Great recon. You really brought out the sass.

NB
What I really want to know is why on earth your aunt had her bridesmaids in black... How bizzare.

I know sunnyb64 said that the dress is navy; but it is really not unusual for bridesmaids to wear black. For a while, at least, black and white weddings were big. It is one way to save gals from being stuck with pastel monstrosities they will never wear again.

To add to that-- one of my friends from college had her bridesmaids wear black when she got married, actually. The girls were thrilled, because she also let them pick whatever long, black dress they wanted. So it was a good way for them to have some individuality and a dress they might wear again, and still have coordination. She also had sunflowers as her main flower, so there was this whole black/cream/gold theme going. It turned out rather nice, actually. (Never mind that I ended up looking like one of the bridesmaids because I was one of the ceremony musicians and therefore also wearing black!  Wink )

I did something like this for my wedding. I had everyone in black just about (even me in a black skirt and white halter). I let the girls pick the style of dress which they all picked the same one a short halter number. I had their dresses made by a seamstress I like to call mom. They loved the dresses! Two of my Maids have worn their dresses at least 5 times more for different events.

I love this Redo by the way it is so awesome and has given me some Idea's for my left over brides maid dresses.
