BM attire opinions needed

Recommended Posts

I swore that I posted a thread about this a while ago, but I did a search for every thread created by me and couldn't come up with it, so here goes...

 

I have 3 BM's coming to Jamaica with me (my sis, his sis and my friend), but I also have 4 very good friends that can't come to Jamaica due to various reasons but were originally considered part of the wedding party. These girls are still partaking in all the regular wedding party stuff, planning the bach. party/shower. I am purchasing them all gifts for being a part of my wedding. But my dilema is regarding my AHR. It is going to be a fairly formal affair, meaning we are hiring a photog and will be doing photos before and then during the reception. My BM's have a dress that I will post below and the GM's are more then likely going to be wearing blue shirts. Should I tell the 4 other BM's to wear a specific color dress or jsut let them have free reign? I want them to look like they belong in the pictures when the photog is taking them, but I don't know how to make that happen.... Opinions please!!

 

Darn, photobucket is down, can't post the Bm dress pics. They are cream with pink and orange flowers....

What about having them wear simple black dresses? Or brown? Kind of like how ushers and usherettes where black. It signifies they are part of the wedding and will have a uniformed look. Plus maybe get them a corsage or something??

Oh crap, that reminded me. I have parasols for the 3 girls and myself for Jamaica and we would use them for the pics up here as well. Should I purchase more??

How expensive were they? If really expensive, then NO. If not, then it might be a nice gesture.

I think having them in a different dress but with a unified look is a good idea. I remember your BM dresses too. They are gorgeous. I think it would be easy to tell all the girls to find a cute brown dress. Orange or pink are kinda hard because there are so many variations of the shades.

Parasols aren't too much money. If you would like everyone to have them for pics, why not? If they are honorary BMs then let them show off to everyone that they are someone special to you.

I agree ... having them in similar dresses, yet different from your BM dresses would be nice. Especially if you can find something fairly reasonable that they can wear again!!! (That's ALWAYS appreciated!!!). It doesn't even necessarily need to be the same dress --- maybe just the same color.

 

The parasols would be nice if you're planning to have pics at your AHR with them ...

I love your BMs dresses. Were they expensive? If not, could the honorary BMs buy them? If not, I'd say pick out an orange or pink dress that they can all wear to complement the other dresses.

If you want to use the parasols for pics, I think you should buy some more.

Ok, fine, you guys just want me to spend every last dime I have!! ;-)

 

I think buying more parasols is a nice gesture as well, and I think I will do it.

 

For the dresses, the ones we have already are $180, but the smallest size left is a 6 and 2 of the girls are a 0. So I don't want to have them in the right dress and the other two the off girls out. I am thinking about just telling them to buy a dress in pink or orange and then the color scheme is right, but not matchy matchy.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
