My sister is getting married at the end of July, and I am her maid of honour and my younger sister is the other bridesmaid. There is only one problem... we are having trouble finding bridesmaid dresses that are not too "bridesmaid dress-y" and that flatter curvier girls. The budget isn't a huge issue but under about $250-$300 would be awesome (and the lower the better)! Both my sister and I are about a size 12-14. My sister (the bride) doesn't really care what the dresses look like as long as they are light purple/lavender and "cute". We are hoping to find something that is fashionable and flirty and young (we are only 18 and 20)... but not too short (knee length or longer would be good) and not something too riskay. Definitely not a fan of puffed sleeves/ shiny satin either. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this! You guys rock!"

"Fashionable, flirty and young." Do you have any idea how much fun it was to look for this dress? Nordstrom's was a gold mine as they seemed to have you and your sister in mind with their spring designs. We hope one of these works perfectly for you or simply gives you a better idea of what you really, truly want. We hope you look smashing at the wedding!
