Bridesmaids' Dresses

My small wedding party are three beautiful friends of mine, and I feel that they're each perfectly capable of finding a gorgeous dress that they really like.  Since the suggestion of "Whatever looks good, in a fall color" was frighteningly vague, I made a board of suggestions.  The photographs with the dresses are all from the (probable) reception site.  

See?  Bridesmaids can be beautiful without wearing matching dresses.

 Groom and Groomsmen 

The groom, the groomsmen, and the fathers have all been asked to wear a black suit that's not double-breasted and doesn't have metal buttons.  UPDATE: We've found the groomsmen ties!   Ties from Men's Wearhouse.

The fabulous camera phone picture.

Groom's tie will be similar to the one at right.

Bride's Dress 

 The dresses that didn't make it...I went to Catan's Fashions, Julianne's Bridal Outlet and to David's Bridal to try out some dresses.  In general, I had good experiences with all of them. 

 

A few details from my dress, from Wendy's Bridal in Dublin.  Michelle was helpful and knowledgable without ever once being pushy.  Wendy's isn't the most beautiful salon, but my experience was great.
