    @MLDoddie:  Oh that is good to know! There is also a V-neck one on the site (has a removable flower on the belt) that comes in the same orange. I was thinking on having the bridesmaids wear either one, their choice. Good to know that you can easily return them though. I may just order one of each to see them! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ButterflyKisses13: 

    We chose those dresses as well. My Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing the long version and my 2 bridesmaids are wearing the short version all in Marine Blue. Being in Canada they’re $190 here.

    We are ordering them in November after our bridal party meeting in October ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m getting married in May and have to order my dresses by October 10th in order for them to be here by mid-March. Don’t wait too long!

    I feel quite the opposite. I think January is cutting it too close to order. I was recently in a wedding where the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses took longer than the brides gown and they were both ordered the same weekend.. I’m going to start looking this month and would ideally like all the dresses ordered by Oct/Nov latest. This way the dresses will be in and allow the girls plenty of time to schedule fittings and alterations.

    I told my bridesmaids ‘just pick something knee length and purple’ since they are spread over 3 continents. Can’t wait to see what they show up in at the wedding day! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not sure how that counts in the poll though!

    I think I have found the perfect dress for my maids. Its the dessy convertible wrap dress. THe top can be worn 4 different ways. LOVE IT! They haven’t ordered them yet, I am getting colour swatches first.

    What do you bees think?! Would it be okay for busty, curvy ladies?

    We’ve picke out the dresses and 4 of my BMs have tried them on. They said 8 weeks for them to come in so we will probably order no later than the end of January. It’s from David’s bridal since I have 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man in different cities/states. 

    Am I the only crazy one doing long dresses in June?! Lol

    I’ve looked but have not taken my girls yet. I was trying to narrow it down to figure out where I wanted to take them first. Right now I’m liking a short dress at Alfred Angelo. When I talked to a consultant there they said most people look and purchase about 6 months in advance. But she said “we can always tell your girls it takes longer if you want to get them in sooner to get the dress” -haha. And I’m trying to take them this Oct/Nov just to get them picked and finalized so I don’t have to worry about it later.

    My girls will be wearing different dresses, of their choice, in a light pink colour (or peach, rose, etc). They vary in age 13-30, size, and budget, so I thought they would be most comfortable and happy in something of their choosing.

    Some of their ideas so far (they have all found ones they love at ModCloth):

    So I just ordered 3 different Target bridesmaid dresses to choose from! My Maid/Matron of Honor is coming tomorrow, and I will post some pics of her wearing them!

    @BakeosaurusRex:  Those dresses are so cute!

    I feel like a slacker.  We’re pretty sure on the style of dresses, but it’s been hard trying to round up my bridesmaids!

    @alex88:  we are 90% going with those j crew dresses in matisse too! i am only wavering a bit because they dont have every style in 18 and 20 and i have a few busty girls that might need the room of an 18 :/

    if we dont do j crew in matisse, we’ll do AA dresses since thats where i got my dress and the girls will get a discount!

    i am feeling the crunch too!
