AW your Bridesmaid's dresses!

I went back and forth on mine SO many times. From this cornflower blue color, to navy, then to cornflower WITH navy. In hindsight, I wish I'd let the girls pick their dresses, but no one complained. Funny story, I told them to pick their own shoes out in silver. Then changed my mind to navy. All three picked the EXACT same shoes, but one missed the 'navy' memo, so one was silver and two were navy. We figured it out on the way to the rehearsal and had a good laugh about it.

    I can't find a picture of mine in our actual color but here's the dress! It's Jordan 534. The girls will be wearing it in charcoal...not purple. I went back and forth a lot on colors too. I was originally thinking burnt orange but changed my mind at the last minute (probably for the best).image

    I've been talking about BM's dresses to my sister all morning, so perfect thread! I've been thinking about doing midnight blue bridesmaid's dresses such as this , and do tablecloths in the same color, and then do lots of pale colors (blush pink, sage green, ivory) for flower/decor.

    @hummingbird125 I like how you can alter the neckline of the dress you linked to! Very cute!

    @TwoDimes thanks! I had a really hard time deciding what I wanted to do with the dresses since I couldn't get all the same style and color, but I'm glad I did same style/different color.

    I don't know what my MOH's dress will look like yet - I told her to get anything black and knee-length. I hope she's got something hanging in her closet, and if not, she's got months to turn soemthing up. Love everyone's BMs' dresses!

    All I've told my MOH is that I'm pretty open. 
    My preferences - Color:  Grey, Brown, Yellow, Orange, or Purple
    Knee-Length

    If MOH wants a long dress, she can have it and other colors might be ok too.  I'm trying to avoid anything TOO dark because it will be Florida and warm/hot.

    My BMs wore black dresses. I didn't care what material or style the dress was. I suggested black, silver, or nude shoes and they all went with black. They also all wanted short which didn't matter much to me at the time, but looking back I kind of wish I had asked them to go with long.

  • I'd like to play, but I have no wedding party.  Here's my mom's dress.  FMIL hasn't picked one yet.  My mom loves hers.  It kind of goes with my dress b/c it has lace with some beadwork within the lace parts.  It's navy, not black.

    @swazzle, why do you want long in retrospect?

    @swazzle, why do you want long in retrospect?
    I don't have a real reason, honestly. I think I just see long more often than short and I just love the look of it. 



  • Oh, we're doing MOB and MOG, too, yay!

    My mom and DH's mom both chose the same color. They were so funny about not wanting to 'one-up' each other and both asked me REPEATEDLY if I cared they were wearing the same color. I actually kind of loved it, because all of our family pictures look so put together (my sis and BIL were in the wedding party, and my SFIL also wore the same tux as the wedding party).

    The pic with me is my mom. The pic on her own is my MIL.

    Here's my mama in her dress (the first is one of my favorite pictures from the whole day when she was walking me down the aisle and the 2nd is a better shot of her dress when my parents were announced at the reception):

  • My Mom and the MILs (stepmom and mom) didn't coordinate with each other. I thought they all looked stunning though. My MIL wore Navy which matched basically the entire wedding lol and my mom wore a tan colored (peuter, can't spell) dress. I absolutely loved it! Here is a picture of her dress:

    Can I play? I am a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding next year, and here are the dresses we have to pick from. But I helped her to pick them out :). I think I want to go with the first one, depending on how it looks on me.

    I had a few shades of blush.  I told the girls a shade of blush and short.  I didn't care what the style was as long as it fit their figure well, how much it cost or the fabric it was made from.  They all wore different nude shoes.  I loved how they all came out together!

  • @GoldenPenguin and @Swazzle:

    I'm passing this down to you.  My MOH jokingly sent this to me in a text when I was talking about wedding crap.  It went on for 10 months while planning and she even got me a tee shirt for Christmas!  I was so NOT a bridezilla and therefore the silly cartoon t-rex was even funnier.
