What about giving your girls your specifications and let them choose a dress themselves. That way you wouldn’t have to stress about finding a dress the suits everyone and they could pick something that is within their budget.

Alfred Angelo has a lot of different styles and colors and is fairly inexpensive (my sisters’ dresses came out to $162 each with tax and shipping) but I’m not sure if they have cotton type dresses. A-line is supposed to be a silhouette that looks well on everyone. I picked out an A-line style for my sisters and one is 5’4″ size 2 the other is 5’6″ size 24 and it looked great on both.

Maybe you can find a designer you like so the color can be the same and they can pick out the style that works well on them.

@Snowy414:You might like this, keep in mind the flower detail on this dress comes attached to a real thin (maybe 1/2 in. wide) band that can be removed. They have several colors to choose from and it can be dressed up or down.

You might be able to find this dress at a local store to see in person, but you can order from http://www.toastbridal.com at their online store. It’s a real bridal shop in PA, but they have an online store and their prices are quite a bit cheaper. They also give you the option to add extra length for tall BM’s at an extra cost. Their shipping costs are reasonable (see their FAQ’s) and they respond quickly to email questions. I’m getting 3 of these dresses, 2 which are extra lenth, after shipping it evens out to $158/dress.

I suggest talking to your BMs. See if there is something they absolutely don’t want and then what they loove. This way you can narrow all their “oh I hope she doesn’t make me wear that” thoughts before you show them a dress so they don’t feel like they will hurt your feelings.

ETA: I think it’s adorable how concerned you are for your BMs comfort 🙂

I also think that it is cute that you care so much!

 

This is cotton and A-line (which people say is pretty flattering on everyone).  I Also think halters work well for a lot of people and it comes in a lot of colors…

they are the same dress, one is the manufacturer and the other is a retailer so you get an idea on price.
