For some reason I firmly straddled the line between caring too much and not caring enough about my bridesmaids' dresses.
In my crazy head, it went something like this:
-I want them to be able to wear the dress again.
-I want the dress to suit their different body types and needs.
-I want my sister (Maid of Honor) to not feel like the dress is too cutesy.
-I want my friends to feel like the dress is cute/stylish.
with a side of:
-I really don't care what the dress looks like because I'm not the one who has to wear it.
-There's no way to meet everyone's needs.
-If I'm not wearing it how can I choose it?
-They won't like anything I pick.
-I have no idea what color.
You can easily see how this became a dilemma, and thus something I avoided.
Then I found the designer Alfred Sung, in the Dessy Group. I liked all his designs and options. There was one particular dress that Diana fell in love with, and in turn Kathryn, too. But of course they were different dresses. Then it dawned on me: all my girls are different, why not have them all wear a different dress by the same designer, in the same color?
It was almost too easy.
Requirements: must be by Alfred Sung, in the Peau de Soie fabric, color: majestic (aka dark purple), & cocktail length.
And so I bring you the possibilities of bridesmaids' dresses you might see at my wedding (sorry the pics are so small):
Finally, piece of mind for me!
What did your bridesmaids' dresses look like?
or What was the best dress you wore as a bridesmaid?
