Everyone's Happy!!

Earlier this weekend, I trekked up to Boston to meet up with a majority of the bridesmaids, the girls all met and met my mother. We had a lovely, lovely lunch, laughed, chatted and everyone got along fabulously. Then we went to the appointments and the girls picked dresses!

We had two appointments - one at L'elite and one at Aria Dress both on Newbury Street about two blocks from one another. I had gone to Aria Dress in DC with Miss Jeff Memorial, and fell in love with the dresses. So I wasn't surprised when we got there that the girls (T, S, Sister GP, and L -Mr. GP's little sister) all fell in love with them as well.

The greatest part about the dresses is that girls all loved them which was what I wanted.

The color of the dresses is navy, with the green sash in "leaf."

We went after Aria to L'elite because I was curious about the Dessy collection. The girls looked through the styles and didn't see anything they liked, the prices were a little more than I wanted them to spend so I decided not to waste time having the lady pull out dresses thinking we were actually interested when the girls weren't and I too was not impressed. The service was good, but the dresses were just...a little too formal for what I'm looking for.

Anyhow, so the girls picked their styles, each one different, but all the same with the sash, so now Miss JM and I need to make another appointment so she can pick her style and then the dresses can get ordered and another thing checked off my list!

Did your BM's all match? Did you let them pick their own styles?

I selected 4 tea length style dresses by B2 in the same color and material and let my bridesmaids pick the one that they are most comfortable in.

my BM's pushed for J. Crew and after finding that you can a lot of them on EBAY (past years, same color), I think everyone felt more comfortable with the price. the cotton cady j.crew dresses are wonderful! very lightweight and have POCKETS.
