I can't wait to see the wedding photos! I was worried this one was a bit revealing so it's good to know that it's easily adaptable and that's a good idea to use the pattern as a summer maxi dress.

Fabulous! You did a great job matching fabric and pattern. I can't wait to see the wedding pictures. You did a great job on that pleating too.

Fantastic! The little pleating tutorial you have in your blog/post is exactly what I've been looking for for ages, thanks so much for a great review, and such usefull tips. And the dresses look fantastic, I hope we get to see pictures of them on the girls someday!

Insert audible gasp 'HERE'. Just beautiful and your comment about curves making the dress, so true! Wish more 'designers' would take that to heart.

I've been watching the progress of these on your blog and it's great to see them finished. I can't wait to see them on G & P for your wedding. For that matter I can't wait to see you in your dress.

Your dresses are just lovely - lovely colours and a gorgeous style. The pleating looks daunting but it is so beautifully executed.

They look very nice even on the hanger. I hope to see pictures after the big event!

You all are STUNNING in your beautiful dresses! Great idea, too, sewing up the bridesmaids' gowns in knit. I would never have thought of that. :o)
