Ok, so originally I was totally against having a bridal party but the more and more I thought about it the more and more I wanted my two good friends to stand beside me on the most important and happy day of my life. They have been there for me through thick and thin and especially helped me through rough times when FI was deployed to Iraq. So, I just asked them (Monday) to be a part of our big day… 4 months before the wedding… awful short notice, I know. Nevertheless they were thrilled and couldn’t wait to book an appointment to find a dress.
Do you already have your bridesmaids dresses picked out? Can I see them?
I’m thinking about one of these dresses from david’s bridal- hopefully we can order them in time!

@sizzi09: I love the top two. For more slender petite girls the strapless is so cute and can be worn again, which is always nice. And the one with shoulders would be nice for your girls if they are larger chested. That way nothing is falling out. lol. Good luck and I hope you gals have fun picking out dresses. I come from a military family and know how much support from friends and family means. I am glad to hear that you had some sholders to lean on for strength.

@sizzi09: I wore the top left one in a wedding. Very comfortable and flattering on all body types. With DB I find that items come in quicker if you order online rather than in a store. They are usually here in a month or less. Found this with all of my girls dresses, my dress, and my dress from 2 other weddings.
ETA – I know I am not a December bride, but I figured January was close.

Totally not winter-y colors, but for as long as I’ve been thinking about weddings I’ve wanted a minty green and so I’m having celadon! Glad to see I’m not the only one having short dresses in the winter! I told my girls they can change into boots at the reception, and my MOH said “winter boots with a formal dress??” and then looked at me like I was crazy. Hey, she’s the one who will have cold legs! I think some of the other girls will change though.

Because I have one bridesmaid in Australia, one in Calgary and my MOH here in BC – I was planning on doing the easiest thing which was to buy the fabric and get them patterns to have them made – unfortunately after days of searching in person and online I could not find a pattern that was what I wanted. We have since decided to order them online a size too big and have everyone get them altered to fit. They are deciding between two, I’ve told them it’s their choice. ( they’ll be in platinum) unfortunately i can’t get the other to load 🙁

My bridesmaids are all wearing Jim Hjelm Occassions dresses in wine.
It took a full 4 months for them to arrive, but if you fall in love with something, most companies will do a rush order (for a little extra $).
If I remember correctly from being a bridesmaid in the past, the turn around time for David’s Bridal might be a little faster. So, if you pick something soon, you might be able to get it in time without a rush order 🙂 Good luck and let us know what you end up picking!

My Bridesmaids are wearing Alexia. Everyone will be in the same color (Claret) but my MOH and Jr Bridesmaid each have a different dress.
Dress on left for Bridesmaids. Dress on Right for Jr. Bridesmaid (straps will be added)

My girls will be wearing this dress from alfred angelo, but in eggplant color
Looks a lot better in person. Not a fan of the picture on the website.

Just have my MOH and she’ll be wearing the Dessy Collection 2851 in the colour shown, which is Regalia. It’s far more vibrant royal purple in real life.

@sizzi09: My girls are wearing the second one in your picture (where the girl has her hand on her hip). They’re wearing them in regency. Super cute and surprisingly flattering on all the body types!
