Your girls picking their own Bridesmaid Dresses!

I'm baaaccckkk!!!

Sorry for being MIA for a couple weeks, but I'm back to stay.

WOW - planning a wedding in 4 months has definately been some work!

Not bad but busy:)

Lets get on today's post - Bridesmaid dresses!

Did you know that way, way back the bridesmaids wore the same color as the bride in hopes to confuse evil spirits that might want to harm the bride. That's what the veil was for too!
Interesting, huh?!
More and more designers creating white bridesmaid dresses.

I think that cohesive, clean look is downright gorgeous like this....

However, I love color too much to go that route!

I knew right away that I wanted my bridesmaids to have a say in what they were wearing and I knew that I did not want them all the same.

I didn't know if I would just give them a color family to stay in and they can pick what they want.

pick a specific color and fabric and then they pick the style

OR dresses with simliliar details...

I decided to pick out 10 different style dresses made with same fabric and was the same color.

I am having 6 bridesmaids stand up with me.

I was trying to make sure there would be something for everyone.

I have one bridesmaid that is in her 50's ( soon to be sister-in-law)

I have one that will have had a baby 8 weeks before the wedding and

2 bridesmaids that are currently trying to get pregnant....
so, yes, varying styles were important!

It was very easy! I selected a designer and then picked from the collection,

These dresses are from the After Six collection. These pics are from

All these dresses come in the teal color just 2 of the dresses didn't have pics of it in that color. Also any of the dresses that have black, the black is going to be the teal color too.

What are you doing for bridesmaids dresses??



  1. I love the options you chose! Each of my bridesmaids will wear a strapless Alfred Angelo gown that happily flatters all seven of them.

  2. I haven't decided on my bridesmaid dresses yet but this post gives me a lot of inspiration. Love your black and teal finds. PS who knew re: evil spirits!
