I searched all the common websites (david's bridal, pinterest, etsy, local bridal shops, weddingtonway, Nordstrom's, watters.com ). On pinterest I found a picture of bridesmaids wearing taupe lacy dresses. Hello, we have a winner. Alas, they were from a different season and not available. So I looked at other dresses that were similar on Nordstrom's website, and I found none to my liking. At least I had an idea of what I wanted. I found the dress I loved on watters.com. It comes in several cuts, but these two were my favorites.
Watters Dress Camillia
Watters Dress Iris
I used their locations search and found they had the dresses at the shop I bought my wedding dress, Swoon. I met up with the bridesmaids on a Saturday afternoon and had them try on the different cuts to see what their favorites were and if these were dresses they even liked. They loved the dresses and said they could and would wear them again since they are not the "classic" bridesmaid dresses. Well at least I hope they are being honest about that. After all four girls tried on different cuts, I asked them to pick out their favorites. I told them if there was one, two or four different cuts they liked, we could work with that. After asking each of them, they decided they all wanted to wear the Iris dress. They will be navy lining with navy lace. I am so excited to see them in the dress! They tried it on in white which was not a good color for the dress, so hopefully navy is better. Plus they are adding bra cups in them and they will be their size. I will spare them the classic photos of them in each of the dresses.
Super excited and I wish it was June when I get my dress and they get theirs too!
