- Wedding: June 2010
Help! My bridesmaids all picked out and agreed up on a Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dress in August. I was told, at the time, I could pick three colors (as long as they were the right fabric) from the swatch book and have in any order I wanted on the dress (bodice, sash, skirt)…So, I/we picked this order:
Ivory Bodice, Plum Sash, and Pewter Skirt.
My colors are Plum/Grey with a accent of chartruese (mainly from flowers). Fiance and GM’s tux are Grey from Calvin Klein.
Salon went to order the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses this week and Jim Hjelm said I can only pick TWO colors and the third will be the back of one of the fabrics (it is two-faced tafetta). Well, the back of the plum is BLACK and the back of the Pewter is Stone.
I don’t want any of these combos…So, I’m thinking of just doing two colors…
Ivory/Plum OR Ivory/Pewter
Thoughts? I’m attaching a pick of the original Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in three colors and FI’s tux. Jim Hjelm has a few similar designs that come in only two colors….I don’t know if I’d have to change styles if I go with only two colors….
