As for the sizing and all, no matter whether you order from a salon or online, your girls do not need to get together for a fitting. Even if you order from a salon, they all go get professionally measured locally. Most bridal salons and seamstresses will do this as a professional courtesy for free, but some will change. Then they send, fax, or call in those measurements to the salon. Do not order based on street sizes or estimates of measurements.

I got a dress once from Houseofbrides.com. Worked fine. Don’t know if they have what you are looking for though.

@BetterSherm:  Just a warning… If you order from Sino-Treasure, they are not exactly true to size.  We ordered Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there for a wedding I was in last year.  Long story short, the bride just ordered my street size (She thought I had told her this is what I wanted).  Based on the measurements listed, I would have gone up one size… But the dress was at least 2 sizes too small.  They have a clause that says something along the lines of… They have 2″ of wiggle room – so if the dress is 2″ bigger or smaller than the measurements listed on the chart, it’s still okay.  Well, we all know 2″ is a big difference!  

Thankfully, my seamstress was able to let the dress out! But it was scary and expensive 🙂 So… Just be very exact with your measurements!
