Bride’s Diary: The Bridesmaid Dresses!

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

Well, I am five months into wedding planning, and now the bridesmaid’s dresses are at top of mind. I have twelve bridesmaids. Yes, twelve. I have six sisters (two real sisters, two sisters-in-law and two God sisters) and six best friends, and I wanted everyone to be a part of my special day—the more the merrier! I am extremely excited about including my favorite gals, but the large bridal party has me a tad stumped on what dresses to choose.

I have been scouring Pinterest 24/7 for pictures of larger bridal parties, and have come to the conclusion that having a muted color palette of either grey, blush pink or beige is less overwhelming, incredibly romantic looking and doesn’t drown out the bride in pictures. Here are a couple inspirations:

I adore these muted colors—so romantic and timeless, and looks great on a larger bridal party.

Another question I’m having is do I want matching dresses, the same fabric but in different styles or to have my bridesmaids pick out their own dresses in this muted color palette or a specific color I choose? I can’t decide!

Thank goodness I have a couple more months to have a plan! What do you think? I would love some feedback!
