Different Shades of Purple Bridesmaid Dresses | Wedding Trend
categories: bridal fashions, floral inspiration, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

Purple is one of those colors that always seems to hover at the top of wedding color lists and we’re OK with that! There are many reasons why couples choose purple- depending on the hue, it’s seasonally neutral, there are many beautiful purple flowers to choose from and historically, purple is the color of royalty (so perfect for weddings!). Today we’re sharing one of the top trends in weddings: different shades of purple bridesmaid dresses. You’ll quickly see why this is such a hot trend!

Different Shades of Purple Bridesmaid Dresses Tip: You can choose various shades of purple for your bridesmaids dresses as well as letting your bridesmaids choose a different style of dress altogether! We do suggest you keep the formality of the dresses similar though so you don’t end up with extremely casual and extremely formal dresses side by side- that can be distracting.

Different Shades of Purple Bridesmaid Dresses Tip: When shopping with your bridesmaids, only vary 2 style features such as color & style or length & style. If you allow the dresses to be too different, your gals won’t look like a cohesive group.

Different Shades of Purple Bridesmaid Dresses Tip: Designate your maid of honor or a special friend by letting her choose a different shade of purple from the other bridesmaids. If you’re concerned about opinions clashing at your ordering appointment, prep ahead with your bridal shop and limit the options each girl can choose from. And consider letting your maid of honor choose first.

Different Shades of Purple Bridesmaid Dresses Tip: For a whimsical look, use pattern to vary the dresses- a completely different dress can still be the perfect addition to your bridesmaids’ overall look if you keep the other dresses very similar to each other. Details such as matching flower crowns (or bouquets), accessories or shoes will ensure your gals look like they go together!

Great Find: Stephanie Johnson Bags
categories: favor and gift ideas, health and beauty

Do you remember that utterly perfect bridesmaid gift you received last summer? Yes, from the wedding that had you driving many miles overnight, wearing a dress that only your thirteen year old niece would choose and styling your hair like all the other bridesmaids even though it made you look like Marge Simpson?

You threw that little trinket away didn’t you?

It’s OK, we can all agree that finding a bridesmaid gift that will elicit squeals of delight and even a genuine hug or two is a challenge. Lucky for you, Corinna Cooke, a fabulous beyond our dreams make-up artist, passed on this solution that is going to make your head spin with possibilities!

Stephanie Johnson has created a line of travel accessories that are the real deal. This is a woman who traveled the world and yearned for accessories that would both complement her obsession with order and efficiency and satisfy her inner fashionista. Kind of like you!

What makes a Stephanie Johnson bag special?

Yes, they are designed with a meticulous eye; removable pouches, beautifully detailed liners and pull-out mirrors are the norm but I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge your inner Hollywood starlet begging to be pacified. Teri Hatcher, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Brittney Spears are among the long list of celebs who adore Stephanie’s genius travel accessories. Prices range from $24- $82 so that means the newly gifted bags your girls pack their cosmetics in could be the same as Cameron Diaz’s! How great is that?

Choose from 27 styles and 34 fabrics and with names like “Cancun”, “Mumbai Yellow”, “Vegas Pink” and “Chicago Gold”, you can choose gifts that are perfect for each of your girls. Your MOH will no longer have to use a cosmetic bag that has a peachy hue inside thanks to a broken blush. Bridesmaid #2 will be able to ditch the scary gold tapestry jewelry roll her mother-in-law gave her for her birthday. And no doubt, the hanging toiletry bag bridesmaid #3 received 5 years ago as a gift with purchase can meet the trash can!

Your girls are going to adore you for getting them the perfect gift (they might even forgive you for making them wear the planet’s most uncomfortable shoes) and you can move on to more important things, like choosing your own Stephanie Johnson travel accessories for yourself- Hello Honeymoon!
