Bridesmaid Dress Update

It feels like it's been forever since I've posted! I'm busy all the time with my grad school work.

Well, last weekend, I went to look at the Dessy bridesmaid dresses I posted about. Needless to say, I was not as impressed in person as I thought I would be. I didn't have anyone with me so I just tried it on... and I hated it. I also saw the color that I had been thinking was THE ONE... but it was ugly. yuck! Soo, overall, I walked out feeling quite dejected because I tried on a billion bridesmaid dresses and none were what I'm looking for.

So, I went back to David's Bridal on Saturday. I told the consultant that I just wanted to look around and I did. I was much more successful here! I found 3 possible dresses in a color that I think I can accept. I had been hating all of the pinks out there, but I think David's Bridal 'Candy Pink' will work nicely. So, my favorite is the short cotton sateen dress in the middle. The long dress with sweetheart organza neckline and bow is #2. And then, there's always the plain-er style of long dress that we could do a sash with.

The dresses look a little bit more mauve-y in these colorized pictures than they do in person. I think that one of these is the one!! Yay for making progress! I think this will just be much easier to do at David's Bridal... plus they're cheaper!

Next step, take some bridesmaids to DB and get them to help decide which one we should do!


  1. I LOVE the middle one. When I was growing up I always thought I would want my BMs to wear long dresses. Now I want them to wear short ones.

  2. I also love the middle one! Great choice!

  3. ok i've been slacking on reading your blog...let me check out these dressessss....

  4. I think I like the first 2 the best, but lets just go try them on when I'm home. yay!
