- Wedding: September 2010
Ok, everyone, I am in desperate need for advice & help on bridesmaid dresses! 🙂 I have 5 bridesmaids ranging in size from 6 – 18. MrRiverRanch & I don’t have a “wedding color” to go off of but have used beige, white, ivory, teal/green, and dusty rose for our wedding invitations thus far. Originally, I told all the girls to find any dress that is knee length and in beige that is a flowy chiffon romantic feel. So far, only one of the girls found a dress like this at a vintage shop. They are all telling me that there isn’t anything out there in beige,tan,caramel color. I then resorted to the Juliet dress in Dusty Shale (matches our mason jars & part of the invitations) but now this dress is on sale & J Crew does not accept returns or exchanges on sale items. The girls want to try it on first obviously to make sure it ships, but we are in MN and the nearest store w/ these dresses in “stock” is Chicago, so that’s not happening. Any suggestions for dresses? PS- They are all wearing brown cowboy boots and don’t want to spend over $100. In fact, they all only want to spend like $50. I have scoured every website in the world it feels like to find something that would work.
PS- Our wedding is outdoors on the banks of 2 rivers, Mr & I are riding up on horseback (but saying our I do’s on the ground), most guests will be sitting on lace covered hay bales, birds & vintage theme (sort of), not too western but just enough touch of it. I grew up the daughter of a horse trainer so including the horses in our wedding was a must! Below is a pic of what the guys attire will look like, except their vests are a bit more of an antique brown in color vs wheat.
this is the color of their actual vests (antique brown by Cripple Creek)
