I got a call last week that the bridesmaids dresses had arrived and I was very excited but also nervous. In an older post I talked about finding them and included a picture but it was small and you really couldn't see much. The sample dress the girls tried on was a coral color opposed to yellow. There were other dresses by that designer in the yellow I had picked out but they were chiffon and the dresses I was wanting were silk. She had warned me the color could differ between the two fabrics and I have been anxious to see what the finished product looked like. To make matters worse I had a dream last night that when I went to look at the dresses for the first time I absolutely HATED the color! In my dream somehow they turned out green haha, don't ask me why! Anyways, from the beginning my number one priority was to not end up with pastel yellow dresses. My wedding is in April and I knew my bridesmaids would be at their fairest skin tone during this time of the year and I didn't want to make them wear pastel yellow. But it was much harder than I thought to find yellow dresses that weren't pastel but also not neon yellow. Well...... I LOVE them!!!! One of my bridesmaids was with me and she loved them too! The color turned out very rich and it was the exact color I had wanted :) I really don't think they will wash out the girls and I think they will look great up against the charcoal grey suits. I took a picture but unfortunately it was just on the hanger.
I also love that I was able to find a bridesmaids dress with a sweetheart neckline just like my dress. If you forgot what mine looks like I'll remind you :)
So what do you think? Do you like how the the color turned out? Do you think it will look good against the grey suits? Do you think it will wash out the girls skin tone? Sorry for so many questions I just love all your input!
Hope you all are having a great week!

I was soooo excited when I got to my mailbox and saw a package waiting for me! I think we should do another exchange of some sort.... Not sure what but we should think of something! Anyways, I was paired up with Jennifer over at The Adventures Of Our Army Life and she did such a good job picking out a scarf I can wear with soooo many outfits. Thanks so much! If you're not following her blog you definitely should!
Well I hope you all have a great weekend!
