Originally, I had told all my girls they could pick any dress they wanted in Holly Green, from David's Bridal. My only original term was that if one girl wanted a short dress, at least two needed a short dress. Well, then we started thinking. I'm getting married in January. While I love the idea of short dresses (even with black tights!), it wasn't logical. I didn't want my girls to regret short dresses either. So, in the end, they all have long dresses from David's Bridal.
There are only 8 long dresses to choose from in my color at DB, which kind of sucks. But in the end, it actually worked out really well - two girls are in one dress, two girls are in another dress, and two girls are in similar dresses, though not identical. I like it. I think it'll look fabulous. The girls were all able to pick dresses that work great with their body type, and they could have considered price too (though I don't think they did) All the dresses are primarily satin, though 3 of them have chiffon accents, so they all jive well together too. Shanon will be in a completely different dress, but she's the junior bridesmaid so it doesn't really matter - she only has 3 choices, and she made it a long time ago - as in, November.
And now, without further ado...
*Note: these are not my bridesmaids. Clearly, I do not have twins, and who the eff poses like that?

The girls have until August 1st to buy dresses, so they'll all have guaranteed addresses at that time. With most of us graduating/recently graduated, our addresses have been a bit wonky lately (heck - I don't even know my address come July!). David's Bridal was great for us, just because they're everywhere. The average cost of the dresses was $130, though they range from $99 to $155. I'm really excited to see all of them together!
