When it came to the dresses for my girls, I knew I wanted all 7 (yes, I said 7) of them to feel comfortable and I wanted the dress to fit their budget. I also faced the challenge of bridesmaids literally, all over the country. (I have one in Phoenix, one in Chicago, one in Minneapolis, one in Kansas City, two in Des Moines and one where I live.) I also loved the idea of different dresses, but I wanted some consistency. So, I gave the girls the color "Lapis" from David's Bridal and am going to let them pick any knee length or tea length dress that they desire. That way, each of them will be able to pick a dress they feel comfortable in and maybe (fingers crossed) be able to wear again.
Here are some examples:
Aren't they adorable? I would be totally lying if I said I hadn't been trying to think of a reason why I need to get one of these dresses...
I am a twenty-somthing girl living in the mid-west with my fiance, a very energetic chocolate lab and a psycho cat. I love to write and I love to plan, and those traits together translate into the Cheap Chic Bride blog. We are set to get married in August 2011, follow me and see how we plan a fabulous wedding on a small budget in the mid-west.
I would love to hear about your wedding and what you did to save money, personalize it, and just make it fabulous! I would also like to hear any ideas on topics that you might have. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
