Deciding on bridesmaid dresses was one of the most difficult decisions of my wedding planning so far. I was open to all designs, concepts and colors. I wanted the girls to feel confident, pretty and comfortable. Since I have four bridesmaids, I was even up for the idea of them wearing all different styles and colors. However, we all decided to wear the same color, which came down to champagne versus a pale blush. We then started searching for all dresses within these two colors through sites like shopstyle.com, J.Crew, Nordstrom’s…you name it! If you can remember back to my first post, I used this photo as an inspiration for my bridesmaids. I loved the pale color and style. It’s classic but has a trendy appeal to it (not to mention, super flattering!)
I found this dress at J.Crew and loved it, but it was final sale (amazing price) but no return policy. Since the girls couldn’t try it on, I had some concerns.
I also wanted some structure to the dress to make it more comfortable and flattering. This champagne color was another option besides pink, but the fabric was not as elegant as I hoped for.
Finally, I found this dress by Alfred Sung and found it at Ellynne Bridal
(where I also bought my dress). One of my bridesmaids was in town from New York City and was able to try it on. It looked great and I loved the structure of the dress. It’s SO flattering! We decided against champagne since it was too close to ivory, and I think “pearl pink” is perfect. Next decision? Shoes!
I want each bridesmaid to really show their own style since we decided on a uniform look. Also, I wanted their opinion on what they would wear again, style, etc. Since they are wearing the same dress but with different shoes, they needed a “look” to follow. Everyone agreed a nude pump is not only classic, but they can definitely wear them over and over again. I loved these styles they chose!
I am so glad the dresses are ordered and the girls are happy! I cannot wait to see them once they come in!
