So, we left off with me explaining my choice of two different dresses for my ladies:

[Time - Out In case you forgot, the dresses will be a mossy green color. I would post a picture of what Alfred Angelo shows online, but the color is horrible on the web. The only bit of it I've seen in real life is a small swatch of fabric since they don't carry any sample dresses in that color/fabric combination. Ok, time in!]
Remember the things I wanted? Here's how I think I did in keeping these things in mind:
- Budget - ehh... these dresses rang up at $170. The shop we purchased them from offered a 10% discount if the girls paid in full up front, so they ended up getting a small discount after tax. This was higher than I really wanted, but under $200, so I guess it could have been worse.
- Comfort - I haven't tried the dress on, but I think it will be extremely comfortable. There is a lot of support, or so I'm told, for the more well-endowed girls, and the fabric moves really well. I don't think any of the girls will have to worry about sweating to death.
- Versatility - The light fabric and flattering color, combined with a short cut and interesting neckline, SHOULD lend itself well to rewearing. I know, I know. Cue the 27 Dresses quote, right? But seriously, I think I would wear this dress to a cocktail party. It definitely doesn't scream "I was a bridesmaid's dress." At least not too loudly : )
