Why can’t your three friends still get their dresses at the cheaper place in the city?

maybe i missed it, but do you need everyone to order from the same place? assuming there’s no discount for meeting a min. number of dresses, just let your family order from one, and your friends order from the other.

If it is the same dress what difference does it make that someone orders it from one shop and someone else from another? If it is about fabric matching then if they are ordering them in different styles there is a possibility that they would come from different dye lots anyways regardless of what store order at especially if they are made in China because different factories could be in charge of the production of different styles.

If it’s the same dress and the same colour and you don’t want to deal with their issues.. just tell everybody to order from wherever they want.

I was MOH for my best friend, and all the bridesmaids were across the country, so she just told us the style number and colour and told us to order it ourselves from whatever place we wanted.  There was no real issue with dye lots not matching or anything.

That said, it’s just an order… for a bridesmaid’s dress.  I don’t really see why they care that it’s not a fancy place.  It’s not like they’re missing out on the “bridal experience” or something.

If you dont care if the dresses are the same then why do they have to buy them all at the same place? I think I’m missing something.

I’m not sure I understand the dilemma so I can’t really say one way or the other?

@supervixen:  The dye lot thing is pretty much nonsense these days.

@supervixen:  You don’t need to worry about dye because it is all controlled by computers so there is no human error.

@supervixen:  Dye lot rarely matters these days. Only a few few designers still use dyes that differ by lot. And then even when they do, you usually can’t tell.

@supervixen:  Ok you’re upset that your friends want to order the dress you picked out, are happy with and all that, but they want to order it from a cheaper place which you suggested? Am I correct? I don’t blame your friends, they found out they have a cheaper option, via you, and now they would prefer to save the money, being in a wedding is expensive to begin with, you should let them save money if its possible.

ETA: Dye lots wouldn’t matter, these things are done by machine these days, and ordering them all together wouldn’t actually make a difference either, since you have no way of knowing the process the designers use for dying their fabrics. One lot may only make 2 or 3 dresses.

Why doesn’t SIL just go get her measurements taken now and write them down? It might be better for her to wait and see how much her chest grows anyways in the mean time. That is where she will have a big change, especailly if she decides to breast feed. Then you can continue on with the plans you have already made.

I dont think I quite get what the issue is
