I don’t have pics of my girls back yet, but they wore the jcrew silk chiffon in graphite and its a lovely color.  Very flattering, not too dark, and not too light.  They all loved it!

Mine aren’t from Jcrew, but they’re a graphitey color: Platinum. From Priscilla of Boston Vineyard collection.

Right now I’m thinking the girls will carry dark pink/light pink flowers tied with a navy blue ribbon. Our invitations will probably be those colors too and most of the flowers will be in the pink family. I have yet to pick invitations/paper and meet with the florist though, so that could all change! But anything goes with graphite/platinum, we have it made.

I told my girls to choose whichever dress in the silk chiffon they liked best.  So, I’ll have two wearing the Juliet dress (one in graphite and my Maid/Matron of Honor in deep rose), two wearing the Sophia dress, and one in the twist-tank dress. 

Just a word of caution if you have any bustier girls – the sophia dress looks fairly modest but didn’t offer much coverage.  The strappless (Juliet) was universally flattering.  And the twist-tank, while lovely, worked best on my super tall Bridesmaid or Best Man with a teeny little waist (though she’s a size 8 her figure worked best with this dress).  All in all I’m really glad they all chose different styles, I love a mismatched look!

My Maid/Matron of Honor is in deep rose which is perfect as my colors are grey and deep pink (fuschia).  I’m having them carry deep pink flowers and they’re wearing fuschia shoes (except my Maid/Matron of Honor who is wearing silver shoes).

I’m also going with the J.Crew graphite dresses in mixed styles. My question is: What jewelry are you picking for your bridesmaids?  I was thinking about chunky necklaces on some, earrings on others.  Something that is bold enough to see as they walk down the aisle.

Would love to hear what jewelry your bridesmaids are wearing!

I don’t wear much jewelry, and i’m giving them other things for their bridesmaids gifts, so I didn’t choose what they’re wearing.  I pretty much just asked them not to layer necklaces, and not to wear earrings that looked like mine (dangly pear-shaped fake diamond ones).  One of my maids works at Tiffany’s so she’ll probably do something fairly bold, but the rest of them are leaning towards simple pearls/chokers.

My bridesmaids are going to wear any style of the silk chiffon dresses in graphite.  They’re going to wear fuschia shoes – any style, material, etc. as long as they’re fuschia.

As for jewelry, I am going to let them wear whatever they want.  I would love for them to wear something fun, but their different tastes in jewelry are so different that I’d prefer to let them wear something they like and are comfortable with.

LadyGoodman – if you’ve found cute fuschia shoes I’d love to see them!  I’ve found some gorgeous Stuart Weitzman’s and other pricey ones, but finding something in the $60-$100 range has been hard!
