For our last trip, Bridesmaid AF, AB, Y, S and I met bright and early on a Saturday to tackle three dress shops. Let me tell you, do not do this hungover. I. Was. Tired. And I didn't even have to take dresses on and off constantly.
But the girls were total troopers and we (they) tried on so, so many dresses. It was really great though to see so many different styles on all of the girls. Here's a small collection of the dresses we looked at:
Yeah, like I said, just a "small" assortment. We shopped for about seven hours, and then I went home and contemplated our options. I wanted to look at price, variety, color, and what dress made the girls happy. Picking one option, I called Sister J and asked her to go try this dress on. She did, and gave me the thumbs up. So we had our dress:
Alfred Angelo Style 7141 in Burnt Orange:
We're going to add something to Sister J's dress to make her stand out more, but the ease of everyone wearing the same dress that we all loved really won me over. Each of the girls liked the dress, it's a flattering style on everyone, and it was a really great price.
So bridesmaid dresses have been ordered! They should be in about a month and a half before the wedding, giving the girls plenty of time to have them altered as necessary. I love checking things off my list!
What style of bridesmaid dress did you choose? Did you take all the girls out at once, shop online, or have them go and send you pictures?
