Bridesmaid Dress Ideas

Ok, so my very non-traditional, but very pea and potato wedding is coming along! HOORAY.
A little background info: We want a low key, but very fun celebration with our peps. I am only having one bridesmaid for too many reasons to list, but mostly because we're only inviting 50 people and my baby sister (well, she is 17) is going to be my Maid of Honor. Since it is a fairly casual wedding and my sister is not the girly girl type, I want to find her a fun summery/sun dress. Our colors will be types of light aqua, brown and ivory/light champagne. The idea of trying to match the exact hue and saturation of a color is silly and a head-ache waiting to happen.

So, in my off-time here I have a few ideas for Bridesmaid dresses:
1st up dress from Blue Fly by Alxia Admor for $62

Another from Blue Fly by Nicole Miller for $140

This one by Vera Wang for $140, I'd change the ivory ribbon to a blue ribbon

Urban Outfitters for $40!!! Now, trouble with Urban Outfitters is the colors are always different when you get them home. This one is called 'Emerald' but it looks very aqua to me :-/

From Nordstroms for $108 and on sale ;)

  • Jewelry made from the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge. From here

  • Run through the World of Warcraft: two words Treadmill and wow - exercising while playing wow...... and yes I totally think its about the greatest idea ever. CLICK

  • October = Beer and Zombies... of course!

Aren't these two ADORABLE???

The crusade of the dress

This is a no Tato viewing day.

Ok, so there is this thing, its a simple maybe not-so-white dress that you wear one day that seems to be so darn important. I have this idea in mind that my friend has so eloquently put it "You're looking for a costume not a dress" So I've been thinking so what? It's my day, and I know I wont get too too carried away. Here are my fine inspirations for your visual appetites.

This is my favorite la la la dream dress from Fire Fly

Here are some styles for the skirt that I just love love love

Tomorrow is dress shopping day EEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
