My Brides people are a pretty eclectic bunch, so we will have some non-traditional dresses in my party ๐Ÿ™‚  My MOH is a homesteader nature mama, I’ve got a brides man, and my other maids are a glam-punk lady and an angrogynous tattooed rocker.  I’m letting them choose, I’m pretty excited about the results ๐Ÿ™‚  I wanted my bridal party to be able to express who they are in their dress, because they are all very important people to me.  I LOVE the idea of your vintage taffeta!  I’m sure that will be stunning!

I bought my gals dresses off the rack at Macy’s, so they definitely aren’t your “traditional” BM dress!

We’re making black, convertible 50’s swing dresses to go with my theme. We’re also making red crinolines to go underneath. I’m hoping my ladies are going to rock some red and leopard heels.

Wearing their own Little Black Dresses.  It’s the easiest, most cost effective option and will look very chic, in my opinion.  I’d love to see the taffeta bridesmaid dresses you’ve picked out–they sound great.

While my BM dresses are fairly traditional looking (see pictures below), they are non-traidtional in that I found them at Target for $40! ๐Ÿ™‚

My 3 are wearing a dress from kohls…..They all happened to have the same one. 2 of them are halters and one is the one in the pic below. I’m making them sage green chiffon wraps to cover up with

My 2 girls are wearing 1950’s halter-neck swing dresses identical to mine but the BM’s are floral and mines white (1 yellow floral and 1 blue)

mine was a spring 2010 party dress that I had to order super early or I wouldn’t get them.

I honestly don’t know, but can assume that it will be a resounding ‘yes’ since the only stipulation I have given are colour and length [blue & not floor length]. That and my BM’s are spread coaast to caost, so it’s unlikely they’ll pick the same thing, not just due to location, but vary taste/styles.

 

Although, mismatched BM’s seems to be a new & growing trend.

Mine are wearing the cotton embossed short a-line dresses from JCrew.  One bridesmaid said it was a “sun dress.”  I was a little annoyed when she said that, but then I let it go.  I like them, and they were only $62.  (bought last season)

I want classic black or aubergine dresses; but I will be giving each of my bridesmaid a wrap/shawl made of traditional Ghanaian print which I will want them to wear in some of the pictures and when entering the reception hall.

I told my maids to go buy a blue dress, as long as it isn’t teal, aqua or royal, I’m fine with it. Make sure you like it and don’t spend too much money. My hope is that they will all pick out something different that will fit their personalities and make beautiful pictures! Plus, they’ll wear it again! I think this is actually causing my sister quite a bit of stress because she doesn’t understand I’m happy if she is happy, so I told her I would take her shopping around prom season.
