- Wedding: April 2015
Alright I’m going to try to sum this up as fast as possible, I REALLY need opinions here, so here goes nothing. I bought all of my bridesmaids dresses on clearance at JCP for $30.00. (YAYYY so awesome!!!) Anyway, I searched and searched to find all of the right sizes and multiple stores and finally did after a few weeks of searching. Well this was literally the same month I got engaged and I ended up adding a bridesmaid a few months down the line. Of course by that time I couldn’t get another one of the dresses because they were no longer in inventory. It actually worked out because I decided to give my added bridesmaid my MOH’s dress (that actually wouldn’t have fit my Maid/Matron of Honor anyway), and just decided to try to find my Maid/Matron of Honor a different dress. Being my colors are blush and light grey (think nude/peach blush more so than pink blush), I decided it was going to be IMPOSSIBLE to match the blushes of the other bridesmaids. So I decided to put my Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man in light grey (groomsmen are in grey tuxs’). Now here is my problem, I found a dress on LBD.com that is the exact same style of my other bridesmaids and in the perfect grey, (minus the rhinestones my bridesmaids have on their dress, the grey one has none). I was going to get that and play it safe because my Maid/Matron of Honor tried one on like it in the store and it’s looked great (we didn’t get it there because I now life half way across the country from her and it was the wrong grey). Anyways, I decided I wasn’t in love with the LBD plain grey dress and it wasn’t fair because I wanted her to stand out/have rhinestones out of everybody. So decided to search on. I found an amazing dress on BHLDN.com that is the perfect grey and we are both OBSESSED with it, however……My bridesmaids dresses are chiffon and this dress from BHLDN is tulle (very soft light weight tulle, doesn’t really look like tulle in the pic I dont think). I was wondering if you guys think they would go together well beings they are different fabrics. I found a belt that I could add to my Maid/Matron of Honor dress to give her some more sparkle, that ties in with my FG’s belts. Do you think she would stand out too much? Do the colors not go together?? Textures??? I have attatched all of the pictures, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!<br /><br />Not to mention, I wont get to see my Maid/Matron of Honor again until the wedding, I just moved to LA and she is in Iowa, so there is also no way for me to see the dresses next to each other, I’m relying on you guys! <br /><br />My Bridesmaids Dresses<br /> <br /><br /> Dress I would like for my Maid/Matron of Honor (Minus this belt & she would wear straplesss option)<br /><br /><br />The way she would actually wear the dress (In grey of course) <br />& With this belt! (Almost identical to my flower girls belts)<br /><br /><br />The play it safe dress…Wouldn’t be able to wear the belt cause of the higher waistline.
