The following is a great post from the Wedding Chicks Blog on a cute way to ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding.
At Wedding Chicks, we’re all about celebrating every aspect of your wedding including asking your bridesmaids to be part of your wedding party. Why not make a day out of the event? Get dressed up, eat a few sweets and enjoy your besties. To inspire this incredibly special day, Pink and Honey came up with this inspirational shoot to showcase sweet moments shared by bridesmaids as they celebrate love and friendship.
From Pink and Honey
Combining a romantic color palette of soft mint, blush pink, burnt gold and cream, we hope to inspire styling bridesmaids in an individual yet cohesive way. In selecting very different color and style dresses, each girl stood out as her own unique self. To ensure continuity, we were careful to choose similar, flowy fabrics, as well as similar hem lengths. Most importantly was that the color combinations were complementary.
We picked dainty gold jewelry for each bridesmaid and styled their hair in carefree curls to help tie the look together. By keeping the hair, makeup and accessories consistent, the dress variances worked together effortlessly. Top secret: Each of the bridesmaid’s dresses cost less than $35.00 at Forever 21!
So whether it be a moment to steal a bite of cake or to chase a beautiful butterfly, a bride is always thrilled to see her best gals enjoy the special day as much as she will.
Floral design is another key element that can draw bridal party style together beautifully. Our bridesmaids carried matching bouquets using variations of the same flowers to create a visually calming moment against their unique dresses.
