I wanted to provide an update on my search for bridesmaid dresses for my girls. I have been searching every online clothing store and dress company that I can think of. Unfortunately a lot of online retailers like J.Crew and Ann Taylor Loft only have their winter color bridesmaid dresses out currently. I did get lucky and found a beautiful coral dress at Nordstrom.com and on sale for $80! Loren and I purchased the dress on a whim and when it arrived it fit her perfectly and is just as beautiful in person. Score! With one dress down I began thinking about the colors I would like the other bridesmaids to wear. My first thought was to have everyone in a different color from our wedding palette but feared that would look too rainbowie (hehe this fake word makes me laugh). After this realization, I decided that I need to stick to one side of the spectrum and with Loren’s dress being the perfect coral color and having a fall wedding, my decision was pretty much made for me. Phew, one less decision to make. ;)
So far this is what I am thinking in terms of colors for each girl:
Loren’s dress has a big ol’ check mark because we have purchased and decided on hers. Yay! The other dresses are simply place markers to represent the colors I like as they haven’t tried on or bought any of the dresses yet. The dress for Brianna is beautiful and I wish I could put a big check next to it too. Sadly, when I found the dress on jcrew.com her size was already sold out and two days later the dress was unavailable all together. Bummer. I love how this dress would pull together all the colors and give a subtle tie in to her being the flower girl. The dress was from J.Crew’s spring/summer line so perhaps something similar will be available in a few months. As for now the search continues and I will post updates as we make final decisions.
