I am having a heck of a time finding a bridesmaids dress. All of my lovely 8 bridesmaids are different sizes, shapes, heights, busts, and shades! It is impossible to find the "best fit" for all of them, but it is also nearly impossible to find a satisfactory one. Plus, with my must-haves: long-length, flow-y, and hopefully a band across the middle (empire waist style), with a ribbon cascading down the back- and something under 150 dollars each...It's dang hard!!!
I have probably spent a cumulative of 20 hours browsing for dresses. Praise God i found MY dress so quickly! Now i can spend all of THAT extra time searching for my best friends' gowns. Don't get me wrong--I am having a blast looking at all of the creative fashion going on in the world these days. But there comes a time when you realize a few things that make this decision ever more urgent. Like, for instance, my eight bridesmaids are from (note that i am in wichita, kansas):
San Diego, CA
New York, NY
Overland Park, KS
Colorado Springs, CO
Valley Center, KS
and YES, one faithful Wichitan-my dear friend Heidi:)
I'm actually making it out to be a bit more dramatic than it is...see, Valley Center is like, just across the pond, and salina and overland park are only a couple hours away.
Well, I checked out this site:
and found a nice dress that is affordable and chic. But it doesn't have pictures of the different colors, and there's no way i can try it on. or anyone can. until they are ordered.
HELP! Please, if you or any of your friends have had a wedding recently, and a similar bridesmaids dress crisis, I would covet your tips and advice!!!
Til then, back to googling:)
