Help me find this bridesmaid dress- Maggie London

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I wouldn't ask her to be in the wedding either. Especially since she lives out of state and you guys haven't been friends for awhile... after her wedding will she slip off the radar again?

I think the honor of bridesmaid should be held for those who will be there through thick and thin no matter what.

Long story, but she has been.. we've been friends since 8th grade. (18 years!) Apparently she was going through a huge depression and rather than call me, she completely shut me out.. she was dating a new guy and I took it the wrong way.. plus I really needed her at the time. I got tired of her not calling me back/answering emails after about 4 months so when out of the blue she writes me a long letter like nothing was wrong.. I told her to piss off.. She just recently got up the courage to contact me again and explain everything, hence the friendship is back on track.

I just don't want to regret it.. you know what I mean? I don't want to look back in another 18 years and hate that I didn't ask her because of a stupid dress.. (and other financial obligations, but mostly because of the dress.)

all three girls really like the dress.. it's flowy on the bottom so it will hide lumps and bumps and they wanted to be able to wear a bra so they went with the halter.

I think I'm going to stick with the three and call it a day.... I just don't want to disappoint her. I know my matron of honor wants to be the one to "take care of me" because she already mentioned a bride's day kit and was really excited about it so I don't want to give the new girl another job, like an attendant.
Sorry I am late on this, but I was also going to tell you to just leave her out. She has no idea you were going to ask her. If you get a dress, than go a head, if not, no worries, she will still be a big part of your day. Give her a special job, like saying a few words or something.

how close are the blues in the dresses we found online - did you ask the Nordstroms people (not sure they'd know)?

is there a real similar dress in a matching color? not many people would notice (or care!) if there slight differences in the style. it's probably easier to hide a style difference over a color difference.

maybe 1 girl could get a dress to match the new girl - then it would be 2 in the "old" dress and 2 in the "new" dress.

girls often tend to exagerate their size ("oh my god, i am sooo fat!")- maybe she is not really that big? can she try on teh dress and then you go from there if it doesn't fit?
any of these an option? (i love quoting myself!)

lol.. didn't mean to ignore your question. The other colored dresses aren't going to work, they're too light and I don't want her to stick out in any way.. if anyone should stick out it would be my MOH.

I could ask one of the other girls to wear a different style dress, but they all really love it the dress they picked..

why did I decide to have bridesmaids again? lol

I think I'm going to wait until my friend's wedding is over and then maybe talk to her about it? I'll bring the dress..maybe she did exaggerate about her weight, but I really don't think so.

what about 1 of the other girls getting a slightly different dress? then it would be 2 and 2! or just take the dress you have with you shopping so you can match the color - it seems like there are a lot of similar style dresses - that would be ok, right?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
