Question for you all, about my brothers wedding

First off, I had to admit, I must of been the WORST Knottie on here.. I am sorry for sucking with correspondence. It is hard for me when I only have a chance to get online at work and I am only in office 3 days a week... So sorry again!Second... I am not a bridesmaid in my brothers wedding but seeing that it is my brother, I am going to be there all day helping, getting pics etc... I am trying to find a dress, what is appropriate and what is not. I feel like I should be a little dressier than I would if I was going to just a friends wedding. Do I stear completely away from their colors, so to not look like a bridesmaid?Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I would go for a slightly dressier dress in a color other than their bridesmaid dresses.  You could still do a short dress, just look for a dressier material/cut.  What color were you thinking of wearing?

    I was thinking of wearing a long length dress, the bms are wearing tea length. But since changed my mind seeing that this will take place all outside and it has the possibility of being very hot... So I guess a cocktail type dress, I am looking at Modcloth. Davids had nothing that I liked...Congrats on the pregnancy, I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months... It will fly by!!! (although it doesn't seem like that now) Best of Luck!!! Thanks for the help!

    For SIL's wedding, I wore a dressier shorter dress in a non-clashing color.  I think it worked just fine!

    My FI was a GM at a wedding and wearing a tux, so I felt like dressing up more. I wore a knee-length kelly green taffeta dress from JCrew and fit right in. Didn't look under-dressed for FI being in a tux and didn't look like a bridesmaid.

    I think that this dress from Modcloth is GORGEOUS - [url]http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Dresses/The+Alix+Dress[/url]   this one's cute too- [url]http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Dresses/Atmosphere+Dress[/url]   also this one but I don't know if it'd hold boobs over a B cup [url]http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Dresses/The+Breathless+Dress+in+Midnight[/url]  I didn't realize how much more stuff Modcloth has now, it's crazy!  There are a lot of really cute dresses that are sold out, unfortunately :(

    If I put a link to a photobucket album would that work or can you only view directly on here?
