Update: Dresses (Final)

I didn't see the bottom dress, and besides that, I should just go with the decision I made and not second guess myself. As Brunhilda pointed out, there are a million things to choose from. And it's quite difficult to choose when there are too many choices!

MOH Joce chose the same dress as BMs Emily, Kristy & Crystal. I was surprised because it does show a bit more cleavage, but for her it came down to the fact that she liked the corset-style back so much more than the more modest top with the zip-up back. It's her choice. :)

See, the frustrating thing (for me) is that I don't care that much, but there are so many choices that I'm just worried whatever I do pick, I'll regret it later. Or worse, my bridesmaids won't like it.

But, it's done. The deposits have been made - a 50% deposit.

So that's that - no point in second guessing myself!

Yay! Another thing you can cross off your list. Your ladies are going to look lovely!

I think you've made the right decision, and on the day you'll probably not be worrying about your bridesmaids anyway :)

Jess said...

Congrats! And it's always good to go with your gut. I think you made the right choice!

Carly said...

Congrats! Yesterday, I was going to tell you to just go with your original dress options, but you seemed to like the orange dress a lot so I didn't want to say anything. In the end, I think you did a great job of letting your ladies pick their favorite! Don't second guess yourself...it seems that everyone is very happy with the decision. The dress is gorgeous and they will all look beautiful!!

Brunhilda said...

Well done indeed. Second guessing is no good for anyone; you will drive yourself crazy that way. I bet it feels good to have a deposit down. Thanks for the link love!

Rachel said...

LOL!!
Okay, I'm only laughing because I was EXACTLY the same way you are! I could not make up my mind, and then when I did, my sister-in-law didn't like it. And I STILL wasn't "sold" on the navy, but by that time, I didn't care. I was just glad to get them ordered.
My advice?? Let them be ordered, and forget about them. And don't look at any more. Because you will see something you *think* you like better, and it will drive you mad.

I love the dresses by the way. And remember, other than you and your bridesmaids, nobody will really remember what they wore anyways!!!

Rachel said...

Argh!! Krista!! So, I AM 34??? Garrr....
Thanks. LOL!

Yes, I think I do look younger than my age, but just remember that you can't see all the wisdom and wrinkles around my eyes as well in pictures!!! ;-)
The profile pic is about 3 years old, but I think I still pretty much look like that. My hair's shorter as of last weekend.

But thank you for the compliments! Maybe I will start telling people I'm 25! Ha! Maybe 27. 27 was a good year for me.

Bridechka said...

Yay, one more thing done! I think you completely made the right decision.

Krista said...

Bridechka, Brunhilda, Carly, Jess, LB & Professional Bridesmaid: yep, it's a decision. It doesn't matter now if it's the right one - it's made! (So I accept it as the right decision, only because it's the final decision.)
Rachel - no, when you're 33, your in your thirty-forth year. So I'm 27, and I'm in my twenty-eighth year. (But I say go ahead & tell everyone who doesn't know you well that you're 27.)

I totally understand how you feel. I have been agonizing over every decision. But we need to remember when it is all said in done we will be married to the love our our lives!!! And restu assured your bridesmaids will look beautiful.

The dresses are fantastic, so worry not! I'm a second-guesser, too, but the dresses are one decision I feel great about. Your girls are going to be incredibly beautiful and the dresses are chic and timeless, which is perfect in my opinion!
