- Wedding: June 2013
After a bit of bridesmaid drama (seriously, is it even possible to get through this process without a little bit of tension??) we’re down to 3 girls. Now that we’ve got things sorted out, I can finally have the girls in a dress we can all agree on, while still adhering to my vision and color scheme. It’s a long, complicated story, but in the end, all’s well that ends well. 🙂
So. I had planned on going with mismatched bridesmaids dresses, but now that I have a little bit more say in what the bridesmaids wear (again, long story) I’m debating over going mismatched or going more uniform.
Our colors are light aqua and light pink. I’ll attach some of my original inspiration and a little of what’s actually turning out. It is so hard to decide because I love aqua, I love pink, and I love a nude/neutral color palette on bridemaids! Please let me know if you think I should go with 3 different color dresses, or all one color!
A bit of background on the bridesmaids: one of my girls has very light light skin, so she is requesting the blue dress. The other two could wear any color (lucky girls) as they’re of darker coloring… that being said, they’ve also said they’ll wear whatever dress I want them to (though, we’ve all agreed on the style) so it’s really down to my choice.
Here is a Bridesmaid/color inspiration board:
Row 1: The first picture is our inspriation centerpiece, the second is a more monochromatic color palette of bridesmaids dreses, and the 3rd is a shot of the same style dress in different colors (I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!)
Row 2: The dresses we’ve decided on, and the 3 colors I love. (As a side note, we will DEFINITELY cover up the white elastic waistband with a wide sain ribbon.)
Row 1: The first picture is our mock-up centerpiece from the florist, the 2nd picture is one of the bridesmaid dresses we’re considering, the 3rd picture is our venue.
Row 2: First picture is dress # 2, second picture is me in my dres (ivory satin, and I will have a chiffon removeable overskirt), and the third picture is dress # 3.
