For The Girls


And so the planning process continues….this time it’s ALL about the Girls ~ I knew when I asked my girls to be in my wedding party that I didn’t want an overall uniform look. I wanted the girls to have their own personalities shine through. But a little background….How I asked my girls!

I had done some research online to get my creative juices going on HOW exactly I wanted to ask my girls to be in my wedding party. The three lovely ladies that I had in mind were all in 3 different states {New York, New Jersey & Pennsylvania}…And I knew I couldn’t get all the girls together to ask so two of the girls I sent a small gift asking them to NOT open it until we got on the phone together & iPhone FaceTime with another.

My NY girl was easy to ask, she came over & we had a lovely dinner…we got all sentimental & started getting excited because we both were now engaged together & planning weddings & so it’s wonderful to have a partner in crime going through the same things I was.

I picked my girls for 3 very different reasons ~ Each represented an important element of my life ~ Past, Present & Family

After I asked each girl I knew I had to put something together that for all that really know me would make sense ~ A PowerPoint Presentation! Here are a few slides from that presentation showcasing & explaining to the girls why I wanted them to be a part of our special day.

Needless to say they ALL got a good chuckle from my PowerPoint because it’s just what I do! And so here is to my girls ~ Meredith {Matron of Honor}, Kristina {Bridesmaid} & Madalina {Bridesmaid} ~ I love you girls & thank you for accepting ~

Moving on! The Dresses…As you may have noticed in the images the dresses will all be different colors within the same family. The girls can pick the style & the one of the three colors that will be pre-selected depending on which BM Designer has colors that work with the overall color palette.

I’ve decided to head back to Nouveau Bride & work with Corey for my girls’ dresses ~ I had a truly wonderful experience there & everyone was so incredibly kind that I knew there was no other choice. The two designers that I think will have the largest variety of blue/grey shades that I’m looking for are: Alfred Angelo & Bari J.

I asked the girls to go online & pick out their favorite styles from each designer & give me the numbers so we can bring them to the dress appointment. Here are a few of the dresses that were picked by the girls! Which ones we decide on will be revealed after the wedding.

I’m really happy with the dresses the girls picked & I can’t wait to go with each one & make their selections.
