    @BeeOi:  why don’t you give them the direction of same color, length and fabric and see what they come up with?

    My vote is for mismatched dresses off the rack, and let them send you a pic before they purchase them so you cam make sure they look cohesive!

    Spanx solves everything. They chose it, make them stick with it.

    Leave it up to them to sort out.  They want to order chiffon dresses, they call the manufacter and see if it’s possible. 

    They want off the rack, they go to the shops and see what’s out there and send you pics of them wearing them.

    Don’t let it stress you out.  They want to change, they do the work.

    As nice as those convertible dresses sound, they show EVERYTHING. 

    It is definitely not too late to go through Dressilyme for dresses. We did mismatched style (same color) chiffon dresses through them and I had the dresses right around 30 days after we placed the order.

    ETA: As for the person who chose the dresses and now wants to change it, I bet anyting she went and tried one on and realized that she could see lumps that she didn’t know that she had. One of my BMs was all set on her style, went to try on something similar, and realized that it emphasized things she didn’t want emphasized and had to change the style ASAP.

    Dressilyme takes about 30 days, I have ordered two dresses with them. 3 of my 4 bridesmaids have ordered their dresses through Lightinthebox, the dress quality and fit (they all ordered custom fit) is outstanding and the dresses were made and received here in less than two weeks.

    @andielovesj:  I agree with this. Let them sort out their mess and see the finished product. I hated choosing the BM dresses. Fortunately when we got to the store we were all in agreement with the dresses we got.

    @BeeOi:  I’d say the least stressful for you would be to have them each find a nice dress off the rack with the color/style options you want, then send you a picture so you can be sure they coordinate well together.

    I think you still have time to order dresses if you move fast!  If they can all agree, also, they could all order a nice off the rack dress (same style/color) from somewhere that has international shipping (Nordstrom maybe?  They haver really nice BM dresses).

    The was your final decision -and everyone agreed to it – so stick with it.

    The convertible dresses are great – but dont allow for bras in most of the styles.  Just something you should be aware of.  a girl I know had her bridesmaids in the convertible dresses and they looked great in person, but in pictures they looked scandalous.  You could totally tell the girls were braless!

    @BeeOi:  Thanks so much! I understand you don’t want super casual. I wanted formal attire for the wedding party myself. Can you post a pic or something similar of what they are wanting?
