We’re So In Love With the Perfectly Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses at This Playful + Vibrant Texas Wedding

A few months after Kaitlin + Will started dating they spent a romantic weekend away at Campy Lucy, a dreamy 282 acre resort property in the heart of Texas Hill Country that happens to be home to five beautiful event venues. As they strolled through a picturesque vineyard that weekend, Kaitlin said that if they ever got married this was where she’d want to do it. 

Two years later, they were back at Campy Lucy saying “I do!!” 

Together with event designers and planners from Simply XO Events they brought to life a wedding vision that was vibrant, playful, and full of fun. These photos from Katherine Larson Photography capture the lighthearted and colorful vibe of the entire celebration. 

One thing we absolutely cannot get over?? The colors in this super cute mix-and-match bridal party color palette! When it comes to the dresses that Katherine’s bridesmaids wore we are totally smitten, and we know you’re gonna fall in love, too!!

These sherbert-tone invitations and paper goods by Jen Krause Paper Co are so colorful and modern! We love those wavy edge accents.

Bridesmaid first looks are such a fun way to make a moment out of showing your girls your dress!

Kaitlin’s bridal hair and makeup were created by Lola Beauty. So into that piecey low bun! Check out our list of 35 wedding updos and looks for every hair type if you’re liking the idea of an upswept look.

This bridal bouquet from Happy by Margaret Peterson is full of so many different kinds of bloom and includes all of the days playful colors!

Can we have a round of applause for Kaitlin’s low back sequin corset top wedding dress by KHYA that she found at The Wedding Studio? Kaitlin says she went into her dress hunt dreaming of something without any lace or beading. The dress she had her eye on originally featured romantic layered tulle. But then she spotted this glittery gown…

“As we walked around pulling different options, I was completely captivated by a completely beaded corset top dress on one of the mannequins,” says Kaitlin. “The stylist (who was shocked that this was something I was interested in based on what I had previously told her) let me know that the dress was being discontinued and that unfortunately they would not be able to order it. She could see my disappointment and mentioned that IF the sample fit, she could speak with the shop owner to see if she would be willing to sell me the sample – but – if it is too small, there isn’t anything that could be done to make it fit. Well, I tried that dress on and it fit like a glove. Absolutely perfection with no alterations necessary! It was the first and last dress I tried on, it was absolute perfection.”

This bridal party color palette!! 😍 Sorry. We can’t get over it. “If you want a bridesmaid look that is unique, work directly with your planner!” says Kaitlin. “We worked hand in hand with Simply XO Events to create the perfect color palette and curate the different dress styles! We went back and forth with lots of different colors, textures, designs, prints and eventually landed on the perfect scheme that aligned with our design! For me, I wanted a lot of textures and tiers to bring a playful feel to the dresses and have some cohesion – then the flowers are what truly pulled it all together!”

This mismatch palette was carefully created by sourcing looks from different brands. From left to right, the green dress and pink floral dress came from V Chapman, the lavender dress came from Hazel and Olive, the yellow dress is from Gianni Bini, the green floral dress is from ASTR the Label, and the pink dress is Sabina Musayev.

“The bride really wanted it to feel like her best friends showed up wearing their best, cutest dresses as opposed to some of the cookie cutter bridesmaids dresses,” says planner Jordyn from Simply XO Events.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Enjoy it and have fun! Work with a planner who can take all of the stressful tasks of wedding planning off of your plate so that you can focus on the fun parts. Don't take it too seriously - things DO and WILL go wrong. But embrace the imperfections and remember that all of this planning is truly to celebrate the love between you and your partner, nothing else.

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

The wedding was in a vineyard in September and Austin had not seen rain since May. In the evening after speeches, there was the most magical storm that rolled in. Beautiful lighting strikes in the distance that completely lit up the sky. When the storm eventually rolled in, the entire wedding embraced it - our DJ played Alanis Morissette's "Ironic" as guests fled from under the tent and danced out in the pouring rain. This was a moment we will never forget!

Congratulations, Kaitlin + Will, on your lighthearted and vibrant Texas Hill Country wedding! We’ll never be over those bridesmaid dresses ❤️ All the very best from GWS!
