Bridesmaids dresses.. HELP

Recommended Posts

So I don't want to put my bridesmaids in real bridemaids dress.. I wanted to do a sundress or something from a Macys but I am having trouble envisoning this in my pictures. My wedding dress is not formal .. Truth be told it's a white bridesmaids dress.

 

The issue is I have one bridesmaid that is model skinny, one that plans to be pregnant, and one that is on the heavy side. In normal circumstances I would pick a designer and color and say have at it.. but since I am not doing a tradional bridesmaids dress I can't do that.

 

I have not a clue what to do. What have others done?

I was actually considering doing that as welll; as my BM's are so varied in their body shapes and I wanted to keep things in formal. Well, fast forward 6 months and 3 annoying/horrid shopping trips and I gave up on that idea. I basically bought my dress and let them loose in RK Bridal; told them to figure out what they all like and show me. Luckily, they all agreed on something. Granted it was more formal than what I would've chosen but it was easier that way because i was done dealing with it.

 

So.. sorry for the rant! .. anyway, I would just take them all shopping but have a color and fabric in mind that you like so you can give them direction. You don't want a free for all.

 

Good Luck!!!!

Something with an empire waist or halter dress would work. My MOH (I don't have BM's) is wearing a halter and she is real curvy. It would work for someone who is pregnant as well. As for the stick thin girl it would work as long as she gets the right size. Good luck!!

I am doing the same thing. All my (3) bridesmaids are in Ohio and I'm in Texas. Next weekend I am going back and we are hitting up the dept. stores. It looks like the spring stuff is now coming out and I'm hoping we can all find something and get it over with!

Maybe just give them a sample of fabric in a color you love or tell them to find a shade of blue (or whatever color you want) and tell them to find a simple sundress that they love. Since you aren't going traditional it would work perfectly. I have seen some pictures when girls do this and it looks really cool too.

 

Good luck!

 

PS Check out places in the malls too, I got my BM dresses for $16.50 each at Forever 21.
