hi, everyone! this is ashley of fashion and style blog ashley nicole catherine. i'm super excited to be doing a post swap with jillian today! we're both recently engaged and we're both getting married in chicago next year. how fun is that?? we've been having fun talking about wedding plans, especially wedding colors and bridesmaid dresses.




since i already settled on dresses for my bridesmaids, i asked jillian if i could put together some picks for her girls. jillian is thinking blushes and pinks for a color palette and wants to keep the dresses under $175. lucky bridesmaids, huh? here are my affordable pink picks!

1,2,3,4,5,6,7
  
thanks for having me jillian and hope to see a few new faces at ashley nicole catherine!

  21. Ooo I love these colors! How pretty!

  22. Those are all great and inexpensive picks! I think it would even be nice if a bride used a palette and used several different colors within it. Mix and match some of those in a similar color and similar shape, it would be a unique touch to the typical awful bridesmaids dresses. Great post

  23. oh my, i love this color. the very first dress is my favorite :) excellent choices!

  24. The first Zara dress is my absolute, hands-down fave! I just got married and also wanted inexpensive dresses for my b'maids. I chose a gorgeous grey Anthro dress that some girls got for $128 and some got on 50% sale for $64! Not too shabby, right?!

  28. 2, 3, and 5 are my favorites!! All of them are great picks and very affordable!

  29. These are all great picks! While the style of dress the bride wants is important, it's also nice to consider how the dresses will look on your beautiful friends. Recently, I've though that the idea of bridesmaids with different dress styles in like colors is pretty nice and allows them to show personality.

  32. Love your color choices. I especially love the more coral colors, as opposed to the light pinks! And how fun to have someone who is celebrating and planning at the same time and in the same place! xo Samantha

  42. I love 4. I feel like it's the kind of cut that would flatter almost any shape. Perfect for bridesmaids!

  43. #2 is my favorite!! Such a pretty style and fabric! That color is gorgeous too!

    My aunt has a bridal shop so she usually lets us get a good discount from there! Otherwise, I'd probably say Jcrew...when they're on sale of course! ;)
