- Wedding: September 2012
I’m having a VERY casual wedding on a VERY tight budget. I didnt want a bridal party at all.. but after lots of back and forth I ended up with four! Two of which are my fiances neices, so they will be junior bridesmaids (ages 12 and 14) I thought the idea was sweet UNTIL I realized their mother would not be able to pay for her daughters dresses (she probably can, she is just one of those people that doesnt want to spend her own money on anything!) BUT thats another story.. So thats a little back story
HERE is my problem.. I cannot find a blush/light pink dress thats cheap enough for me to be able to pay for two of them, and also for another bridesmaid to afford that is constantly broke (you are probably starting to see WHY I didnt want bridesmaids..)
The dress pictured is from Target for $20, and if you buy 3 or more you get 20% off and shipping is free for orders over $50. These would be perfect except the fact that the color isnt light enough! I had this genius idea of ordering them in white, and dyeing them with RIT dye. Unfortunately the fabric is 65% polyester, 31% rayon and 4% spandex. On the site it said it does not dye 100% polyester, however nothing about a poly blend. Because I want the color so light to begin with would it be okay to try anyway, or would the color come out splotchy??
OR does anyone have any ideas for a blush dress under $20, or even a white dress without polyester that I could dye?? Sorry so long.. and thanks for any help ahead of time!
