I’ve been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings (3 friends, 1 cousin).  I’m finally getting married this October!

@techie: Ha!  The green was the cheapest out of all of them!  I paid $50 for it on amazon.  It was my favorite of them all too.  The yellow was $170 and the most uncomfortable.  It’s so funny…my bridesmaids dresses will be so different than anything I’ve ever worn.  They are all wearing casual cotton/knit charcoal grey dresses. I’m having a casual outdoor wedding though.

UPDATE: 

Here are the dresses from the wedding I was in this weekend. They were a very pretty color and the shape was nice, but they were polyester taffeta (which I am not a fan of b/c of it’s similarity to the material used for wind breakers and umbrellas) and 3 of us were ordered the wrong sizes, leading to zippers coming undone all night, and my dress in particular being very snug in the middle. 

But, the bride did do a good job of picking a pretty color and shape. Not her fault they ordered the wrong sizes. 

On the plus side, the flowers were gorgeous. I took the bouquet apart after I got home and came up with this fun little arrangement.

attached to the bouquet handle. Re-arranging required some creativity.

I don’t have pics…but I have been in 6 weddings. 1 as flower girl, 1 as junior bridesmaid, 1 as Maid of Honor, 3 as bridesmaid. So yeah I think it is time I got married myself…lol.
