    So I am 90% of my dress. I just have to go back and try it on and order it. :)

    Here it is!!!

    The great thing about it (other than the fact that I'm in love with it!) is that I'm really short (about 5'2") and so it is completely different than on this model (duh!). What I mean is that instead of hanging to the ground, the lace in back actually ends up being a sweep train and it goes a bit lower in front too, showing less leg.
    I won't have to hem it at all! Woohoo!

    I think that will be a first.

    Now, to find the BM dresses... my 2 sisters will be my BMs and my mother has offered to sew the dresses. Here are some options that I've come up with.
    My concern is obviously that I don't want their dresses to be too formal or evening, because the wedding is at 3:30 and my dress is a little less formal. Also, we'll be barefoot on the beach :)

    What do you think of the following options? Are they too dressy?

    My favorite, but I don't think it really goes with my dress:

            Your dress is beautiful! It's been on my "to try on" list since I saw it on a website a few months ago. I really like your ideas for the dresses too. They're all nice, but I really like the 2nd one!

              Thanks! I can't wait to order it and get some pics of me in it :)

              The BM dresses are:
              1 and 2: from After 6/Dessy Collection
              3: Watters and Watters
              4: Raylia Designs.

              Oh and my dress is Alfred Sung Destination collection :) And it's under $500!
              It's really pretty - not lacy looking like the picture, but more composed of all sorts of little pearls and beads, etc. It's fairly heavy, but extremely easy to get into and wear. It just zips up the back. I think I might have to pretend to need help getting into it. LOL!

                your dress is very pretty, nice choice indeed!! For the BMs, I like 1 and 2, but 2 may be the better option (IMO). :)

                  Your dress is so sweet. The bridesmaids dresses are are really pretty too. You might want to check out the J Crew website in their bridal section. They have some nice options in the pink colour you have shown that area a good in between style (not too dressy but still really pretty).

                      I was thinking of that dress also but I think with your height it will look even better. I like the 2nd BM dress the best.
