- Wedding: April 2013
Hi Bees !
We had a little dilemma with our Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses – we had them all picked out and ready to order… and apparently the color and dress were discontinued but the store never called to tell us 🙁 This was about 3 weeks ago. Our wedding is April 13th. — Fast forward to yesterday — my girls and I went to a different bridal store to browse and see what they had since we don’t have a lot of time left to get them ordered and here. My dress is ivory / lace and we were planning on having the girls in celadon or meadow green so that all of our flowers and decorations could be spring colors – pastels and pinks and so on…. the girls tried on a bunch of dresses but nothing we fell in love with. While they were trying on the last dresses, I went out to the “special occassion” section rather than the BM section and found a cute dress that I thought they would hate, but I asked them to humor me and try them on… OMG… they all walked out at the same time with smiles and we all loved them… they all fit perfectly and need NO alterations at all… and they were only $79 each !!! Downfall = it takes 14 weeks to order them and get them which would be cutting it close and they only came in the 3 colors that were on the rack… ivory, black, and blush….so we made an executive decision and changed the color of the dresses… to ivory 🙂 The girls looked beautiful in them and now the part I need help with is how to separate them to each be a little different… some ideas I have –
* each girl has a different color flower bouquet to match her groomsmen tie (spring colors)
* each girl has a different color flowers and shoes to match
??????? Please help me and throw some ideas at me !!! I know we are all going to look great and there has to be a few different ways to do this – I’ll attach some pics of each dress to see what you think… Thanks Bees !!!
