Let me tell you- I am a girl on a mission when it comes to having the PERFECT color for my Bridesmaids... and am I glad I didn't settle for a color I really didn't want because I found it!  Apple Green has been a pain in my a$$ to say the least, but I finally found the right shade and I LOVE it!  I have 3 bridesmaids and I am going to let them each pick one of these dresses.  These are Alfred Sung by Dessy in Appletini!

Take that, Granny Smith!

All of the ladies wanted the same dress- but I picked a strapless one for each of them and let my MOH have the one they all wanted.  I didn't want things to be matchy-matchy.  They look adorable together!

Update:  The dresses have arrived- they are so pretty!!  They are big, that is my only beef.   I ordered them online from Victoria's Bridal Couture and went off of my girls measurements and the size chart from Dessy Alfred Sung.  I tried on my sister's and FH's sister's, because they are pretty close in size to me and they were huge on me.  But they are gorgeous- the perfect shade of Apple Green! :)

I found these at Target for $18.39- they are darker in person than in the pics, which is what I was hoping for. :)

I love this hair flower for the girls:

Update: The flowers above came a week before the wedding and they were purple... I was freaking out!
A fellow PW bride, nikolaiweddings, made these flowers for my girls and shipped them to me priority, all for free.  I love PW women, they are just amazing!!

My sister came over and tried everything on together:

My wonderful mom made Kylie's FG dress!! :)  We were going to buy it, but they were all soooo expensive.  We found the white taffetta on the 50% off clearance at Joann, the liner and organza for the bow was pretty cheap, the pattern was $2.99.  I think it turned out ADORABLE, we just need a petty-coat or something underneath. :)

We decided to take apart the petticoat and sew some to the underside of each tier.  I love it!!

The final look:

We are using fuchsia bengaline linens for our reception tables and using a light pink crush shimmer linen for our sweetheart table. We will use light pink satin napkins for the big tables and fuchsia satin napkins for our table. The cake table will also have light pink crush shimmer linen. I can't wait to see the mock-up!

All items come from a smoke-free, clean home.

The dress is beautiful, it is perfect for a girl who wants something between an A-line and Ballgown style.  You cannot find this dress in stores as it was a Style Preview dress. If you want a fuller skirt, all you would need to buy is a crinoline and it would be PERFECT!

The gown is a size 4 and I am a street size 4, so it rings pretty true to size.  My waist is 27" - it would probably be ok with anyone with a 28.5" or less waist, and my bust is 33" (I'm a 34 B) and there is plenty of room in the bust area for a larger-chested girl!

The dress has not been altered at all, I am 5'4 and even with 5 inch heels on it is a little too long.  It is extremely light-weight for a wedding dress, too.

Size 4, David's Bridal Style Preview dress- New With Tags- in white with silver beading. The dress is made of tulle, and has a sweetheart neckline and ruching on the bodice.  It does not have a train, so no worrying about getting a bustle!  Brand New- Only been worn to try on.  Retails for $699.  Asking $350.

I have a pair of Size 8 shoes (I wear a 7.5 to 8, depending on the make) by Michaelangelo- Gail- from David's Bridal.  They are white satin with beautiful silver beading and rhinestones on the straps.  I believe they are a 2.5 inch heel.  Brand New- Only been worn to try on.  Retails for $59.  Asking $30.
