Bridesmaids Dresses: Trying To Be Easy Can Be So Hard

Posted by bridalbuds on Mar 29, 2011


Before I ever became engaged, I’d promised myself that I would be an EASY bride. No, not that kind of easy. Easy in the sense that I wouldn’t micromanage every teensy detail, I wouldn’t freak out over small things that didn’t matter. I would avoid at all costs having a bridezilla moment.

Part of that commitment to nonchalance was to let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses. The plan was to select a basic color palette and then leave them to their own devices to pick a dress that they loved and felt comfortable in. Everyone’s doing that nowadays anyway, right?

Well, easier said than done.

Thinking Outside the Shoe Box

Posted by Dogwood on Mar 05, 2010

In an effort to spice things up, I have decided to forgo the traditional white shoes and opt for something with a little pizazz. Although we will be married on the beach, its quite a different type of beach down in the Keys.  Due to the coral reefs that surround the islands, no beaches are actually natural made, but man made with tightly packed sand.  This gives me the opportunity to wear some fabulous heels, and give my rump a little lift!

Shoe Box

I have decided to stick with the colors of our wedding, Tiffany Blue/Turquoise and Coral in my quest for shoes.  This has been quite difficult as it is winter and most companies haven’t yet begun to display their spring lines which are always full of color.  I have had a little bit of luck, and thought I would turn it over to the BridalBud readers to help me with my decision.

Marigold & Grey

Posted by acursaro on Aug 10, 2009

I’ve been wanting to use grey in an inspiration board for a while now, but I just couldn’t decide which color to compliment it with.  There are so many choices – pale pink, lemon, fuschia – how does a girl decide?  However, when I saw these gorgeous escort cards on Martha Stewart Weddings I knew marigold was just the color to add!  Marigold and grey would be perfect for a late summer or an early fall wedding.  The yellow tones are so warm and inviting – I just love it!
