Impression Bridesmaids


I'm thinking about the dress on the left, in either that purple color or another shade (if available) for my bridal party.

^^^ I like it cause I think it'll look good on different body types, and the girls I'm thinking of for my bridal party are all different shapes and sizes. Plus I think this is a really cute dress to wear for other events after my wedding.

I LOVE the dress on the left. I want one! Like the other one, too!

Cousin is doing J. Crew dresses. We can choose from 4 styles. I'll probably end up wearing one of these two (they'll be in Black).

Just to update, I'm ordering this one!

Yikes indeed! Have you talked to the store? Maybe there was a mix up at the designer's end (happens.)

Thanks for starting this thread KSU! I wanted to, but I didn't really want to look like a super creeper since I'm nowhere near getting married. However, a girl does like to dream. Here is my polyvore arrangement of my basic thoughts by what I meant by "different colors and styles that coordinate". Comments would be appreciated. I guess my guidelines would be knee length cocktail dresses in black, navy, or jewel tone purple, with a 40's or 50's feel (or just something classic), and silver or nude heels or flats. However, a pictures says a thousand words.

Thoughts? Do these go or not really? It will look a little disjointed but I think I like the effect overall. I really don't want my best friends to look matchy-matchy, we all have very different style and body types and tastes. Plus I'm trying to get the dress and shoes to be under $100 for the BMs. We will see how that goes. These dresses are all from Modcloth and the shoes I just searched for, but I'd be fine with Payless or Target shoes if that's what they had. Also what do you think of the shoes? Could I maybe add in other colors (black, navy, red even?) Thanks for any help.
I love this/the idea of different dresses! I'm so far from married but it's always been something I've wanted to do!

I also love all of the Lilly. I want that navy and white dress!

I do have a very plain idea in mind, which could be dressed up or down, but I may have to have them made.

What about worst bridesmaid dresses you've worn? I'm not claiming the top honors yet, but I am searching the images of Carmen Miranda to give y'all an idea of the atrosity I was forced to wear!

this is the dress I'll be wearing in April. I'm pretty sure she wants us to wear navy/blue shoes.



Not gonna lie I'm really excited because it has pockets.

It's funny I saw the title of this thread and knew who started it before clicking on it.

I love the J Crew Line. It's affordable, classic, and flattering to a variety of body types.

They also don't scream "bridesmaid dress" so the girls can wear them again.
