Well last night marked another milestone. The bridesmaid dresses are officially ordered. I know this is something most bridesmaids dread doing. They don't want to spend the money on a dress they wear once. Usually they think the dresses are hideous. I get it- but you still gotta do it. Luckily my bridesmaids are awesome and great sports!
I did my dress picking a little differently. Since we had to look for dresses in summer- it was IMPOSSIBLE to get all of my bridesmaids schedules to line up to look for dresses. I also knew the dress I wanted them to wear. I had worn one similar in a wedding I stood up in and it flattered EVERYONE. We had all sizes in our wedding party, from a size 4 to a pregnant girl- so I was confident everyone would feel comfortable. I also am going with black dresses, again, it will flatter everyone. So I sent all of the girls two different dresses, similar styles to vote on. I figured that would be easier than everyone giving up a Saturday to go looking for one dress. Luckily all of the girls voted on the same dress. I then gave them 6 weeks to order the dresses, and anyone who wanted to go get measured, I would go with them. Well last night, I grabbed dinner with two of my bridesmaids, and ordered the last of the dresses :) I am so excited. My flower girl is also wearing the same dress. She is going to look adorable- and all of my girls are going to be gorgeous! Anyways- here is the dress. They will be all black with a hot pink sash (aka watermelon.) Hope you guys like!
