I went shopping with my lovely BM’s and after much deliberation, everyone liked one dress. It is a Venus BM1305, it is shown in turquoise, but I would order it in green. My dilemma is the dress is $185.00 at the bridal salon which is pretty steep for some of my BM’s (one has even voiced to me that is too much, so I feel bad making them spend that). I was hoping to find a dress for around $120 to $130.00. The dress is not a popular brand so I can only find it on these two websites:
Has anyone had their Bridesmaids purchase from thewasonline.com or topbridaldress.com? If so, what was the experience. I am a very nervous bride so I do not want to end up ordering online and then have a bad experience with it!
Ordering online will save them around $40.00 vs. buying it at the bridal salon that I trust. What should I do?

Did you try a place like RK Bridal? They have a very wide selection, a real storefront (in NYC) but also sell online, so you basically save the price of commission.
You’d have to call though, their website is horrible, IIRC.

call rk bridal and pearl’s place. their prices are usually cheaper than most places, and you still have real people to talk to in case there’s a problem.

What about a dress like this one, and you could add a sash with the floral embellishment? It would still be over $100 per girl, but the sash could be worn again with other things!

Have you tried contacting RKBridal in NYC? They have free shipping -last I called- and have a 5% price match policy.
I’ve also recieved great prices from Netbride.com. They do carry Venus Bella, just email them the model # for a price quote.

Thanks for all of the suggestions so far, it really helps.
I have not checked out RKBridal yet, but definitely will. I emailed NetBride.com for a quote.

SOLVED- Netbride.com came through with a price of $127.00. I have heard great things about them, so I think I am going to go for it.
