Ooo I like that first dress, too!  So cute.

Our colors are pretty neutral – blush, ivory, silver/gray.  I was going to have blush bridesmaid dresses…

…but I decided to buy a blush dress!  I’m thinking ivory, (crazy and unexpected!) gray, or a medium dusty purple for bridesmaid dresses.  Two of my three girls (sister and cousin) requested straps, so here are some chiffon dresses I found that I like:

I’m thinking peaches/blush/light coral for dresses.  I’m considering mismatched dresses, and probably short.  I definitely want non-bridesmaids dresses my girls can actually wear again.  I love the wedges idea!!

@BreezyBride24:  No ours is taking place in a historic building.  Ceremony in the theater, reception downstairs.  I really wanted some aspect outdoors, but FI was against it and this way we don’t have to worry about weather.  It helps that the building is super gorgeous.  There is an amazing park right across the street (a brick street!) that we’ll do pictures in.

Mine are ordered! We went with chiffon in Victorian Lilac to match the sash on my dress. Each girl picked out her own dress. I was actually surprised when trying them on the number who decided to go strapless since before going in many wanted straps. We had a great time buying the dresses and I can’t wait to see them on all my girls. We’re going with silver or another neutral color shoes.

Oops! You said May weddings! Not quite Me yet! All of these visions are beautiful though.

Flowy and soft. Same color (blush like the first two dresses) dresses in different styles that have one same element (the rouching).

Gorgeous ideas, everyone!

the dress will be in champagne.

these are just ideas i’d love to go with, but just very unsure if they’d all work together.

@BreezyBride24:  Thanks! The dresses are all Alfred Angelo. I ordered them from a local boutique ‘Eva’s Bridals’.

Heres a few of the choices for my maids. They are all going to choose which cut they like. That’s the extent of my requeSt. They are going to wear their hair, make up, and jewelery however makes them comfortable.

@BreezyBride24:  well, the theme i want to go with is champagne, silver and mint.

 

i originally wanted mint for the dresses, but i cannot for the life of me find a colour dress resembling mint, all i can find is teal or sage… but i am IN LOVE with mint and wanted to find some way to incorporate it, so i came up with the conclusion of champagne dresses, mint nails, silver shoes. FI will have medium grey suit, white shirt, mint tie, and the groomsmen will have medium grey suit, white shirt, champagne tie.

flower girl’s (age 2.5) dress is light ivory, and planning on having silver shoes with a mint headband like this:
