- Wedding: August 2010
So I’m at the 6-month mark and I’m really wanting to finalize the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress decisions as soon as I can. For some reason I’m being horribly indecisive about this. I’m having 4 bridesmaids (no MOH) and only one of them really lives close to me, so she’s the one who went shopping with me and tried stuff on. The other 3 have been getting lots of dress pictures via email. 🙂
At this point, I’m just feeling like I need some outside opinions from people who aren’t in my wedding! So here are the options we’ve narrowed it down to.
Bridesmaid or Best Man tried this dress on (Alfred Angelo 7016s) and we both felt that it was very flattering, very cute, and fits the “feel” of my outdoor-summer-tent-wedding very nicely. My colors are robin’s egg blue and some yet-to-be-determined shade of green. I was originally only considering this dress in robin’s egg blue, then I discovered the light green “lettuce” color and decided that I like that one too.
SO now I’m wondering how it might look to do 2 BMs in blue and 2 in lettuce. They are very complementary colors… the actual swatches are a little different than they look here (the blue is more subdued in person). But when I first suggested this to my mom she acted like that was kind of a weird idea. 🙂 So I don’t know!
Then we have my other love… the J. Crew “Sophia” dress in Dusty Shale. I ordered one of these dresses online to see what it looked like in person, and it’s very pretty. However, the color is definitely much darker and much more of an aqua/green than it looks here. The main thing I prefer about this dress is that it looks like something you could wear again and again. One of my other BMs made that comment too. But the color is not exactly what I wanted, and I’m not sure the style will be as flattering on everyone as the Alfred Angelo one.
siiiigh… Sorry this is so crazy long. 🙂 But I will truly, truly appreciate any thoughts or opinions. Oh and here is a pic of my dress… one thing I like about the Alfred Angelo Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is that I feel that it kind of “goes with” the look of my dress a little better than the J. Crew one. hmmm…
