I am having a barn reception in late August. It will most likely be HOT and I want everyone to be comfortable, including my bridesmaids. We are also going to let people know that informal, nice attire is appropriate. What do you think about putting them in matching sundresses, rather than traditional bridesmaid dresses? I was thinking some shade of blue with sunflowers – a blue/yellow scheme to incorporate bright summer colors and a barn-type flower. Any opinions on this?

Check Anthropologie! They always have cute dresses that can be used as bridesmaid dresses!

I think this is a great idea. Check out J.Crew…they have a wonderful cotton sundress that the bridesmaids can wear again. I love mine from there!
Edit: sorry the pics aren’t working…here’s the link:

I think it’s a GREAT idea! This was my original plan as well, but I couldn’t find a barn. 🙁 Check out Mrs. Meatball’s BM’s dresses… they would be perfect!

Sounds pretty, just be careful of what shades you pick or they could end up looking like little girl’s Easter dresses. I’d stick with slightly bolder shades, but that’s just me. I think the idea of sundresses is excellent! You could even go with maxi dresses in a lightweight material. It would be so elegant and go perfectly with a barn wedding, IMO.

I am having a wonderfull barn wedding… But i live in Oklahoma so barns are easy to find…I am doing a button up shirt dress from Target. They are cute, and will be loved by all. I also ordered cute cowboy boots for them. Mine are royal blue, My flowers are sunflowers also. So cute together. ….. You may also try Forever21. They have some real cute plaid dreses. (not for sure if you want a print) I wanted my girls to have some thing they could wear again.
