- Wedding: October 2014
I have 5 bridesmaids. My sister is Maid/Matron of Honor and is very self conscious about her calves and legs. She has said she’d prefer long but will wear whatever I want her too. I’m pretty chill about the dresses. To be honest, I’ve already had enough anxiety and panic about getting married and this big event we’re planning and the life change, that putting EVERY decision on me is just too much.
All I’ve asked the girls is that their dresses be a shade of purple or grey (and not bright purple, but eggplant, lavendar, greyish purple, or even a dusty rose), it can’t be taffeta or that stiff, shiny fabric, and my preference is knee length, but I’m not firm on that one.
So far, one Bridesmaid or Best Man just bought a beautiful charcoal dress to wear for her brother’s wedding that she can wear again for mine. I love the dress from the photos I’ve seen, so no prob. Another Bridesmaid or Best Man has an eggplant coloured dress she bought for a wedding she was a guest at last year. (she wasn’t a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but it’s an alfred angelo Bridesmaid or Best Man dress). both dresses are chiffon or organza I believe, although I haven’t seen either in person.
Today my sister tried on a GORGEOUS satin eggplant dress that is long and it was killer on her… she’s very self conscious of her weight and this dress made her look AMAZING, like dynamite! My ONLY concern was the flow of the dresses together… But I’ve photoshopped them and I think they look fine….
What do you think? These are the 3. My sister is obviously the first (but the colour is quite distorted from my phone.. it was a much warmer, richer tone than this).
Bridesmaid or Best Man #2 is the 2nd dress and that IS the colour she has it in.
The Blue dress is the one my other Bridesmaid or Best Man just ordered in Charcoal… So disregard the colour…
Aside of the colours, do you think they look ok together? Keep in mind there’s still 2 more girls to find dresses and their dresses will also be knee length. I think bc my sister is Maid/Matron of Honor, she can get away with wearing long while the others are in short dresses.
Here’s my photoshopped photo:
How do they look together?
