These are the dresses my BMs picked from Aria bridesmaids. The girls chose their own knee length style, in the silk shantung purple color shown here.
The dresses came in a month early, and they look beautiful! The pics definitely don't do it justice. Two of my BMs said theirs were a little tight, but said it might just be due to newlywed weight gain, not the dress makers themselves. :) The girls all received their dresses on the same day.
Groom and Groomsmen
The GM are wearing Calvin Klein shadow stripe tuxes from Men's Wearhouse. Their vests are a darker gray color with a matching tie, and John's is a platinum silver, with a slightly darker silver tie. His vest and tie are also in a different pattern than the GM. The best man may wear his dress blues, since he is in the army.
This is a Calvin Klein dress I found at the Steamtown Mall in Scranton, while killing time inbetween wedding appointments. It just caught my eye, and was 75% off! It's a brocade fabric, and mine is actually in ivory, I just couldn't find a picture of it in that color.
Maggie Sottero Limited Edition
I found my Maggie dress at Bella Couture, in Newburgh, NY. I never would've picked this one myself, one of the ladies working there suggested it near the end of my appointment. There aren't any pictures of this on the MS website because it's limited edition and isn't sold by every bridal store.
These are pics from my second fitting, as I forgot my camera for the first one! My MOH's mom is a fantastic (professional) seamstress, and I spent a lot of time looking at wedding dresses spread across her house over the years. My turn! Please ignore the ridiculous expressions on my face. It was the day after my bachelorette, and I was way too excited for this. There's also a bustle pic. We're fixing it a bit more, but that's the basic idea of it.
