Dressing my pretties!

I ventured downtown today to check out bridesmaid dresses. 
I must admit not being able to make a fun day of trying on dresses with my bridesmaids really gets me down.. in a major way. BUT decisions need to be made so I need to make my situation work. 
I headed to Nordstroms to look for this Donna Morgan dress for my girls..


and putting my Maid of Honor in this one.. 


They are both Donna Morgan dresses and although the shades look different in the above pics they are actually the same color. 
Nordstrom's only had the dress in a size 10 so here's the best pics I could get with holding as much of the dress back as I could.


Awkward length right?
 I still LOVE this dress and I'm thinking if I was actually wearing the right size it may not be as awkward of a length OR if need be we could hem it up a bit.

They had the same dress in a smaller size in this bright blue color that which I LOVE but it is SO not the color scheme we have in mind for our wedding.


I also like this Monique Lluiller dress
They only had it in a size 10..which again gave the awkward length..

this was a 4.. which fit much better and hit right above the knee. 

I liked all of these dresses a lot. When showing Ed he preferred the first one. 

Opinions please!!!!

I really think finding a dress for my girls has been a harder decision than finding my wedding dress!

  2. The first dress is THEEEE dress mark my words. Reason being you picked a dress that your bridesmaids can actually wear again somewhere say another wedding or out on a vacation or wherever!! I hate when brides pick awful over frilly dresses that you can't wear anywhere else!!

  10. I'm the odd ball. I like the last one and the color. Sorry to throw a wrench in it. But maybe I'd just like it to own and wear as a guest. :)

  11. My girlfriend was in a wedding party in the summer and they had these almost lime green ones. They looked so good and flattered every body type. Love the last ones too though :p. Tough call
