Some Bridesmaid dress ideas. What do you girls think? What will be flattering on you?

update: This one doesn’t actually come in Laguna blue despite the website’s claims to the contrary. Bastards.

Update: Pay no attention to this one. Decided it’s definitely too flashdance. Plus Holly says it will be too hot for a dress that long.

_5741174I think this one’s GORGEOUS but a bit pricier so I don’t know- girls?

_5588007This one matches the suit lining, I think, but…stretch satin? Is this flattering? Details here.

Update: Briana likes the stretch satin…But I’m worried about anything that stretchy that you don’t get to try on in the store…

_5796942This one’s a different look, but oh my gosh does it look comfortable. And forgiving. Take a closer look at the front knot detailing- its kinda cool.
Details here.

Update: And this one, I just apologize for. Apparently I was having a fat moment. NO need to inflict it on you.


Thank goodness Holly, my matron of honor, is all crafty and stuff.  She’s going to dive into making “fascinators” for the girls of the wedding to wear (and possibly my bridesman, Wil, if he agrees.)

What’s a fascinator?  Its smaller than a hat but bigger than a headband. Its kinda ’30s, and if you add a little birdcage veil (which she plans to do) it is both elegant and a wee bit naughty.

Here’s some she found for inspiration. I really like this one for the bridesmaids, though I wish it had a veil.


And I like the veil on this one but the little ribbon rosettes are a little fussy, to my taste:


Mine would be more like this:


or this:


only with a big white peony instead of roses and maybe some of those wispy peacock tail feathers that have the iridescent colors but no eye…

I’m kinda hoping we can get out to the wedding site this weekend and see if they have some peacock feathers lying around that we can pick up for raw material (they did last time).
