Wedding Belles: Bridesmaid Inspiration

I think this might be my first Wedding Wednesday post since my wedding,
which happened one month ago-yesterday!

I'm so thankful to have been able to spend the last month of my life
married to my best friend :)

Anyways, today we're talking bridesmaids.

These are the girls who are your best friends,
they're there to make you laugh,
to help you keep your cool,
and most importantly-
to help you hold your dress when you pee!

In all seriousness,
I have rounded up some pictures to share with you of bridesmaids dresses that I love
and also accessories, & bouquets for them too!

If you're looking for a color scheme that will work with any time of the year, nude colors are the way to go!
I'm a huge fan of long dresses, the sweetheart neckline and soft flow of fabric on these are so flattering and would be on many shapes and sizes!
I love that the bouquets chosen are very subdued and aren't overwhelming.
They are mostly white with bits of blush, I think the baby's breath is a nice touch.

For a winter wedding, this chic gray/blue color comes across really well.
Once again with the sweetheart neckline, long dress, and flowing fabric-it's just universally flattering.
Your girls could also use a wrap if it's a cool time of the year.
Blush and white bouquets are always gorgeous against the backdrops of bridesmaid gowns.

 Spring wedding's are the perfect time to bring out all of the color.
A bright blue, pink, or even purple would look gorgeous in photos.
The one strap shape of this dress provides some interest and is different than the classic sweetheart.
 I love the small white/blush bouquets chosen for these bridesmaids & how they are basically smaller versions of the brides!

As mentioned above, I think purple is a gorgeous color for weddings (& really underrated!)
These girls all look gorgeous in this shape of dress!
The flowers in a mix of shades of purple, white, and a bit of green really do make for a gorgeous bouquet.

I love the mix of different gowns at this wedding!
The girls get to choose the color that best suits them & their complexion,
and the bride gets to have all of her wedding colors represented!
This is also reflected in the florals which have bits of each color within them,
I love that because it brings it all together!

 
I love these ribbons for their bouquets because then there's no losing your bouquet or getting them mixed up!
Also, it makes a great keepsake for after the wedding day

I think one statement piece is all that a bridesmaid needs,
these earrings would make gorgeous gifts for your girls!


Custom Name Bracelets for bridesmaids gifts... I was thinking these would be cute for the little girls in the wedding. What do you think Lizzie as Eva?

Or, if bracelets are more your style-jazz up their everyday armcandy.
This bracelet with their name (or how cute would a monogram be?!)
would be perfect to wear on your big day & then to rewear time and time again.

Y'all if you want to do necklaces for your girls
(perfect for those sweetheart neckline dresses!)
then you could do pearls...(I'm guilty!)
but these Kate Spade "Partner in Crime" locket necklaces are too cute.

They would be reworn by your girls over and over,
plus you get bonus points if you put a picture of the two of you inside!

I hope these suggestions were helpful & that you enjoyed this post
I know I always enjoy putting them together!

If you have any ideas for Wedding Belles (or any other kind!) of posts,
leave your suggestions below :)

Until next time. . .

xoxo,
