Wedding Wednesday: Bridesmaid Dresses

So we’re going with gray dresses for the bridesmaids! There I said it. I finally made a decision. I’d been going back and forth with different blush tones and putting too much thought into it. I wasn’t completely sold on pinks or purples mainly because we’re not sure on the colors of our flowers until we actually get down to Mexico and see what they have. If we went with pink dresses and only had purple flowers available – then it would clash. I decided my best bet was to pick a neutral, but pretty color that any bouquet of flowers would compliment. Is that a totally weird way of picking my bridesmaid dress colors? It made sense to me… so gray dresses it is!

I am also one of those girls that jumped on the trend of miss-matched bridesmaid dresses. When I say jumped on that trend, I mean that I am absolutely in love with the idea. I love the idea that each girl will get to wear a dress that she feels the most comfortable and beautiful in. I’ve never been a fan of symmetry, or a perfectly matched assortment so miss-matched dresses seems like a great fit for our wedding. The last three photos below are some of favorites that I’ve seen floating around on the internet.

  1. Hooray for making decisions! I totally understand how that goes.I let my girls choose their own dresses too. It's perfect for everyone, they get to choose their look and price tag and you get to just sit back and chill and not stress over them. I loved it! I didn't even see most of their dresses till the day of and it went together so great! (I've got a big wedding recap post today happening on my blog, shameless plug here lol)

  2. LOVE the mis-matched look! That is what I wanted to do for our wedding but it ended up stressing me out WAY too much, so all three of my girls ended up getting the same dress from shop ruche. I like it because it is not \”bridesmaid\” like and they can wear it again! I can't wait to see how it all comes together! When are y'all getting married? New follower. 🙂
