best friends wedding

my best friends wedding is coming up in October!!
That gorgeous mansion on sarasota bay (above) is where the event will take place.  
...i know, i know you are swooooooning!
She's so organized that she's given us a color board and inspiration to pick our bridesmaid dresses from.
what's the opposite of bridezilla?   there needs to be a word for that.  ok, maybe heather ( ;
{1, 2}
these two are the front runners at the moment.  
i am tall and normally i don't shy away from short - it's just a fact of life with these lengthy boney legs o'mine.
but for a wedding?  my best friends?  
i don't want to look like a hooooochie mama.  
not that anyone will be looking my way mind you.
homegirls a stunna.

Soooo here's my predicament.  
I can't find any mustard dresses, not the right shade anyway.    
Favor: if you don't mind, keep your eyes peeled for me.
You could leave me dress links in the comment form if you feel so obliged.
i'd be pleased as punch.


and now ... off to Tuscany!

just have to pay $5 for shipping.


  1. I'm all about the dress on the right. It looks a tad more 'celebratory affair' to me. And you'd be the opposite of hoochie mama in (now if it came in a shiny, poly, lime green then that would be a different story).
    But I'll keep my eyes peeled for you! x

  4. i've been swooning over this dress from anthropologie.

  5. It definitely looks like a great event to come. Dresses colours are beautiful, sure you'll definitely look great!
    I'll have a look around but really the cream dress with the flower on Top is gorgeous!
    Have a great week-end!

  6. i love the strapless two-tone bow dress on the color board!

    also love your 2 f-runners.

  7. so exciting. i love mustard & that mansion is breathtaking!

  8. dress no. 2 is gorgeous and it would look so good on you sadie. i will keep me eyes out for anything mustard. any excuse to take a trip to Georgetown!

  9. gosh! what a good idea about the dresses! i might have to steal it when i get married one day :)

  10. This wedding is going to be beautiful. Try, they have wonderful dresses and I know I've seen some mustard ones. Good luck!


    Love option 1 :)

  12. i LOVE the first one. the light light pink. infact i am about to go stalk it and possibly purchase. let us know what you decide!

  13. i love the mustard and ivory sarah seven dress! my vote goes to that one :)

  14. I love when brides actually make it enjoyable for their guests and family/friends... my sister was a total Bridezilla!

  15. I loveeee dress number two. It's pure perfection. But I will keep my eyes peeled for mustard dresses :)

  16. Love the ivory or chocolate. And dress No. 2 is FAB! Love that she's so open about the colors, length, style, etc of your dress! Definitely opposite of bridezilla. Have fun, my dear, and I will keep my eyes peeled :)


  17. I love that you'll all get to wear your own dresses but in the same color scheme! It's going to look so cool! I love a fall wedding!

  18. Oh my! Yes yes yes I'm definitely swooning over that mansion! How fun. I was so young when I got married that I didn't even think to look at mansions... I wish I could marry my husband every year to try out new themes ;)

    - Sarah

  19. holy gorgeous!! that wedding will be stunning. love her color palette. the dress on the right is a total winner, but i'll let you know if i find any fab mustard ones!


  20. So nice that she gave you options! That's a really good bride! When husband and I go around Europe, I'm so writing you an email to ask for tips! You've got the best pics! Have fun in Tuscany and great weekend! :)

    xo, Ana

  21. no leads, but this looks GORGEOUS!

  22. I'd go for the one shoulder dress. It's so beautiful! It'd look great on you. Plus, it's slightly edgy but feminine? Haha... I don't know but it's perfect!

  23. absolute perfection. Cannot wait to see the pics from that wedding. and the dress you pick out!!

  24. WOW. that is going to be an incredibly beautiful wedding. is she having rifle do her invites?! ah! amazing! i wish i could work on weddings like these...

    i reaaaally like that dress on the left! i'll keep my eyes peeled for mustards :)

    have fun in tuscany!

  25. perhaps the etsy seller would let you choose a custom solid rather than floral?!

    i really like these dresses. they're a bit too pricey for me, but i feel like it would be a lovely investment ;)

  26. Love the one shoulder dress on the right!
    You mean you are off to Tuscany as in Tuscany Italy?! Ugh I hate you! lol

  27. that #2 dress is sooooo you!! love the color scheme, the wedding is going to be one gorgeous affair!! xoxo
