Time to Get Fancy

I saw the Marbella dress on Green Wedding Shoes and loooved it. The colors are quite close to my color palette idea. I am not quite sure if I am on board for bridesmaids wearing different colored dresses. I do like dresses in the same shades/color families. I certainly like the idea of the maid of honor wearing a different dress.

Every time I venture off into the world of bridesmaid dresses I always seem to find my way back to the Sophia dress. The silhouette is classic and flattering, and the price is not too outrageous {hey, if you wear it two other times after the wedding it was only $55…right? heh.}. They even have shoes to match the Marbella, which would be extremely cute for the bridesmaids, but cha-ching!!! I would not expect them to buy those.

Another dress that caught my eye {hello orange!} is the Printed Erica dress with an every-so-lovely Liberty of London print. The Juliet dress is also pretty, and I love the sweet cantaloupe color. As a side note, I do not think I actually own anything from J. Crew. Seriously. I get the catalog and pour through it, but never buy anything. Perhaps that will change with the wedding because they make it so easy! If my sister likes one of these patterned dresses enough, I will buy it. If she does not, then I will keep looking.

Which dress do you like the best?

Oh that’s so hard! Love your color palette by the way! Honestly, I like both. I know that doesn’t help. Here’s my idea:
What if the MOH wore the Marbella dress with the pretty pink flowers in that print and then the BMs wear either the cantaloupe solid colored strapless (or even better in the pink color from up top to bring out the pink in the MOH dress!) or they get a J.Crew dress in the pink, also strapless? Just an idea. I really like the idea of the MOH wearing a different dress too, especially a different color, and I think one girl in a print would be better than all them. Keeping all the BMs in one solid color will help keep things not as “busy”.

Did that make any sense? I hope I didn’t ramble! :o

Solid color for BMs — but you could do a cute pattern for a shower or rehearsal!

I’ve loved the Juliet dress for a couple years, ever since I was hunting for the perfect dress for my cousin’s wedding!
