- Wedding: September 2012
Okay so in narrowing my focus I’ve become more confused!
I need your votes ladies and have made up some snap shots resembling our wedding party to see it on a grand scale and really vote for the best looking.
Once again our venue is the Eternity:
and our theme is classy nautical with this inspiration:
The following dresses are Ann Taylor lovelies that I like because of quality for price but am having certain issues as follows:
Option 1: The Champagne Sweetheart Dress
I LOVE this sweetheart neckline and originally wanted this color to go with our theme but would have to take the word of one Bridesmaid or Best Man who is a size 18 and TRUST that she will get into the 14 that is left to order. Also I’d have to get my size 4 Bridesmaid or Best Man an 8P and alter it down which is just a little more money for her but that’s not as big of an issue as trusting my sis-in-law to lose 3 or so inches to fit into the 14…
Option 2: The Nile Blue Sweetheart Dress
I still LOVE the sweetheart neckline and this bluey-teal color was something I wanted but that was BEFORE Fiance picked his vest combo and I’m not sure it goes very well. This dress is available in all the sizes we need (No alterations necessary) and is very affordable… but does it go with our theme very well and is it classic enough? It is an summer evening wedding on a yacht, I am a fun-loving girl and don’t really mind having a little fun with the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in this color but I’m a little insecure about the combo…
Option 3: The “Thyme” Pocket Dress
I’m a little bummed that it’s not sweetheart but this dress has pockets, would be flattering on all shapes, comes in all the sizes needed and is also cost effective. Its a little more beige than the champagne but I think its still a nice neutral and wouldn’t wash anyone out like some of my BMs fear champagne would… I am unsure if its TOO dark of a beige to go with our theme…? My sister says it’s better than the Champagne because it doesn’t luster the way the champagne does and so it won’t take any shine away from me… This dress is 100% silk and so is my dress.
Option 4: The Silver Pocket Dress
Same as “Thyme” above but in Silver. Like it for all the above reasons again and just still on the fence if Silver goes with the chosen Groomsmen vest/suit combo? Not really super excited about this dress color but if it works best, that’s the best option.
Your votes, comments & input would be lovely, my dears!
Please help me decide!
PS- There is also this option from Target that comes in all the sizes, is made of “Shantung” and is one shoulder so its cute but I’m just a little weary of the fabric/tailoring because… well… its Target, ya know?
