- Wedding: October 2011
Help Help Help. I have Bridesmaid drama, but I’ll do my best to keep it simple.
Basically, I have 3 bridesmaids, two are Size 2, my sister is size 18/20. All live in different places in the country, not by me. My sister is very self-conscious, and even with prodding, explaining the urgency of the situation and occasional yelling from my mom and I for 3 months, she didn’t go get sized for a dress until this week. (My father had to get involved, yah, seriously.) The point of all of this (besides a much needed rant about my sister) is even though, I had picked out a Dessy dress I loved, it’s too late now to order because of lead times. I really am pretty pissed at my sister for refusing to get fitted eventhough, I explained the situation. When I first started wedding planning, I wanted to buy a summer flowy white/ivory/champagne dress off the rack; so I’m back in that place again.
I need help finding a bridesmaid dress that I can get in time for my Oct 8th wedding. I have a clear idea of what I’m looking for, I just cannot find it, in large enough sizes. And since most bridesmaids dress lines are out of the question now due to lead times, I really don’t know how to progress forward.
This link is what I have pictured in my head, flowy white/ivory dresses with tan/medium brown cowboy boots (I’m going to buy the cowboy boots as a Bridesmaid present, so they match):
Although, I’ve really been drawn to Miranda Lamberts wedding, too. I’m willing to go with light-washed out mismatched florals. Eventhough I can find hundreds of regular sized lightly colored floral dresses, finding a plus size one is really hard.
On top of this, my sister and mom tell me that I suck at picking out dresses for big girls. I suggested custom made dresses on Etsy, and my sister says they are all ugly and on baby sized models. Grrr… I feel they don’t realize I have spent all-day for 3 days straight looking at dresses and can’t find anything.
Can you give me some ideas on how to stick with the theme I like in the above two links, and be able to find a dress or several mismatched dresses for my girls? Can you send me some links to dresses that will work and come in big sizes?
Thank you so much,
Stressed out Bride!!!
