Has anyone ever done mismatched bridesmaids dresses in black? Charcoal grey seems to be impossible, and i’m looking at alternatives!
FI is worried my BMs in little black dresses will look like a funeral… thoughts?

@eastcoast: You can google image search – there are lots out there! I have asked my bridesmaids to wear whatever black short dress they want. I think its going to look cute 🙂
Regarding the funeral thing – just tell your FI everyone will be smiling, so clearly it wont be a funeral, haha.

@eastcoast: I shot a wedding like that, but no self-promotion means I can post a link. 😀 PM me, and I’ll happily share their gallery with you!

This was a wedding I was in not mine, but her colors were blush and lavender we all got to choose our dresses

@eastcoast: My best friend did this for her upscale but laidback (ie, at a fancy restaurant, formal, but not at all stuffy) wedding, and she just let us all choose black cocktail dresses that we liked and yellow heels of our choosing. She gave us all matching pearl necklaces and we carried matching flowers and we looked AWESOME. And we loved her soooo much for not making us buy an expensive dress that wouldn’t look quite right on any of us. We felt like ourselves, in a style that fit and flattered us, and we looked classy but not matchy-matchy. It was the best bridesmaid experience I’ve had- and I’ve been in six weddings.
We definitely did not look funereal. Who wears a cocktail dress to a funeral?

Mine was like this, the dresses looked great together.
I even had the groomsmen pick their own suits (all of their suits are different)with certain criteria, and my bridesmaids wore any red shoes they wanted.
The black is bold not for everyone, but not a funeral.lol

My girls are wearing the top dresses with purple shoes and purple flowers.

@eastcoast: My girls:
I asked them to find black dresses with at least a hint of lace to match my lace wedding dress. They could spend however much they wanted and buy whereever they wanted.

@meranda: You all look gorgeous! Those colours together are beautiful

@Bubblesmcgee: Our wedding is definitely more laid back than upscale but my girls seem pretty excited about choosing their own dresses (without really having to worry about color matching) so as long as they are happy, i’m happy!

All these combinations look great! You’re all putting my mind at ease. And I love how the colors in the bouquets pop against the black!
