To all of you who said the pink dresses didn't look like a proper bridesmaid's dress you're right, they weren't! The girls wore silk Pazzi dresses from Calypso in three different shades of hot pink. They could be worn with flats (ceremony in a field!), had cute pockets, could definitely be worn again, and were cheap — on special for $89 when we bought them. One of the girls bought a second dress, in green, for a trip to Spain — and then wore the pink one to an anniversary brunch with her husband a few weeks ago.
And funnily enough two girls wore Pazzi dresses to the wedding — one blue, one orange. They were totally mortified but I thought it was great! I bought an extra dress just in case (of what I don't know) and might wear it to a wedding in Hilton Head next weekend. So easy!
