    Good Afternoon Ladies,

     

    So bridesmaid dress shopping has been tough on me.. I can't seem to find the colors that match our color scheme or a style I even like. I also hate asking the girls to pay for an expensive dress they will probably never wear again plus pay a ton of money to attend the wedding in Punta Cana.... And then I saw this dress a few weeks ago while shopping and as soon as I saw it, it reminded me of our beachy wedding...(ignore me in the 1st picture, I clearly tried on one that was a tad to small for me)  I went shopping today during my lunch break and happened to walk in the store again and there were these dresses again..  they only came in sizes from S-XL so we bought all they had 3S, 1M, 1L, 1XL.. for the low cost of the dress, my mom said she would buy the dresses for all of the girls.. Fingers crossed they fit my girls and look good on all of them.. And if they are too big I'm hoping they can be taken in.. What do you leadies think of these dresses to match our pink and orange wedding?

      They are cute..I like them but from what I have seen from your color scheme the look too coralish! Plus they are a tad too short for my liking but thats just me!

         I too thought they were a little coralish.. :o((( but all the orange dresses I've seen are totally off from the orange flowers I've bought. Oh yea I agree about the shortness on me.. It was too small, I needed a L and that one is a M.. None of my girls have DD's like me, so they wont be as short.. I'm going to have one of my b.maids try it on tonight and see how it looks next to all the DIY's in orange and pink that I have completed...   Ugh... It's tough to find dresses when you have 4 b.maids sized 0-4 and one with a muscular build. Pink/Orange is tougher than I thought.

          I would have to agree. It is a very pretty dress but the color is a little off. Don't give up on your BM dress search! Let's us know it goes tonight. :)

            I can sympathize! Our BM dresses are freaking teal/tourquoise, not easy to find! But I think if ths dress is close to your linen colors, it will blend nicely! Good luck. Hey it looks cute on you:)

              Aww. I wanted torq in our color scheme originally, I too noticed those were tough to find! I haven't bought any linens thus far. Only the raffia fans wrapped in orange ribbon and I plan to purchase pink sashes.:o( I knew it was probably to good to be true...   I have a feeling these may not match and will all be returned.. Except mine in a L, bc it's super cute to wear while at our DW week. :o)

                  +1...keep looking, verything for the spring/summer season is going on sale right now.  I thought you had went with the convertible dresses, otherwise I would have kept my eyes open for you.

                       I loved the convertibles.. But the color samples were off.. :o( and my girls said they didn't have the tata's to make them look good on themselves. :o(   There is an Alfred Angelo floating around that I love.. It's pink with and orange sash built in, but I'm thinking they are 180-190.. and I hate to ask the girls to pay that since they will be spending all the money on travel and hotel expenses.
