My aunt has very graciously offered to make the bridesmaid dresses at cost (shes quite talented if you give her a pattern!). Anyway, i need to find some dress options to give my girls to choose from so we can start picking, as im going fabric shopping with my aunt later in the week.
The colour scheme is gold/blush pink/cream, and itll be a december wedding. I love glitz and would like there to be some on their dresses also, and for them to be full length.
So far ive seen these: (the first one not in green)
What do you think of the colours? Do you have any suggestions? 🙂

The two pink dress at the bottom are gorgeous. I find the “gold” and pink with silver top pretty but the hues might wash people out. Depends on skintone I’m sure but I’d do all pink – most people can do that pretty pink quite well. Neutrals can be rough!

@Rachael1287: That’s great she is able to help. I love all the styles. I like the colors on the second and last photos the best. Very glamourous and pretty! Let us know what you end up going with and what they end up looking like.

I love the bottom two! I think the very bottom is my favourite 🙂

The very last one is definitely the winner for me!
It’s absolutely gorgeous, and I love the pink!

Love the 3rd picture.. the one on the left especially. The 4th picture is also beautiful, and will probably be much easier to construct for your aunt. Beading can be very difficult/time consuming!

I’m voting for pink ones. I’m biased though. My bridesmaid dresses are pink.

Love them all!
My only concern is that some of the dresses look kind of close to white- they might not compliment your dress in photos- be it pure white or ivory . . .

@Rachael1287: I adore all of the gowns you posted. Will they all be wearing the same dress? Are they all about the same size/shape? To give your girls more selections, you might include gowns with different necklines, as well:

@LilRhodyGem: oddly one of the bridesmaids said she thought gold would compliment more? I know nothing about skin tones though haha. The 4 of the girls are pale (one being blonde and one being a readhead) and one is from cyprus so naturally darker skin…
Thats a very good point. Will have to make the colour a bit darker…
Yeah thats what i thought, but she lives near a huge market thats famous for Sari material, so we were going to look to see if we can just buy a sheet of sparkly or beaded fabric for the top 🙂
Those are some lovely dresses you’ve posted! Thanks! Yes the girls are all relatively the same shape, though some have bigger boobs than others. Its funny, the girls with smaller boobs are saying that the big boob girls will need straps to hold their boobs in, the big boob girls are saying the small boob ones will need straps as they have nothing to hold it up. They are having this little mini-feud about it – im staying well out of it haha!

@MlleFabuleux: that middle dress is stunning! Where is it from?
