So I had my bridesmaids vote—did they want to…
a) Choose their own dresses from within my color palette (red, magenta, & fuchsia)
b) Choose their dress from the Alfred Sung line in Barcelona, Dahlia, or Watermelon dupioni

With six voters, how did we turn out?? (DRUM ROLL…)
It was a 6-0 vote for b) the Alfred Sung line!
I was a little surprised that it was unanimous, but that also made it very easy to “break the news” to everyone!
They used Weddington Way to select some preliminary favorites. Then, for the four ladies who live in Chicago with me (so not my future SILs), we went on an outing to Bella Bridesmaid to try on some samples and see the colors in person:
In actuality, only the color on the left-hand side is one of “my” colors (Dahlia). Bella Bridesmaid didn’t have any dresses in Watermelon or Barcelona that day, which made me very sad. However, I did have the swatches I had ordered, and the colors in the middle and right are SO close to them that I don’t think I’ll be able to tell the difference at all. They were still Alfred Sung dresses, but not the ones they chose—this picture was taken simply to have a picture of all three colors together.
Ultimately, these are the dresses everyone chose!
Then, we got all FANCY and had lunch at the Waldorf Astoria:
(Truth time: The Waldorf Astoria did not charge my credit card for almost six weeks for our lunch there—I was so excited that we ended up with a free lunch! Then one day the charge finally went through. And then my life got a little less exciting. Wah wah.)
Anyway, that is the story of what my bridesmaids are wearing! Up next—what my house party will wear…
