I am new to the site and I’ve been looking for dress ideas for me and my fiance’s daughter for our encore wedding. She is a size 12 women’s – and I am a 18/20.
We’d like our children to stand up with up at the ceremony and they are really excited. The guys (him- his 1 and my 2) have already chosen what they will wear- gray suits/ lavendar shirt and purple, gray and lavendar tie. Men are soooo much easire!
So now- comes the harder part… lol
My soon to be daughter – aged 14 would like to wear purple or lavendar also and I am struggling to find age appropriate dress ideas out there for her.
I am debating between wearing purple/ lavendar OR Ivory with lavendar accents…
Purple is both me and my FI’s favorite color- so any tips or ideas are greatly appreciated!

OK – I seem to be the expert at this. I would suggest looking at Sophia Tolli dresses. MANY of them are diamond white dresses with amethyst lace accents or overlays. Like mine!
Sophia Tolli Madelyn
Sophia Tolli Abagail
Sophia Tolli Carley
Sophia Tolli Gabriella
Good luck! FYI these are roughly $1200 dresses, but with some effort and luck, you can get a sample for MUCH less.

I think the ivory with lavendar accents would look very nice. 🙂 It would nicely compliment what everyone else is wearing, and would help you have that nice bridal look.
For your daughter, I’d suggst checking our junior bridesmaid dresses. We’re having my fiance’s 13 year old niece in the wedding party and we picked out a dress for her from DB (for cost reasons, and also because it’s a nice dress. (http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Short-Cotton-Dress-with-Ruching-Detail-JB3737_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Junior-Bridesmaids). Junior bridesmaids dresses are nice because they’re not childlike, though also not as exposing as an adult’s dress, at last in my mind. Right in the middle for those adolescents. 🙂
I think almost all major bridesmaid dress designers have junior bridesmaid options, and i’d imagine purple and lavendar are easy to find colors. 🙂

You didn’t say if you are looking for a “wedding” dress or a “dress” for your wedding.
Because you talked about wearing ivory or lavender, I am going to assume you are talking about something other than a traditional wedding dress.
Nataya has a vintage inspired dress in lavender that is dressy but not a traditional wedding dress.
They also have several ivory dresses.
as far as your stepdaughter is concerned, purple is very popular for this spring and summer. Keep your eyes open and I’m sure you will find something cute and appropriate.
These are a couple of cute dresses from J C Penney

Age appropriate dresses are pretty hard to come buy for a 14 year old these days! I think these look pretty modest and still really stylish, I don’t know your budget but maybe you can use these as a guideline 🙂 Hope this helps
