Anna Elyse Bridesmaid Dresses

Another bridesmaid dress post! Here are a few things I love about Anna Elyse's bridesmaid dresses:
  • Neckline variety - and not just your basic strapless/halter/v-neck options!
  • Silk Dupioni - I adore the natural texture of this silk.
  • Availability - Carrie Karibo Bridesmaids in Cincinnati... I swear that's a coincidence! I didn't mean to post TWICE about dresses available in Cinci's bridal district, but these were too pretty to not share with you!

And here are the collections (all collections can be seen here):

{From top to bottom: Grace, Simplicity, Audrey, Clarissa, Short Jackie O}

I am a HUGE fan of brides who give their bridesmaids options, especially if the bridesmaids are purchasing their own dresses. As a former bride, I really wanted to find a dress that my bridesmaids would want to wear again.

The best way to do this, in my opinion, is to pick a designer and let your 'maids choose a dress that suits their body type and that they are comfortable in. You could go a step further and choose the length (long or short) and even a color... OR you could choose a color family and let your 'maids choose a color in that color family (how beautiful are the colors in Anna Elyse's collections above?!).

Either way, your best friends in the entire world get to have a choice, which I think is important during a time when all of the spotlight is on someone else (i.e. YOU).

Hi Mackenzie,
I just e-mailed Carrie from Carrie Karibo Bridesmaids to see if she can provide a price range for the Anna Elyse dresses. I will post her response in another comment! Thanks for reading!

Just heard back from Carrie Karibo - she said that Anna Elyse dresses vary in price depending on length, neckline & the number of dresses ordered. The overall price range is $250-350. Hope this helps!!
