Dress the Bridesmaid

I am going to be in my best friend's wedding at the end of October and I would like your opinions on a couple of things. First, I need to buy some shoes. They need to be flats because it's an outdoor wedding and we will be walking in grass. I would also like to dress up my hair somehow. Maybe a flower clip or something like it? The bride will be wearing her hair down so I think I will do the same. I think I can manage to accessorize but feel free to add your advice on that as well.

Our bouquets will be orange and green.

The bride is wearing Khussas similar to these. She will be in a traditional bridal gown.

This is the dress I will be wearing. (The bride picked the color and each bridesmaid is going out and finding their own dress.)

Do you know what the bride will be wearing in her hair?

I like your dress! Is it a very dark charcoal? Black or a very dark blue?

I'm terrible at this type of thing, but I love those shoes she's wearing, and your dress is very pretty!

Pretty dress!

I'm not very good at accessorizing, but what I would be considering would be black flats, and a bangle bracelet and hair clip that would match the bouquets...

What color is the dress? Is it blue?

If you wear your hair down, I would probably do a nude shoe and some bangley bracelets.

If you put your hair up, I would pull the top section up (your hair is shoulder length, right?) and pin with a pretty clip. And, skip the bracelets and go for a dangley earring.

The last I heard she was still trying to decide between a jeweled headband and a simple white flower.

The color of the dress is mercury. It looks sort of blue in the picture but it's actually more charcoal.

Okay, then I think I'd get the same color flat shoe or just go with black. And I think I'd go the bracelet route and not put anything in my hair. Especially if the bride is going to have her hair down with a simple flower. I think if she does the jeweled headband then you could consider something simple.

I wonder what your bridesmaids gifts will be. Watch it'll be something for your hair! Smile

I like that dress! That's nice you each get to pick your own! I'm not great w/accessorizing. I guess for your hair I'd wait to see what the bride is going to do for sure!
