I don’t think it’s too informal but have you talked to your bridal party about wearing tutus?  I know at 30 I wouldn’t want to be wearing one so I can’t imagine at 40+ I’d want to weat one.  It seems like something for the flower girl.

My brother got married on NYE two years ago all of the bridesmaids wore gold sequins dresses.  It looked really cool because everyone picked their own dress out so all the different shades of gold look really beautiful.  Plus all of the women picked dresses they felt comfortable wearing.

I wonder about body types and your bridesmaids opinions of wearing tutus.  It could be cute but … tutus really look terrible on anyone with a rounder lower half.  And silver sweater seem difficult to find.  But as to the formality of it, it really depends on your venue and style of the party.  Since it is NYE people are likely to show up dressy in cocktail attire in my opinion.  So you definately don’t want your bridesmaids underdressed, in mismatched sweaters with the guests in cute little black dresses.  I would look for cute silver or plum cocktail style dresses, maybe look at nordstrom.com or macys.com.

mrshahn2b:  I am in my twenties and would NOT be down for wearing a tutu…I would definitely check with your bridal party first. I love the idea of all different sequin dresses!

My consideration for BM especially with money tight and even though you’re making the clothes, is to give them somethign that they’re comfortable in and would want to wear again. Tutus…I guess we’d have to know more about the vision for your wedding before giving suggestions, but off the batt, I think cute babies when I hear tutus as it relates to weddings.

 

If you’re thinking of a tulle skirt then I can understand and see it work really nicely with a sweater. Are you thinking of something like this? Sometimes it’s better to go with comfort over fashion. But if it’s anything like the picture, I’d say go for it.

mrshahn2b:  I think sequin bridesmaid dresses/sparkly would be fun NYE touch

I would no go the tutus…no offense, I would be mortified to have to wear one.

mrshahn2b:  

Perhaps tutu is a harsh word I was thinking like SKyAlex suggested something with a cute tulle skirt that you could easily add a silver sweater to.

Or you could go a little classier with the sequin look and look for a dress that might be more re-wearable for your bridesmaids and might have more of that chic NYC look…
