I’ve been in three weddings over the course of my 27 years on earth and I was lucky enough to not have been forced to wear some hideous dress. All I wanted was for my bridesmaids to be comfortable and to find something they could actually wear again (though, we all know that will never happen, but I had good intentions.).
Being that my bridesmaids are all shapes and sizes, I told them they could pick whatever dress they like as long as they are all similar in length. I had settled on yellow and blue as a color scheme, until I decided that I didn’t like the light blue David’s Bridal had to offer. My only other option was the same blue I donned for my friend’s wedding as her bridesmaid so that was out. I knew a few of my girls weren’t keen on yellow and I’m not the kind of girl to force anything on them just because I had a vision.
Truth be told, I didn’t have much of a vision so it was easy for me to tell the girls to work together to decide on a color. As long as it was light and summery, I could figure out a way to work it into the color scheme of my wedding.
Their dress appointment was the same day as mine and once I had decided on a wedding dress, we all ran off to the racks where they girls pulled an array of dresses in a rainbow of colors to try on.
I have no proof of this, but I think it’s safe to say that this was probably the easiest bridesmaid appointment David’s Bridal has ever encountered. Within about 20 minutes the girls all decided on this knee-length strapless number in light blue. The same light blue I didn’t like on the website actually looked great in person.
The feature that sold them on the dress? The pockets.
Not gonna lie, I’m a little jealous my dress doesn’t have pockets.
