selected all Alfred Sung dresses; Alfred Sung gowns usually come in many colors options and more than one fabric option…more to choose from which makes it easier on the bride and her bridesmaids!
  2. If you are DARING…I personally like seeing different subtle shades of a color because I think it gives dimension, but only to an extent…
  3. The fabrics need to have similar characteristics in order for me to like the variation.  Ex.) I wouldn’t allow chiffon and satin fabrics together.
  4. I have one fabric in my examples of the dresses from Glee, Peau De Soie, but I do have an example of what I mean as far as two fabrics with the top four dresses above.  I went with stiffer and rawer style fabrics, Peau De Soie and Dupion.  What do you think?
  5. Keep in mind – this is what I like; the safer, more common, and highly recommended route is to stick with one designer, one fabric, and one color.  You can still mix and match with Alfred Sung dresses following that rule, but if you have a different/daring vision like me then go for it.
I chose only one designer, Alfred Sung Bridesmaid Dresses (which are all affordable bridesmaid dresses to help your girls save), so I don’t have exact replicas or copies of the red bridesmaid dresses from Glee, but I did find a great selection very close to each.  All of the female Glee cast members have not only such different body types, but different personalities.  Since they do have such different body types though, the costuming directors were able to figure out how to find a bridesmaid dress that is flattering for each Glee gal!  Check it out for yourself and see if this is something you may want to try for your bridesmaids as well…

Rachel's Red Bridesmaid Dress:

The Rachel from Glee red bridesmaid dress is a v-neckline with tank top straps, and a pleated skirt.  Glee Lea Michele has a smaller figure, and then Rachel from Glee has sort of a little girl take on style so this dress was perfect for the character.  Below are Alfred Sung Bridesmaid Dresses I found with similar features…

Quinn's Red Bridesmaid Dress.

The Quinn from Glee dress is a bateau neckline with a keyhole and a pleated skirt.  Quinn from Glee has a very conservative way of dressing because the Dianna Agron Glee character is trying to show a sweet, innocent side – she has to BE PROM QUEEN!  I found four Alfred Sung dresses similar to the Quinn from Glee dress…

Mercedes' Red Bridesmaid Dress.

The Mercedes Glee red bridesmaid dress is a deep V-neckline with cap sleeves, tie sash and pleated skirt.  The Miss Diva Glee Amber Riley is a very beautiful, curvaceous young lady so this dress not only flatters her body but is so glamorous and flirty!  Mercedes rocked this dress – true diva right there

Santana's Red Bridesmaid Dress.

The Santana Glee red bridesmaid dress is a sweetheart shaped neckline with a ruched bodice and pleated skirt (also with spaghetti halter straps). The Naya Rivera Glee character is very seductive and sensual so she is wearing a little more revealing neckline for her bustier chest, curvy body! Here a few similar strapless options…

Tina's Red Bridesmaid Dress.

The Tina from Glee red bridesmaid dress is a straight neckline with halter straps and a pleated skirt.  The Glee Jenna Ushkowitz character is a tad shy, but has come out of her shelltrying to become an Asian Icon; her style is similar to a flirty, playful, punkish Avril Lavigne look. Here are some very similar strapless options I found…

Brittany's Red Bridesmaid Dress.

The Brittany Glee red bridesmaid dress is straight neckline with a halter strap, small bow at the waist, and small pleating in the skirt. The Heather Morris Glee character is very ditzy, but fun, outgoing, and slim.  This little dress is perfect for her personality & body; here are some great similar Alfred Sung dresses as options There you have a wonderful combination of affordable bridesmaid dresses with darling Alfred Sung gowns to create the perfect mix and match bridal party to flatter each of your bridesmaids’ different body types; plus some options similar to the Glee dresses on the Glee wedding episode if you were in love with any of those red bridesmaid dresses.  Now for a few other fun stuff from the Furt Glee Episode including a Glee wedding clip, my favorite Glee wedding song, and more! The Gleek inside me just couldn’t hold back  :)

My Favorite Glee Wedding Song:

This was a tough decision because I loved them all, but I think I have to go with “Marry You” originally by Bruno Mars.  It’s not the most fitting song for a wedding when you listen to the lyrics, but it was so fun seeing the Glee cast sing and dance down to the aisle to it.

Some Great Glee Quotes from Furt:

"My Power Rangers have gotten married and divorced in so many combinations it's like they're Fleetwood Mac." ~ Kurt from Glee "You know that saying, that when God closes a door, he opens a window? Well, sometimes out of nowhere, he'll do you one better, and he'll kick a whole wall down." ~ Burt (Father of Kurt from Glee) “Are you sure we should release 300 live doves indoors? Won’t that get kinda... messy?” ~ Finn from Glee…   That’s why we feed them glitter, Finn.” Kurt from Glee I hope I could help you with your bridal party selections with a little assistance from the cast of Glee TV Series. Alfred Sung dresses are so adorable and wonderful options for you to dress the ladies up for your special day!  Good luck. ~ Sarah Other Blogs You’ll Love: Eden Bridesmaid Dresses Under $100 Offered At Wedding Shoppe Inc.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
