One dress, over 15 ways to wrap! It’s never easy to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses, and Ariane from twobirds Bridesmaid felt exactly the same way. Seeking out a better alternative to spending money on bridesmaid dresses that stayed in the closet, in planning her own wedding founder Ariane wanted to create a versatile solution for her best friends. Her Australian partner Vanessa echoes the sentiment, and knew that the Australian market was going to love the concept, and hence, teamed up with the New Yorker to bring us twobirds. Ariane says she “worked with a pattern maker, got some fabric, and was inspired by the Norma Kamali infinity dress. The positive response I got from my wedding inspired me to quit… Read More →
Pinterest certainly helps you find some beautiful content sometimes… and I recently came across this beautiful gaggle of women and the most perfectly stunning barn wedding from last year via Wedding Chicks. Does 4 women constitute a “gaggle”? I’m sticking to it… I loved the overall styling of this wedding once I saw the feature! But what really drew me in was the beautiful simplicity of the bride and her ‘maids look. It’s such a fresh spin on vintage, and captured so wonderfully via Debra Eby, you felt a connection as you move through these photographs. Beautifully ensembled neutral bridesmaid dresses! Bridesmaid dresses were via Etsy, designer River of Romansk. Full wedding feature at Wedding Chicks. Featured photo courtesy of… Read More →
What a gorgeous group of ladies! I particularly love this mismatched ensemble that keep in theme with the bride’s ivory. The unique champagne theme dresses are perfectly matched with their own custom bouquet – fabulous! I just love the individuality of each dress, teamed with it’s own accessories and flowers, it brings such a uniqueness to the group but manages to thread them all together. This is certainly one the most beautiful bridal parties I’ve seen with such attention to detail. For a feature of the full wedding, check out Kristen Gardner’s blog. Kristen certainly captured Kathleen & Jon’s day impeccably, what a way to reflect on your wedding!
I love the idea of doing a pattern for a bridesmaid dress, and while I was watching the latest episodes of Revenge tonight, Charlotte’s dress popped out at me! I must say, the first three episodes of Revenge have certainly been showcasing some beautiful dresses! Looking forward to many more inspirational dresses! Image courtesy of Celebrity Style Guide This dress is by Dolce & Gabbana and such a gorgeous, summery chiffon dress. I think this would be a perfect addition to a summer wedding party. Would you do floral for your bridesmaids?
I came across this wedding after finding this photo on Pinterest and falling in love with the pink and white striped bridesmaid outfits! I loved that they weren’t actually dresses but done beautifully with the golden neutral tshirt style to complete the outfit and match the bride. After trying to find the photographer of this image to see more photos of the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses, I came across their story. Emi & Chase have a dedicated site that tells the stories of their lives together, including their beautiful wedding photos! But I’m here to focus on the bridesmaid dresses, because I was instantly drawn to how different these ensembles were and loved the touch of pink! Highly recommend checking out… Read More →
I hadn’t thought to do another post on mismatched bridesmaid dresses, as you all know by now how much of a fan I am of them! But a friend in LA sent me this a few days ago, which was featured on her local tanning specialist, Sunkissed by Jenni website. These ladies look absolutely stunning, and I think are such a true representation of a perfectly ‘mismatched’ bridesmaids for a black tie wedding. They are suitably formal, while still looking like they are part of the same bridal party. Short and sweet, and sorry for blabbing on so much about mismatched bridal dresses. I am clearly keen to do this in my own wedding! What do you think of these… Read More →
I stumbled upon Shannen Norman‘s website via Style Me Pretty‘s wedding feature of Jenny & Chad. These mismatched bridesmaid dresses are definitely among my favourite that I’ve seen. The vintage style of these ladies coupled with a range of cool to summer colours really steals the show. Love it! What do you think? Highly recommend checking out Shannen Norman‘s photography, the photographs she captures are truly stunning! I’m going to feature her this week on Inspire Me Wednesday so stay tuned!
As far as a bridal party goes, these guys surely take the cake. Stunning dress, gorgeous mismatched bridesmaid dresses and handsome fellas! I really adore the style of the bride’s dress, classic and timeless. Photograph via Style Me Pretty // Photography by Elizabeth Messina
The more I see photos of bridal parties with mismatched dresses, the more I love it! This one from Christian Oth Studio NY is a perfect example of picking a colour scheme, and having your bridesmaids in completely different dresses, and having it work! They all look part of the same bridal party, but each with their own sense of style and wear the type of dress that is suited to the individual. Plus, I absolutely love that they have different brightly coloured shoes on!
I’ve never really considered having bridesmaid dresses that were mismatched, but seeing a few wonderful combinations of late, I’m beginning to change my mind! This gorgeous combination photographed by Jill Thomas Photography works beautifully with the flowers and complements the girls individual style. Originally featured in Style Unveiled. This is the other one that has really caught my eye. Neutrals has always been a bit out for me, being fair skinned and blonde. That’s not to say my bridesmaids couldn’t wear it though! These neutrals really stand out for me, and the fact they are mismatched seem to work even better. I found this via Belle the Magazine. Does anyone know who shot this wedding or the original source? I… Read More →
