I just went snooping through this post because bridesmaids dresses were such a pain in the butt to find. I kept telling people the color was peacock and it confused everyone because there are different colors in a peacock feather. So then I started saying teal and that confused people and they started saying it was an ugly 1980's color and ugggggh the aggravation lol.

 

So we tried on dresses at a salon and I fell in love with a Bill Levkoff style but it only came in Navy blue. My maid of honor would not take the dress off and kept trying to convince me to change my color to navy blue- which is too dark for a destination wedding if you ask me.

 

But I managed to find a designer who carries the color I was looking for- Bari Jay- the color...is called peacock! LOL Like I originally stated! We thought of doing a peacock theme for the wedding but it can get borderline tacky if its all over the place. So we mellowed out the idea and are just going with a palette of blues. Our colors are navy blue, Aqua blue and the peacock blue. The navy- only bc my fiance picked a dark gray and navy blue suit for the wedding and I had to tie it in- but against the girls wearing the peacock it looks beautiful. Our church is all white so I think the blues will have a marine/ sailor vibe against the church. Here are our bridesmaids dresses:

I also LOOOOVE this style- same designer and each panel can be a different color or you can do two the same one different or get the dress in solid. I was concerned the navy would be too dark though but I love the look of the two-tones. Unfortunately for this panel dress- the peacock colored fabric is not an option. Otherwise this would be the winner with the peacock color on either side and the turquoise in the middle.

Either way they are both pretty dresses and I guess I can't go wrong. I just thought the peacock color was so rich looking and a nice contrast for the color of the water. I guess we will try both on and see what looks best although all my maids favor the first style. They like how its short in the front and flirty. Casual yet formal since our wedding is at night.

That's a pretty color. My sister decided on a highlow style as well and I think it's fitting for a beach wedding for us :)

What a chic dress! Definitely combining comfort and stylishness. But you can maximize the prettiness of that dress with the barefoot sandals, which can be used with or without any footwear on! Barefoot sandals will surely prettify your bridesmaids' overall look. Also, jewelry like necklace, earrings and bracelets will surely make your girls look more stunning!

Definitely, EVKnowsitall!!

 

Barefoot jewels are perfect not only for the wedding trip, but also a honeymoon and any vacation thereafter! They certainly make for an amazing souvenir of your wedding in paradise (and I'm talking from experience because I'm still wearing mine on all of my trips! :) If you'd like to order with your gorgeous colors, feel free to put in a custom request and we can dream them up together! :) Thanks for the kind words! XOXO

Does anyone know when Davids Bridal will come out with new short dresses? I def need their orange or tangerine.. I've looked everywhere and there's is the only one that matches perfectly. wacko.gif

    • 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
