bluebee19 :  Thank you! When I told the girls I was thinking champagne, a couple of them were concerned about looking washed out. So we looked at a number of other colour options. But at the end of the day, I really wanted the champagne and was convinced they would look nice in the colour. So I put my foot down and said I wanted long champagne dresses. They picked out the style, and they looked smashing!

I loved my bouquet too 🙂 And theirs as well!

Maybe this is just me.. and maybe I’m vain… maybe I want my friend’s photos to look good.. but if I was put in a washed out color I would have gotten a spray tan just to stand out a bit. I’ve done it in the past for a boost of color (as a freckly red head).

I looked for dresses that echoed the style of my dress a little bit. This is what I ended up with:

 

I think this Chi Chi dress would look awesome for your wedding, and comes in straight and plus sizes (if you need that): http://www.chichiclothing.com/products/Chi-Chi-Lottie-Dress.html. If you’re set on long dresses, they have a few similar ones too, and they’re all at great prices.

My dress was grey and theirs were a darker, purple Y grey.

I was never concerned about the dresses matching but I think they accidentally sort of did!
