    I'm looking for aqua bridesmaid dresses. I will have 3, I plan on buying their dresses for them. I am debating between holding out until the spring collections come out and finding something at a department store (Macy's, Nordstrom, Dillards). The dresses they have out now are darker shades of blue. I haven't found anything at jcrew.com or ann taylor celebrations that I like.
    Or I go with a bridesmaid dress. Alfred Angelo and David's don't have the exact color that I am going for. Mori Lee has some dresses in turquoise that I like.

    Then I came across Charsa.com. Beautiful dresses, but expensive!

    I think I am going to try and go to the bridal shop near me that carries the line to see the colors in person and some sample dresses.
    What do you think?

        I like the Mori lee ones actually better than the other ones that are more expensive. I can't decide between the two either. I like them both! (even though the shoe on the strapless is a disaster- but I know that doesn't matter) I guess you'll know when you see them in person. They are both super cute!

          I will agree now is not the time to find the color you want. I bought my girls dresses in Feb from Davids in Pool... I had a lastminute add on to my party a few weeks ago with only 30 days left today ... and I couldn't get her the dress anywhere even if it was shipped from another store. So my new girl is ending up in Watermelon. Driving 2 hrs today to go and pick up her dress at the store.

          BTW I LUV both Mori Lees!!

                    Hi! Just wanted you to know that Jim Hjelm has the most beautiful shades of blue I have ever seen! I went with the "teal" but it looks more like an ocean blue to me. There were like 20 different styles to chose from as well, which I am doing all different styles but same chiffon fabric. I also waited until the bridal shop had a % sale, which they do every other month or so.
