Ok bees, please make me feel better about this!
I bought bridesmaid dresses online last night, without even telling my bridesmaids! One of them was consulted, and I admit it was a ‘heat of the moment’ type of thing. It was the deal of a lifetime, seven dresses that were never worn at $50 each, from a great brand and its the color I have been searching for.
Did anyone else do anything similar? How did your bridesmaids react?
I know that this is supposed to be a ‘bonding experience’ of sorts but to be honest, its hard to work around 7 people’s schedules, and I thought that they would appreciate only having to pay $50 for a gorgeous dress. I haven’t told anyone but the one Bridesmaid or Best Man who saw it already and she said to go for it. I’m waiting for them to arrive before I begin to figure out how to break the news to them.
Any advice out there? Words of encourgament??

Lol, i did the exact same thing. Ebay….gets me every time. I got my wedding dress there too 😀
anyways, i found the dresses i liked, for a GREAT price ($20 a piece) so i just ordered 1small 1med and 1large. I know that the small will be my Maid/Matron of Honor, however i have 1 bridesmade who is a litle larger and i inteded the large to be for ther and the medium for the other girl. well, i guess BM#1 thinks she will be a medium, which she most definatly is not. LOL, all i can do is laugh.. and hey, the dresses come without tags so even if i do hand her a large she will never know….

I did it with my own gown! I never expected to find it, and no one was there but my MOH! Still dont regret it, becuase I went back two weeks later to try it on for my mom and it was GONE! So lucky me, I had ordered mine before someone came in store and bought the sample!
Sometimes you have to move in quick to get what you want! Im sure your BM’s will understand, and if youre paying for them, they really shouldnt care!
You cant beat $50!!!

I’d love to see the dress! I didn’t really put much thought into the dresses for my BM’s. I just thought about the length, the color and the price. Once I found one that fit the criteria, I told my girls to order them whenever they could. A bonding experience would be nice, but it wasn’t realistic in my world. Its something a lot of people don’t end up being able to do. I think saving money is the most important thing at this point. So you got a great deal, take the girls out for a drink instead! Lol.

@nicoleashlee05 Congrats on your dress and thank you for making me feel better! The girls are actually paying for the dress which is why I wanted to make sure that they weren’t too expensive. When I saw that I could get them gorgeous dresses for only $50 and without the hassle I just took the opportunity!
@jenniferespos I’m going to take some pics when they arrive- my sisters will be the models =) Good idea with taking the girls out, we are celebrating after all!
