Bridesmaid Dress Ideas (continued)

Dress by Monsoon (images on mannequin by them, others by me)
Shoes by Aldo
...

Thank you all for your kind words of support regarding the bridesmaids dresses. I have decided that out of all the dresses I have seen on the high street this one above by Monsoon is my favourite and have made plans for the bridesmaids in this country to try it on asap. I went last night and tried it on myself - they didn't have an 8, hence it looks a bit big - but I loved the way it looked and felt.

The ribbon tie at the halterneck echoes the ribbons that I have planned to tie around our bouquets and I think that the dress is close enough in colour to my shoes that it will look deliberate and not coincidental.

And perhaps not with those silver shoes but similar ones, so as to echo the shape of my shoes and to be the opposite colouring pairing to my outfit. And I am making them each a peacock feather headpiece to wear in their hair.

Now, just as long as they fit them all and they have the right sizes available, I think we might finally be moving forwards!

Hi Rachel

Thanks Ceecee, am touched that you thought of me. I went straight over and had a look: what a fab headpiece.

Pierre, I'm glad you like the blue. It is my favourite colour so I am pleased to have found such a great dress, now I just hope that it fits the girls!

Hooray! I love the dress. It's actually very similar to my best woman's dress. An excellent choice - flattering on many different body shapes.
