    i told my girls pink and flowers, with no more direction. i got pretty lucky and i loved them! but i do love all things pink and flowers. i did help one of my girls pick her dress out, but of course we both agreed on it and my other girl just surprised me b/c she’s out of state.

    Well, I put “my way or the highway” but that wasn’t exactly the case.  I found something that was “good enough” for me, but took cost and body shapes into mind.

    We had to base our BM dresses on one BM because she is a plus size girl.  She dropped out and while the girls do love their dress (they picked them out) there is still one we keep thinking about that would have looked so gorgeous and elegant.  But, like I said, the one the girls picked is very pretty and it has pick-ups like my dress so it will be a very cohesive look!

    I wish I had just put my foot down from the beginning and said, “This is what you’re wearing.” Instead, I wanted to be nice and let them pick out their dresses. That just dragged out the whole process by like three months, and now I’m worried that they won’t really coordinate with each other. But oh well–too late now!

    I picked the jcrew dress type and color but let them pick the specific style they wanted.  They all seemed happy!

    Yes, still loved them. I had my mom make them (and i paid for them) so they didn’t have much of a reason to complain =]

    I loved our BMs’ dresses! They were long burgundy rayon summer dresses – the kind made in India. I chose the color and they chose the dresses. The MOH was a lighter burgubdy than the others, but I thought it looked good.

    My sister/friends all wore the same color/fabric by Alfred Angelo and I picked 4-5 long styles and 4-5 short styles so they could pick which they liked best.  I was just happy to have the color I loved and I just hoped the girls liked their dresses!
