I never thought selecting bridesmaid dresses would be the biggest decision I have had to make for our wedding. The reception venue, ceremony location and my wedding dress(es) were beyond easy to decide upon. Yet the dresses that the girls closest to me is a giant unknown.
I have four dear friends who will be standing with me on my big day. All four girls are beautiful and fit but shaped differently. While one would be stunning in a form fitting strapless gown, the other needs straps or we would be having a totally different kind of after party. Just saying....
So I made the decision to allow my girls to select their own dress. One that would accentuate their individuality and look best on their figure. Plus I cannot get accused of picking out ugly bridesmaid dresses.
At this time, I am certain of two things - the dresses will need to be the same shade (charcoal grey) and will not be an infinity dress. Since the wedding is in New Orleans, I am encouraging the girls not to have a long dress since it will get nasty during the second line parade.
What do you think about bridesmaids wearing different style dresses? I have always been a matchy-matchy girl so this is a big deal for me. After being in around 10 weddings, I know this will take a lot of stress off of my shoulders knowing each girl will be happy with their dress.
