So my friends and I have already done the bridesmaid dress thing several times, so I thought for my wedding the girls could choose their own outfits–especially since my wedding is a bit more casual than most bridesmaid dresses seem and since we will all be outside in October so they need something they can layer up. I also don’t really have a distinct color scheme (how could I ever narrow it down! I want greens, and purples, and berries, oranges, and twilight shades, and yellows and browns and golds) so I guess I really pushed ’em out naked onto the quad. Here are a few of the suggestion pictures I sent them:
Sooooooo what happens when you tell your bridesmaids that they can get any outfit they want in pretty much any color and then turn your back for a second while all shopping at JCrew????
THEY ALL CHOOSE THE SAME DRESS!!!! Seriously, it was like a whole Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants thing–this dress looked AMAZING on each and every one of them!
THANK YOU, ZOOEY DESCHANEL, FOR COTTON DRESSES!!!
YUP it is cotton and it has pockets! BONUS and BONUS! Three of them choose to get it in Spiced Wine and two in Cypress–geez that was easy! I think their plan is to all have matching tights, but otherwise to mix and match sweaters, jackets, belts, jewelry, etc. Secretly (but not that secretly I guess since I’m posting it here) I hope at least one of them wears a fancy hat 🙂
