Elizabeth V. writes, "First, let me say that I am addicted to your website! I am getting married in June and have not found any bridesmaid dresses...so I would like to request your help and expertise. We did decide on the color black for the dresses and a simple design, nothing flashy or shinny. Please help! I don't even know where to start. THANKS! Elizabeth"
