@yellowballoon: Have you looked at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses on-line and then looked at stockists

This is very strange that they’re arguing with you. Can’t you just pick a dress for them and that’s the end of it? I told my bridemaids the colors, and had them choose a dress to flatter their figures. They all got something very cute that they’ll each wear again. I don’t see why your BMs are giving you attitude about this. I think it’s very nice of you to be so flexible, but you may want to choose 3-4 dresses and say “Okay, choose from these.” Let that be the end of it– you’ll have bigger fish to fry as you plan the wedding!

Have you considered the two birds bridesmaid dresses?  They are a little bit more expensive but  they are essentially a one size fits all bridesmaid dress that can be tied in several different ways.  It eliminates the need and timeline crunches associated with fittingsand alterations, and your maids would be able to wear the dresses in whatever way that was most flattering to them – it’s hard to disagree on that!  I wore one of these to a wedding last year and we all loved them.  We all had very different body types but we all looked lovely (if I do say so myself!).  I took a look on their sight and they have a colour called butter yellow that looks like a nice flattering shade.

I say, if it gets too hectic, you pick the shade YOU want(grey, yellow, wth ever), pick a designer, and tell them to pick a dress of their choosing…

I picked shantung dresses in the target Bridesmaid or Best Man line, and told them to have at it. They get to choose black or grey(they can be mismatched), as our flowers are red and white.

I’m still catching slack from one of them, even though target carries all sizes. But, hopefully, it’ll all come together!!!

Hi there!

I’m having yellow and found my dresses with coralie beatrix on etsy – they’re a deep strong yellow – here’s a pic of some of the dresses with the yellow in the middle:
