- Wedding: September 2007
I’m the maid of honor in my best friend’s wedding next month. We’ve been creatively stretching the ol’ budget and found some great bridesmaid dresses that need a bit of tweaking.
They are below the knee, pencil/mermaid style (fitted through down to the knees), and solid color satin.
To see the exact dress, it’s a dress from Target called the sateen pencil dress. Color is aqua. They now have a shorter, just barely knee length dress, but ours are almost calf-length. We are having them shortened.
We’re planning on adding sashes to them, but does anyone have any pictures of similar dresses or ideas of how to change this dress? I’m looking for some inspiration.
Some ideas I’ve had:
adding a sweetheart neckline
adding a brooch or embellishment to the neckline
having it hemmed to knee-length
We are definitely adding ivory sashes.
Any other ideas? or do you have photos of similar dresses to share?
