- Wedding: September 2013
We’re getting married in Rome and our church requires everyone including the bridal party and guests to cover backs, shoulders and arms to the elbow. So of course that makes it hard with bridesmaids dresses.
My girls hate jackets (we’re lawyers and it makes us all feel like we’re at work so I can relate.) and shawls are a last resort.
My Future Sister-In-Law is a seamstress and is making my gown and said she would make the bridesmaids dresses too (she’s my Maid/Matron of Honor and I love her to pieces). But as far as style we are thinking a modification on this http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/tadashi-shoji-asymmetrical-ruched-mesh-gown/3129719?origin=related-3129719-0-0-1-2
But I really want a blush pink tone for everyone. I think. Our ballroom is all frescos and can reflect either a reddish tone or a more silvery tone depending on the lighting and I haven’t figured out which I like more. So… help!
If I do this dress is blush/rose pinks is it going to wash out my pale friends? I can always add a redish or raspberry embroidery to break it up.
Any opinions or pictures/links to 3/4 or long sleeve bridesmaids dresses wanted!
