My Matching Maids

I have been talking about my matching bridesmaid dresses lately.  First, I mentioned the one thing I would change about our wedding is the matching bridesmaid dresses.  I wish I had let my ladies choose any dress in any shade of purple for an original look.  Just days later, I changed my mind & said I wish I had let my ladies choose any black dress & any purple shoe.  Did any of this leave you wondering what my matching bridesmaids looked like on our wedding day?!

I chose photos from our bridal party photo session at the Hoboken Train Station because the views of the bridesmaid dress are the best.  Plus you can admire the gorgeous train station architecture!  They just don't make buildings like they used to with the ornate, beautiful detailing but that is another story.

Without further ado, here is our gorgeous bridal party of our nearest & dearest, featuring our bridesmaids wearing a tea-length Cynthia Rowley dress in Smashing:

My handsome groom & my lovely ladies:

Last but not least, one of my favorites: me & my fabulous ladies plus the stunning stained glass ceiling:

I look back at the photos & I definitely see traditional bridesmaids in matching dresses.  I have seen similar looks before & I will probably see similar looks many times to come.  But honestly, my bridesmaids are my friends & my family.  They look happy & beautiful, as always. I am touched & honored they were a part of our wedding.  They could be wearing trash bags & I wouldn't care!

The reality is I can't change anything about our wedding.  It is said & done, a loving memory near & dear to my heart.  I'm perfectly okay with our wedding just as it was.  Our wedding was a dream come true!

  1. So beautiful and what a fabulous setting! :) xoxo

  2. I love your bridesmaid dresses, especially the color. I feel the same way! I look at my bridesmaids and I just see my best friends—all looking their very best. I actually wanted them to pick out different dresses, but they all agreed on the same one. But they did all wear different types of pearl necklaces. Some wore long, some double strands, etc. and I thought it looked so great..I wish I had thought of it first!

  3. You and your best girls look so beautiful! You may wish you'd done mismatching now, but I think there's something so timeless about these photos, and 50 years from now, you won't have to remember the root of some old-fashioned trend.

    1. Oh, thank you! & that's a very good point. Always so wise, Lena!!!
