Opinion: Varying Bridesmaids Dresses

27 May

I’ve seen bridal parties with varying bridesmaids dresses, meaning the bridesmaids all wear a different dress- either unique styles in the same shade/fabric

or completely different dresses in the same color

or completely different dresses that somehow all go.

What do you think of this option? Personally, I am a perfectionist and would want to be in the same dress as the other girls to be unified (perhaps I should say, anal, not a a perfectionist, haha). Then again, having the choice to pick my dress is nice; one of my brides let us choose our own dress in the same color & designer.

Do you appreciate having the option to pick your own dress, or do you think the bride should just do what she wants to do?

And the bridesmaid wore white?

3 May

Yesterday’s post on Pippa Middleton’s ivory maid of honor dress got me searching for real weddings where not just the bride wore white.

A quick visit to Style Me Pretty, and I found 3 weddings where the bridal party is wearing ivory/white dresses.

In one sense, I think it looks beautiful and cohesive, and as seen in the first photo, a bright bouquet really pops. In the other sense, I think it takes away from the bride being the only one in cream/white/ivory.

What do you think of this possible trend? Does it take away from the “special-ness” of only the bride wearing white?
