@dec: what a great picture!!!
@dec: what a great picture!!!
Love that dress! My mom actually bought that for her MOB dress. It’s a great price too!
I love it! I think it’s perfect to wear again. Good choice!
@sboston: which did your mom buy?! may i ask what size she wears if it’s the black merona.
@mimi: omg i hope that it looks good on me so I will know for sure that it looks good on M’s sister. But I really do like it and actually wouldn’t mind owning it lol!
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).
Love it! I love black dresses for bridesmaids! 🙂 Plus, its a dress they can wear again and again! 🙂
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]
@alundberg: yep, it was what i wanted them to do until they all went crazy on me. “no it won’t look right” wait what why do i have to pick it that is your job, are you serious no, i don’t want to do that. (and i just told them they were in my bridal party YESTERDAY!!)
@jessie: where are your pictures?! omg how cool is it that the colors are so similar? i am throwing a bit of silver in just for good measure (and the holidays are always sparkly) and some pale pale blues. my mom was sooo cute she goes you need the snowflake paper so that it shimmers, you know what i’m talking about. and i was like the metallicy paper (she screams YES) that would look so fantastic. lol i was like okay mom that’s a definite yes. i am pretty sure she wants my wedding to look like a winter wonderland (i hope she doesn’t start buying stuff) i want it to look like a pre-nye soiree…. we’ll see who wins
@rosie: thanks exactly what i was thinking, they could rewear it. i know actually each of them do a lot of christmas parties etc and the dress would be awesome to wear during one, i’m thinking i may buy it too since i like it so much LMBO!! but i want to purchase it for them as their bridesmaid gift. all of them have black shoes already that are great so there’s no problem with that.
@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!!
I love it…I just recently was a bridemaid in a wedding and we wore gorgeous black long dresses from nordstroms and the pics look awwwwmazing!
@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!
@alunberg: I am actually in love with an Alfred Angelo dress and all of the ladies love them (they are 140) all of them say they can’t wait to wear them.
@jessie: i’m soo just seeing this, have you uploaded your pictures yet?!
@sboston: i totally agree with you on the cocktail dresses, i am hoping I can find a cool one for the rehearsal dinner or bridal showers this spring.
