OK…let me set the scene. Wedding is up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire on Oct 2, 2010. It’s an outdoor wedding at a rustic bed and breakfast with a beautiful old farm house and big red barn. We’re deifnitely going for a rustic elegance “theme”.
So here are the bridesmaids and flower girl dress I have picked out from J Crew…the only difference is that I would add a brown sash to the flower girl dress./
Do you think the bridal gown I have chosen works with the whole theme? The silk taffeta of the sash is the same material as the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses and I think the bow on the back of the gown matches the bow on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses really well.
The flowers I posted is a arrangement my florist gave me when we met for the first time. Our flowers will be very similar but we’ll add more color with dahlias and chocolate cosmos.
Honest opinions please! 😉
ps….it’s my first time creating a board…so bear with me! lol! 😉

Looks gorgeous! I’m not totally sure that a brown sash would work with the flower girl’s dress but what about a headband/flowers in her hair?

I have to agree that the dress definitely “fits!” The lace will totally play up the “rustice elegance” you’re going for!

Ms. Min Pin….ohhhh how exciting! We picked such a perfect location for that time of year huh?? The foliage is always so amazing that time of year!
fanatic888…THANKS!! The flowers you see there are ranunculus. But we’ll add some dahlias and chocolate cosmos to get some more color so it’ll really POP against the dresses!
