How about going an uncoventional route? Like pretty sundresses from Target?  I kinda wish that is what I had done!

can they be saved with a sash to cinch them in?  Or a cute girlie cardigan…or something? 

Have you tried contacting the vendor who sold them to you? what did they say? If a seamstress cinches them in can that help them.

I’ll put on my thinking cap….Don’t cry- there’s always a solution.

Hi!  I’m so sorry to hear about your situation!  You can try going online to nordstrom.com; they always have sales for dresses and they ship fairly quickly too.   Or you can try davidsbridal.com.  They have a sales section with nice dresses that you might want to try looking at too.

Do  you have a picture of the bridesmaid dresses?  What sizes do they come in?  I might be interested in purchasing them from you.

I got my pink bridesmaids dresses from Ann Taylor and they are wonderful!  They are on sale right now for $118 and if you sign up for emails you can easily get a coupon for additional discounts.

Ann Taylor is having a dress sale right now as well.  They have four dresses on sale that come in various shades of light pink:

Can you send the dresses back?  Check the return policy quick!  I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you can.

Can I ask what online vendor you got the dresses from?

I also live in Toronto and happened to see some pale pink dresses at the Winners at Front and Yonge on Saturday.  They were Calvin Klein and looked like a silky satin material.  They were 79.99.  Only thing is that I only noticed sizes 4 and 12, but I didn’t look that carefully.  There were definitely 4 or 5 there in that colour and style. It might be worth a look.

They were similar to this style (not the same) but pale pink.  Best of luck!

I just found this cute soft pink lace slip dress at target for only 34.99. It looks like it would be simple, and best of all, super-cheap! You could probably even afford to buy some fuschia ribbon to wrap around the waistline to keep with your original colors, and maybe if you get really lucky, some cute fuscia shoes? I found some cute ones at target here and here. I don’t think the Target website ships to Canada, but I do know they ship very quickly, so maybe you could have them shipped to a friend in the states, and then shipped to you? 

Hope I could help!

Washing silk tends to dull the sheen, maybe you could try hand-washing them in Woolite and see if it takes the shine down enough?

dying them brown might be a safe bet…and you could buy a sash in pink..or if any of you know how to sew you could make them by buying the sash fabric (satin, silk).

Also, check any Fabricland they usually have tuts on how to do stuff like dying fabrics.
