I am doing this and some girls found dresses right away but others are telling me choosing one is totally stressing them out. My only parameters were navy in color and short but not a specific length. I never realized it would be easier for some of them if I just picked whatever I wanted all along, even if it was something they’d probably never wear again. I’m hoping it works out though….

@anne B: That is so cute! Very 50’s retro but I love that idea.

@DreamsDoComeTrue: Yea it kinda sucks, but it’s worth it for the girls who really appreciate the freedom. I told the stressed out ones I will choose for them if they want haha ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a friend who did this but really did pick a different dress for each girl, so that’s always an option.

My BMs in their mis-matched green dresses.  All different styles, fabrics, and greens.

I love all these! I want to do this for my girls, but they are still looking for ones they may like.  I just told them to all have the same designer (so that it’s the same colour green), same length and same fabric. But any style they like! That way it suits all of their unique body shapes.

These dresses are what my girls settled on ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that they are all different but are still cohesive.

I have 5 bridesmaids, only 3 have their dresses already. This is what we have so far! I let them pick any plain black knee length dresses without sleeves, I just gave them guidelines for the formality (like a cocktail dress). I will admit I thought it would be so much easier…but they wanted more and more guidelines, almost like they just wish I would have picked something more specific! At least they all got to pick their price point.

The materials are different, but since it’s black (no variance in shades) I think it will look great!

@MM423:I know what you mean!  I took my girls out shopping and just said to pick their favourite, as long as it’s the same length and colour, and they seemed lost. They kept asking me which one to pick.  

But I love those dresses! Where are they from?

@adnama: Thanks! It’s been kind of a struggle to get everyone to go out and pick something…I wanted the point to be that everyone picked something they could wear again, but it’s making everyone feel like they need to check with me on every little thing because the options are endless ๐Ÿ™‚ The first one is from Nordstroms, I think the brand is called Giulia. The second one is also from Nordstroms, it’s Monique Lhullier bridesmaids. The last one is a David’s Bridal bridesmaid dress.

I was also surprised to find that people *chose* to buy bridesmaids dresses when they didn’t have to! I guess some had trouble finding ones that were plain enough and looked wedding-appropriate.
