I agree, your bridesmaids should not be in formal dresses for a cocktail party atmosphere. I think these dresses work nice, I would do short dresses, not long.

Have you considered Davids Bridal? I picked the color and the length (short) and let them pick the dress. It worked out well because they all feel comfortable in their dress

@bummbledbee:  The idea of that dress is cool, but I’m not crazy about the fabric. It may be unflattering on someone who is a little overweight. Have you checked out Alfred Sung’s dresses? I think that there is a ton of good options style wise and they are super cute!

I’m not sure if it fits your budget, but i loove the dresses form Vera Wang collection at David’s Bridal. And they definately have a cocktail party feeling about them

i’m really not a fan of convertible dresses. i think they’re clingy and can hold onto boobs weird (i know that sounds awkward, but its the truth). plus, they seem like beachwear to me.

you might just have to put your foot down and tell your friends to shove it. you’ve been more than accomodating, and they just need to suck it up and pick a dress that goes in line with your style!

i think that pikcing a color and fabric from a particular designer would be a great way to go. good luck!

@bummbledbee:  Honestly, you have been MORE than accomodating to your girls tastes and opinions, but it’s not their wedding. Getting women to agree on 1 dress can be impossible sometimes, especially because it sounds like you have a very vocal group. That is why the bride gets to decide 🙂 Keep in mind your girls body type, and pick a dress. Dont ask for their thoughts, just pick it and tell them this is the dress.
