I truly want the girls to feel comfortable in their dresses, so I’m just going to have them pick out their own black dress…with a few friendly guidelines, of course. Here’s my inspiration photo

JoonBee–what a shame! that is an AWESOME dress! you should point out that it would still be awesome if it were shortened to knee-length or so…i would wear that dress many times once it was shortened! perfect for parties 🙂
i just started looking at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses because i think i just decided on colors. i’m going for ink/navy (like in the jim hjelm dresses on the previous page, GORGEOUS, i love jim hjelm Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!!!) for my Maid/Matron of Honor and other bridesmaid and the two ring bearers (who will be 8-yr-old girls), and then a deep, saturated lavender for the JR bridesmaid (age 14) and flower girls (three of them, ages 3-6) . i’m worried about finding the right shade of lavender…it HAS to be this shade, lol. i don’t like so many of the lavender Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses i see! i might end up paying for the dresses to be custom-dyed in addition to paying chunks for the dresses themselves (since i’m going to undoubtedly be asking them to buy dresses outside of their price range, i’ve decided to pick up a large part of the tab). i’m with the previous poster who said the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are going to take more effort than my wedding dress! ugh, haha.

We picked mine out yesterday! After much trying on and little success, my mother and I decided to make them! This is the pattern I picked up. They will be black satin with red crinoline and shoes.

Great thread. I love seeing everyone else’s dresses. I’ve ordered this Bari Jay (style 768) in a chocolate brown. It’s not available in that color online, but I was able to order that directly from the bridal store:

Mine will be wearing this dress in “quarry”. Otherwise known as grey.

@beachbride and @ sulli301 those are my bridesmaid dresses too! We are getting them in Truffle. If I weren’t so picture posting challenged, I would show you the color!
I think this dress is so classic and elegant, and most importantly is very figure flattering on many shapes…even though my Maid/Matron of Honor hates it, I LOVE IT! And my poor Maid/Matron of Honor will probably just end up picking a different dress.
@Sulli301, what dress are you pairing this with??
