to bridesmaids wearing what they want

I decided a long time ago (read: before we were engaged) that my bridesmaids would pick their own dress... one that flattered them and that they would wear again. I chose green. Any green. Lime, apple, kelly emerald. I don't much care, as long as my maid-sies are happy. I've had my moments of wanting to take their freedom away for sure, but all the dresses I liked were in the $400 range and I just couldn't do that to them. And yet everyone keeps telling me that having 9 different dresses in the bridal party will look weird. But it won't, I tell people. It won't!


How cute? Say no to symmetry! Life is not symmetric.

Top,Snippet & Ink. Second, Modern Day Design, (which looks to be a beautiful option for a Santa Barbara Florist.) Third, Vanessa Massoud... and the wedding of one of my dearest friends Laura, a few months ago in Georgia. (That's me on the far right.) Vanessa is finishing up her work on the rest of the pics and I'm going to post Laura's wedding here soon.

I love these- especially the first one. It looks great and they still look 'unified'!

I love the look! I've had this picture saved in my inspiration folder since I started planning:

YES! It's always the best in my opinion. Always looks best for photos because everyone feels more confident and comfortable!

you are SO right! people aren't uniform and bridesmaids don't have to be either. :)

I think it is a dazzling idea. It totally works! Go for it!
