All about the Bridesmaids...

So today I spent a little bit of time searching for bridesmaids dresses on the Knot. I found a couple of options that I really like. And I also (sort of) decided on a color! So here is a selection from my first round of BM dress searching:

Ideally, this would be the dress. It's from Ann Taylor and unfortunately it's a little expensive so I'll try to find a cheaper substitute so my 'maids don't hate me :)

But in the meantime, here are some other choices of styles I really like too. (Of course these would all be the same color as the first one).



Jenny Yoo Collection

J. Crew Weddings

Impression Bridesmaids

This is a centerpiece from one of my friend's weddings. Isn't it so beautiful? I thought it was a good idea.

So that's about it for now. BM's and other guests feel free to leave comments on which one you like best!! I'll keep the search up.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd are my faves! I like the bows. :)

I agree with cara. 1st 2nd and 3rd. I also LOVE the bows. very southern. That flower arrangement is totally cute too. I like the limes. You could do lemons and oranges as well for pops random color.

Love all your choices... esp the first 3!! :) Never seen the limes in a vase idea, very cute!

Cute dresses!!
You should be able to easily find a good substitute for that dress since it is a simple style. And the color is great!! I know Alfred Angelo has a color similar to that. Maybe a little darker...

Finding a good bridesmaid dress is pretty tricky - it's hard to think about several different people's styles, body types, and then reconcile it with what you like! Throw in a budget, and it's really hard!! It seemed like all the dresses I found and liked were over $200.

Oh, and one last tip - many of the dresses on the Knot are from a couple seasons ago. If you find a designer on there that you like, you may try to look at their site directly.
