Bridesmaids: Lady Date

Yesterday, all seven bridesmaids and the moms and even baby Lily (Bridesmaid Amber's newborn!) came all the way up to visit for brunch and to try on dresses! Not only did we get to have yummy breakfast food, we were really able to finally sit down all together and chat about the exciting things about the wedding. I have said before, I am incredibly lucky to be supported by these women. And they all get along beautifully! 

I invited all seven to see if we could decide on a dress, or the dress for the girls on our day. I wanted everyone's honest opinions because, hey --- they're the ones wearing the dress and I wanted them happy, comfortable and feeling pretty!

Definitely something I really wanted to avoid.

So after filling our tummies with yummy brunch-goodness, and after cooing over baby Lily, and discussing some wedding deets, we caravaned to David's Bridal! Of course, I picked a Saturday to do this: one of the most busy days of the week. I'll admit that I did get a little stressed, but with encouragement and love from the 'maids and Patrick's and my moms, I calmed down and we got to work!

There were so many gorgeous dresses, and my bridesmaids are all beautiful (seriously though, they look good in everything --- it was hard to decide on one dress!). Our consultant pulled the sizes in the dresses I had wanted to see, but something new caught the corner of my eye. It must have been from the new round of dresses designed because I hadn't seen it before. It was this little number, I asked our consultant to pull some in the sizes. The girls were great, and tried everything on. Different satins and chiffons, and totally different necklines. Like these:
My sister, MOH in the "Horizon" Blue of our
BM Erica is the first to try on the 'new' dress!

Next, it's BM Abbie's turn!

satin number...
BM Amber looks great!

BM Claire trying out the dress!

Looking sweet, ladies!

If you couldn't tell, this is the dress!
So like I said, we ended up choosing this lovely number in Horizon Blue from David's Bridal! I am so excited, they are such beautiful dresses and the ladies look amazing! I actually kind of want a dress to have as my own! We also got to see my mom try on a dress she liked:

Isn't she gorg???
It was such a wonderfully fun day! I am so glad I was able to hang out with all my best girls and the moms. Oooh! One more thing: BM Amber, besides being a new RN (she got the news at DB!!!) and a mother of three, she makes A.MAZ.ING cupcakes. She brought these as a surprise!

Turtle Cupcakes!
Needless to say, I was a happy happy Bride!
