I couldn't escape this picture when thinking up the look for my BM's. When planning their looks it is important for me to let their personalities shine through. I also want each girl to look beautiful standing alone and also for us to look great as a group.
I decided to pick dresses from Rent the Runway. Long gowns in shades of grey and black. I asked them to find shoes in one of the colors of our wedding (red, orange, grey or black) in either a pump or peep toed heel and as for accessories... we are going to figure that all out once we have the dresses in place.
They are all pretty excited about the idea of wearing designer gowns for a day, along with the fact that it won't cost them a fortune to buy a dress that they may possibly never wear again. If you are in the NYC area RTR has a showroom where you can make an appointment to go see and try on the dresses too! My maid of honor and myself are going to make an appointment to pick out a selection of dresses for each girl to choose and when they each can make it for a visit I will take them to try and pick one out!
Definitely go online and check out their selection and I got an inside tip that they will be launching a wedding section to their site for this exact purpose! how exciting is that!
