We Have a Winner! My Bridesmaid Dress Is On the Way!

I’m going to be a bridesmaid in August for my younger sister, yay!  But that means that I need a dress.  Earlier today, my roommate, Mandi, and I met my younger sister at David’s Bridal.  We stalked our kill like the great huntresses that we are.  ;-)  And we found a winner!


If you remember, these were the ones I thought I liked the most:


The Winner

But we tried out 3 of the 4 of those (the ones they had).  Specifically, I was able to try on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th ones if you look at them left to right.  On me, they just weren’t very flattering.  But all was not lost!  I tried on 2 or 3 more and found it!  Here’s the one we ended up ordering!

Bridesmaid Dress

It looked elegant and awesome on my body type.  Plus it is full length just like my youngest sister’s, so we’ll match fantabulously!  I am so excited!  Whoo-hoo!

What have you been up to today?  :-)

  • What a beautiful colour! My favourite actually. I love that you had so many different options to choose from. I love the hemline on #4 and the way it ties behind your neck. Straps always slide down off my undefined shoulders. The one you choose is gorgeous.

  • Love the color and the neckline – so classy!

    I absolutely I had to leave you a comment. I was going to write a comment on your other post about how to save a ton of a bridesmaid dress from David’s Bridal but you got your dress before I could. It turns out we will be wearing the same dress at our sister’s weddings!!!!!!!!

    Anyways,here is my post I found out that most David’s Bridal Bridesmaid’s dresses are available on eBay for around $25!

  • @jolie, thank you – I think it’s a gorgeous color too. And yeah, my sister has definitely been a really sweet bride.

    @Lisa E, I agree. :-)

    @Ney, great minds think alike!!! And congrats! And thanks for the tip! I just popped over to Ebay and am sort of happy they don’t have this one (Style F12732) in Oasis blue in a size 16, LOL (by the way, I hate bridal sizes – they lie, hahaha). But we did get it on special for $119, so yay. But wowza on your deal and congrats again!!!
