    I did the bridesmaid dresses first! I haven’t even looked for a dress for myself yet! It was so easy to find theirs!

    I'm not really picking the bridesmaids dresses. I am just about to order my wedding dress.

    Wedding dress. I went during a David's bridal sale when my older sister was in town in case it was the only time she was in town before I had to order so that she could at least be at 1 try on date and ended up falling in love

    Bridesmaids. I’ve been making sure they’ve had everything so I’m not of inconvenience.

    Wedding dress! All I know about the bridesmaids dresses right now is that I want them to be navy and floor-length.

    Wedding dress came first! Initially I thought I wanted navy bridesmaid dresses but ended up with burgundy. My color palette changed and I had trouble figuring that out until a couple of months before the wedding.

    My bridesmaids chose their own dresses because one is 8 months pregnant, one is 16 years old, and one is my very picky sister... and I had two bridesmen. (They wore navy suits, burgundy ties, and burgundy floral lapel pin) ❤️ Ahhh, it was the perfect day. 💕

    Dress for me i found my dress long before i even got engaged

    My wedding dress. It was the 5th one I tried on. I spent forever looking on Azazie to find bridesmaids dresses for them to choose from.

    My girls are picking their own dresses (within specific parameters) so I guess my wedding dress.

    I found my dress first. I went and tried on dresses on a whim because there was a sale and found the one! It was way too soon for bridesmaids dresses at that point. We just got bridesmaids dresses a few weeks ago!
