After agonizing over what to do about my dress selection I have decided that I will give my bridesmaids some guidelines and let them pick out their own dresses but they will have to be cocktail dresses in eggplant satin (or a similar shiny material such as silk or silk taffeta) and all by the same designer (so the shades are the same.)
Does anyone know of any brands that are affordable that offer eggplant in a shiny material? I seem to be having trouble finding one that fits all of this criteria =(

It depends on what your idea of affordable is.

The direction my cousin (bride) gave us was that we needed to find a dress in David’s Bridal Lapis or Alfred Angelo Eggplant, taffeta. This was the ending result.
I have to admit, I was skeptical on how it would have all turned out, but it was awesome and each girl had a dress they were comfortable in/ got to choose on their own!

keepmeinstitches.biz is where I got my MOB gown. It was very well made. They may have more styles in eggplant, but I’ve also seen some in plum.
Sorry it’s huge

Target actually has a super cute very affodable line of bridesmaid dresses available online called Tevolio. Here’s what they have in purple shades (several shiny options in a deep, dark purple shade): http://tgt.biz/1gH85Uu
