Decisions have been made for the bridesmaids’ dresses!
We loved the dresses from Alfred Sung…
…and while I was in the mall the other weekend I found another source of inspiration. These super cute bubble dresses from RW&Co.My mom will be making the dresses for the girls so I scoured the internet for a pattern to pull together all of the elements in the dresses that we really like. Enter the following patterns:
MOH-T will be sporting Butterick B5490:

And BM-D will be sporting the strapless Simplicity pattern 4070:

I love the pleating at the waistband on these dresses! We will be going the different dresses in the same fabric route.
As luck would have it we found fabric too! The other week I was lamenting to BM-D about the difficulty of finding purple fabric. I was thinking that if we couldn’t find a suitable fabric in the right colour that maybe silver would be a good back up choice? BM-D was pretty adamant about having a purple dress so she went off to the fabric store and found some purple stretch taffeta that is really pretty. The fabric store was having massive sale later that weekend so we bought it at 50% off! Many thanks to BM-D for being so proactive in finding the right fabric for dresses. And thanks to my mom I think we will have some absolutely beautiful dresses for a fraction of the cost of a dress from a bridal salon.
Did you have a proactive bridal party to help find the perfect dresses?
