Bridesmaids' Dresses

BM Kelly surprised me this past Saturday by being the first bridesmaid to go try on her dress. I didn't even know she was going, so I was very excited when I randomly received a text message picture of her in the dress!

If you recall, I was a little nervous about the dresses. I had only seen my chosen champagne shade on a small swatch, and I was nervous that in an entire dress, it might be super close to white. Well, I am very happy I went with my gut and original design inspiration, because they look GREAT:

 Dress is Alvina Valenta 9866, not yet altered.

Admittedly, the photo's color is a little off, but I think we can all tell this doesn't look white. I love how the light shade really allows you to see the detail in the neckline, and I love the fitted look. I can't wait to see the finished product when it's actually altered, and to see the color in person, not just a yellowed out iPhone shot. I'm thinking when we're all together, we'll look something like this:

We have similar color dresses, a similar junior bridesmaid dress, and very similar flowers planned. I love having this picture as a "preview" of my ideas. 

It's so excited to start seeing everything coming together!


  1. that dress is beautiful and your "Preview" photo is very pretty too

  2. So beautiful!! I really love the color scheme

    I couldn't find an email for you so I apologize leaving this here in the comments. I don't know if you have a videographer already but I'm spreading the word about a contest that Storymix Media will be having beginning next week in search of a Storymix Blogger and the chance to win a free video package! I think this would be such a great contest for you! If you want more details you can email me or find details about it on my personal blog on Monday.
