that seersucker thread dress is perfect for a summer casual wedding.

I thought of your blog when I saw this on Rachael Ray! 1154 lill studio to make custom bags (with brides maids?) they get a little pricey but not too bad considering you'll have a one of a kind!

Keep up the good work! I love you blog!

So very pretty. What do you think is an appropriate amount to spend on a bridesmaids dress, or rather, ask your friends to spend on thier bridesmaids dresses. I agree $375 is high. Just wondering...

It's funny, my budget for our wedding is in the $10,000 arena, and it's much harder than you would think to stay in that range!! I'm so glad I found your blog - LOVE your humor. And it's okay if you're not even engaged yet.... Your ideas and thoughts are still kick-ass.

Yes, bridesmaid dresses are pretty pricey. I mean, really, unless you let them pick out a cocktail dress (and not a funky-colored one like lilac), they will not wear it again. So, with that in mind, I wanted to stay under $200. Which is kind of hard. If you can stretch to $250, there are more choices out there (the $200 to $250 range seems to be where it opens up). But, the dresses I found are around $160 at David's Bridal. I didn't buy my dress there, but they just have good deals on your basic bridesmaid dresses (of course they have some that are a little pricey too, but for the most part they're inexpensive). I think $160 for a full length bridesmaid dress is pretty good, and it is actually a pretty dress.

Keep up the good work. If I come up with any cool cost-saving ideas, I shall forward them along...
