I need inspiration and creative ideas from all of you ladies-with-vision out there (as I lack any!). So here’s how it goes, I give you parameters that are already set for my wedding (dress, venue, flower inspiration, etc) and you provide inspiration photos of how you would dress my bridesmaids!
So I’ve found my dress and I’m IN LOVE with it. It’s Jenny Packham Eden. It’s very 1920’s feeling, however I’m not necessarily going down that road as a THEME for my whole wedding.
So what we have so far.
Venue: (not actual venue, but similar setting and inspiration of how tent will look)
It’s in the backyard of a family members house in Vermont. Think green fields, mountain views, etc. We’re doing a Sperry tent with a mix of farm tables and round w/ white linen. Minimal decor (flowers – see below, a lantern here and there…nothing cluttered)
We’re going with local & seasonal as our primary determinants with the photo below capturing the feel of the flowers (note: this photo coincidentally also has my dress in it! Chose this as flower inspriation before I had the dress and realized later…this random girl and I clearly have simlar tastes )
Ok so let’s see what you would do!
(long, short, matching, mix-and-matched, solid colored, patterend — let’s hear about it and see it!)
The more pictures the better!

I would have them in varying shades of green close to these. Possibly the infiniti dress with different top shapes, and shorter hems. But I do love the long bridesmaid look.
No flower crowns, varying instead braids.

I agree with PP. Long flowy dresses in mismatched but coordinating shades.

- Wedding: Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception/The Gallery
I agree with PPs about mismatched/coordinating dresses in your palette (which is..?). I think soft, almost muted colors would be really pretty in that setting as well.

I disagree with PPs as my first thought was definitely not long gowns with that wedding dress.

Thank you ladies! Great ideas!!
Here are two mock-ups that I came up with last night. One is if I went for a neutral-maxi dress style for my BM’s and the other is more mix-and-match blues (all my BM’s are very much blue-color people…if I asked them to just show up in whatever on the wedding day there’s roughly a 95% chance they would all show up in hues of blue).
And blues: I was lazier with this mock-up and only took dress images from Rent the Runway’s website, so while it gives the sense of blue-hues I think I would be pickier about the actual dresses so that it’s not as busy as this mock up is.
I’m also playing around with the idea of them all being in the same floral-print chiffon fabric and then having different styles made. I’d probably go for a print that is quite neutral with only splashes of color (rather then a very strong-colored print).

Dessy Bridesmaids has a floral print in their lux chiffon and each girl could order a different style but do the same print – they call it ‘Indigo Rose’

i think mix and match sue wong style flapper dresses will go with any jenny packman 20s wedding dress.
