@ozpeony:  Haha, good choice Tongue Out

Here are a couple of pictures I took with two of my BMs this weekend.

I’m having four BMs and they are all wearing the same dress. Excuse the wrinkles in the dresses, I think they have been sitting in a bag for the past six months.

I have opted for short dresses for bridesmaids.  They are wearing Lela Rose (LR 123) in an ivory gauze.

I don’t think the photo does it justice, but the fabric is nice and it looks great in person.  I often found when searching for dresses that the ones I had liked best in photos, I didn’t in person, and vice versa.

@Bruuk:  Those are so pretty! I agree about dresses usually looking different in real life than in photos. They often also look drastically different on the hanger than on a real person.

I didn’t even look twice at my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress the first time I saw it on the hanger in the store, and only brought it into the fitting room for one of my BMs to try “just because”. I ended up buying four of them 30 minutes later!

Gemma brides,

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I are having a hard time picking between two dresses! They would both be in a light purple (if you look close you can see the color purple on the dress to her right in both images) but they are very different silhouettes. Which do you prefer with the Gemma?

@Layla515:  do you remember the designer of these dresses? I like that purple color in the back and am looking for something similar.

@Ctobin:  I’m pretty sure they’re Monique Lhuillier (well, the pink and purple ones at least…not sure about the red).
