Gazelle Bridesmaid Dresses–Revealed!

Something that I was never able to share with the Hive before the wedding were our finished bridesmaid dresses.  My mom, being the awesome seamstress that she is, offered to make the dresses for our girls.  We settled upon Butterick B5322 for MOH-T:

And for BM-D, she would get the strapless version of Simplicity 4070.

My mom would adjust the skirt of the patterns to include box pleats similar to our Alfred Sung inspiration dresses.

You guys, Mama Gazelle was awesome and amazing.  She made several treks out to Calgary (a 7 hour drive one way) to fit the dresses on the girls to ensure that the girls would feel beautiful and that the dresses would fit perfectly.  Plus, not only was she making the two bridesmaid dresses, she was making our Flower Girl’s dress and her own dress.  She had to pull a couple of all nighters the week of the wedding to finish everything off, but at the end of the day everyone looked so beautiful.

First up, our super cute and adorable niece as our Flower Girl:DSCN5134DSCN5498

Even though the girls could pick any shoes they wanted (except preferably not black) they both chose the Dasa from Nine West in pewter satin.DSCN4959

Mama Gazelle then made a tie for each dress in a matching fabric to the shoes.

I think the girls looked amazing and their dresses fit them so well.  Many thanks to Mama Gazelle for all of the hard work that she put in.  It definitely paid off!

Did your bridesmaids order their dresses or are you having them made?
