Love that dress!  My mom actually bought that for her MOB dress.  It’s a great price too!

Wow, great ideas!  I love that Bridesmaid or Best Man dress and think it will be universally flattering for your gals.  I had my Bridesmaid or Best Man wear black dresses, too, and I loved the classic look in the photos.  OMG, that Maggie in gold on you will be freaking fantastic!  (Hey, our color scheme was ivory/black/gold/champagne).  And my mom actually wore a black dress.  She had a champage one picked out, but just didn’t like how it fit.  About a month before the wedding, she changed to a black dress she bought at Macy’s (will look for the link).

Have you ever thought about letting them pick their own black dresses? It’s something that I’m doing, and I am SO excited about it!! Here’s my inspiration pics.

If you’re sticking with all the same black dress, I do like that Target dress a lot. A+ on “re-wearable”. [attachment=602741,78641] [attachment=602741,78642]

@crebre – I got a bit of push-back from my girls too, at first. But then I explained the logic behind it. Weddings are so expensive, and most Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (except for that awesome Target one you found) are crazy expensive. If they can get a dres they LOOOVE (or wear one they already have), and it fits them – both their style and personality, then it’s the best of both worlds!! Plus, then they can to go an actual store and try it on (vs ordering and waiting for it), and what’s more re-wearable than a black dress you pick out yourself? It worked so well for my girls, and we found some AMAZING pink shoes so we all have the matching shoes. I die everytime I see them!!

@crebre80–If you can believe it, I haven’t gotten around to doing anything with our photos or updating my Bio or anything.  PM me your email address and I’ll email a couple of pics to you, so you can see my mom and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

@crebre80, sorry I didn’t see your message until today.  She bought that dress in the sand color, size 14.  She just bought it from Target.com.  I’ve found several great cocktail dresses at Target that I’ve worn as wedding guests, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for the BMs too!
