k8:  There is no need for you to try to rain on my parade either, if you knew a shred about the weddings at Disney you’d know most of them are pretty formal affairs. Your attack is thus nul, invalid, petty, and not even relevant to this thread.

What was relevant was as stated one of my bridesmaids also had no interest in these dresses. I did not say that they aren’t fantastic for certain situations they however were not what we wanted in our celebration. I mentioned it because it here because it had been brought up in my situation. I personally think that no matter how great it looks on the person wearing the dress it also looks exceedingly informal. I would never personally wear a convertable dress to an evening wedding even as a guest. Looking nice does not translate to formal attire. No matter how may times you iron your denim jeans they are denim jeans they are not dress slax end story.

To top it off the bridesmaid that mentioned these dresses wasnt concerned with costs she just thought these would be easier to obtain than bridesmaids dresses. My two girls are very differently proportioned the maid of honor is very difficult to fit. She was the one who wasn’t having it, and prefered shelling money for a dress with alterations. She also did not want to deal with the multiple straps of the dress it was too much hassle for her.

The decision wasnt a monetary one out of either of the girls. The decision was made out of formality. The dresses that were chosen were expensive yes but they did have say in those dresses. I had brought a handful of dress options to them this was my favorite they went with it and picked their own style.

The point of my post is that if she is having a formal wedding this is not a formal dress. The other point is she may have ladies who do not like this style of dress or feel comfortable in it. As stated I was not the only one anti these dresses my Maid/Matron of Honor hates them with a passion. I would atleast wear one out strolling down town on a summer afternoon, she wont wear one of these by choice period.  I think as a bride your ladies should have some say and when you have one that is 100% against something that hould probably be heard and her reasoning behind it, her reasoning was fairly sound.

SurelyAsTheSunWillRise:  I stopped by Henkaa’s Toronto retail store last week while I was wedding planning. I also took one of my bridesmaids with me. The dresses look great in person! The fabric is pretty heavy (especially for a jersey). They don’t cling, but fall nicely away from the body. And let me tell you, the bridesmaid that I took with me is 6’2″ and plus size and it looked amazing on her. And shockingly was long enough for her, which was one issue that we were running into with traditional bridesmaid dresses.

I’m also seriously considering getting one in a different colour for myself. I like that it travels well, and that it is washable! Definitely a nice dress!!
