Bridesmaids Daze

Look, I picked out the bridesmaids’ dresses! Ha, just kidding ladies!

Lately I’ve been getting a bit ahead of myself. There’s tons of stuff I need to take care of such as registering, lighting, flowers, and, um, MY dress—but this week I’ve been stuck on bridesmaids’ dresses. And when I say stuck, just know that I mean obsessing.

To be honest, I was fine with the idea of my BMs picking their own dresses. In fact, I liked the idea that it would take some of the stress away from me. As long as they were the same color and fabric, I didn’t mind if the girls wore different styles to complement their figures.

    I really like mismatched dresses as long as they are in the same color palette. The Todd Pellowe shot just looks like you and a bunch of your wedding guests to me. Although I did have a friend who did a beach wedding and had all her girls pick a bright beachy color for their dresses, aqua, yellow, coral, fuchsia…it looked great!

    I’ll try to do the same thing, same color and fabric, but feel free to create your own style. It makes it more personal, besides having ALL my BMs living in different parts of the country might make the process a bit more complicated.

    I love the mismatched look, but I’m partial. 😉

    I like the idea of incoporating mismatched dresses! it will be easier for the bridesmaids to choose the dress styles they want.

    I love the mismatched look…yet my three ladies ended up going with the same dress! My sister later told me that she really didn’t like the idea of picking out her own dress, which I didn’t expect to hear! 🙂

    I love mismatched with a common element (some or all of color/fabric/length)!

    Oh no the Mori Lee dress is discontinued!?! It must just be too adorable for the world to handle. I’m going to have to go Ebay hunting now. And I love the mismatched look.

    All my maids are wearing the same dress but in different colors of their choosing within our palette – we are so excited!

    I love love love the micmatched look! If it wasn’t for the ridiculously large size of our wedding party, I would be all over it. But 10+ different dresses squeezed into that tight space would be just a bit too much we ultimately decided. I can’t wait to see what your girls end up wearing!
