The Brides Maids

i, carlie, have been wanting to do a post on this for a while. i love chatting with our brides about all things girlie.. the shoes, the flowers, the colors, the linens, the dress. but when it comes to bridesmaids dresses, the most common problem is that most brides dont want puffy sleeves and salmon color tutus. heellllooo, my favorite!!! just kidding! brides want something that is more fresh, chic, vintage, glamorous or whatever it is, just please no puffy 80's sleeves!!! so i wanted to share with you some dresses that i thought were very pretty. my hope is that you walk away with some inspiration and that you please throw away the cut out of the salmon colored tutu!

these beauties are from anthropologie.

  2. I love, I love! I've never been in a wedding, but as my friends start to get married, I know I'm going to have to don a bridesmaid's dress soon. I'm so glad you posted this bc it might save me from buying any ugly dresses ever!

  8. LOVE these dresses! I actually tried so hard to get my friend to let us wear a Jcrew dress or something fun that we could wear again, but she insists on the thick "Stain" Davids Bridal get up. Im still trying though! (p.s. I am totally wearing one of those JCrew dresses right now)
