These are my bridesmaids, I had two (the perfect number in my opinion, haha!). The other lovely lady is my mom.
I had my girls in matching dresses & matching 4-inch heeled nude patent shoes. Their hair were done in elegant asymmetrical low chignons, similar but each slightly different. Similar makeup looks. They were supposed to have matching pearl drop cluster earrings, but soooooommeeeonnne forgot her jewelry on the way to the ceremony site (my Maid/Matron of Honor, haha). The DOC kindly offered her pearl stud earrings and a bracelet as a stand in. Their bouquets were a variation on my wedding flowers and smaller than my massive bouquet.
They looked fantastic. Like, OMG, seriously stunning super-model fantastic. I seriously felt dowdy compared to them on the wedding day.

My girls wore reversible dresses and tied them to compliment their body. Simple lovely.

My wedding is country & rustic. The girls all are picking out there own short ivory lace dresses and than they are wearing matching cardigans. Most of the girl chose to wear brown belts with their dresses. They will all wear their own cowgirl boots. I have purchased matching earrings and bracelets for them. All the girls’ hair will be down and flowy for the main part, some may have half up half down, one side pulled back, or bangs braided. I want my bridesmaids to feel and look amazing and I thought by allowing them to pick their own dress they would feel that way.
I cant get the photos to upload so here is a link to my inspiration

thanks! Its from David’s Bridal.
My bridesmaids all loved it! I even gave them the option to chose different dresses (as long as they were the same colour) and they all chose this one! It was flattering on all 🙂

Thank you! I am so excited to get things moving and show off the bridesmaid dresses and whatnot. I am going for a light pink/peachy/gold theme. Different from most weddings Ive seen!

My girls looked so cute! I was a little bummed that their dress color didn’t totally look like it did online (online looked more bright & summery, & in real life they were more dark and eggplant looking). First pics were their accessories, last pic is of them & us on the wedding day.

I don’t have any maids, just gentlemen (?), but they are going to look sharp. I’m ordering these vests for them from Korea.
Here’s Fiance modeling his in his work t-shirt and gym shorts
We haven’t decided on wether we’re going for long sleeves or short yet, but they will have black dress pants and shoes. Fiance will have a silver tie while each of the male attendants will have a tie with the same stripe pattern in one of the wedding colors: peach spring green, lavender, or chocolate brown.

I’m having a laidback, country wedding so I didn’t want anything too fussy.
I don’t have a good picture of the dress but here is one of my bridesmaids striking a pose. It’s a navy blue high low dress. They will wear a brown belt with it. They will wear their own heels for the ceremony and their own cowboy boots for the reception.
I will be purchasing pearls for them to wear with their dresses.
As for hair and makeup, I want them to look gorgeous but not too “glam” because it’s a laidback wedding.

This is my sister in her dress (Bill Levkoff in navy):
These are their shoes (I got these for around $5 at Payless!!):
I got them each different jewelry in a variety of (fake) pearls and pave crystal:
This is my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet inspiration:
For or their hair and make-up I told them they could do whatever they want (I’m having hair & make-up artists come to our rental house and they had the option of having those done with them or DIYing). I’d prefer something soft and flowy (I loathe hairspray. LOL) since our ceremony is on the beach. E.g.:
I’m hoping it all comes together on the day!!!!
