- Wedding: April 2010
The little black dress (LBD) is an American icon for style, class and versatility. I love that brides are now able to choose LBD’s for bridesmaids-for sure the most “re-wearable” bridesmaid dresses out there!! While I didn’t choose LBD’s for my wedding party, I can appreciate the concept….
Have I failed to mention that I have NINE bridesmaids?? Yes, it’s true. There are nine! 🙂
I always knew I’d have a really large wedding party, so I’m embracing it fully and loving it so far! My two youngest sisters are junior bridesmaids, as are Steve’s (FH) two youngest sisters. Rather than having my mom and his mom pay for official bridesmaid dresses in our wedding color, Tiffany’s blue, I decided that LBD’s would be perfect for our junior bridesmaid’s. Since this decision, I have been on the HUNT for the perfect Little Black Dresses. I thought with the holidays it would be easy to find something that would work for them…. however It has NOT been easy. I have found a couple that I like, but nothing that I love. I want something age appropriate,affordable and classy. These three words must NOT go well together, because I can’t find much that meets the criteria.
So now i’m thinking:
A. Have dresses made by my illustrious and wonderful seamstress/day of planner, Katy.
B. Have them wear potato sacks.
Here are the FEW dresses that I like. Choice #1 is my favorite so far:
Does anyone have any recommendations? Stores/patterns that would work??
