Believe it or not, I’m having a harder time with choosing bridesmaid dresses than my own dress. Has anyone gone with a convertible bridesmaid dress? Specifically, twobirds or Henkaa? Are the two pretty comparable? Pricewise, the Henkaa is a lot less.
Did your girls wrap their dresses in different ways, or is it better to all have the same style? How about fabric? My dress is mikado satin, would it work with my dress?
Thanks so much!

Mine wore convertible dresses! We actually got the pattern online and had them made by a seamstress in a fabric of our choice, so I have no advice about those two companies. My bridesmaids mostly wrapped them similarly, with some slight variations.

Both my SIL and I went with Henkaa for our bridesmaids dresses. I can’t say enough good things about the quality/price/versatility of the dresses! The colour selection is really great, and they work for all bodytypes. SIL went with a mix of plum and teal dresses for her wedding, and I went with emerald green. All the girls at both weddings went with different styles of wrapping to best flatter their bodies. My SIL even sprung to take her girls to the Henkaa studio for a lesson in wrapping (mine either used youtube videos or invented their own wrap style). All the girls at both functions looked stunning! A few of them have even worn their dresses again at other formal events.
I’m even tempted to buy one for myself (possibly in black) because of how functional they are 🙂

I’ve worn the Jenny Yoo Annabelle at two weddings (in two different colors) and everyone wore them differently. Both of the designers you mentioned are beautiful and I think the beauty of a dress like that is that everyone can and SHOULD wear it differently. There are enough options where everyone can feel comfortable and still match, but not.

I had to wear a Henkaa convertible dress when I was a bridesmaid last summer. I honestly hated it. The dress is a million pounds and nobody really knew how to tie them properly (even though they provided us with video links)
Just my two cents.
