Beautiful Bridesmaids

I started planning my wedding while I was working for Disney World. My husband asked me to marry him a few weeks after I got my acceptance letter for the Disney College Program. (Ask me about it, if you're interested. It was FANTASTIC.) I worked with a wonderful wedding planner who went to church with me while I was growing up. I wanted something like an elegant family picnic. That included my bridesmaid dresses. I wanted something nice that my girls could wear again. We searched forever and only two weeks before the wedding we found their dresses at Kohl's. My friends loved their dresses and I've seen all of them wear it multiple times since then.

I wish I'd known about Zulily or Modcloth before my wedding because they would have been the perfect places to find elegant, wear-again dresses. Maybe you aren't looking for a bridesmaid dress, but maybe you will sometime eventually, or know someone who is and I wanted you to have the resources I didn't. These dresses are also perfect for your mom closet. You never know when you may need to dress up for a date.

1. This dress would have been absolutely perfect for my wedding! All it needs is a little jacket to cover the shoulders. I love how grown-up it looks and still has a print.

2. Ah! This one is absolutely stunning. Lace anyone? I would have gotten it in a blue for my wedding, but this soft pink is so incredibly feminine that I think I might have changed my colors just to fit it in.

3. I love the different neckline on this dress. The white belt is so flattering. I think it would look great on everyone.

4. The neckline on these dresses can be tied different ways. It would be perfect to style different body types, or to differentiate the maid of honor from the rest of the girls.

5. This dress is elegant and I love the details on the shoulders. It does look a little like a slip, which doesn't quite work for me, but you could put a lacy slip underneath and then let the lace peek out to add some length.
