Go to different Web site’s of bm dress makers, they have lists of the cities and locations they have representatives in. Justin Alexander, for example, there are three or four stores in town that I could check out their bm dresses at. I’m sure you will find a few makers to choose from.

Bill Levkoff is affordable and almost all bridal places carry them. They can be tried on in store and ordered online through bestbridalprices.com which offers discounts. Target just started a wedding line as well. They have a great return policy and dresses are typically under $70. They are versatile simple and range from 2-28  It depends on what you are looking for.

We are considering the convertible dress, or infinity as some may call it. I’ve just commented on another thread about them & where you can get them from…

I was in the same boat and used alfred angelo.  It worked out fine and there were AA stores in each of the girls cities.

Alfred Angelo is similar to David’s Bridal in price and I think they have locations everywhere.

I was in the same situation, brides from all over the country & all different sizes including plus sizes. I went with Mori Lee as they are available in stores nationwide & come in a wide a variety of styles/colors. They’re also some of those more affordable in price range compared to most of the other lines. The style I chose was $140 (more than I wanted To have them spend but better than many of the alternatives I found)!

My bridesmaids live in a different country to me, so what I did was bought some fabric and sent it to them to get their own dresses made by a seamstress. They got to choose their own patterns, but if you wanted more control you could give them a list of preapproved patterns to work with. It’s surprisingly not as expensive as I thought it might be, so probably doable on that budget, or next to nothing if any of your BMs are handy with a needle.

A good place to start when looking for patterns is http://sewing.patternreview.com. It lists tonnes of patterns, many of which have reviews from real users.

Hope that helps!

I liked Alfred Angelo the most. I looked at David’s Bridal and it was okay. Ultimately my girls choose their own dresses with instructions of exactly what I wanted and a pintrest board for what I was looking for. I asked that the dresses be black, knee length and cocktail. Everyone ended up going with a dress off of my pintrest board.

I’m in the same boat.  My 4 BMs are in 3 different States.  My MOH is leading the bridesmaids dress search.  She has great taste so I know she’ll pick something good and she’ll send me the final picks once her and the BMs decide.  I sent them links to Alfred Angelo, David’s Bridal, Ann Taylor and some infinity dresses on Etsy.  I looked at JCrew but I thought their dresses were too expensive.  I don’t care that much about what they wear though, as long as they wear dresses that are the same length/color and all feel comfortable!
