I’m beginning to stress about Bridesmaid dresses. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted, but as I look at more, and the girls try them on, I keep changing my mind.
We’re getting married at the end of May next year. I would like, if possible, to incorporate purple. However, if I can’t find the right shade/dress, I’m willing to negotiate!
Any suggestions or opinions or pictures of different shades, styles, lengths, etc. that they would recommend..?!?!
I’m open to anything right now.

If your venue has any specific colors that you’re stuck with (e.g. in the carpet or walls) I’d say try to work with / around that.
Otherwise, if you’re not too picky about the color, I think it’d be better to find the style first and then pick an available color that you like. Most dresses come in purple 🙂
Another option is to go w/ something more neutral (black, gray, brown, etc.) and incorporate purple with the flowers. That way they might wear it more after the wedding.

I love purple – ALL shades of purple. There was no way I could make up my mind choosing one shade of it. I decided to go with mismatched dresses, all in different shades of purple. I did stress a bit over making sure that everyone was in a different color, but I think I’m really going to love the end product. I’ve seen pictures where this has turned out AMAZING – all different colors, sometimes even different lengths and fabrics!
Here are some of my favorite pictures I’ve found: (sorry if they are a little big, this is my first time posting)

@laurenm78: What did you decide to do with the men if you ended up going with the mix of purples?

@skyblueme: This was a tricky one. But we ended up having a shade of purple that I loved that I couldn’t work into the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses – it’s kind of a “regular” purple, but not royal purple – so we decided that all the men will be wearing that color, which will complement all the girls’ dresses. I’m actually really excited about it!
