The only restrictions I gave them was no sequins, no glitter, and don't buy a solid lace dress like mine.
They had free will to choose any style, price, or brand of dress that they wanted.
I was pretty stressed about if it would all come together, but I couldn't have been more pleased with the result.
I'm not certain of the brands of all of the dresses, but the ones I do know are:
Second on the left: Jessica Simpson
Third on the left: RicketyRack.com
Fourth on the left: came from Altar'd State, not sure of the brand
Fifth from the left: RicketyRack.com
Fifth from the right: RicketyRack.com
Fourth from the right: AnnTaylor.com
Third from the right: Donna Morgan
Second from the right: came from Vertigo, not sure of the brand
First on the right: J.Crew
. . . and of course you gotta do the laughing pic
The precious flower girl dresses came from Dillards.
I gave each of my bridesmaids a pashmina shawl as well as a pearl necklace from DogEared.com
A lot of people were shocked by me having 10 bridesmaids (I even kinda shocked myself at first) but I honestly couldn't have had it any other way.
All through high school and college, I always wondered if these girls could potentially be my bridesmaids one day, and I'm so thankful our friendships developed the way they did.
My relationship with each of those girls means so much to me, and I was thrilled to have them all there to be a part of our incredible day.
