Bridesmaid Dresses

I have posted on this topic all-ready. I thought I had a bridesmaid style picked out. I was thinking a-line, with ruching. Something like this:

I was looking a styles that fit that style. I dragged two bridesmaid across Toronto to look at 3 stores that carried the entire Watters line. We got there, and even though all 3 stores indicated on-line that they carry the full line, none actually carried the full line. I looked at some Watters dresses, some Alfred Angelo dresses, and some Mori Lee dresses.

Then I started looking on-line again. And I discovered the many virtues of non-bridesmaid dresses.

Ack! Why am I struggling more with the bridesmaid dresses than with my bridal gown!
(The bridesmaid dress will be a gold or red dress, not necessary the colours above)

Love the non-traditional dresses. Very cute.

I think so, too!

The non-traditional dresses are HOT! Are your bridesmaids comfortable with showing some leg? (The J. Crew one is so pretty, but looks a bit short) Let us know which one you choose!

Girl, I hear you! The bridesmaid dresses have had me baffled and wandering around looking dazed and confused for months. I personally am loving that lacey Alfred Angelo!
