I have hit a wall. I found these cute floral patterned dresses, but the seller on Etsy doesn’t do custom orders so thats out. Then I decided on wrap dresses, there are tons on Etsy. But I don’t know what color, and I really had my heart set on floral vintage-y dresses. The guys are wearing chocolate tuxes so I have no idea even what color dresses to go with. I need help too!

I actually chose and bought the BM dresses back in November. The color of the dress is burgundy and I wanted to make sure that I would have plenty of options so I got them then while they were in season.

Had I waited until now, I wouldn’t have much option because I purchased my BM dresses from a department store.

I haven’t picked yet – one BM suggested a twobirds dress, but they’re so expensive and she’s the one i was worried about financially. dessy has a version of it, so i may just ask them to each pick a dessy dress of their choice in a specific color, fabric & length.

We went shopping as a group together in Jan but no decisions yet on my part. We took pics but I wasn’t really feeling them later on, we were all over the place though with styles. I am still yet to purchase my gown so will wait til I find one, which will be this month I feel. For colors I’m thinking plum. Mori Lee has a really nice plum I would like to get and they have very nice styles. I’ve checked stores sites like jcrew, limited, nordstrom but they were just ok. I also have been to DB. I’m disapointed in David’s purple colors, they are more purple rather then the rich plum I’m looking for.

We havent’ ordered but I think we’re going with dresses from Alfred Sung that can be found on dessy.com.  I’m letting them pick any style as long as it’s cocktail length.  We’re going with the color Majestic which is a darker purple.  I’m hoping to find them cheaper online than the salon where we tried them on.

@elliestan – One thing the woman at the bridal store said to me after I bought my dress and we were looking at one of the convertible dresses like the twobirds is that they can sometimes be hard to get the hang of in creating the different styles and is that one thing you want to worry about on your wedding day?  I guess if you go that route, have your BM’s practice putting on their dresses a lot in the days leading up to the day.  I do love those dresses!!

@sweetiejewels – you and I are completely different as I’m loving the dark purples and get frustrated that everyone else seems to be having the plums.  Have you tried Ann Taylor?

@MUI831- I will check Ann Taylor. They have nice stuff and somewhat conservative. My MOH is 40 and one of my maids is 31 and married so they don’t want too short or too much cleavage, meanwhile my other is  18 and loves it all.

I’m leaning towards this dress. The picture looks red but the color is actually burnt orange to coordinate with our fall theme. It’s Alfred Angelo…

@CaitMarae- That is a great choice, I love that color, very fall. I am thinking long dresses also.

In a preliminary talk about my dresses one request of my size 14 maid was something flowy or loose  in the waist so it hides her belly. I’ve been keeping that into consideration. The other 2 maids are size 2-4 so have no issues. I’ve seen some flowy chiffon stuff that looks good, even those bubble hems if we go shorter can be concealing.

Anyone else dealing with different body types?

We haven’t chosen yet, and won’t for a while, but I’m pretty sure we are going to go with a mori lee tafeta dress in a purple color.

I went shopping with my bridesmaids this past weekend and spent 4 hours in the mall to no avail.  I wanted to pull my eyeballs out by the end of it.

@Maifuture- Can you post the style of the dress you are going for? I like these so far, I would choose this vintage plum color. Like I said before 1 bridesmaid is a size 14 but losing weight so I’m trying to get no too clingy in the waist for her. The other 2 are a size 2 and 4. I’m still not sure on long or short. I haven’t seen any of these in person yet.

Ladies let me know what you think!! Thank you 🙂
