the menswear is also very nice (for the very fashionable male, would be a while before this look caught on in south africa beyond hipsters and gay guys… if ever):

bridesmaids

a friend of mine is getting married this year, so i’ve been helping her find inspiration for her wedding (another great excuse to peruse wedding sites, i suppose). came across this wedding on once wed (probably my favourite wedding blog) where the bridesmaids all wore different dresses, but still adhered to a particular style (in this case, short and leggy!)

it’s probably the best example of “unique” bridesmaid dresses i’ve seen, and exactly what i would want if i ever get hitched one day. i’ve never really understood the need for the bridesmaids all to be decked out in the same colour / identical dresses, but maybe that’s just me.

that’s a good lookin’ bunch of bridesmaids, too. okay, i can’t resist featuring the rest of the wedding, as it’s just gorgeous:
