Decisions have been made for the bridesmaids’ dresses!
We loved the dresses from Alfred Sung…
…and while I was at the mall the other weekend, I found another source of inspiration. These super cute bubble dresses from RW&Co.
My mom will be making the dresses for the girls, so I scoured the internet for a pattern to pull together all of the elements in the dresses that we really like. Enter the following patterns:
MOH-T will be sporting Butterick B5490:

And BM-D will be sporting the strapless Simplicity pattern 4070:

I love the pleating at the waistband on these dresses! We will be going the “different dresses in the same fabric” route.
As luck would have it, we found fabric too! The other week I was lamenting to BM-D about the difficulty of finding purple fabric. I was thinking that if we couldn’t find a suitable fabric in the right colour, maybe silver would be a good back-up choice? BM-D was pretty adamant about having a purple dress, so she went off to the fabric store and found some purple stretch taffeta that is really pretty. The fabric store was having a massive sale later that weekend, so we bought it at 50% off! Many thanks to BM-D for being so proactive in finding the right fabric for the dresses. And thanks to my mom, I think we will have some absolutely beautiful dresses for a fraction of the cost of dresses from a bridal salon.
Did you have a proactive bridal party to help find the perfect dresses?
