    Bridesmaid dresses. I told them the color and for them to buy any style they wanted.

    Bridesmaid dresses. I wanted to give all the girls ample time to save up and get the dress.

    I got my wedding dress ordered already (soooo impatient to get back to the USA to do a fitting ughhhh) and I'll do the bridesmaid dresses in time. I want to find a website with short options for the summer wedding for them to be comfortable, but also where they can choose between designs. My SIL used birdygrey for when I was her bridesmaid, which was great, but they only offer full length dresses.

    Both are still a work in progress although I’ll be picking my dress first and basing the bridesmaids dress off that

    Wedding dress! It was the very first thing planned other than our wedding date. Picked it out with my mom on July 16th, 2019!

    Wedding dress first! I picked mine the first day I tried on dresses. I was considering a few options for bridesmaids dresses before I settled on the look/style I wanted.
