The girls said that both dresses were very light and comfortable and would be easy to dance in. The strapless dress is available with straps which is what we would need for the jr. bridesmaids since I don't think strapless is appropriate for a 13 and 11 year old. And the best part is that either of these dresses in black are totally re-wearable to another wedding, holiday party or even fancy dinner. Right now I'm leaning more towards the strapless one.
The only problem with both dresses is that they are out of the price range that I was hoping for, especially since we need to take in consideration possible alteration costs that would be needed. I plan to call around to some other stores that carry this line to do some price comparison and if I can't find either of these exact dresses for less then I'll just look for similar styles from other designers.
It was good having the girls go with me to shop because now I have a much better idea of what looks good on them and what styles they prefer.
