So I actually didn't end up buying bridesmaid dresses from houseofbrides. I had such a horrible expirience with them that I canceled my order and after various emails and daily phone calls for about 3 straight weeks I was able to get my money refunded and luckily was able to order dresses from David's Bridal 4 months before the wedding. Thanks David's Bridal. Great customer service. So the pictures to the dresses are below.

So 4 of my friends picked style #83707 in Marine and my 5th friend picked style #F1308 because she is pregnant. I thought the girls looked beautiful. These are the girls on the big day (I think they are being silly and posing with make believe bouquets.)

Okay so before you guys say I'm crazy-- I had the girls pick their style as long as it was chiffon and cocktail length. Two of my bridesmaids will be wearing dress #2, dress #3 and #4 will both be cut to cocktail length. All the dresses are slightly different but so are my girls. I had to let them pick something that mathced their personalities. I think I will be adding a brooch or something w/ a lil bling-not to flashy to dress up some of the more simpler styles. Oh! and I almost forgot to mention we purchased all the dresses at: www.houseofbrides.com for a fraction of the price. Yay! can't wait. I'll post picts when the dresses arrive. ;O
