This week on Tuesday’s Bridal Fashion we are looking at kitting out our lovely bridesmaids and flower girls.
Bridesmaid shopping was a really fun part of planning my day! It’s a great excuse (like we need one!) to get the girls together and really make a day of it.
Beware though, you may go out with a colour in mind and come home with some quite different – I had seen some lovely dusty pink colour dresses which I was taking my bridesmaids to try on but when we got there I fell in love with the brighter fuchsia colour (not too sure what the girls thought lol) – it was a drastic change but one I’m glad I made as they looked fab! Has this happened to anyone else?
Sometimes though, especially these days with everyone working long hours and people having so much on, it can be quite difficult to arrange a time and date suitable enough for everyone to come together so sometimes you just have to resort to good old internet shopping to help you out!
One of my favourite online stores is Very and I seen recently that they now do wedding dresses (which I am featuring in a couple of weeks!) and bridesmaid dresses too. These are delivered straight to your door and you have got 21 days to return these if they are not suitable. They have got some great styles – here are my top picks in my favourite colour…..
♥ 1. One Shoulder Maxi Length Bridesmaid Dress
♥ 2. Corsage Skirt Bridesmaid Dress
♥ 3. Rosalind Dress
♥ 4. Florence Bridesmaid Dress
♥ 5. Ladybird Girls Bridesmaid Dress
♥ 6. Freespirit Waterfall Bridesmaid Dress
Now, I’m not too sure you would call these a trend but I have added them to this section as I think they SHOULD be a trend!
On looking at one of my favourite wedding inspiration blogs – Wedding Chicks – I came across this post which talks about how a bride named Bethany asked her friends to be her bridesmaids. I am one of those brides guilty of plying my girls with drinks and then springing it on them that they were going to get dolled up in pretty dresses for the day (that have been chosen by moi – eek!) while making sure I was kept calm (which is a big job beleive me lol!). In hindsight though, and having seen these lovely boxes, I do wish that maybe I had put a little more though into it and came up with something similar to….
Full details on how Bethany made these can be found here.
Could you imagine the picture on your bridesmaids faces if they received one of these from the postman! How did you ask your friends/relatives to be your bridesmaids?
