    @candief:  No your not the only one lol I’m pretty sure my Bridesmaid or Best Man will be wearing long as well. Chiffon material something light and airy. I think long dresses look more elegant.

    My BM’s and I went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping this past weekend and wow was it exhausting!  By the third appointment we were basically looking at the same dresses over and over so we called it a day and skipped out to lunch.  At the first appointment we found a few top contenders but nothing that totally stood out.  I was originally thinking chiffon since I figured it would match my dress best (my wedding dress is made of organza layers) but at the second appointment one of my girls tried on this satin Bill Levkoff dress and it looked stunning!  Everyone tried it on and suprisngly it fit everyones body style great!  You’d think satin would be heavy but it wasn’t at all.  I was worried about how the shiny satin dresses would look next to my organza wedding dress but from researching on-line and pics posted here on WB it actually looks really nice.

    My wedding dress:

    Bridesmaid or Best Man dress which will be in color eggplant (Bill Levkoff Style# 124).  The Maid/Matron of Honor will wear same dress but with medium thick tapered straps:

    My married friends have told me that you can get bridesmaid dresses in 6-8 weeks. We’re not even going to look until the new year. As long as we order by March, I think we’ll be fine.

    I’ve started looking and will probably order in early January. Last year I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and the dresses we ordered took 10 weeks to come in, so it was only 4 weeks before the wedding and that was on the early end of the timeframe…so I’d recommend ordering at least 12 weeks out minimum. Some of it does depend on the designer and the color…the nice thing about David’s is that they can ship them from different stores if there is a rush to get them in and the colors match across different locations so if it is on the rack in one place you can just buy it and not have to special order them. Haven’t decided on style yet, but I’m leaning toward a cobalt/sapphire blue for my girls.

    @trixiesrockets:   Making the final decision tonight between AA 7242s (in Shamrock) or DB Style F14169. I’ve seen the DB in person but I haven’t seen the AA yet, so we are going to go look tonight. πŸ™‚ 

    What about you?



    ETA: See the picture, it looks awesome!
