My girls and I are going dress shopping for the first time after the holidays. I’m feeling a bit of pressure to find their dresses during the first shopping trip because its hard to get all 4 of them together and the wedding is 7 months away.
I guess I’d just like to feel ‘prepared’ and get some opinions. I have attached pictures of my dress. For the girls, I’m thinking long dresses because my dress is pretty formal… (or does length not matter?). I’m not sure about colors yet, I’m thinking either purple or gray (our wedding colors are purple, gray, and yellow). My girls range in sizes from 2-32 so I’d like to find dresses that flatter everyone… I just want them to feel comftorable and gorgeous 🙂
I’d love to see some ideas of what you girls have in mind.

Thanks for the input ladies 🙂
So it looks like short dresses are still an option… which is good. People around me keep saying they should be long. Its July and I’d rather not make my girls suffer (like I will be LOL But I chose it!)
I’ll definitely check out Alfred Angelo dresses… hopefully they are available in some bridal shops too.

I think silver chiffon dresses would go nicely in a mid-length. If they were held with some purple flowers and purple high heel shoes, I think it would look great!

my wedding is in may and i picked long chiffon gowns by jim hjelm. i also considered bari jay chiffon gowns until the last minute. i do think length matters… but it depends on where you’re having the wedding, too. i second @pia2010’s idea too, although i am partial to long gowns if the wedding is formal 🙂

I just wanted to thank everyone again for their opinions 🙂 and show you what we ended up with. Alfred Angelo 7093 in eggplant/purple. We tried on about 15-20 dresses and this one looked the best on everyone’s body type.
I’m excited to check another thing off of the ‘to do’ list…
