I LOVE the purple first, then the top pink one second. With the purple, I honestly don’t think it should come up anymore, unless the bm is very busty, and all I think it would really need is a brooch to hold it together and give it that personal touch. I like the style of the dresses a lot. Have you been to a salon to look and try on bm dresses? The internet or magazines can only do so much and you really just don’t know until you see them in person and try them on. Take your inspiration pics with you and the consultant should be able to point you in the right direction or pick out some that fit your requirements.

I love the vintage bridesmaids dresses! We are doing a vintage theme and I’m using Dessy Bridesmaids dresses. Style # 2780. They also have an identical dress (without the rosettes) by Alfred Sung on the site! Hope this helps!

You should check out DSessy’s websites. They have lots of cute dresses with modest necklines and not-too-short skirts. Or if you pick a dress you like, you can have a modesty panel put in by the seamstress.

we’re doing a vintage styled wedding and my girls got their dresses from http://www.modcloth.com – they have the cutest selection and a range of prices. I also really liked the selections at shopruche.com, adorevintage.com.. there are several really awesome vintage sites.

actually, my dream bridesmaid dresses would have been from the etsy seller, sarahseven, but they were a little out of my price range (and my girls) – ranging between $300-$600. but they’re really beautiful!

There are a lot of dressmakers on etsy who have vingtage patterns.  I typed “Vintage Formal Dress” into their search engine, and came up with Viola Vintage’s shop:

 

There are TONS of other dresses, and it looks like she just did an order of custom bridesmaids dresses too.

Have you considered finding a local seamstress to see if she could make the dresses?  The dresses in the pictures you posted would probably be rather easy to make (lots of straight lines, etc., and then the dresses would be the color, style, etc. that you want.

Hi. I don’t know if you found the dresses you are looking for, but I am using Dessy style 2780. I think those look very vintage and the dresses are SO CUTE on my girls. They tried one on in the store and they loved them. May add some small gloves and definitely gonna accessorize their hair.

I’m not sure how dressy or cauaul you really need, just skimming here, but I have a similar situation with my girls and modesty! I found this site . . . super cute and all types of dresses! Vintage and suprisingly modest! I know it’s hard to find cute and modest all wrapped into one! Good luck!
