Fabric Samples / Bridesmaid Dress Shopping

We went shopping to loom at bridesmaids dresses, and as I suspected I was not super enthusiastic about many of the choices. To me a lot of them were just too generic, plain, cliche or too expensive for what they were!!

SO after doing so antiquing we decided to stop at 'Fabricland' to look at what material options they had, to see if making skirts (like the ones in the 'inspirational photos' below) was a feasible idea!

And we found some GREAT colour and fabric options! Below are photos of both silk and satin options that we think would look great as skirts and sashes. We would probably use the 4 first shades of the silk for the Bridesmaid's skirts (as they are a nice range of similar tones) and then possibly the burnt orange coloured silk for the Junior Bridesmaids!

Then we would use the satins for sashes to go between the skirt and the girls ivory shirts!!


Aunt Ali has agreed to make the skirts for us, which is totally awesome!! So it looks like this might be a good option to get something a little more unique for the girls to wear!

Satin:




Blouse Examples - each girl will either be in the same blouse - or we will pick all different ones that make each girl just a little bit different (like the colours of their skirts)

I finally put together a collage of our own engagement photos. I am always making them for other couples but never us. I am thinking about getting it custom framed (when frame go half price at Michales) and then doing the same square format of our wedding photos. They will be nice custom pieces for on the wall at home and I like that you can show multiple photos at once (instead of choosing just one!)

My friend Jenn took this photo for us and I thought it would be great to make it into a poster! Great for an online 'Save the Date' or can be used for a 'Jack and Jill' invitation/Poster!
