Striped bridesmaid dresses

I came across this wedding after finding this photo on Pinterest and falling in love with the pink and white striped bridesmaid outfits! I loved that they weren’t actually dresses but done beautifully with the golden neutral tshirt style to complete the outfit and match the bride.

After trying to find the photographer of this image to see more photos of the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses, I came across their story. Emi & Chase have a dedicated site that tells the stories of their lives together, including their beautiful wedding photos! But I’m here to focus on the bridesmaid dresses, because I was instantly drawn to how different these ensembles were and loved the touch of pink! Highly recommend checking out their bridal photography shoot as well, truly divine!

Black tie mismatched bridesmaids

I hadn’t thought to do another post on mismatched bridesmaid dresses, as you all know by now how much of a fan I am of them! But a friend in LA sent me this a few days ago, which was featured on her local tanning specialist, Sunkissed by Jenni website.

These ladies look absolutely stunning, and I think are such a true representation of a perfectly ‘mismatched’ bridesmaids for a black tie wedding. They are suitably formal, while still looking like they are part of the same bridal party.

Short and sweet, and sorry for blabbing on so much about mismatched bridal dresses. I am clearly keen to do this in my own wedding!

What do you think of these ladies and their dust rose ensemble?

Country style mismatched bridesmaid dresses

I stumbled upon Shannen Norman‘s website via Style Me Pretty‘s wedding feature of Jenny & Chad. These mismatched bridesmaid dresses are definitely among my favourite that I’ve seen.

The vintage style of these ladies coupled with a range of cool to summer colours really steals the show. Love it! What do you think?

Highly recommend checking out Shannen Norman‘s photography, the photographs she captures are truly stunning! I’m going to feature her this week on Inspire Me Wednesday so stay tuned!

Chanel & Thomas: 14 April 2012

Gorgeous location, golden weather, a stunning bride and insanely happy couple.

What a perfect setting for a wedding, in Adelaide at St. Peter’s College Chapel. The school chapel of Thom’s, complete with benches placed horizontally and sideways to the alter so that we could all see the beautiful Chanel walk down the aisle to her groom. The stain glass detail in the chapel was truly beautiful, as well as picture perfect courtyards for photographs.

To go back in time, I met Chanel and Thomas at university on the Gold Coast, with Chanel and I becoming instant friends, and close ever since. We may live in different states, but we catch up a few times a year and always on emails, texts, phone calls, and of course Facebook. The now happy couple were inseparable even as friends at university, so it comes as no surprise to see how incredibly happy they make each other in love.

This photo is pre-relationship days…you can’t tell the difference right?! 😉

I still distinctly remember the day that Chanel called me, and was all excited saying “I kissed Thom last night”! And two years later, an excited text while on holidays in Thailand after Thom proposed to her. Couldn’t be happier for these two, they are such a picture perfect couple that have built such a wonderful life for themselves and their beautiful puppies.

What a pretty wedding party

As far as a bridal party goes, these guys surely take the cake. Stunning dress, gorgeous mismatched bridesmaid dresses and handsome fellas! I really adore the style of the bride’s dress, classic and timeless.

Loving mismatched bridesmaid dresses

The more I see photos of bridal parties with mismatched dresses, the more I love it!

This one from Christian Oth Studio NY is a perfect example of picking a colour scheme, and having your bridesmaids in completely different dresses, and having it work! They all look part of the same bridal party, but each with their own sense of style and wear the type of dress that is suited to the individual. Plus, I absolutely love that they have different brightly coloured shoes on!

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses anyone?

I’ve never really considered having bridesmaid dresses that were mismatched, but seeing a few wonderful combinations of late, I’m beginning to change my mind!

This gorgeous combination photographed by Jill Thomas Photography works beautifully with the flowers and complements the girls individual style. Originally featured in Style Unveiled.

This is the other one that has really caught my eye. Neutrals has always been a bit out for me, being fair skinned and blonde. That’s not to say my bridesmaids couldn’t wear it though! These neutrals really stand out for me, and the fact they are mismatched seem to work even better. I found this via Belle the Magazine. Does anyone know who shot this wedding or the original source? I know I have seen this wedding party before and can’t place where, please comment if you know!

I haven’t been to a wedding yet where there has been a mismatched colour scheme for the bridesmaids, but I still have 7 to go this year so here’s hoping!

Favourite part of a wedding?

Now, this is always a hard question to answer. There are inevitably great things about every wedding, but each one, has it’s own unique ‘something’ that makes it different to the last.

For example, the wedding I most recently attended, was the absolute closest to what I would want out of my own wedding. My favourite part about it was seeing how she did everything and separated the events of the evening. Ask anyone else at the wedding, and you’re guaranteed to get a different answer every time.

But, just for curiosity’s sake – what’s your favourite part of any wedding you’ve attended? Feel free to add your own answers to the ones I’ve already suggested!
