It has been a whole week since I have blogged and it makes me kinda sad! Work has been crazy the last week, but in a good way. We are amping up for the holiday season, so there are a lot of phone calls to make and hands to shake!
I have taken a bit of a mental break with the wedding planning, the only thing that I have thought about in the last week is the bridesmaid dresses. My philosophy has always been that I don't want anyone to have to go broke being in my wedding, nor would I want anyone to never wear the dress that they had to pay for again. I was set on asking a girl from College Station to make my dresses, but they were going to be yellow cotton. Plans have changed though, now that I have gotten my dress.
Without revealing too much, my dress calls for something a bit more formal than cotton and a bit less bright than yellow.
One of my bridesmaids had suggested J Crew, which makes nice dresses, but is a little pricey for what I wanted. However, they are having a sale on the fall line and I thought if I just chose a fabric(silk taffeta) and a color(champagne/papaya/lavender), then the girls can get whatever style they want. Some of the dresses are on sale now, so it would work out.
I went to J Crew today and found out that they actually launched their new line for Spring 2010 of BM dresses. Good news: beautiful colors that I really like Bad news: All of the styles are over $200. Boooooo.
So, I went trolling and found a few things online. Of course I want them to be nice, but affordable.
The first dress is from Alfred Angelo, which is decent, and they have multiple colors of it. Also, they don't list the exact price, but they do say it is under $150. The next two are from ModCloth and are both under $85.
I figured if I got a dress that was solid and simple, I would add a waste band to them. I found these on Etsy and I lurve them!
