Trying to find some more options for bridesmaid dresses…
Here’s the lowdown…I have girls ranging from skinny mini to very curvy and want to find one dress that will work for everyone…ultimately I’m going to show them several dresses that I think will work well and have them help decide on it.
I’ve found a few from bari jay, a few from dessy…basically didn’t like anything at david’s bridal…I guess I’m a tad picky.
The dress needs to be floor length (wedding is in November), and preferably not strapless…I’ve been leaning towards the one-shoulder look…originally I wanted them to be metallic pewter in color but have had such a hard time finding many in that color that I’ve ended up going dark grey…so if anyone can find any that are metallic pewter and not strapless, it would be a great help!

my BMs also range in height and shape….and I hoped for a dark grey w a little shimmer too. 🙂 great bee minds think alike! We ended up going w two birds in their slate color…it’s a dark gray but the fabric is a silk viscose so it has a shine to it. The girls love the dresses bc they can style it one shoulder, sleeveless, cap slv and about 15 other ways and the fabric is has stretch and super comfy. One bm chose the long length version and it looks fantastic on her. Pricewise, it’s an investment ( with tax, about 280), but at least they can wear it again. Hope that helps!

I would look at Amsale.com. They have stunning dresses that work great on all body types. I’d totally use them if they had the color I was looking for!

We ended up choosing Bill Levkoff 587 in Euro Pewter (satin material, but not clingy). I thought it was important for curvier bridesmaids to look good first, so I had them look for dresses that complimented their shape well. Super cute dress.
