But I have already found my bridesmaids dresses!
SO and I already know that we want a very small, casual, outdoor summer wedding. And I aready knew that I wanted pretty casual, brightly colored floral dresses for my girls that they can wear after the wedding (for real…I know tons of brides say their maids can wear their dresses after the wedding, but really, no one wants to wear that type of material on a regular basis).
So, I was walking around a local store the other day, and they had the PERFECT dress. I have been looking online for months to find the dress that I would want to use, and came up with nothing. So to finally find this dress in the store that I LOVE and nothing else has compared, I feel like I have to buy them now, because chances are there wont be another dress like this!
My girls all already know they will be my maids (and want to be… theyre my sisters and two best friends since preschool and kindergarten, so we’ve been talking about our weddings for years) and we are all the same size, so I can buy them and know that they will fit. Its pretty much garaunteed that they will fit at the time of the wedding too because we are all very fitness oriented.
I really think I am about to go buy 5 of these dresses (one for me too!) haha. I can’t not. They are perfect.

@esk716: I was there today and didn’t buy them, but I talked myself into buying them once I got home… so I will go out tomorrow and but them then post a picture. I’m excited, but I know he’s got the ring so I feel like its not too bad. haha

Hmm… are they expensive? Can you talk to the store and see how long they might carry them? Let’s see a picture!

@RunnerBride13: They’re only $20 each, so I can buy them now and have the girls give me $20 each once its actually wedding time (I know some brides pay for the dresses, but around here its custom to buy your own bridesmaid dress, especially if they can wear them after the wedding, and especially when you’re on a budget). I will post a picture as soon a I go back to buy them tomorrow. But yeah, that is a good idea to ask how long they will carry the item 🙂

$20 for a bridesmaid dress is a great deal! Hopefully they fit all your girls well 🙂
good luck with the rest of the waiting (though hopefully it’s not too long 😉 )

20 is great! I’ve already found a venue, cake topper, and dresses for BMs, so I get it

Pictures! Congrats on the awesome find!
And I know what you mean, I feel a bit like a weirdo doing all kinds of DIY for the wedding – WITH my SO at times – with no ring on my finger. LOL.
But hey – who can pass up such a DEAL?!?! High five.
