brereuther :  Half of the things for my wedding (including my own dress!) were from Etsy, but we went with ASOS.com for our bridesmaid dresses. Very affordable and a ton of not super “bridesmaidy” options, free shipping and returns 🙂

brereuther :  do you like adriana pappell gowns? because while the price point on most of them is between 200-300, she als has frequent sales. i had 5 bridemaids, and 3/5 of them spent $200 or less on their AP. the other 2 spent closer to $300, but they also re-wore the dress as a Bridesmaid or Best Man gown in another wedding within a few months of mine, so they didn’t mind the slightly higher price tag

 I ordered a dress from Renz Rags. I was going to wear it as a wedding dress. The dress was horribly ill-fit though. I have zero complaints about the quality and customer service though.

brereuther :  both. one Bridesmaid or Best Man bought one from AP directly; another from Nordstrom; and one from Macy’s. I also remember BHLDN putting several AP dresses on sale. I remember AP having some good holiday/post-holiday sales. Since your wedding is a ways away still, it doesn’t hurt to check back every few weeks to see what strikes your fancy.

ETA: DH’s groomswoman was also in an AP dress that she paid full price for – which she fully plans to actually re-wear in the future. fwiw, several of the women in our wedding party would have been more than happy to pay full price for the gown because they actually liked them (i gave them a color range and told them to pick whatever), and they can actually see themselves rewearing the gown. on the other hand, i was just a bridesmaid in another wedding and had to buy some awful polyester jersey mint concotion that, while it was only about $140, felt like such a waste of money because i dontated it right after the wedding. i would have happily paid twice as much for a dress I could pick out that I liked.

brereuther :  and here’s some pics, just so you can see the result. groomswoman wore a grey AP dress (so same style as Bridesmaid or Best Man, but in grooms color).

brereuther :  haha I’ve totally found myself looking at the girls gowns and getting jealous that I don’t have one (;
