Learn and learn it good! I love color, and I love neutrals. This, my friends, is the perfect combination of both! Dusty colors! Not to0 far off from the super pretty soft beiges/nudes that we’ve seen on bridesmaids but this offers a bit more variety. I will be a bridesmaid this summer, and the bride has picked ‘dusty’ as her bridesmaids color scheme! It’s very classic, fashion-forward and will be around forever, I just know it. We’ll be wearing different colors, but they will all match in tone and saturation. What is ‘dusty’ you ask? It’s a way to describe the tone and saturation of a color. Think of it as softening and desaturating the vividness out of a color – muted if you will. Not the same as the brightness – as you can have bright dusty. Confused?! Haha, your eye will eventually get the hang of it. Check out the dusty board we’ve created and be inspired!

We’ve seen the trend with bridesmaid dresses go to cocktail style and mini. Now lets take it one step further and go to cotton blends for that oh-so casual yet sophisticated look. What’s even better? They’ll LOVE wearing these over and over! I’m completely in love with the new seersucker cotton bridesmaid dresses at Thread Design. I’ll take the one on the right please.

With the growing trend of small bridal parties, cocktail bridesmaid dresses and budget crunching, hitting up the sale racks is the way to go! After doing a little shopping myself this past weekend, I realized how much you can save and still have your bridal party looking amazing for your big day! And in most cases, looking completely unique. All the dresses I am featuring today are currently on sale between $40 to $100! (more…)

I thought this would make a great gift or keepsake for your bridesmaids on your wedding day – custom blend nail polish from Giella! Use a fabric swatch from their dresses or pick a complimentary color from their online swatches to guide you to the perfect shade! Giella also has custom eye, lip, face makeup and accessories!

Communicating to your bridesmaids can be special and thoughtful! Call me old-fashioned, but I adore hand-written notes and letters! After picking your bridesmaids (read article), send them a hand-crafted note asking them to be a part of your important day instead of calling/emailing. A small gesture with a huge response! Check out Letter Perfect by Martha Stewart. Also, picking your bridesmaids attire can be daunting. With so many options and variety of sizes, it can be hard to keep things straight. Communicate with your ladies by crafting dress, fabric, shoe and jewelry details on paper. This will give everyone an idea of the style and keep communication clear, especially if you live in different regions. Everyone will appreciate having a handy card to reference.
