I’m in a pickle with regards to my bridesmaids dresses. Here is a blah-blah timeline of what I’ve thought/said.
January 09- “Oh yeah, we’ll just do black cocktail dresses, probably not even bridesmaids dresses at all. Just regular. Oh, and bright shoes!”
Then I bought my dress. My fiance is right next to me, so I won’t elaborate on the dress, but I think a lot of y’all have seen it. It’s a super fun dress.
That got me thinking that black might be too harsh for a summer wedding, and harsh with colored heels in the summer, plus harsh with the dress.
Then I started thinking/loving the light gray dresses with bright heels. I love color, and it was a nice way to do color and a neutral, without being too harsh.
Well, I think I’m being vetoed on the light gray. (Makes me a little sad panda). Though I do agree it might wash e’erybody out. Anyway, moving on.
So then I trudged back over to the black, still wondering if black and color was too harsh for the dress and season. (I do love black and color, though. It’s evident in my engagement pictures. Hello, rainbow cranes and hot pink tights and black dress…)
THEN I saw Snow’s blog post on Anna Elyse dresses. I went to the website, and fell freakin’ in love with the short dresses, namely the Clarissa and Peggy.
I’d just get ’em to pick a short dress, in a certain fabric… and… well, now I’ve started dreaming of color combos. Even doing mockups of different combos of 4 colors. (4 maids).
Now for the questions…
Is the black+colored-shoes-thing too much or harsh for my dress/season?
Is it a jerky thing to do to go from black to colored?
Should I stay away from gray even if it’s darker?
Would it be a jerky thing for me to have them get actual bridesmaids dresses if I end up doing black?
