I’ve narrowed down the choices for bridesmaids dresses to these three:
OK, I’m obviously joking, but I do love America. And the ”˜80s. And Snooki dressed as Cinderella for Halloween?
Dressing my bridesmaids—or Cheetah Girls, as I like to call them—has been more difficult than finding my dress. But I do love looking at dresses, so I’m not complaining. The eight amazing women standing up for me have been delightful BMs, and they all say they’ll wear whatever I want. But I know they all have different styles and preferences, and I want them to be comfortable with the dresses they’re buying. The control-freak event planner in me is not willing to totally give up control, however, so I won’t let the Cheetah Girls wear whatever they want. (Kudos to the brides who can do that!)
My plan is to let my ladies pick their favorite styles from a few options all in the same color, fabric, and length. I also want to keep the dresses under $200 ($150 if possible), and I need maternity options.
There are a lot of wonderful lines of bridesmaids dresses, but as I’m finding out, when it comes to fabrics and colors I’m pretty picky. Picky like a fox! Wait—I mean Cheetah! Picky like a Cheetah.
Love, love these styles. Bridesmaid WD40 and I visited their Pasadena store, and she looked absolutely gorgeous in their styles. However, I’m not really digging the fabrics. I don’t want anything shiny (it just doesn’t feel right for an outdoor desert wedding), and most of their options are shiny. Boo.
Priscilla of Boston – dresses in crinkle chiffon
Gorgeous fabrics, gorgeous colors—but a limited number of styles.
Amsale – dresses in crinkle chiffon
Love the fabric, love the designs. Don’t love the $250+ price tag.
Alfred Angelo – dresses in chiffon
These dresses have the best prices, but even with their 55 color choices, I can’t find one that is just right. Plus these dresses take a little longer to come in, so if we want these I needed to have ordered them yesterday.
Are your bridesmaids all wearing the same dress, or do you have varying dress styles?
