I've been thinking alot about bridesmaid dresses lately... This last weekend we had a little BBQ and get together at our house with a few friends (NFR on TV, see my personal blog for that post...) Anyway, it turns out a few friends adds up to a third of our wedding party! Although my maids have been chosen and set in stone, more on that in a later post, Mr. M is still debating on his dudes. But I think he's got a pretty good idea...
So me and the ladies discussed dresses, and lots of things wedding, during our little get together. Here is my initial bridesmaid dress inspiration board created over at Style Me Pretty. As you can see there's lots of pink... But none are really the shade I'm going for.
The uniformity will come in with all of the girls wearing the same length (cocktail), same color (some shade of bright pink), and same material (sort of leaning towards chiffon).
Then each girl will be able to pick her own neckline.
My ladies vary in size and shape, absolutely. I have everything from my modest sister, who WILL be wearing some sort of cover up if she goes strapless, to my tall, lanky friend that will choose something sexy. And I love it!
I love that my girls are different. That's why they were chosen, each is different in their shapes, their heights, and most importantly, as a friend. Each is important to me in different aspect of my life. But as I said before, that's a topic for a post coming soon.
So... What do you think? Do you think that's a good balance of uniformity, but also individuality?
I want my maids to be able to choose a dress they will enjoy, and hopefully wear again. If you're gonna spend that much, you wanna wear it more than once! But I also want them to look like their supposed to be standing up there with me, not just some random guests that wondered to the front.
What about the material? It will be a summer wedding, in June. So something light and airy seems to fit the bill? Will chiffon do the trick? Do you have any opinions as to what will work best to keep the ladies comfortable, but still lovely? And classy, but not too formal? I would love to hear your opinions!!
