As some of you already know, I did find "the one"! :-) I can't reveal which one it is just yet. However, the story behind finding the one is a little interesting. After trying on many dresses, all of them are not pictured. I was getting ready to leave the bridal store and felt a little defeated because I started to beleive I would never find the one and may have to result in having my bridesmaid dresses made. As we began to head out of the store, the bridal consultant asked, exactly what I was looking for. So, I told her what I wanted. So, within two minutes she approached my bridesmaid and I with a dress that we both COMPLETELY looked over. We both looked at each other with the "What in the world?!" face thinking, "No way". However, I still tried it on because the bridal consultant went through the trouble of getting it and I figured what harm could it do?! I also have learned through my search you can't judge a dress from a hanger, you must try it on to get a real feel for it! Well, once I had it on, I loved it! I plan to accessorize it to make it my own but overall, I am very happy with my choice and that the search is over :-) All of my girls, love the dress too, so that was important to me, as well. (It's a little pic heavy).
Dress #10-The designer on this beauty is Enzoani. I love the bedazzled belt and the upper portion of this dress. I do feel like the bottom has too much fabric. I like the draping but the fabric seems a little excessive to me, I don't know. However, it's technically not a bridesmaids dress, it's a mother of the bride dress. I love it though.
Dress #11-One of my bridesmaids finally joined me on my search! I'm not sure who the designer is. I liked the dress on the hanger but not on. The dress looks a little matronly to me. I did like the angled bust and the mini blinged brooch.
This is Dress #12-The designer is Saison Blanche. I think this dress has a great silhouette and surprisingly, I really adore the large bow. I felt it gave the dress a little character. However, others( I will not call any names) said it was very obnoxious..lol! I also really like that this dress comes in a vast selection of colors.
Dress #13-I think this dress is very Audrey Hepburn, so I had to try it on. This dress is a nice elegant choice but I also think it's a little ordinary. It's a lovely dress but not quite the look I am going for. (Excuse the pose, I was holding up the dress because it was a lil too big).
Dress #14-The designer of this dress is Bari Jay. I actually liked this dress for the most part but I wasn't a fan of the random flap hanging from the bust area. The fabric was pretty good quality. However, it is a little thick for a summer wedding and I don't want my girls passing out on me.
Dress #15- The designer of this dress is Alfred Angelo. I loved this dress. I love the silhouette and the array of colors it comes in. I wasn't a fan of the corset back, it looks nice but it would be a little time consuming to put on. I was also indifferent about the angled flap but overall, this was one of my fav's!
Dress #16 -The designer is Camille La Vie. This dress looked like it had potential online but in person it was a totally different story. In short, it's cheap and the fabric was soooo flimsy. As you can see in the photo, the dress was literally falling apart..NO BUENO!
Dress #17-The designer is Lazaro. Love this dress! So elegant and chic. The belted bow and silhouette is right up my alley. However, the colors that this dress comes in are very limited.
I was so in love with that bow...it's so fabulous :-)
Well, that was my looong bridesmaid dress search journey! Thanks for stopping by and for all of your feedback! XOXO
Stay Tuned for the next segment of Wedding Wednesday :-)
