    Hello ladies!! Okay so i have a question. My FI and I are paying for our wedding and we understand how expensive it can get. So i feel my guest pain when it comes to having to get a passport, and an expensive ticket. My question is about my girls dresses. There are some I like at David's but to be honest i think $130 for a dress they will probably never wear again is silly. I wanted teh girls just to go out and find any sun dress since i am getting married in July in PV and i want them to be as comfortable as possible. I have been finding it hard to find just solid teal or aqua deress. so do you think putting them in a white sundress which is a lost easier to find and then making or buying aqua sashes to put around them would look funny.. since the "bride" is only suspose to be in white. I am going to have the GM in tan pants with white sort sleve button ups.

    Pleas let me know what you think or if you have any sugguestions

      i think that is a great idea and very thoughtful and considerate. i also feel funny about making people buy a dress and pay for an airline ticket, etc.

      i may have dresses made for them i still have not decided.

      anyway - the white sundress is great - and then you can buy the sashes so they are all the same!

        Your the bride and if you don't mind them wearing white than i think it's fine. I actually think it would be really cute with an aqua sash. Go for it.

            Great idea! and a splash of color with a sash would be perfect! As long as you dont care that they are in white then go for it!

            There is a beautiful picture some where (sorry, I probably deleted it!) but it's with the bridal party in white with blue sashes. I think it looks BEAUTIFUL!
            Anny had her girls wear white with red sashes (if I'm not mistaken) and I thought that looked so awesome too.
            I really think it'd be fine :)

              I think it will look good. You're the bride, so as long as you don't care that you're not the only one in white, no one else should either!

                OMG I love that idea! Will you let me know what you find? I too have been struggling with the BM dress idea!

                  I think it would look really pretty with all white!

                  Here are the dresses I bought my girls in case you're interested...cheap -only $58 & cute! I bought them in sapphire (like turquoise).
