I think I’ve told you all that I am going to be a bridesmaid next summer (if not … I am going to be a bridesmaid next summer). I am excited about this for a number of reasons, but one of them is definitely that it has given me a whole new source of ideas to blog about!

I have always had my opinion of bridesmaids dresses and where the idea came from that you should make all your girlfriends, of differing shapes, sizes, haircolor, and fashion sense, fit into ONE dress. I’d love to know who started that tradition and I am beyond happy to see that it is one tradition that has been steadily fading from the wedding scene for quite some time now.
My friend Amanda (whose wedding I am going to be in!!) has decided she wants mismatched bridesmaids dresses for her 7 maids with bright, bursts of different colors. She isn’t sure yet whether that will be one dress in different colors, or all different dresses and colors, OR just accents of different colors … but regardless, it has given me the opportunity to find some awesome inspiration for different, brightly colored, mismatched bridesmaid dresses.
