i picked out the bridesmaid dresses from lulakate with the girls and tried to chose a color that would look nice on everyone and go along with our theme. then the girls went to town picking their own design (lula kate has tons of different designs to choose from, all in the same color that you may want), so everyone will have one that looks good on them and that they actually like. i didn't want them wearing something they would hate, or feel fugly in, especially at how expensive these things can get.
but every day i hop on my google reader and look at the latest pics from other people's weddings and see all the other ideas out there, and just the other day i came across this:
sorry half the photos got cut in half, but you can just click the image to see in full. but what i'm trying to show you is the bridesmaid dresses anyways, so you don't really even need to expand. can you believe how gorgeous those things are? lace halter top with a gorgeous shantung (i think) bottom. holy. crap. they are so pretty!!! (from watters)
i still love the dresses we ended up choosing (see the gems below), and i hope my ladies do too, but it's so hard not to think twice sometimes when all these other pretty images keep popping up :)
