    I have one of those american apparel dresses! They are pretty great on the beach, does it look fancy enough? I think I want something in a chiffon-like material, the aa dresses are cotton.  In the pictures it would still look great, and i love the idea that they could tie them up in different ways.

      This is the debate I am having with myself!!!! They would totally be wearable again for the girls BUT are they dressy enough.  Our wedding is going to be pretty casual but at the same time I don't want it to look bad in pictures.  The VS ones my friend had were almost shiny so they looked a lot more dressy.  Etsy has a few sellers who make them as well in "fancier" materials.  

       

      I can sew so I MAY attempt one myself... found a pattern thats pretty straightforward but I don't know.....

        You can always fancy it up with accessories. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with a black dress which in pictures I think will look dressy enough regardless of material. I just want something flowy.

        The cotton/jersey material of the AA dresses could be dressed up with sparkly jewelry and hair accessories or flowers in their hair.. or some sparkly flip flops! :) And they'll have the bouquets (if you plan to do that) which would dress it up as well.

         

        Good on you for being able to sew!! I would love to learn!

          I want my bridesmaids to pick their style dress and this looks like an awesome website, but I want to hear from someone who knows about them :)

            I love the idea of black and ivory on the beach...and if it's too much for your girls maybe a black sash.... i saw a really pretty pearl necklace with a black ribbon on etsy today I thought was stunning....

            but as for where to buy I stumbled across this website I really like for bridesmaids dresses (and dresses for me) - some are kinda short depeneding on the body type your trying to fit but they have a range of prices...it's abc.bmp123.jpg

              Etsy of course, but any women's clothing shop will do. I think many brides today are ok with their maids wearing clothing that can be worn again and don't scream "brides maid dress". It doesn't have to be designer. You could pick your favorite shop and just give your girls free reign to get whatever color or style, etc. It's your day!

                We are looking for cobalt blue dresses as well, and are having a heck of a time finding them! I found this one for $110 at Tristan and America, we're going to try it on tonight (the belt is optional). Fingers crossed!
