    I’m glad you posted about this. My sister and Maid/Matron of Honor is all about high fashion and would rather rent a high end dress. While we still haven’t battled it out to a final decision, I told her I was worried because you only get the dress a few days ahead of time. Plus I can’t ask everyone to spend that money and not even get to keep a dress.

    I am considering using RTR for my bridesmaids dresses.  to avoid the concern that they will come and not fit, I am going to order one a few months ahead of time (you get 2 sizes per order), and since most of my girls are around the same size we’ll see if they all fit in one of those two sizes.  one bridesmaid is in NY and there is a store there where you can actually try the dresses on in person, so she can figure out which size she is there. 

    in addition, since the dresses come with a backup size, we could have two bridesmaids order 1 dress (one can wear the dress and one the backup size dress) and it’ll be only half the price for each person! 

    would love to hear of brides who have tried RTR out for bridesmaids dresses and how it worked out for them.
