Brieanna writes, "My friend is having a wedding in January of next year. They are having an Asian themed wedding and she would like to find Empire Dynasty Kimono's in an evening gown type thing. I know it sounds complicated! And this will be for the bridesmaids to wear, she wants them at an affordable price. She would like them to be in a dark blue color. I have a link of the dress she has seen as a reference but us, the bridesmaids, aren't really digging the bow in the front. So any other suggestions that you could find would be so helpful!"
Hi, Brieanna, Janetor here! This was hard. Seriously, there are not that many formal kimono-style dresses out there, let alone dark blue ones. You can always do an Etsy Alchemy request, or maybe a black bridesmaids dress with a color-coordinated Obi sash to reference the theme, plus have the bridesmaids do their hair in an Asian-style high bun? We found a few dresses, mostly on the more casual side (i.e. jersey), though. Maybe one of these will work... Sorry we weren't more helpful!
