When I first started planning my wedding, I had just moved to New York from Los Angeles. None of my bridesmaids were able to try on dresses since they lived in California, so I went to try them on myself. I had challenges finding red bridemaids dresses and trying to find a flattering style for 3 completely different body types. With only 6 months to plan the wedding, I made a pretty quick decision because the bridesmaids dresses took a couple of months to come in plus I needed to ship them to California with enough time for my bridesmaids to get alterations.
In retrospect I wish I had done a little more research because there are so many gorgeous bridesmaids dresses out there that you can really wear again after the wedding. I think I could have found something better… alas time was of the essence.
One of my favorite designers is Lazaro.
I lean towards feminine, flowing, girly frocks. They’re just so pretty!
