Well, you could put in an etsy request for someone to make your dream dresses! That would definitely solve the problem 🙂

I don’t know about settling. Each of my girls is picking out her own dress, so I’m settling for whatever they choose and feel most happy with!

I agree…don’t settle! I love those dresses with more detail like the ones from Nordstrom and Anthro. There’s gotta be something perfect out there!

I agree, if you feel like you are settling, definitely keep looking!

This dress sorta resembles dress #4 in your post and could be sized to fit all your BM’s!

Why do you feel like you’re settling?  Do your BMs like it?  I think their opinions matter the most in this case.  They’re the ones wearing the dress after all.

@danielle… I assume your budget is $75 or so? I have seen dresses on etsy for under that price that were really cute! And I understand about the trying on, but they’re making it to your measurements!

However… other options:

I totally understand where youre coming from! I would be nervous ordering a dress from etsy with no way to try them on or return. Im also having a hard time finding bridesmaid dresses I like. Im very against bridesmaid dresses that look like the “typical bridesmaid” dress. There is not a lot of great variety out there. I keep hoping something will pop up. I know some girls do not care how the bridesmaid dresses look, but I care alot.

Maybe the only reason the ladies said dont settle is because your new choice is so different from what you previously wanted. Hopefully you and your girls will be happy with what you choose!

awww thanks =)! Ya I did find it. I can see what youre saying about a detailed dress being dated. I was worrying about that when I was picking out a wedding dress, but the sales consultant brought up a good point. You should go with what you truely want now because in 20 years everything is going to be dated. That is not necessarily a bad thing, look how many people are going for the vintage look. With that said I think you cant go wrong with a jim helm dress, they are always pretty! Also what im coming to realize is pick something you are happy with and dont stress over it too much. But trust me Im in the same boat with you!

Aww sorry…I didn’t mean that the Jim Hjelm wasn’t cute…it is! And I tooottally understand being drained from the looking process. My 13-year old sister will be one of my bridesmaids so pretty much every dress is not modest enough for my mom 🙂

Like july said, I basically just thought the newest dress was considerably less detailed than those other two, but if you’ve been considering something simpler anyway, it would make a great dress. Good luck deciding!
