    @MsSunny:  Alfred Angelo has a lot of cute knee-length BM dresses that come in jewel tones. A lot of them are chiffon which is nice and flowy. 🙂 Just a thought.

    My girls are wearing Alfred Sung, cocktail length, in the silk dupioni. My girls all have curves (sizes 2 through 12), and they all look great in the pleated skirts. Have your girls tried them on yet? If not, I think you may be surprised. 

    Your wedding sounds like it would lend itself to that look that you linked to. I think a flowier fabric may be what you’re looking for.

    Have you checked out the Lela Rose line from Dessy? Super pretty, more flowy!

    OMG I LOVE that wedding with the rustic colours you posted. So gorgeous!

    I would definitely go with a different fabric from peau de soie. It is quite a formal fabric, and a bit shiny, and I think it’s too formal for the weddiing you have planned – especially since the men aren’t wearing jackets and are wearing tweed. 

    I think you should go for somethiing in chiffon, perhaps with a bit of lace, maybe something a bit vintage.

    How about these ones from For Her and For Him?

    They also have some cute lace dresses, but they don’t come in the same range of rustic colours you are seeking. I’m sure you could find some though.

    If you want to go with autumnal colours, it might be better to go with these rather than a range of browns. For a start, autumnal/warm browns aren’t that easy to find in BM colours. Secondly, the colours below a bit more likely to suit a range of skin tones. (I have cool skin tones and brown looks horrible on me. Admittedly, I wouldn’t choose any of these tones for myself either – since they are all warm/muted colours, but at least I wouldn’t feel completely uncomfortable in the navy colour).

    You could also probably come find some suitable lace dresses from Mod Cloth

    @VampireBride:  Thanks! 

    I think I’m living vicariously through her. I’m not having any bridesmaids, but if I did I think I’d dress them like this.

    @MsSunny:  No problems!

     

     

     

    I was searching Etsy (for something else) and saw the dresses by this seller.

    These are convertible dresses (and there are other Etsy sellers that do them).

     

    I think this dress in thick-ish weight matte jersey would be a good choice for a rustic wedding, plus it’s a good fabric for a range of body shapes as it’s forgiving. (I am plus size and chiffon makes me nervous – I need something heavier but that still has a bit of give to it).

     

     

     

    These are all in the same colours (but different straps), but I think diferent colours would also work, provided that the fabric and skirt style is the same:

    Another Etsy seller, Atelier Signature. I think these would go well will your theme (a little bit of lace). Not necessarily in these colours, but they have jewel tones as well:

    I like the modcloth/ lace look I think it’s MUCH more fitting than the more formal Alfred Sung option you first mentioned!
