I did find one shade of aqua that i think would be nice. It's a color that they carry with the Simple Silhouettes line. Those dresses are great...very modern for bridesmaid dresses, and I honestly think that some of them can be worn again, which is really most important to me for my maids. I know everyone always says that "oh, don't you think these could be worn again?" and they never really can. I mean come on...chiffon just SCREAMS bridesmaid. So i've been trying to look in nontraditional places for bridesmaid dresses - Nordstrom, Macy's, Dillards, JCrew, Anthropologie, etc. I've found some pretty good contenders...but none in that perfect shade of aqua. Although, i have found several options in a nice dark purple - kind of a royal or an aubergine purple. Apparently it's going to be hot color this fall. But i'm having a spring wedding...hmmm....oh well i guess! What do you guys think? Purple/Pale Aqua Blue/and B/W Damask...does that work for spring?!? I mean it is an evening wedding....
Also - i LOVE this Nicole Miller dress....but it's a bit on the pricey side
(okay, maybe a little more than a bit). But I would without a doubt wear this dress again!
Here's the Aqua colored Simple Silhouettes dress I was talking about...
i'd probably pick a different style, but i do love the color. And I'd like this one with a black "belt" instead of the aqua that is on this one.
Here's another purple option:
I think i'd actually like to see different styles/shapes in the bridesmaid dresses. I think it's a softer look with all the maids are wearing the same color/length but different styles. I sometimes feel like everyone wearing the same dress looks a bit like a bridal army. know what i mean?!? Plus, with different styles, everyone is able to get the style that looks best on them. I mean, I love strapless dresses but I KNOW that not everyone does.
So...what do you guys think?!?
