    I know we've heard this a million times before, but I feel as though I need to vent...
    I have 4 bridesmaids with varying financial status (ie two make a boat load of money and two are broke)
    So I decided that I don't care what they wear, but I do want everyone in the same color so I chose white because there's really only one shade of white and then everyone can pick out their own dress. I thought this was was going to make it so easy and that the two with money can go and pick out a dress at JCrew or banana republic and the other two can find something at Old Navy or TJ Max (both of which i love). Well, I'm already hearing complaints!!!
    No one thinks they'll be able to find white dresses. And one of them actually had the nerve to send me an e-mail that said if I really want them to buy dresses they'll be able to wear again then I shouldn't have picked white because besides my first holy communion and sorority induction when have I ever worn an all white dress? UGH!
    I was considering changing my color and then my mom found out and told me to stick to my guns. I 'm half tempted to tell all four of them that my mom is coordinating the clothes and they have to go through her...that'll teach them. :-)
    I haven't been shopping in forever so I have really no idea if it's going to be challenging to find white dresses outside of a bridal store. But it shouldn't be that difficult, right?
    Okay, I feel a little better now that i got that out of my system

      Solid white dresses are a little hard to find... I needed one not to long ago. A lot of them have other colors on them. But if they are going for the beach sundress look it should be easy. That was the only kind of white dress I could find. It was at a surf shop.

        Old Navy has a bunch of all white stuff (including dresses) right now. I noticed it yesterday when I walked by the store... I didn't go in, so I'm not sure what they look like though.

            No way not hard to find at all.... and like your mom said- stick to your guns. What about white house black makret. They always have really cute stuff there!

              I was having the same problem, Stick to your guns!!! They can buy a white dress this summer and have before the wedding. One of my bm was not with the white dress, but oh well it's my wedding.

                This is one reason, I disolve the wedding party. If they show up that's cool, if not the wedding will going on w/o them.

                  Geez, what is up with BMs complaining about dresses when the bride is nice enough to just pick a color. I've always wished I was in a wedding where the bride let me pick my own dress. There are websites where you can sort by color. It can't be that hard to find a white dress.

                  I hope I've never been that much of a PITA about a BM dress.

                    Nordstrom is one that offers a sort by color option. Have them look there. I wouldn't think it would be too difficult. I've seen pictures of all white wedding parties before- if they can do it, your girls can too.
