I’m taking my girls to a mall that’s halfway between where I live and where they live (they’re all in our hometown.) We’ll most likely be hitting up Nordstrom, J. Crew, Anthropologie, etc. Many department stores like Macys, Nordstrom, etc, have beautiful cocktail dresses that look like traditional Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. 

Do all of your girls already get along? I’m also planning one or two get togethers, most likely a brunch/coffee/DIY project one, and a signature drink tasting night. I’m really excited for all the fun Bridesmaid or Best Man things. 🙂

For me, it is extremely difficult to get all my girls together.  We all live in different areas and are on completely different schedules.  I would get together whatever girls are available on a certain day together ot look at dresses somewhere convenient to them and figure out another date to shop with the other girls based on their availability.  You don;t need all of them together to get the job done.

Good Luck. I couldn’t do it so I just went with each one seperatly.

There’s no way I’d be able to get all of my girls together.  Most of them do live here in the city but their schedules are not at all alike.  The only thing I can suggest is telling them the date and time you’d like to go, let them know its important to you, and ask them to come.  Maybe you can make it into a girls trip, have lunch and bond.  That might be more enticing than just trying on dresses.

It’s tough getting my girls together b/c 2 out of 6 live out of state. So I took 4 to David’s Bridals b/c they are every where and going to have the other 2 girls go there on there own.

I had the hardest time and we are all in San Diego!  You really just need to pick a date and stick to it.  Maybe go a second time with whoever really couldn’t make it the first.  We finally got together on a Tuesday evening last week after a few of us met on Saturday.  Seriously, this was almost the most stressful thing I had to deal with!

By the way…I bought my prom dress ages ago at Gunny Sacks!  Love it!

There was no way I’d be able to get all the girls together.  Two live five hours away, one lives 2 hours on a ferry away, and the other is in Australia.


One weekend two came out, and we ruled out a bunch of stuff.  A couple weeks later another came to town, and I showed her the highlights.  The one in Australia just got shown pictures, and we’re hoping for the best.
