When picking out a dress I wanted to find one that was simple and "garden party" in style because of the wedding being outside in August. I also wanted to find a dress that was sophisticated and flattered all body types. The winner was a dress from David's Bridal in Pewter that is adorable in my opinion! And as a bonus it costs only $80, which is pretty darn cheap for a bridesmaid dress.
And the junior bridesmaid's dress, also from David's Bridal, is really similar, but meets the criteria of being more age appropriate for a 10-year-old :)
I would like to jazz up both dresses with a brooch or flower at the waist... we shall see :)
The other aspect to the bridesmaid's attire that I am super de duper excited about is the shoes!!! I wanted shoes that popped and made a statement, so I went the dyeable route to get the exact color that I wanted. Sticking with the wedding colors of grey and yellow, I chose to order the shoes from Payless in the color Daffodil that is offered from their Unforgettable Moments shoe line. The bridemaids are wearing the style Natalie (the name of my maid of honor!) and the junior bridesmaid will wear a flat in the same color :) I am sooooooo excited!
Beyond the fact that the shoe color is perfect, I was able to apply Payless's BOGO sale to them, which made buying a bulk order a lot more affordable :)
I am still working out what type of accessories to go with... maybe a statement necklace? We shall see :)
