As much as I would have loved to get all of my ladies together to try out different bridesmaid styles, I knew it wasn’t a possibility. With three out-of-towners- one studying at University of Oregon (how about them Ducks?), one in Portland, and one in Virginia—the next time I’ll have them all in one spot will be the wedding! Immediately I knew I’d need to find something flattering for all body types, and of course I wanted something rewearable and stylish. Gone are the days of frumpy bridesmaid dresses. I also wanted to keep the price as low as possible, and I was drawn to the floor length style. All pretty typical requirements of a bridesmaid dress!
I referred to my Wedded Bliss Pinterest board to see if I could glean any inspiration from my pre-engaged, pin-crazy self. And what should catch my eye? The convertible dress!
The first site I checked out was Henkaa—they seem to be the OG convertible dress. Their tutorial video (you can watch it here!) got me even more excited about these dresses, but I couldn’t find a color that I loved, and at almost $170.00 for the maxi version, these didn’t quite fall within my preferred price range. Two Birds Bridesmaids had some colors that I could really get on board with, but at $310.00 a pop, they too were quickly eliminated.
