My first and original Wedding Wednesday post was accidentally deleted (insert sad face here!), so I'm going to recreate it here in brief. The idea behind these posts is a tie in to my upcoming series of novels, which are set in the fictional town of Bliss Springs, where people flock to say "I do" because of the purported mystical properties of the water. Leah, the protagonist of the first novel, is a detail oriented, Type A wedding planner with a flourishing business and no time for love. Of course, you know what they say about the best laid plans...
The first Wedding Wednesday post centered around bridesmaids dresses and the current trend for having different dresses for each girl in your party. This can range from having the same dress in different colors, similar dresses in varying shades of the same color, or totally different dresses in different colors altogether. Brave brides like Molly Simms may also want to throw pattern into the mix. If you're liking the idea here is some inspiration:
If done right I think this look is great because it allows each girl to retain some sense of individuality, not to mention the ability to choose a dress that flatters their figure. Some tips that bordering-on-OCD Leah would likely give to her brides to ensure the different bridesmaid dresses look works:
1. Choose a color scheme first. Even if it means getting out the paint fan you'll need to pick a handful of colors that will work well together.
2. An easy way to work this trend is choose dresses in the same fabric and color and just let the bridesmaids pick styles that they love.
3. Keeping length the same--ie: all short or long dresses--also goes a long way to keeping the look cohesive.
In the original post I asked what everyone thought about this look and I received so many lovely comments that I'm just so sad got deleted. I really appreciate every single one!
