Megan & Chris Wedding

Bridesmaid Dress Options

So we went to Charleston this weekend to go wedding dress shopping and Megan found her dress!!!!!  We had appointments at two bridal stores and ended up finding her dress at Southern Protocol, which is the most beautiful little bridal shop right in the heart of Charleston.  The two owners were there giving us (or Megan) all of their attention, and they were so incredibly helpful.  When she put her dress on, I actually started crying.  I couldn’t help it.  I can’t even tell you how much of a mess I’m going to be on her wedding day but for sure she’s going to look like a goddess.

One decision that she’s made that I think is pretty genius is that she is not having bridesmaids – just me as maid of honor, and Chris is just having his brother as best man.  She still wants all of her girls to be with her on the day, but not having tons of bridesmaids just makes everything so much simpler.  This also makes the whole bridesmaid dress thing pretty easy.  She picked out two dresses that match the color she wants me to wear (a purpley, neutrally pink) and I get to pick.  My options are Juliette and Nadia.  Juliette is clearly a little more romantic and lacey, while Nadia is maybe a little more modern?  Obviously they are super similar.  I’m leaning towards Juliette but I can’t decide.  What do you guys think?  Lacey or simple?

    Both are gorgeous. One thought, you might want to consider having the 2 dresses next to each other if possible to ensure the colors blend well together. Just a thought.

      Good idea Kel, we will do that!

    I love both, but the Juliette might be my favorite!

      Thanks Katie, I think so too!

    Juliett will look beautiful on you. What colors did Megan decide to use in the wedding? With just you up with her you should be able to do just about anything she wants.

      Hey mom g! This color is definitely in the pallette, although I don’t know if we really know if there will be a formal pallette? Pretty much whatever she wants :).

    Meg will definitely look like a goddess and I think that Juliette dress is on point for the goddess of honor. They’re both incredibly beautiful so I don’t think you can go wrong.

    • Colleen

      Thanks Tay! I think you are right.

    • Colleen

      Thanks Jan! I think that is the consensus so we might have to go for it!
