I'm shoving Megan out of the way for a moment here — she's been ogling dresses by Tova at Wedding Dress FantasyThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them for the past few weeks, and it's time for me to get my turn here. Ok first: how much are you freaking out over how the bride's lilac dress coordinates with her husband's dark purple velvet jacket? I'm dying.

But wait there's so much more — wait until you see what the bride had hiding under her skirt, and the suits her bridesmaids wore!

Peek-a-boo deep purple dress lining! I see you! But you know what I also see? Bridesmaids looking so hot in their matching slim-line black suits that I think my eyeballs just started boiling inside their sockets. I mean, I just… WOW. Please, can this become a thing?

They ♥ OBB; we ♥ themThis post features Offbeat Vendors! Check out their vendor listing to see how they cater to Offbeat Brides:

    • They look like different suits. The pants are definitely different on each woman – so ones they already had maybe?

    • Hi Megan, my "First Ladies" all wore the same jacket from H & M and the same purple velvet bow ties (which we had hand made for each First Lady and Best Man).
      I encouraged the First Ladies to wear whatever style of trousers/ skirt and white top they felt comfortable in as I wanted them to be individual too. And they were, all wearing a white top, shoes and accessories that were unique to their personalities 🙂

  1. how stylish is a groom in purple velvet {swoon}
    and are the bridesmaids bow-ties purple?
    the whole thing is amazing and I love the pomander bouquet!

  2. Seeing those ladies in suits is one of those "Duh!" moments for me. Thank you for pointing it out that a dress is not the only option! I never really thought about it but you are totally right! And yes, those ladies are lookin' some kinda fine!

  3. Eeeeeee I've just started discussions with Tova on a custom dress for my wedding next year and I KEEP THINKING I CAN'T GET MORE EXCITED AND I'M ALWAYS WRONG.

  4. I was lucky enough to be one of the First Ladies, I was super nervous about wearing a suit but I think they look fab! Isn't Deb the most beautiful bride?

  5. Omgosh!!! You're in my brain!!! I've been posting non-stop about needing help finding my Lilac wedding dress and I've been drooooling over this one on etsy! Just a little out of my budget though. It is so beautiful!!!

  6. *drool* this dress… it is beyond perfect! And the bridesmaid suits, such a great idea. Geez, posts like these are what makes OBB my favourite wedding website

  7. OMG!!! Bridesmaids in pant suits?!!? I LOVE IT!!!! I need to get married asap so that I may follow suit! (pun intended!)
    lol love love love!


  8. Holy crap!!!! My soon to be mother in law saw me commenting on this facebook post that you guys had…as I mentioned I've been drooling over this dress but could not afford it. My soon to be mother in law surprised me with a card tonight containing the cost of the dress! I'm so overwhelmed and overjoyed!!!! She said I deserve the dress I really wanted. I'm still in shock…cannot wait to order and couldn't be more thankful!
