My wedding is EXTREMELY formal and I found my bridesmaid dresses at David’s Bridal! My girls will be wearing this dress in champagne (it’s not nearly as odd looking in person in champagne as on the website, the color is more of a soft gold the way champagne should look):

check out the euro satin bill levkoff collection, im going with the long sweetheart dresses in Horizon Blue , everything else will be silver and ivory,  all pale colors and neautral simple and elegant.   I had such a hard time picking a color because i was afraid to look sweet 16′ ish or prom’ish.  I think black would have looked very elegant and formal, but i just cant do it to myself, feels like a funeral color to me.  I think the champagne and gold colors are beautiful and perfect for formals!!  but my wedding in in october and its too pale of a color for me it doesnt contrast against the trees etc. 


good luck planning is a bt stressful, ive only been doing this for a year so far lol i still have another 9 months to go

@crackktheskyy:  We had dress by Bill Levkoff in Champagne and Blush. They had beautiful small trains in the back, I loved them.

Our wedding is next weekend and it’s very formal, in a country club ballroom. My girls are wearing these and I promise they don’t look beachy at all – especially in a dark color. The back is gorgeous and almost has a train effect:

@angel243:  So beautiful! I love those!

@crackktheskyy:  I also had a very formal wedding that took place at 6 p.m., and I wanted formal, elegant, floor-length dresses for my attendants. I am a bit obsessed with Caribbean Sea blue, and I drove myself crazy looking for THE color in THE fabric.  It’s hard to see just how much dimenstion and shimmer are in this two-faced, iridescent silk taffeta, but I absolutely loved them.

Mine came from DB as well:

They were a textured satin-like fabric so they were flowy like chiffon but satin-like formal:

I used DB because these dresses came in the size range I needed (2-20) and they were on SUPER SALE for $50 (down from $175).

Are your girls regular sizes?  

I would go to Nordstroms or Macy’s and check out their gowns. I think your loft venue would do well with a sophisticated floor length gown and you’d probably find some sweet deals now that the holidays have passed.

Mine are Jordan Couture Collection 1402 in aubergine, which is a beautiful deep plum color. This dress looked awesome on all my bridesmaids and they all LOVED it! I call it the miracle dress! 🙂

@crackktheskyy:  i lovedddd my BMs dresses!!!!!! Especially the color. The material is Charmeuse and the color is called Shamrock. Designer After Six Stylr # 6625

I guess because of the lighting the dresses look a different shade in the Church
