It turns out that all of the girls liked the idea of choosing their own black dress! I told them I want them each to pick a knee length black dress that they love and feel comfortable in. My Matron of Honor and Maid of Honor will have some sort of pink embellishment for their dresses. I sent a couple of the following pictures for 'inspiration':

A couple of the girls had mentioned how cute it would be to wear pink shoes already, and then I saw this picture and absolutely loved it! I think it's the perfect pop of color. I know pink shoes aren't the most practical (which is what I was worried about with a pink dress), but they're certainly fun! All of my ladies were on board with the idea, and some were especially excited - BM S is my roommate and as soon as she got the email she yelled across the hall, "Those shoes are CUTE!" I'm excited to have an excuse to look for some cute pink heels, now!
