The Bridesmaid dress

Marsha, Lara, Christie, Jennie, Lesli, Rachel, Emily, Lindsey, and Melissa!!!! YAY!!!!

The countdown to the wedding has begun......226 days to go!!!! I have heard from each of you and you have graciously accepted my invitation to be in the wedding! THANK YOU SO MUCH! It means a lot to me! and good news! I have picked out the bridesmaid dress!!!! If you want to see it, go to:
The color I chose are the colors shown on the model on the website and on the model below (--thanks Lesli). BISCUIT with a mango sash. WHAT DO YOU THINK? My sister and Lesli really liked it!!! :)

It is a Jim Hjelm dress and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! Tell me what you think :) All bridesmaids should have their measurements and the size they would like to order for the dress by MARCH 1st. (earlier if you can!!!) We will need plenty of time for the dress to come in, for me to get you your dress, and for you to get it altered if necessary.

The only problem is that they are kind of pricey....but the good news is that I found it for $192 no tax in North Carolina where my sister lives. (That's about $70 cheaper than what I was quoted at other stores in both TN and VA)

I want to ask each of you to go to a bridal store in your area that carries the dress....try it on. Ask to be measured and then let me know which size to order for you. I will order the dress from the store in NC and have it shipped to me. Then I will get your dress to you so that you can have it altered and such.

For you taller ladies (5'8" and taller), you can request length to be added when you order the dress that was it wont be too short. (i think it is about $15 extra to do so)

The style number is JH-5678 (that's a Jim Hjelm dress from the occasions collection)

Lara, Melissa, and Lindsey: We can go to this bridal store in Virginia together over Christmas if you would like.
The Bridal Closet Vienna, VA USA 703-242-2870

Christie, Rachel, and Emily: I would suggest the bridal shop listed below. They carry the ENTIRE line of Jim Hjelm dresses.
Faccio Bridal Franklin, TN USA 615.778.9437

Jennie: This bridal shop in Cincinnati also carries the full line so they should have the one
Bridal & Formal Cincinnati, OH USA 513-821-6622
Lesli: You have seen the dress. Just let me know which size you decide on and I will order it.

Marsha: You can just get yours at Bridal Mart on your own where you tried the dress on.

I am looking into the shoes. They wont look right unless we get dye able shoes to match the dress. I will let you know soon about those.

As I am sure you can tell, I am so excited about this! Please let me know by March 1 about your size for the dress. That should give each of you plenty of time to go and try it on and get measured!
Remember, you can order it longer if you need to.
I go wedding dress shopping on Sunday with my Mom in Virginia!!! I will update after that!!!! :)
stay tuned...
