     I think if you like the teal, then you should keep shopping for it.. I was talking to my boss today, and she said I should probably find a fabric I like in my color and just have a good seemstress make them. But then again... Not sure what kind of cost that would be.

      Okay, so the dresses are def off.. Even my dad noticed... lol..  It's more of a mix between the two colors.. Seems like I need a toned down fushia or a lighter shade of orange.. Such as Davids Bridal Orange as that is where the orange sash in the picture is from.. I bought a sample of the fushia satin chair sash from tableclothfactory.com.. and the colors is more bright and purply. :o(

        I love the color! Even if it's not THE perfect shade it still in the same family and would look nice with a pink/orange bouquet. As for the length I have to agree it's a lil short especially for a beach wedding. I would be worried that the wind would pick up those light fabric dresses and show more of the girls than planned. Honestly, I was like you I didn't want my BM to spend a ton of money so we hit up Macy's and Nordstroms cuz it's homecoming season and have a ton of dresses. I say if you're not IN LOVE with them don't waste your money or the girls money. Good luck to you and I have faith you'll find decent dresses at a great price.

        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?

          It looks a bit lighter, but I personally think it could work! But then again if your dad noticed lol, must be an obvious difference...I'm gonna keep on the hunt for our teal BM dress. We still have a while!

            Thanks Ladies for all the advice. I have decided to look around for more dresses in either orange or pink to match our colors.. But still keeping one for myself. :o)

             

            I have posted the dresses for sale on here if anyone is interested. What doesn't sale will be returned to the store.

                      Aahhh you just ruined me... Bikinis are my obsession (I don't know why).  I've already purchased 4 in the past two months and have another 3 on the to get list.
