do as so many bees have done – bring the two of them to a good bridal shop, with lots of choice, and pick a colour and fabric that works and let them pick the style themselves. The only way to save everyone’s sanity.

I would let your bridesmaids wear diferent dresses in the same color. Just make sure you pick a designer you like and have them choose from any of that designer’s dresses. I decided to be even more lax with my bridesmaids because they range in size from 0 to 22, even the same fabric won’t look good on them all. I want my bridesmaids to be comfortable and not hate their dresses. All eyes will be on me no matter how good my bridesmaids look because, I’m the bride!  =o)

@Thrakena: I have a bridal party of different shapes and sizes so they are going to get their dresses probably from The Dessy Group. They are getting the same color, fabric and possibly length but they can choose their style.

Since it’s April in Louisiana I’d go with a shorter style. Since they’re both younger and have good bodies I’d say you can do something above the knee even. There are some strapless gowns that work great for bustier ladies so maybe have them try things on to see what they’re comfortable with, but since you’re going for straps you could definitely find some nice options with straps. High necks tend to look bad on women with larger chests though one shoulders sometimes work–and would look younger.

The rest kinda depends on your wedding and your style. Ruffles or simple? A-line or straight skirts? Flower/bow details or not? Shiny or matte fabric?And you’ll have to see if they come in a shade you could work with.

These are Alfred Sung and Dessy and DB
