@AndysCraftsNmore:  How many ppl are in your WP? I found the flowers you like too.

Also some of the things you posted (the choose a seat not a side sign and the jewelry) you can probably find on etsy.com

I think you should just do the necklace, the bracelet isn’t as elegant as everything else in your theme. LOVE those black lilies!!

Okay, so your theme isn’t exactly my taste, but there’s no reason something a bit more dark can’t be totally romantic. And I love the dark callas, and the tribute photos. Here are some ideas for a dark wedding that I love:

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I have no problem at all with DB. I purchased my dress from there and all my BMs and FGs got there dresses from there too in the chiffon material (the material you like) My girls were all different sizes too and that material flattered them the most. Is your wedding going to be indoors or outdoors? Do you have your venue picked out?

I think the DB color you would be looking for is Berry

Forget the bracelet and just do the necklace. The braclet reminds me of something you can buy from Hot Topic. 

I found a specific color I like by a designer. I am just telling my girls what length, color and material and they can pick out whatever style they want to wear. 

I am not a big rose person either. They are the “typical” flower. I am making my bouquet out of broochers and possibly fake flowers. Have you thought about making your own out of feathers? 

 

Your theme fits perfectly with the time of the year. It also reminds me of a gothic wedding.

Like pp said, this isn’t really my style.  However, i think it can absolutely be beautiful! My brother and sister-in-law didn’t use this theme, but definitely had some of these elements.  The callas (both light and dark) and black BM dresses.

I think that the white/cream callas would look gorgeous against the girls’ dark dresses and the black ones would look perfect against your ivory dress.  I think either dress idea will look beautiful! I love the choose a seat sign! That’d be easy to DIY.  I think I would just go with a necklace for the BMs – the bracelet might be too much next to the bouquets and you probably don’t need another DIY project on your plate!

I also love the idea of having table names & pictures instead of numbers! That’s a beautiful way to incorporate those important people who have passed away, and it goes well with your theme.  I think this would be a lot more tasteful than the skulls, based on your current circumstances.

I was going to suggest chiffon and I saw a pp did already.  I had a variety of BM sizes like you (I think 1 size 6 or 8, 1 size 10, and 1 size 12.  And heights ranging from 5’3″ to 5’9″ or 10″).  I did knee-length chiffon dresses.  The taller girl got hers with extra length and it was perfect. The shortest girl got hers shortened and it was perfect 🙂 I had straps added to all of the dresses, which gave a bit more comfort for the bustier girls.  I feel like chiffon is very flattering for all sizes.

I think you could tell the girls length, fabric, and color (maybe from 1 designer so the colors all coordinate) and then they can pick what they prefer (strapless or not, deep V or not, etc…).  One way that you could tie them together would be to then give them all a sash to wear (black on the burgundy dresses or burgundy on the black).  Then, although the dresses may have different shapes etc, they would look more uniform.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  Your locations are beautiful. I would suggest going with knee length chiffon dresses as a PP did. Are the BMs wearing the shoes you previously posted too or just you? Definately knee length if they are to show off the shoes!

I think all of your ideas are a really tasteful way to do a dark theme.  I would howver not do the bracelet, it just doesn’t seem like it goes with the rest of your inspiration. The necklace is really pretty though.
