Will this look crazypants?


Dear ESB,

Deciding I wanted non-matching bridesmaid dresses that still "go" was probably a terrible idea. But whatever I'm committed now so I'm going to make it work. I have two bridesmaids and they are super chill and drama free (who are all these people whose bridesmaids secretly want to kill them?!)

Anyway after braving the mall and browsing online for hours upon hours I feel like I am drowning in dresses and not feeling anything. Why is this ten time harder than finding my wedding dress? 

Background on my wedding, we want it to be relaxed and fun, going for a kick ass garden party feeling. These are my "colours." 

I finally found these two dresses online and I that look like they could be flattering on both maids and fit the feeling of the day.

Will that many stripes look redic standing next to me at the alter???

Thanks,
Drowning in Dresses

DO IT.

  4. These are amazing! The best bridesmaid dresses I've seen in a long while. Seriously.. I'm sick of seeing all the bridesmaids look the same across the blogworld.

  6. AGREED! Do It! These will look killer!
    This is the one situation where they will actually wear these dresses again.

  7. Oh hey, this is me!
    Sadly in the day it took me to decide that I loved them all the small sizes sold out online :(
    This has now happened to me twice, how do things sell out so fast?!

  9. Call Nordstrom customer service-- they can track down the sizes for you. I had to do this before when I slacked on buying a bridesmaid dress. They are the best.

  10. Nordstrom will find them for you! They did this for me, too! Tell them it's for your wedding!

  11. I LOVVVVE this idea and those zig zags together, it's like this but done bridal/garden party-ish.

  12. Yah definitely. Nordstrom will call their stores and pull any remaining smalls of the racks for you, and have them shipped to you. We had to do the same thing for my Mom's dress, if I remember correctly.

    Great dresses! They're perfect.

  15. So cute! I'm doing the same idea for my wedding and I find quite a few floral patterned dresses in my colors and I think I will add them to the choices for my b-maids. More color, more fun right?

    1. Those are cute but personally I try to avoid horizontal stripes around my ass.

  16. 1. If Nordstrom can't find them, try Taylor Dress' retailer search or contact their customer service.

    2. The dresses are really cute. Just make sure your bridesmaids like, are willing to wear, and look good in horizontal stripes.

  17. I also really like this one: HERE

    and small sizes are still available!

  18. Oh, I recently saw some stripey bridesmaids here and loved it.

  19. They are cute, but maybe a little too cute? I love mixing prints but it's a bit easier to do when you can see them in person. I know you're not really looking but I came across this beauty and really liked how it almost has all of your colors and i just want to wear it.

  20. These are pretty sweet but matching prints is hard to do when you can't seem the in person. Also, as much as I love a good zig-zag, if either of your ladies have larger breasts they are probably not going to be so keen. I came across this lovely and not only does it look perfect for a garden party with a hipster vibe, the colors, they are almost all of your colors!

  21. Both look amazing together. Go for it. I just received the pink and cream in the mail; it looks great on but runs big; recommend to bridesmaids to size down.
