if you want online, you can try Azazie.com.  They have beautiful dresses, will send a sample for $10, and offer custom sizing

Nordstrom carries a lot of bridesmaid dresses.  That’s where my girls got theirs

Azazie and Dessy have a million color options! You can also order swatches to make sure everything blends. All sorts of styles and shapes to fit every body type.

We did David’s Bridal. Their dresses were on sale. They were less than $150 and it’s one of those convertible dresses that can be worn several different ways, which was appealing.

I used Azazie for my bridesmaids dresses and so far I’ve been so happy with them!  I ordered color swatches to choose the color (it was really nice being able to do that).  If you’re doing different dresses, you’re also able to create a showroom and add your bridesmaids to it.  I did that, and then let the girls choose which style they wanted from the ones I selected.  The dresses all came in quickly and looked great!

As for sizes, you can either choose from S, M, L, etc. or the girls can put in their custom sizes, so they shouldn’t have to get them altered other than the length.  Azazie makes sure there is PLENTY of length on the dresses to accomodate everyone, so most likely, they will need to be altered shorter!  Hope this helps!

This is a stock picture of my sister’s Maid/Matron of Honor dress for my wedding. It’s from Lulu’s and was $64. I don’t think she’ll need any alterations. I’ve seen people on here mention using ASOS too and I like ASOS in general so that might be another option. Of course these options might not be ideal if you’re thinking of places that offer discounts on alterations but just a thought πŸ™‚

Nordstrom does free alterations up to $100 in a calendar year if you buy the dress there and have a Nordstrom card.

I used Dessy.com for my girls.  You can find codes for dresses and fabric swatches. The dresses are also available at brick and mortar bridal salons across the country.

Azazie is amazing! My bridesmaids ordered through them without a hitch. They were only $99, and quality wise was so much better than Davids. Most Bridesmaid or Best Man companies have the same dresses, they just change little things about them.

sunsetsnmargaritas :  Sorry for so late! My maids did regular sizing and then got them fitted here! We were just worried if they were a bit off since a person would be doing them by hand. Try ordering a sample dress and have your maids come try it on!
