helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

While I was perusing Bluefly the other day I noticed they now have a ‘Weddings‘ section- or maybe I've just missed it in the past. Either way, I found some pretty designer dresses on the cheap that would work with my color scheme… Bridesmaids… are you paying attention? 🙂 When I hung out with B this weekend she asked me about the dresses and I told her the ‘guidelines'… I really feel like a HUGE tool bag by setting guidelines but I figure at least I'm not dictating exactly what they should wear? I really am open to anything as long as it's not full length. It can have pattern, lace, ruffles, whateva! As long as it's in the color scheme. I just want them all to pick a dress they actually like and feel comfortable in! 🙂 So here's some examples of what I found on Bluefly- which would be fabulous considering these are all ‘designer' dresses for under $250.

  • Very cute! I am leaning towards giving some guidelines and a color as well, and letting them wear whatever dress/shoes/hair they want. My groom doesn’t want to wear a tie, so keeping it informal and fun is the direction we’re taking. I must admit, though, that some of the super-cute off-the-rack print dresses have caught my eye. The thought of all my friends in cute prints next to me is kind of appealing. So I may end up going that route. All I know for sure is that I won’t be ordering a bunch of “bridesmaid” dresses from a bridal salon, waiting months for them to come in, and then forcing my friends to endure numerous alteration and fitting appointments. What a hassle!

  • I love all these colors. I haven’t even started bridesmaid dress shopping, but I am hoping to find 2-3 styles and letting everyone pick what they want.

  • If I were your bridesmaid, I would, #1 hug you and then #2 chose the third dress in the 2nd row.

    Good choices!
