Okay, ladies, here's the rundown:
At my wedding, this is what I will be wearing: http://watters.com/product.php?coll=brides&showid=717
I'm shopping for accessories (aka scouring exclusively.in) that will let me mix in some Indian touches, like shoes, earrings and possibly bangles. I am also wearing mehndi.
Originally I thought of putting my BMs in lehengas. My mom is very pro-lehenga, I think FI's mom likes the idea, and FI thinks it will look really strange with what I'm wearing.
What do you think - these are the options I have:
1) Modern lehengas, probably fishtail, like this: http://www.homeindia.com/bridesmaid-and-family/long-choli-lehenga/green-glam-lehenga-choli-p-ghmfl1044.html
2) Kurta dresses, less the leggings, like this: http://www.kaneesha.com/store.cfm?pid=8120
3) Custom dresses made of Indian fabrics w/a Western shape
4) Western-style bridesmaid dresses, like these: http://www.jcrew.com/wedding/Wedding_Bridesmaid/dresses/silkchiffon/PRDOVR~29287/29287.jsp
If it makes any difference, neither my BMs nor I are South Asian.
Help me, I'm at a loss here and we're going to the dress shop in early Nov., so I need my BMs' measurements if we're going to order from India ...
