    Great story! I absolutely love the flowers you have in the pictures there, it makes for a great match!

    I’m going through a similar issue right now. I’m into the idea of two-toned bridesmaid dresses; the top being white and the bottom being mustard. Unfortunately most of the white/mustard combinations I find are either a) too yellow, b) too orange, or c) ridiculously out of budget. Fortunately SO and I aren’t engaged yet, we just toss ideas at each other. So I chose “other” in your poll.

    My bridesmaids dresses were $230 or something around there, and we ordered them from best bridal prices and they were $190 so thats a hefty discount. My fiances sister also got her dresses form there, and there were no problems at all http://www.bestbridalprices.com/?PID=2203897&afsrc=1&src=cj  I LOVE my bridesmaids dresses, and this place offers a discount without any problems πŸ™‚

    That dress matches the flower perfectly! 

    I had a similar dilemma in that we are having a summer wedding in a cooler woodsy environment, so the typical summer pastels don’t really work. I decided I wanted something “neutral” that would really compliment our setting. But grey/silver was out since my brother had just used it in his wedding and I wanted to be different, and black was out because the moms were against it. I had seen lots of pictures I liked that were that blush color but in person I couldn’t find a good blush anywhere..everything was either bubblegum, fuschia, or lavender…so blush was out. So at this point I was hoping to find a foresty green, muted gold, or some kind of attractive brown…this was really difficult.

    Finally I found JCrew’s Monterey Pine color which was perfect..had the woodsy organic but formal vintage combo vibe I wanted. Then we had to hustle bc they discontinued the color! But luckily there were just enough sizes left to fit my girls! It was meant to be πŸ™‚

    Congrats on finding your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!

    I love that dress! 

    Finding the bridesmaid dresses was probably the 2nd hardest part of wedding planning for me after finding a venue so I didn’t even settle on a dress until a few months before the wedding. Finding a floor length black dress for under $100 while looking amazing on all 4 of my girls was hard. I’m glad you had an easier time than I did and they look lovely!!

    Awesome story!!! πŸ˜€ This really helps to motivate me to put my rear in gear and find my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!

    I have a similar dilemma… I’ve changed my wedding colors about 3 times and can’t find a style of dress that I like (I LOVE your dresses! They’re so flattering!). My wedding is in February, so I would like for the dresses to be long. I’ll get to looking at the winter styles and see what I can’t come up with! Thank you so much for the inspiration to not give up! LOL! I’ve wanted to throw in the towel and hit up Vegas MULTIPLE times already, and I still have 15 months until my wedding πŸ˜‰
