When I was planning
my our wedding, I had a couple of routes that I was thinking of going with my bridesmaids.
First of all, I had 6. 6 Bridesmaids, 6 Groomsmen and us, making our wedding party quite large at 14 people. I knew that I wanted everyone to coordinate, but I didn’t want it to be too match-matchy.
I used my Pinterest Wedding Inspiration board to hoard a bunch of ideas
And then we had these – so different from the soft pink
I loved the idea of all the girls wearing a soft pink colour, and everyone wearing different dresses, like they all went out a bought a dress that they loved and felt amazing in. But that was a little hard to coordinate – having six bridesmaids, all wanting to please me, we instead opted to go shopping as a group. I really loved the White by Vera Wang line at Davids Bridal, especially since they had a lovely soft pink colour in their collection for 2013, and there were a lot of styles so they wouldn’t have to all wear the same dress. BUT when we went there, my girls loved two dresses specifically, and they ended up in 3 in one style and 3 in another. Oh. And in black. The dresses that they loved didn’t come in the pink. I panicked a little bit and my bestie talked me off the ledge. So we decided to go with black.
For the shoes, I told them I just want them to be pink. It doesn’t matter what shade, what style. Just pink. And look how lovely they were:
