A Little Update on the Bridesmaids Dresses!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Shopping for bridesmaids dresses in Atlanta yesterday was generally a success. I had three lovely models with me (thank you girls!) who looked good in just about every dress they tried on. I feel like we tried on a large selection and, in the end, found something that was comfortable, romantic, summery, and beautiful! Let me tell you a little about our experience at Bridals by Lori.

We met at 10 a.m. and sat in the front lobby for a few minutes. This was just enough time to see Monte from the show come in and say "Good Morning Ladies!" in his television-worthy voice. That man was dressed to the nines! Our consultant came by and brought us back to the bridesmaids fitting room area and basically told us that we could look through all of the dresses and pull the ones we liked. I'm not going to lie, it was a bit overwhelming! There were hundreds of dresses! We were a little hesitant about what we picked at first, but soon got more comfortable and started pulling more freely. My only directions were "long, chiffon, and if you see something you LOVE regardless of those two things, pull it!" After we pulled about 20 dresses, my girls went to work! They tried on some dresses by Dessy, Bill Levkoff, Bari Jay, LOVE by Enzoani, and Jim Hjelm Occasions. Here are some of the dresses we tried:

Most of them were cute on but not "the one". Then, we came across this dress:

It was long, flowed easily, and fit in with the "look" of the wedding. We haven't purchased the dresses yet because I really want to get feedback from all the girls, but this one is definitely a front-runner. Overall, it was a nice experience and it was so good to spend some time with my best friends!
