I am receiving tremendous feedback from all of you about my own dress dilemma. Now, if I could just decide on what my bridesmaids should wear…
I am having a fall, outdoor, rustic wedding at my family’s farm in Ohio. I want the theme throughout the day to be colorful and fun! Initially I thought mismatched dresses from Etsy were the direction I wanted to go in. Think different dresses with details of ruffles, lace, in neutral colors such as blush, grey, and “neutral”. I have since considered putting them in different brightly colored dresses in an ombre order of sorts – Maid/Matron of Honor in Magenta, and the others in descending colors of pink and then blush. My latest idea was to put them all in a neutral color, like light grey, but have them wear a bright statement necklace with a pair of heels matching each of their statement necklaces..I will have three maybe four girls total including the Maid/Matron of Honor and I have included a mood board so that you have an idea of what we are going for…
I look forward to seeing/reading your thoughts!
Fall 2014 bride-to-be.

@MissPickleJean: I love the idea of grey dresses with each girl having a bright necklace an flowers. Looks brilliant.

@Soon2BD-CBee: Thank you! I am (as I’m sure many brides are) a huge fan of a fantastic pair of shoes. You know how sometimes you hear, “This is a great bridesmaid dress. Surely you’ll be able to wear it again.” At least if they cannot wear the dress, they’ll want to wear the accessories, right?! Maybe a taupe linen strapless dress would work if not light grey…

@MissPickleJean: yep for sure, i’d be so stoked to wear my own colour as a bm. Love it! It’s like an updated version of a rainbow wedding. I really wanna see your wedding photos.

@raindropslollipops: I haven’t decided on a dress yet… My mom is visiting in October so hopefully I’ll find one once she is here! As for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I go back and forth every day but just took a peek on ModCloth and love the idea of mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in the same color palette. Light gold sounds like it will look great with that dress!
