Hey all! So recently I bought a groupon(hopefully everyone knows what those are), for Claire’s jewelry. What I need help with is picking what jewelry for my bridesmaids. I don’t want to ask them because I would like it to be a surpise in a baggie full of surprises.
The dresses will be like this..but in black
With red or white flowers and red shoes. All of their hair will be in updos.
Let me know what ya think and why. Thanks! 🙂

i chose #3, but i also really really like #4. i just feel like they look the most sophisticated, i guess?

Im a fan of 4. Simple but with a bling factor. I would also wear it again… The others while nice, I wouldn’t wear probably everafter.

Cute dresses! I agree with imalittlebirdie’s take on it too and voted for 4

Are each of the bridesmaids going to style the dresses differently? If they are, why don’t you get each one a different set of jewelry that may match their personalities? Like if one is really outgoing and bold, get her a statement piece with chunky jewelry. If another is more reserved and laid back, you could get her something simple and understated. Love the dresses though! Where did you find them?

I’ll probably have them wear the same style..but haven’t decided yet. I’m actually having a co-worker’s mom sew them for me.
The picture is from a blog where the lady made this awesome tutorial on how to make the dresses! Here’s the link if you want to check it out!

@arametta127: You read my mind! I was going to suggest the same thing 🙂
OP, my BMs will be having different dresses as well….some strapless and with a ruffled collar or one shoulder. I am planning on giving them different jewelry since some will not be needing necklaces (non-strapless dresses). Each of my girls have a different personality and not every piece of jewelry will compliment each of the same. It’s a nice gesture to pick out something differently for each of them. Btw, lovely dresses!

I chose #2 as it comes with a bracelet as well. Since you can’t really wear a necklace with the third dress style I think that girl in particular will need the bracelet.

Thanks for the opinions so far ladies!

hmmm I can’t really say i’m a fan of any of those choices.
1. I think they don’t match the style of the dress. The jewelry is trying to be very formal and diamond looking with the dresses are made of jersey/knit fabric which makes them more casual and funky. I would look for something else to match the style of the dresses.
2. I think they all look a little immature. Like something more appropriate for 11 year old? 🙁 sorry.

I voted for style #4 because I think the simple accessories will pop on these black dresses 🙂

I like style 3 the best but I also like style 4. I like 3 because it’s got a lovely antique feel to it and I’m always drawn to that sort of thing. I also like the simplicity of style 4.

are they all getting the same jewellery? the halter dress may need a different type of necklace.

I like #4 by far the best 🙂 simple and pretty. The first and third look like they’re trying a bit too hard if that makes sense :-p and I don’t like the style of #2 that much.
