- Wedding: June 2012
Hello Fellow Bees! I am wondering if I could get opinions on a couple of ideas I have for bridesmaids dresses. Before I show pictures, I’ll explain my ideas a bit. My wedding is going to be vintage/eclectic and will be using a lot of different colors. My bridesmaids live all over the place and are all very busy people so it would be very difficult to get everyone together in person (one lives in Texas and another several hours away). So, because of this, I thought I would have my maids order their dresses through lightinthebox.com. I am going to tell them that they have to choose a dress that is knee length and chiffon fabric. Where I am running into trouble is the choice (or choices) of color I will give to my ladies. Below are two different ideas I have in my head right now. Please feel free to let me know your opinions! 🙂
First Idea: I will let the bridesmaids pick a knee length/chiffon fabric dress using any of the six colors below. I’m trying to stick to pastels for the dresses and these are the six pastels that I figured looked good together (although the coral color might be removed..haven’t decided yet). Since my wedding will be eclectic, I figured this could be a neat idea for their dresses. Plus, not every girl looks good in every single color. This gives options (which I like).
Second Idea: Let the ladies choose dresses in only lavender using the knee length/chiffon fabric idea from above. This may create more consistency. However, I worry that it won’t fit the eclectic nature of what I’m going for. Below is a picture of a bride who left the neckline and sleeve choice open to her maids but only let them use lavender as the color.
Any help would be appreciated! 🙂
