I knew from wedding planning day 1 that I wanted my ladies to wear yellow. Especially after our venue was chosen, I wanted to put them in a color that would POP against the green background of the winery’s gazebo.
rgazebo This was also about the time I nixed the color green from our color scheme. There was already so much green surrounding our venue, why would I add more?

So, with my yellow dress mission I hit the internet and started searching for tea-length, flowy, yellow dresses. Oh and I like it to be something they could wear again… I don’t want too much.
My first stop was Watters
watters512Wtoo Style 512 – Sadly this one didn’t come in yellow.
wtoo336Wtoo Style 336 – Comes in yellow and a strong contender.
watters4331Watters Style 4331 – Perfect, comes in yellow, flowy, tea length and I would totally wear this again!
watters4417Watters Style 4417 – I even fell in love with this one and it wasn’t light and flowy.

Next I looked at the very popular J Crew, but oddly they didn’t have anything the piqued my interest, so I moved on…. to Jim Helm, more specifically this Spring 2009 collection.
jh59081Jim Helm Style JH5908 – Unfortunately doesn’t come in yellow.
jh5909Jim Helm Style JH5909 – Also not in yellow 😦
This is when I realized Jim didn’t get my memo and he didn’t have a much yellow to select from, especially not in any fabric I’d want my ladies to wear in August. So where did I go next?
Did you have trouble finding Bridesmaid dresses in the color you imagined?
