The Blue Bridesmaids

When it came time to decide who to ask to be in our wedding, I knew immediately who I wanted to be in the bridal party. I'll have one maid of honor and three bridesmaids. I sought out clever, cute ways to ask them and went with custom made embellished cards that came in their own personal boxes. I ordered them and they took two weeks to get to me. Then with the crazy winter weather that struck the east coast and Midwest they all just recently received the cards.

 
 
I chose our wedding colors for the cardstock to give them an idea of the theme.

Thankfully they all accepted so I officially have my bridal party. The next thing on my to-do list was to search out a dress. Since the four of them live in four different states, I needed to go with a vendor that would be easily accessible in all of their states. I've heard some really good things about David's Bridal so I started looking on their website. I talked to one of my bridesmaid's because she bought her wedding dress from them and she had a great experience. I knew when I started looking on their site that I would be able to find a dress that would look good and fit with all of the girls body types. Then I found this dress...
 
It's perfect! The dress photographs well, it's floor length and fits in perfectly with our wedding style. It's a Vera Wang dress but it's not going to break the bank. That was one thing I was concerned about when looking for a gown. I didn't want to ask people to pay a huge price for a bridesmaid dress that they may only wear once in their life. This dress is under $200.00 dollars. I started playing with colors online and found the perfect one...
 
The color is called Pool. I know that color can really be subjective on a computer screen so this past weekend, I went to David's Bridal and compared color swatches. Pool is officially it! I talked to them and this dress takes 4 months to come into the store once ordered. Then it takes them another 2-4 weeks for alterations. I immediately group texted my bridal party. Now the hunt is on for shoes and jewelry!
 
I'm very excited to be one step closer walking down the isle and having my bridal party ready! I'm thinking a silver shoe. Thoughts?

That dress is BEAUTIFUL! I love it! You could definitely go with a silver shoe or even gold. Black I think would be a bit harsh against that colour.

Do you find yourself excited planning your wedding? I know I loved planning mine and was sad when it was over.
