Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe

For some reason, picking out bridesmaids dresses was a thousand times more stressful then picking out my own wedding gown. I'm sure part of it had to do with the color of our wedding (clover) and partially with the fact I wanted the girls to like what they were wearing.

Initially, I told my girls to send me over some ideas of dresses they liked and we'd start narrowing them down that way. I was secretly hoping they wanted cocktail length dresses, but the first unanimous opinion the girls expressed was long dresses and something that hides their pooch. Darn on the cocktail length, but the pooch?? Really girls? They were all petite girls and I couldn't see a darn pooch on them anywhere! Anyway, emails started slowly trickling in with suggestions.

Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

My MOH would be in town a few weeks later and offered to go try them on with me to help narrow down the choices and relieve my stress of picking out a dress for the girls. After trying on several dresses, my MOH narrowed the choices down to two dresses. I immediately emailed my other two girls to go to their nearest Alfred Angelo store, try them on, and decide which one they liked better. From there, majority rules. Simple enough, right? Right! The votes were casted and one dress came out victorious! The dress had a corset back and a ruched bodice, similar to my wedding dress!

With the decision made and deposit paid. Bridesmaid dress dilemma was over. Phew! Finally!! Or so I thought...

How did your bridesmaid dress scavenger hunt go?


  1. I like cocktail length hence my decision to change my long one into a short one. However, a long dress is really elegant too and may be more suitable for a wedding

  2. sorry, i have no knowledge regarding this topic. :-(
