Elle and Caroline styles, respectively. Made of Silk Dupioni (the best material for special occasions in my book!), these killer dresses could easily be worn after the wedding for a multitude of events. Lula Kate also offers their dresses in about 24 fetching colors ... I chose the almond color in both because that's the shade I would choose!
I also think it's a great idea to look at non-bridesmaid apparel. You can often find just as nice a dress at half the price in finer department and retail stores alike. Below is a Maggy London bubble dress I found at Dillards. I think the simple lines are perfect for a low-key garden wedding. And at $160, it's not a bad deal.
