I am trying to decide on dresses for my bridal party and I was hoping that you ladies would have some advice. I am having a difficult time finding something that works but I feel like I keep looking in the same 5 places.
There are only 11 weeks until the wedding so if we order typical dresses we will have to put a rush on them so while this is a doable option I would rather find something off the rack.
I am looking for something knee length or tea length in navy blue, preferably strapless. I don’t mind having three different dresses or even 2 and 1. I would prefer to keep it under $150 each before alterations.
Of course all three girls have very different body shapes– actually, as I think about it, they hit the three big ones, apple, pear and hourglass. Except the hourglass of the group is like a 34Dirty Delete… so deep v’s tend not to work too well since she has to go up several sizes and then alter the rest of the dress down in those instances.
Thank you so much!

i went with my bm’s to zara this past weekend. we picked out a variation of a black shirt dress with a slightly poofy skirt. They loved it and it was about $130. If there is no Zara near you, i would try H&M, Loehmann’s, Macy’s or Nordstroms. We even checked out Forever 21, but it was a bit too young. Oyea, and we even found a contender at Banana Republic, but we thought the Zara one was cuter.

Ann Taylor! I’m in a wedding next month and we got our dresses online (free shipping and returns!) and they were on clearance for like 55 bucks. http://www.anntaylor.com/catalog/department.jsp?N=1200042&categoryId=193′ defer=’defer Go to the sale section, because they’ll be cheaper. Just make sure you order them all together, because if they run out of a style in between orders, you’ll be stuck.

You have to check out JCrew wedding line. There are some goregous dresses in Navy and a ton of different styles. They make me want to change my colors they are so cute!
I got mine through Jcrew and they were inexpensive and very easy to work with since you can return sizes that don’t work to the store.
