- Wedding: November 2013
My wedding gown is an Allure 2306 — it’s light ivory, taffeta and ruffly! I love it. There is a bit of beading and lace applique on the bodice. Our wedding will be in early November, and our colors are dark navy and warm olive. So here is my two-part question.
1) Bridesmaid dresses: I was thinking long dresses for my bridesmaids, of which there are 8, and who are all shapes and sizes. I’ve loved how chiffon looks so far (it’s actually been very flattering if the ruching is done right), but I thought I’d get your opinions! What type of dress do you think goes best?
2) Veil: I love, love, LOVE the look of drop veils, and in a close second are waltz/ballet length veils. I don’t really want a lot of trim, and my hair will be in some sort of updo. I am also having my best friend design and make some sort of bolero, but I don’t have a clue what that will look like yet. Do you think a drop veil would be too much?
Thanks for the advice! (Pictures appreciated!)
