My girls

There’s no doubt a bride’s dress will be the most talked about piece of clothing at a wedding – I also think it’s one of the most anticipated things for any female wedding guest. But when planning a wedding, for me, the bridesmaids’ dresses were more important. After deciding on my girls’ dresses, everything else in terms of colors, decor, flowers and wardrobe really fell into place.

I knew I wanted their dresses to be either blush or champagne – And when they tried on Jenny Yoo’s Hudson in Metallic Swirl Lace, I knew we found the winner. The fabric is the perfect combination of soft blush with a silver thread throughout the delicate lace which gives it a little shimmer. Metallic accents are always a winner in my book.

From there, I knew the flowers had to be soft – all whites and light pinks with soft dusty miller as greenery – no pops of bright color. These dresses stand out on their own. The rest of the decor was all light grey with touches of soft pink. (More on those details to come!)

So if you’re having trouble visualizing just how your wedding is going to look, decide on the bridesmaid’s dress – or hold up different ideas next to the dress. And make sure to ask for a fabric swatch of the dress if you can. It’s always a good idea to bring that with you – whether you’re meeting with the florist or picking out your groom’s tie!
