@emilyekk: I wore the same dress and here were my bridesmaids dresses…

I felt like they went very well with the dress

Maybe not vintage like you want but they go well and you can make everything else vintage.

I think if you keep the bridesmaids dress simple, a little poof won’t outshine your dress at all!

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding where the bride wore the designer version of your dress and the BMs wore this Alfred Angelo dress.  We hated the dress we had to wear because it was very poorly made however it did complement the bride’s dress nicely.  

I agree with your mom.  Go with straight dresses for the BMs so it’s not a ton of poof!  I had a very poofy dress and had my BMs in straight dresses.  My dress stood out great.

Alfred Sung makes a ton of dresses that fit that style and come in all colors! But I do have to add that the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses really aren’t your moms’ call. Ours had a bubble hem, but I never asked her opinion, just said, “Hey mom, the bridesmaids and I found a dress we all love and ordered them!” and that was that.

A bunch of links but I think this is my fave (and they make junior Bridesmaid or Best Man versions!) – sorry it’s huge!:

Somewhere on Jasmine’s site they mention that they can make any dress in any fabric (something along those lines) but you have to talk to a bridal shop that offers them.

Junior bridesmaids will make it a bit trickier.

@jpalm13: They can, but there’s a charge depending on what type of fabric it is. For awhile, we thought they wouldn’t have my color in the Jasmine Bridesmaid or Best Man dress we picked out, so we looked at switching fabrics. For my girls, it would have been a $30 charge, but it was moving from a regular taffeta to like, a luxe taffeta or something.

@emilyekk: Yay, I’m glad you like it! =)  That dress immediately popped into my head when I saw your post.

And crap, apparantely they don’t make junior bm ones that exactly match that dress, but they have some that are very close but a bit younger for the 9 and 10 year old. I think this one would probably be the best fit:

@Wonderstruck: I agree with the Alfred Sung dresses, that whole line has such a great Mad Men feel.

They’re available on Weddington Way, so you can set up a styleboard beforehand if you’re thinking about mixing up the various vintage-inspired styles and colors.
