ladies in waiting

I am all about the mismatched bridesmaids. They are picking out whatever they would like to wear, something that flatters them, they are comfortable in and is their style so they'll ACTUALLY wear it again. I was trying to think of neutrals that would go along with our ideas, a color that is universally flattering but not harsh like black.

I was inspired by this board, "Glamorous Gray"

(by elizabeth anne designs)

Gray is indeed glamorous, and would be perfect for winter. I found some really pretty mismatched gray bridesmaids:

This collage is great. With something like gray, i think all shades and tones work together from pale silver to pewter. And for added wearability and uniformity my last "rule" will be knee-length. A cocktail type dress that has a broader future than than a long silver dress (which coincidentally is what I wore to my senior prom! ergo-if you'd wear it to prom then I wouldn't recommend it as a practical bridesmaid dress)

I added this for the color palette. I'm not dictating shoes, those are fair game. I trust my ladies' style. But gray velvet ribbon is so beautiful! Must try to incorporate velvet ribbon into details somewhere...
