Shopping for bridesmaid's dresses can be hard--and especially so when the sizes you need range from 2-12!
While dress shopping, I fell in love with Alfred Angelo's line of Bridesmaid Coordinates. I thought it would be great to have my girls in styles that matched their personalities, while still keeping a fairly uniform look.
It may be difficult to tell by the picture, but each girl is wearing a different top. One is a halter. Another has beaded spaghetti straps. One has organza "tied" around the top and flowing gracefully down the back. And my maid of honour is wearning a white top with a little bow around the waist to match the skirt. I chose the skirt and the colour; the girls did the rest, and were all really happy with how their dresses fit. Sadly for them, not all of them are fans of purple. Ah well, what can you do?
The Alfred Angelo coordinates boast 13 skirts and 28 tops in 46 colours! Plus, like my maid of honour, the tops and bottoms do not all have to be the same colour. Nor do they have to be the same size. That's a lot of mixing and matching options! At the end of the day, I'm convinced that this is the best way to get just the right size. Everyone, right down to my size 2, 15-year-old sister, found her perfect fit.
The catalogue prices these at $140 USD per set. My girls paid around $200 CAD for theirs. I noticed that the price varried a bit depending on which bridal shop I ordered them through, so be sure to shop around!
