Originally I was all about gold . Not just any gold though I wanted a gold dress that was vintage looking. I told each of the bridesmaids they could pick any dress they wanted just had to be this vintage gold color. Here was my inspiration. Ms. Cameron Diaz:
Or maybe something like this dress...
Well we looked for the first couple of months and found it was extremely hard to find a dress for everyone that was
A. Vintage Gold
B. In their size
and C. Not really expensive.
I was given many suggestions...
-Change the color
-Make them wear the same dress
-Find a gold color at a bridal store and let them pick their dress in any style.
All great ideas, but not what I had in mind. I really wanted something different for my wedding. Not the typical bridesmaid dresses. So I kept looking. We went from gold to a more tannish color.
Inspiration : from Green Wedding Shoes
How gorgeous is that?
We found many dresses in that category... but the biggest problem was that the cream colors were getting to be too close to the color of my dress and at the time I was worried about how that would look. I wasn't worried about sticking out just wanted the colors to pop more. Sooo everyday, my best friend and I would gchat back and forth with links to dresses that we found online. ALL DAY!
We started coming across taupe colors. We actually found the cutest dress for $88 dollars from Ann Taylor, but we waited a couple of days and all the sizes were gone! I was so upset! I thought finnally it was over! But, it was not.
My favorite store - Anthropologie had some really cute dresses, but the one that I really like didn't come in any color close to the ones that I liked. It was black and had ruffles. I thought it would have been perfect for the wedding if only it came in Taupe. Taupe had become my new favorite obsession.
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!
Not a week later Anthro added a taupe color for that dress. It was divine, meant to be, heaven-sent.
We ordered them all within the next couple of days. I am so in love with this dress!!
I am doing very neutral colors for the wedding with accents of green and Lavendar so I think that the colors off the bouquet will really stand out with the dresses. I can't wait to see how it turns out!!
