Genius.

I've been having a very difficult time finding a fantastic bridesmaid dress for all the girls. Call me crazy for jumping into this detail so early, but hey, I've been a bridesmaid a handful of times and gosh darnit the bridesmaids dresses are just as big of a deal as the bride's!

I'm starting to wonder if this genius idea should be the way to go...


...look how awesome it turned out!


I mean, how genius is this bride? The girls get to wear whatever style and color they want, as long as it corresponded well with the paint swatch she gave the girls.

I kind of love it. We'll see, plenty of time..plenty of time...

My fellow Chicagoans, stay safe out there!! Can you believe we had the third worst blizzard in Chicago's history?!

My girls wore J. Crew bridesmaid dresses - I let them pick their own in brown and it turned out great. I also love the different shades of the same hue like you have here - so gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you decide!

This is a cute idea.

Ooh a friend of mine showed me that pic a few months ago. I LOVED this idea - I say do it!

I love this idea and toyed with a bit for my wedding. I would have been ok with every dress except for the one on the end in what looks like an olive green swim coverup. Her shoes also did not fit the bride's specification of purple "pumps", and that settle for me the fact that I was too type A to allow that much freedom. but if you can make it work, I think it could be super cool!

I think it's a fun idea - why not let the bridesmaid's personalities and style show in their dress choice? Looking forward to seeing what you decide to go with!
