      Looks like I may do it in December.. So, I have time to work on myself. :o)  Do you mind me asking how much your session will cost?  I had a friend that got into photography and I was his ginnypig a while back, he has done some amazing things now and said he would do my shoot for a plane ticket from Chicago to Alabama.. And I'm wondering if it's a good deal.

       

      Sorry Im just seeing this..I'm not paying for it :) haha Our photographer did our e-shoot, and we are bringing her and her assistant with us to Mexico so she's became kind of a friend. Plus I told her I didnt want it free, so I offered my professional tax services to her. So I get a boudoir shoot, she gets her personal and business taxes done by me! Kinda works out!  I would def hire him esp if the ticket is cheap..it would've cost $175 plus $50 for the rights to the photos..but I have rights to ours bc there the same rights from our e-shoot!

          Im not sure.. they used to sale these at Davids Bridal.. What is your colors?   They have a ton of options if you aren't looking for an orange dress.. lol..

          Google image search bridesmaid dresses.. to see if can see a party with sizes ranging from 00-22.. That's what I did and found this dress. :o)  I'm needing 00-14 I'm guessing on the 14 could be larger or smaller.

            Thank You!! Only problem is........ Davids Bridal no longer makes or sales this dress! :o(   I'm finding 6's all day long on Ebay.. I'm wondering if they can be altered to a 4 or smaller.. shouldn't be an issue, but I need to go find a good seemstres and ask. I LOVE this dress, and it's our exact color orange!!

              Aww... Soo cute! It def has that beachy feel. I wanted that material!  But the watermelon color is off from our colors. :o( And nothing seems to come in orange. :o(

                The dress is pretty. Worse comes to worse, you can look for the fabric color and get it made, but working w/ a good seamstress would work too. That's what I'm doing for my bridesmaids. I asked them to look for a flowy dress that's around the knee and went from there. Best of luck!

He's gonna edit all the good ones and give them all to me on a CD and give me rights.. WOOHOO :o)  I'm nervous.. I'm soo not in the shape I want to be in. I told him he better have a good editing software.. lol

                    Good idea.. My bridesmaid also mentioned this.. but I don't even know where to start.. I'm really hoping I can luck up and find the same dress in everyones size since I have a few months I can look. My mom said she would agree to buy all 5 of my bmaids' dresses since they are paying for the trip. :o) I thought that was super sweet!

                     

                    Can't wait to see how yours turn out! :o)

                      I agree, that is super sweet! :) If you have a place where you can get cheap fabrics, just bring a swatch of your choice of color and go from there. If you already have a style in mind for everyone, even better. All you have to do is purchase the fabric & materials and get the dresses made. Maybe your mom can pay for the labor instead if you go this route. If only you live close to Los Angeles, you'll be golden. They have a garment district w/ tons of fabrics, flowers wedding/party events materials on sale that's why. But as you've said, you have a few months to go to really look and I hope you find what you're looking for! :D

                       

                      Thank you! I have until the end of the year to get everyone to the seamstress lol.
