Bridesmaid Dresses!

12 January 2012

I am lucky enough to have four beautiful ladies standing beside me on my wedding day. Two are my sisters, and two are my future sisters :) Now that I know what I’m going to wear, I’ve been turning my attention to their attire. Yep, they’re all going to be wearing the same thing, and it’s likely going to be floor-length, chiffon, and slate gray… though that’s not 100% certain yet. I’d also like their dress to have a natural waist and a sweetheart neckline. We’re thinking a little something like this:

With the above inspiration in mind, I set out to find a few budget-conscious possibilities that fit my desired look. I waded through an abundance of options to find a few I thought were both stylish AND reasonably priced, then turned things over to the ladies. Together, we’ve since narrowed it down to three options. Here they are:

From left to right, that’s Bill Levkoff Style 193, Allure Bridal Style 1221, and Bill Levkoff Style 537!

My bridesmaids live in four different states (and I live in a fifth), so sadly, a group shopping trip is not in the cards. Instead, they’ll each visit a salon near them, try on the options, and then report back to the group. Hopefully we’ll have consensus at that point, and you can be sure I’ll check back in with our final pick! In the meantime, let us know in the comments which dress is your favorite!

The Pewter color from Bill Levkof is amazing! I’m wearing that in a wedding on January 21.

I saw a beautiful slate-gray sweetheart top dress in H&M this weekend and thought of you! I don’t believe they are floor length, but definitely worth looking into. I think the price was very affordable as well!

How much for this dress Style 1221. Royal blue. Perfect for my bridesmaids!!! Also do you only sell online or do you have stores in Australia that stock these? I think that my girls would like to try them on first. Thanks
