Bridesmaid Dress Shopping from the couch

I'm as big a fan of Amazon Prime as anyone. Recently I've started taking advantage of their free no-rush shipping which gets me a $1 credit towards Amazon Prime rentals, ebooks, mp3s etc. Enough about that, my point is, I love online shopping. So when I first heard about Kennedy Blue, a new-ish bridal and bridesmaid dress company, and their at-home try on program, my interest was piqued. Let me also add that this is NOT a sponsored post, I just thought I'd pass the word about this company because I've had a good experience so far. My best friend is getting married this summer and she's asked the bridesmaids to find a blush dress of our choosing...easy right? Not necessarily. Enter Kennedy Blue - they have tons of choices, a huge selection of colors, and you can have samples sent to your house to try on at home.

I ordered 3 to try on and about 10 days later they showed up in a box with a huge return envelope, information card, and complimentary measuring tape, as well as a few sample fabric swatches in blush to help me better picture what they would really look like. I have about 45 minutes to kill before we had to finish packing the car and heading to the airport for a quick weekend trip, so I got right to work. Once you're finished you just stick them back in the return envelope and drop them off at a post office, or in my case I put them with the outgoing mail at work.

The first dress was "Charlotte," a sleeveless, V-neck lace dress with a satin sash. The dress was beautiful and well made but was too heavy for an August outdoor wedding.

Next was "Lucy," a short chiffon sweetheart halter. Plus, this dress has side pockets. The crisscross on the bodice made for a nice, cinched waistline.

Finally was "Camilla," almost a happy medium in that the bodice is lace and the slightly above knee-length skirt is chiffon. There's a removable chiffon sash at the natural waistline.

I think I've made my choice, but I'm going to post all three to see what the general public thinks...remember, it's an outdoor wedding in August. I think I have a favorite, but it's one of those things where an outside opinion would be helpful! In the meantime I'm off to get a tan so I don't look naked in whichever dress I pick!
