Bridesmaid Dresses: Can I Get Them Custom Made?
Q: I want to design the bridesmaid dresses. I plan on simple, sleek, and black. Is this a good idea?
A: If you truly want just a simple black dress, it might be easier to take your bridesmaids on a trip to your favorite department store and find something ready-to-wear. It may be more trouble than it's worth for you to hire a seamstress, buy the fabric, and put your maids through fittings. It's up to you, but keep in mind that wedding planning will keep you plenty busy without this added task.
