Trying to find a bridesmaid dress? Tricky.

Trying to find one that will suit me and match what the other bridesmaid is wearing? Trickier.

Trying to find one that will suit me, match the other bridesmaid, and match the bright red dress the bride is wearing? VERY VERY HARD.

I am theoretically in favour of the philosophy that bridesmaids should wear different dresses, rather than condemning them all to radioactive green with frills - but in practice, it's a pain.

Yikes! That sounds like quite a tricky task.

Well, I wish you luck! And may you not have to juggle to distract the guests at the wedding!

And I'm thrilled that the bride is wearing red--I have zero desire to wear white, so I'm glad that other colors seem to be catching on.

I can never quite decide whether I'd go with white or pale blue...

*practices juggling*

OMG, I FEEL YOU. I am going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding where the groom is from a super conservative, very religious rural Southern family and I am like...this dark loudmouth Italian northerner, it is going to be so awkward no matter what. And we all have to pick different dresses! She wants us to go with black, which at least is tasteful and can be worn again, but still. All the bridesmaid dress pressure, plus it has to go from a conservative evangelical church to the reception. THINGS THAT END BADLY.

Well, depending on what the other bridesmaid is wearing, you could always go for some other bright colour...

Lend a bit of a "power rangers" feel to the wedding party :-)

My apologies :-p

Nah, not really ;-)

Black and white in a pattern with possibly a cute red accessory? That way whatever Other Bridesmaid wears will have to go with you - black and white is really safe!

I am guilty of being the bride that told her girls to pick out their own dresses- but I told them to make it blue. Because blue? Honestly does not clash with anything. It is really the only color that doesn't. It's also the only color that will look good on everyone, and that doesn't clash with itself.

I love blue...

Stylewise, I told them, again, anything they want, but requested it be modest. No short skirts, and no cleavage, and I retain the right to stick an undershirt under the dress, or a pair of pants under the dress, or a scarf or shawl over it.
