Bridesmaids Dresses 2/3

Bridesmaids 2/3 as these are A1 and A2. A1 and her boyfriend (who I am calling A3, yes they really are all As) returned from Australia on Saturday morning and famille PeacockFeathers went to Heathrow to collect them. Why is it that their flights always seem to land around about 7am?
.
At some point during the weekend A1 tried on her bridesmaids dress to see how accurate the Skype fittings had been (A1 measuring herself on camera with Mum measuring the dress etc) and found that the dress fitted surprisingly well. A2 thought (or rather, Mum and I thought) she had better put on her dress for comparison and so I took a few photographs.
.
I am unable to post their whole faces at present, which is a shame as they are so pretty, and also for the comic effect of the photo on the bottom right in which A1 appears to be practising her royal wave and A2 simultaneously doing an impersonation of Kate-Moss-as-a-chav-for-comic-relief. What you can see hopefully is that A1 has dark hair and A2 blonde hair. T also has blonde hair and mine is blonde-ish. Hopefully you will also see that my girls look a lot better than the Debenhams model and that I think bows at the back looks better than the front, especially if they are carrying bouquets with ribbons on them.
.
The next stage is of course to get T in her dress and photographed as well. In fact, all three need to meet properly as they have never been in the same place at the same time. Actually, it is January 2007 since A1, A2 and I were in the same place at the same time, so not surprising that the bridesmaids haven't been either. Still, they are all safely home at present, so there is time for the grand meeting.

They look great, the colours look much nicer in your pictures and definitely no straps is better. Oooh it's coming together :)

As 1& 2 certainly look better in the dress and I agree about the bow being at the back. Those dresses are such a great choice. I love that they don't immediately shout bridesmaid.Beautiful.
I'm sure Mummy & Daddy PeacockFeathers are happy to have all their girls home!

Thanks girls, much appreciate the second opinions. I am starting to like the dresses again.

Mummy & Daddy PeacockFeathers are indeed glad to have a full nest again, of sorts (only A1 is back at home now!)

Oh, they look much better than the Debenhams model. Good call on not using the straps and putting the bow in the back.

It's going to look great, especially at your venue. All those gorgeous colors! I can't wait to see all the forthcoming pictures!
