So my dress is very simple and understated. I want my bm to look great but feel comfortable and wear thier outfits again.
I am goin to go against the norm here and have decided that they are going to wear shorts!!!!
since our colours are looking like being navy, orange and ivory, im thinking going for navy silk, crepe backed satin shorts, an orange singlet of some sort, and the girls can choose a crochet lace over lay style top!
I know its different and not to everyones taste, but thats the point.
This is the closest thing that the final look will kinda look like for them, but with different colors of course 🙂
oh and of course teamed with banging bright orange pumps and necklace!
So my bee’s just for fun ill add a poll to see if youve thought of or want to put your bm’s in shorts instead of the traditional dress idea.

I’ve never thought of it, but props to you for doing what you want! It actually sounds pretty awesome, when I really think about it. Especially with crazy colored pumps 🙂
The shirt above is really pretty too.

Sooo cute! And possibly comfy too… I feel that my bridesmaids in particular would not be super pleased just because 3 out of 5 don’t really show their legs much. I know I’d be a little uncomfortable, unless I was allowed to wear tights/stockings underneath, but this applies equally to short dresses and skirts. Shorts are better than that, anyway!
All the little logistic things aside, the look is ADORABLE and I wholly encourage this. 😀 I wanna see those recaps!
(I couldn’t be bothered to choose anything for mine… I just went “uhhh find something purple.” I think one of them might be wearing a suit haha.)

@wifey2be: Please borrow my motto for this year: “It’s my party, I do what I want!” and tell the haters to stick it where the sun don’t shine! 🙂

@wifey2be: whats missing in your poll is: shorts can be very unflattering for anyone without slim and toned legs and I would not do that to my BM!!!! I have moderately nice legs (they get less toned as you go up!) and I would be extremely uncomfortable.

@mamadingdong: Yeah, I also have the concern that not everyone would look great in those shorts.
But if your BMs are happy with it, go for it! There’s no rule that your BMs need to wear dresses.

I think its cute if they will look good on all of your bridesmaids. Not everyone can pull them off.

I love it! I’d totally wear it 😀 (but you might want to check if all your bridesmaids are comfortable wearing shorts)
Do you mind me asking where the top is from?
