I have a black-tie wedding to go to in two weeks, and I need a dress! The bride specifically said that she would “prefer the women in long dresses” which make it a lot more difficult.
Anyone have any suggestions? I’ve been to both Bloomingdale’s and Saks, and I’d like to stay under $350 if possible!

Have you looked at BCBG? They always have a big selection of long dresses for under $300.

well, i’m not really sure what specific advise to give you besides checking out the usual department stores and some of the smaller boutique-y stores. looks like you live in NYC so there should certainly be tons of options.
I LOVE black tie weddings. I’ll take any excuse to dress up!

Dillards has great sales right now – they’re online and have great stuff. also, Macys and your local David’s bridal can be a great savior when you need a long gown in a pinch

Is color ok or does it need to be black?
Neiman Marcus is having a HUGE sale. Many are around $250
don’t forget asbout good ole nordstrom! $350 is a lot for a dress unless you plan on wearing it frequently or it can be converted. I’d er on the less expensive side unless you forsee a lot of black tie weddings in your future =]

@cakegal: I actually did look at BCBG, but the dress I liked didn’t come in my size 🙁 I might try to go to the actual BCBG store this week tho.
@ejs: that adriana pappel dress is beautiful–unfortunately, not my size! But I totally forgot about Jcrew, I’ll have to go there this week as well. Edited to add that colors are good too, I think? I don’t think it has to be black??
@mynn: ooh cache is a good one too! and my aunt is a buyer for them, so maybe I could score a discount 🙂
Thanks for the tips, ladies! Keep em coming!
