I have a few more questions…

What time is your wedding? How formal do you want your bms to be? How formal do you want your guests to be dressed? Whats your venue like?

Ok…Check out some of these styles…A few are over the budget, but if you go during the monthly Bridesmaid or Best Man sale it will be pretty close to where you want to be.

As far as differentiateing the MOH’s I would either change the sash color or add a sash/broach that they like. Or put them in a complementary color. As far as what to look for, I liked to tell my brides to pick one element of your dress that you like and go from there. So for example your dress is a straight neckline a-line dress. so I would either look for a straight neck line, or an a-line dress. The reason I like the second one is because it has the straight neck line your dress has along with a great structured top, but its a pencil skirt so it will complement but not match. The sash can come in the same color as the dress making it stand out less. I also personally like to stick with similar fabrics (satin with satin etc) but that is a personal taste of mine.

Hope This Helps give you some ideas! If you have any more questions please let me know!

ETA: I saw you want off the rack…I know AA does not charge shipping unless there is a rush fee…but I can do a quicker search there because I am most familar with their product.

I know my girls did the same thing! I finally made an executive decision and picked one of their top sellers before I left. It can be hard picking a BMS dress…but it can be harder if your girls are opinionated. So I understand the frustrations of wanting their imput….but at the same time…I wasn’t sure I really wanted it.
