camasaurus asked: Your BM dresses are from ModCloth right? I was thinking about going that route, because I love their style and I'm not a big fan of a lot of the dresses at David's Bridal, but I'm worried about fit... If you did get them online did it work out okay with the girls not being able to try them on first?
It’s a dress made by the company Hell Bunny and they sell it on a variety of different sites - ModCloth, topvintage.nl and many others. I can’t remember which one the girls bought theirs from. I buy a LOT of clothes online, and am used to the routine. I had them take measurements of their bodies and compare it to the size chart on the site (not estimating is key!), and they arrived fitting all of the girls really well.
It just happened to work out that my girls are proportioned in such a way that the sizes worked well for them top and bottom. I personally have issues with dresses needing to be a large because of my hips, when I wear a medium (or occasionally even a small) on top. I can usually compensate alright if I wear a padded bra, but if it’s super noticeable still, tailoring can be done!
And to your bridesmaids and to anyone else online shopping - keep in mind that you should ALWAYS order for your largest measurement, and if it needs to be done, alter!
Anonymous asked: I love your blog! I am having a vintage wedding in June 2013 and this has given me so many ideas! O by the way did you really go with those blue dresses with flowers for the bridesmaids?! I love that dress and it happens to be my bridesmaid dress! Super cute!
If you’re referring to the MayDay dress by Hell Bunny in blue…
…then yes, that is my bridesmaid dress! The girls bought them at the end of April, and just bought petticoats to go with it, which they received this week!
