A couple of my bridesmaids and I went to David's Bridal last week to look at bridesmaid dresses, and I totally stumbled across a third color to add to my palate. David's calls it Wysteria and it's a sort of dusty, deep lilac. I think it adds some interest to the cream and charcoal theme and both my bridesmaids really liked it.
With the addition of purple to the wedding, I'm thinking about a boquet that has all different tones of purple in it from really dark to light.
From the start, I've wanted to do a bright colored shoe with my dress, and I think a nice dark plum shoe will look great with my ivory dress. I found these shoes at zappos.com and I love the color and style. The only thing I'll have to figure out is if the heel is too tall. Since I'm above average height, if the hem is perfect while I'm flat-footed, I'll just have to go with flats.
As soon as my dress comes in, I'll have to see if I can do heels, I'm going to need as much time trying to adjust to the discomfort as possible!
