None of my ideas seem to be cohesive SOOO opinions please..
With these super cute bubble dresses for the BMs
and what theyll carry is then still up in the air (any suggestions?)
Bridesmaid or Best Man is Lapis (Aka eggplant purple) carrying lanterns

ooo the DB dress will go really well with yours! and i say have them carry nosegay bouquets in whatever color you think is best. the lantern thing is an interesting idea but a bit awkward? i dunno, i just think that flowers just add to how pretty all the girls look standing up there! what are your wedding colors??

I was thinking eggplant and black.. but Im really not set in stone on anything.. definitely black will be involved… I love the lanterns only because its different and we like non-traditional ideas… We thought about sparklers but I just have a fear of one of my sisters lighting me on fire accidently of course! Oh and it might help to say that the wedding will be at 8pm in a garden under the stars (weather permitting)

love the first dress for you! and i think either of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses would work with it. pick yours first- then decide on theirs.

@csbride: ha I was hoping to cheat and pick theirs first which would decide mine cuz I hate making decisions for my self!

uh oh.. I like all of them. I would say go with the 1st dress if the wedding is more modern and fun. Go with the 2nd if you want something a bit more classic. I, too, think both Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses would work with both. You could always let the BMs vote if you really can’t decide.

The first dress is the same dress I’m wearing for my spring wedding…. so funny cause I have yet to see anyone on here with that dress. 🙂
I like the second Bridesmaid or Best Man dress better myself as I don’t like the bubble look, not wedding enough for me. But honestly you have to go with your gut on what YOU want to wear cause you can always find Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that will work but your dress the the one that means the most.

oh sorry, i missed that you were asking opinions on wedding dresses too, i thought the 2nd wedding dress was just an ivory colored Bridesmaid or Best Man dress! which means i obviously vote on dress #1 for you! also, i totally get wanting something non-traditional. it was funny, i found that as i was planning my own wedding at first i was all about going with what hasn’t been done before or things that are non-traditional. but as planning went on i started to lean towards more traditional ideas! we had a mix of the traditional and the non, and i am so glad we did. so that may be something to keep in mind. now knowing more details, i def think the lanterns could be really pretty, especially with your wedding at dusk and if you keep the rest of the lighting low and glowy too 🙂 that would be really pretty! i’d def do that over sparklers, cuz they would go out really quickly unless you get bigger ones which just create alot of smoke! not good.

Definitely the first one (the first Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is also more interesting than the second one)

My dress is the 2nd one, but I wanted something a little more classic, lol. I love it! Have you tried both on? The first gown is gorgeous and if I were more gutsy I’d try it :-). I think the first one with bridesamdi dress will look amazing together! What sort of style are you going for? Something more modern or classic? Good luck 🙂
