LOL!! Ah, some of us girls just like wedding stuff. Pretty to look at. Some of us have also been bridesmaids, Maids of honor, etc. Just spreading the wedding love.

I wandered into a David's Bridal while on vacation and found a bridesmaid's dress I LOVE.

Two problems: It was on clearance, so I don't know how I'd get one for each of my "of honors" (they searched on the computer, but they didn't have the likely sizes they need anywhere near us); and I haven't picked MY dress yet! It's a style that would totally dictate what sort of dress I wear. I wish I could take this dress to someone and get them to recreate it in white, though.

^^^You know, if you find a good seamstress in your area, she might just be able to recreate it for you. Custom is the way to go if you REALLY aren't finding something you like.

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!

My best friend is getting married Sept 18 and it's a vintage wedding...
this is her dress (i dont think she is wearing the little cardigan thing)
the dress is ivory and she has a champagne sash that goes around her waist for the ceremony and then for the reception she is switching to a pink sash. her jewelry changes between the ceremony and reception as well

http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_...ures-All-Gowns

being her MOH and only member of the bridal party (just a moh and best man), i got to pick what i wanted!!

http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_...esmaid-Dresses

it's in truffle...and it has pockets and i love it!

the groom and best man are wearing ivory shirts, khaki pants (from nordstroms), suspenders, and a tie! not traditional at all!

i'll try to post a picture after the wedding!

If I were getting married tomorrow (not even close) and if money were no object (it definitely will be):

Wedding dress/shoes, bridesmaids dress (I plan on having 3 max, but possibly just one), reception dress and shoes.

I wore that bridesmaid dress for a wedding I was in a month ago, but in the Lapis color. Ever since then, I've seen at least 3 others who were in weddings or brides who had their bridesmaids wear that dress, and all in different colors!

deltag_girl, your friend's dress in on my short list! But, I would have to wear some sort of cardigan thing - no sleeveless at the church. I also want my tartan rosette.

As for BluPhire's questionning the Groomsmen attire, Mr. SID won't wear a kilt, the spoilsport! I do think I've got him talked into a tartan cumberbund, though.
