    @janetsnakehole:  First of all, I think YOUR dress is beautiful!!  I think you should just do whatever you envision.  If that is the Bill Levcoff, do it!!  But I do like the DB one too.  The Target one, I LOVE but I don’t know if it really “goes” with your dress.

    I love the black lace dress from Target! But it’s quite different from your original BL choice… I think ultimately it’s up to you to decide which fits your vision. If you are able to pay for the BL dresses up front yourself, maybe your girls can arrange some sort of ‘payment plan’ with you, where they pay you in increments so it’s not such a heavy hit to the wallet all at once.

    Good luck!

    Because your friends are broke, I’d go with the Target dress. It’s cute, it’s pretty affordable. I feel like if you order the original dress and plan to be reimbursed, you run the risk of being in a very akward situation where your friends owe you money (and may not be able to when you need the money back).

    I would check out a few more non bridal stores for better deals. They have gorgeous dresses at Modcloth. Com which is where I got my bms dresses for $50 each. They were so affordable that I could pay for them for my girls although I only have two so jo big expense. They may not look as bridesmaidsy but maybe you ll find one you like 🙂

    I like them all, The only concern I would have is the length of the target one, I don’t like dreses too short and they always fit differently in real life, take your girls and try them on, it if works that is awesome!

    What if each girl just got a black dress the she likes, as long as they are all the same length I think it will look nice together in a garden setting.

    I’ve been having the same issue with my girls. We decided on Bill Levkoff and color, but I wanted them to pick a style in chiffon that they liked, needless to say, it’s been hard to get them to go try stuff on and commit to a dress at all. If I wasn’t pushing the issue of the deadline nothing would get done. If you want uniformity, then do the target dress, it soounds like a happy medium.

    @janetsnakehole:  Love you dress and I love that Target dress. I would have bought one myself when it was out but they didn’t have my size.

    I think it’s important to have their dress kind of match yours. I don’t mean matchy-match, but just not clash. Unfortunately I think the first 2 dresses styles are so different that it would be a little strange.

    I do love the other 2 dresses, though. Our BM’s are similar to the Bill Levkoff ones, but in mint and minus the flowers. They’re flowy and breezy, which goes well with my style of wedding dress.

    Good luck!

    If they can’t afford the dress, go with something cheaper. It’s your wedding, but they are your friends and their well being is more important then the right shade of mint. The Target dress is very cute, so I would either select that one or go with a cheaper option if you want colour:
