- Wedding: October 2015
First let me say since getting engaged, these boards have been so helpful!! You ladies give good advice!
SO….My wedding is October 30, 2015 and we are having a military wedding in a 19th century castle. We are going for a dark, gothic (dont laugh) and sexy theme I guess. Our colors are black red and ivory. I am not wearing an all white dress, it will be ivory and black. All of the 4 groomsmen plus the groom will be in military dress blues. I don’t want too many colors clashing with the uniforms so I cannot decide what to do about these dresses.
I originally wanted purple dresses and found one I loved, but worried about clashing colors and it wouldn’t be formal enough. I found two more amazing ones last night at David’s Bridal that two of the BM’s love. I was also thinking of having them all wear black.
I have 4 bridesmaid and they cannot all agree on one dress. They also have different body types. I want them to LOVE their dress and to feel good about themselves but every one I like my sister (bridesmaid) doesnt like it. One Bridesmaid or Best Man is 5’2″ and slim. my sis is 5’5″ and pear shaped like 140lbs, my Maid/Matron of Honor is 5’3′ pear shaped and about 170lbs and my other Bridesmaid or Best Man is 5’4″ and a thinner pear shape.
If I post pics of these dresses, can you guys give me your advice and opinions? Should I just let them all wear a different dress? The problem is I hate most of the standard Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses out there.
Tell me what you think?
