- Wedding: September 2014
Hey bees! I need your fashion advice.
I made the mistake of choosing colors and looking for bridesmaids dresses I love before I actually found my dress. I’m smitten with the Alfred Sung line in the color FUSION. I LOVE the vibrant blue color of these bridesmaids dresses, and I had originally planned on wearing an ivory wedding dress, which would have worked, no problem.
Trouble is, when wedding dress shopping, I fell in love with Maggie Sottero’s “Emma.” It comes in Ivory, but I was super surprised to discover that it looked WAY better with my red hair and pale complexion in light gold! So…that leaves me VERY confused over whether I can keep with my original bridesmaid dress vision.
Here is a photo of one of the bridesmaids dresses, for reference (bear in mind though, that they’re choosing their own dresses. I’m just asking that they all wear this color, and this skirt length):
And here is my precious (model photo–salon didn’t allow pictures):
Here is what further complicates things. The boys. I really didn’t love the look of black tuxes with the blue bridesmaids dresses, so I had originally envisioned the guys wearing grey linen suits (similar to this photo, except with ties and bouts that match the bridesmaids dresses and bouquets of course! And no–there won’t be ANY yellow. Pale gold, perhaps, but no yellow), like so:
We also have 3 girls on his side (the grooms sisters and best friend), so they would be wearing matching grey Alfred Sung dresses (again, they’re choosing their own dresses. I’m just asking that they all wear this color, and this skirt length):
What do you think? Does this work? Or will I need to change either a) the bridesmaid dress colors, or b) the groomsmen/groomswomen suit/dress colors? Also, if anything needs to change, please give alternate suggestions!
Thanks in advance, ladies! I really appreciate the feedback.
