Karen has a gorgeous vision for her bridesmaids.
Her spring wedding is shaping up to be exactly what she’d always dreamed. She and her fiancé want bursts of color, lush greenery and florals, all housed in a simple outdoor tent with a large enough dance floor for their 100 guests.
Karen knows that her bridesmaids dance to the beat of their own drum, and she wouldn’t change it for the world. Apart from a color spectrum of mauvy pinks, Karen is happy to let her bridesmaids have some freedom and individuality when shopping for their bridesmaid dresses.
The trouble, however, was managing all of it. With everyone’s input and ideas, it was tricky finding an all-inclusive way to keep track of everyone’s attire. She had an epiphany and realized that she could create a registry that included all her bridesmaid dress choices (with a few selections of her own), accessories, and even shoes.
Her bridesmaids were able to shop all from one place, mark the dress they chose as “Purchased”, and Karen was kept updated the entire time. She’s confident that her big day will look perfect, and her bridesmaids will be comfortable in their attire. It’s going to be a fantastic day everyone will remember forever.

How do I label dresses I chose for specific bridesmaids?
Each item on your registry may be edited to include your bridesmaid’s name. We’d recommend placing their name at the beginning of the gift name to catch their attention (nicknames are optional). Here’s an example of what this might look like for your MOH:
Blueprint is free for you and your gift-givers to use. Gifts are purchased by your gift-givers directly from each stores, and are only responsible for the purchase price and shipping of the gifts.
The only exception to this is if you added a cash fund to your registry and the gift-giver wants to donate. They will see a handling fee added to their cash fund order of 2.5%.
How do I share my mismatched dress registry with my bridesmaids?
We recommend sending a simple and decorative email invite to your bridesmaids. It’s best to deliver this information as early as possible, to allow for your party to select their dresses. We recommend sharing at least 12-16 weeks before your wedding to account for delivery, potential returns, and alterations. You can also share your registry URL as a direct link to your registry. Your custom URL can be found, and edited, in your Registry Settings.
