    Thanks! I gave the girls 5 options from the same designer- First we tried on different designers and they settled on a designer they liked who carried the color I was looking for- this color is a pain in the ass to find. Then, I selected 5 styles from the site that I liked. I told them I was ok with each of them choosing a different dress as long as it was one of the 5- because I knew all 5 were the same fabric and color so it would be consistent. When all was said and done- all 5 of my BM's chose the same dress so thank goodness it worked out haha.

     

    The designer is Bari Jay- his dresses are a little pricey. Originally I chose some Alfred Angelo dresses I liked, dresses from a store called Camille La Vie, Bill Levkoff, and David's Bridal. None of my girls fancied any of the other designs. Even though this was the most expensive they picked it- but hey- that's on them lol

      Beautiful and bold. I love orchids! Are you going to wear some in your hair or decorate with them?

        yes orchids will be everywhere in my wedding. My favorite flower! Expensive but hey I'm only getting married once.  They'll be in bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, our cake, etc.

          I don't know what flowers to use. I like Hydrangeas but I'm told they wither easily in the sun. I myself am having a jewelry bouquet instead of fresh flowers. I am collecting pins from all my female family members to make the bouquet. But I do want flowers in the centerpieces. There are these blue/ purple orchids that are really pretty. Just don't know if the resort will have them.

            I based my colours off of the Blue/Purple orchid. Where are you getting married? You may have already mentioned it....

             

            I'm getting married in Jamaica, and they definitely have the Blue/Purple Orchid there.
