Bridesmaid's Dresses

So I've been shopping around lately for some bridesmaid dresses and I all I find that I actually like are the dresses over $100! I feel so guilty asking them to pay that much for a dress that they'll only wear once... So I've decided to pick a dress they can wear more than once and I've fallen in love with Forever 21. Check out these finds!


$14.50
Simple & Elegant

...............................................................

$37.80
I am in love with these black lace dresses. They are absolutely classy & elegant... plus the 2 tones break up the solid black

..........................................................

$24.80
I am IN LOVE with the bottom half of this dress... if the top were black as well, I'd be sold on it.

..........................................................

$22.80
Very Classy

................................................................


$22.80
I love the strapless dresses, but I'm more of a fan of the first lace dress

.............................................................


$27.80
This is black lace on black... I love the subtle detail

...................................................................

$24.80
Another simple black dress

.............................................................


$24.80
I love this shade of green! And the style is just adorable!

.....................................................................

Ok so, I'm really leaning on little black dresses to be my bridesmaid dresses... It's classic, elegant, and you just can't go wrong with a LBD. Plus, every woman needs a LBD anyway :)

You always hear how brides want their bridesmaids to look bad to make the bride look better. Well I disagree. I want my bridesmaids to look stunning and beautiful! I want them to compliment me, the bride. I want them to FEEL beautiful too. That's very important to me.

What's your favorite?

The green! Love it.

I'm loving the first black, first lace and the green one!! I saw at a friends wedding where all the girls had on different black dresses...they were all about knee or shin length. It actually was cute since they all flattered each girls body. Maybe that's an idea? Give them a few black dress choices, like the ones above and have them pick?! Idk! haha!

Patty Ann said...

I love that, it's such a great idea! I picked one that was 170, but I let my bridesmaids tell me their picks. Forever 21 always has great dresses and I think any of these are beautiful. I also like the idea of having the same colors but different styles.

black is always a good color...and you can put any bright colors of flowers to add a big splash! all of the dresses are SO cute!!

BUT....beware of Forever21...if you want to order dresses from there...one person needs to order all at one time...dont tell your girls to each get on there and get them. Their dresses disappear fast on there! I have seen a few on there for a week and then gone!

Other good places to look...anne taylor/anne taylor loft..banana republic....and nordstrom! i have a friend that just got some BM dresses at nordstrom that were right at $100!

Good luck! I got married in May 2008 and I miss the wedding planning so bad!!! :)

mandi said...

i love the first one! you can wear any accessory with it so that makes it pretty versatile. I recently bought a dress that looks JUST like it except i paid $90! 14.50 is a steal!

Karen said...

hey,
awww you are such a wonderful bride, i here that a lot that the brides want the bridesmaid to look Not as stunning...
i really really love 3 4 & 5th =]

Elizabeth Marie said...

I am soo with you on LBD's for Bridesmaid dresses. I love the first one, and I'm sure your girls will love the prices of all of them! You're such a nice bride-to-be to consider that! XOXO

Jessica said...

The first black one is my favorite. I think its the most perfect bridesmaid dress out of the list. and it's something that all your bridesmaids could wear many times. And forever 21 is a great store to go to. i'll probably go to someplace like that when i get married.

The very best compliment I received about my wedding was that it looked like I had picked my bridal party out of a magazine because they all looked so fantastic!! That's what it should be about, right? You and your best girlfriends and sisters all looking incredible!

Good luck picking! A LBD is absolutely timeless!

Grace said...

You are such a good bride! I think the second lace one has more capability of being versatile. But even more so than that, the last LBD is so simple that it can be worn for a very long time. I'm sticking with my first choice though.

Love Grace.

brooke said...

oohhh...i love the third from the bottom and the last one!!! cute and affordable!! definitely a double bonus!!

KekeLynn said...

Love the first one, but they are all really pretty!

Kym said...

great finds! i love the green one! i'm the MOH for my brothers wedding coming up in november... the dresses we all liked was over $300!!! so we opted to just get it made! only $80 for labour! :) can't wait to read more from your blog!

Angela Darling said...

I wish I was in your wedding party. It'd be nice to know that a bride isn't trying to make her bridesmaids look like poo. I LOVE that first lace dress. GORGEOUS!

Tracy-Girl said...

are we the same person??!?!? My bridesmaid dresses are black - I only found a few I liked and they were so expensive! Until, I was randomly shopping at H&M and found the perfect black dress. It is EXACTLY what I wanted, and to top it off... it was $34.90. So I bought all of them on the spot, and they are fabulous. Do you live near an H&M? Check it out. Ill post pictures of mine soon! but... I like the sweetheart neck simple black dress!

Tracy-Girl said...

by the way... i would love to see your wedding dress if you have a sec to send a picture over! I'll show you my top secret dress - I mean, who will you tell? :)

Sarah, The New Girl said...

They all look great!! I think it's sweet that you're trying to keep cost and "wearability" in mind for your bridesmaids :) I like them all-- but that last green one is really pretty!!!

lauren said...

I like #4! Who can't look great in that!? Simple elegant and the bridesmaids can totally wear it later!

Anonymous said...

I love all those dresses.... esp the black of white ones they are all great though....did you find them all at forever 21

M.J. said...

I prefer the first lace dress or the green dress.

Annie said...

I like all the dresses! The first one is my fave. If you do all black dresses, I think you should let each girl pick one they like. Then hopefully they will have a chance to wear it again and won't mind paying for them ;)

Lindsay said...

those are all so cute!! let us know which one you pick!

also- left you an award on my blog!

Sonia. said...

Oh my gosh I love the 2nd lace (strapless) dress! I wonder if Forever 21 ship to the UK...

simplebeauty said...

My favorite is the very top dress :O)

The Sanchez Family said...

i love the 3rd from the last one... Very cute!! But just to give you a piece of insight, MOST BM dresses are around $150... It's pretty standard in my opinion. I've been in 3 weddings, and had my OWN wedding, and all of the BM dresses were about $170. So if you find one that's a little pricey that you love, don't feel bad about asking your gals if the price is OK... chances are you'll be paying the same for their weddings! :)

T said...

These bridesmaid dresses are classy and cute! Great picks. I love that you want your bridesmaids to be able to wear them again.

Gina said...

Great finds.!! Black is always a good color for bridesmaid's dresses. #2 black lace dress is my favorite.

Jamie said...

I think I like the first two the best...but don't ask me it's not like I'm one of the brides maids...haha!! just kidding!
