My bridesmaids had all decided on a dress within their budget and our goal was to order in September. Just found out today that they were discontinued yesterday. It’s about 9 months away from the wedding and it’s back to the drawing board. Below is a picture of After Six 6273 which is the dress everyone WAS going to wear. The Maid/Matron of Honor in the pictured turquoise and the other bridesmiads in the color palomino.
Has this happened to anyone else? I’ve started going back through all the dresses I’ve sifted through to get to this one and none of them are that appealing. Any suggestions on other dresses about this length and $150 or under? Our “look” I would have to say is “casual elegance”.
One of the original dresses I absolutely loved was a non-traditional dress that was fun. I absolutely love sparkles! I believe it originally came from Dillards (minus the sashes), but could not find anything similar.
Any suggestions or words of advice would be greatly appreciated! I’m not too worried about having to find another dress, but it took me so long the first time and I’d still like to be able to order in September. I just need to not be so picky!

I really like the ones you are looking at now! Everything happens for a reason, you will definitely find some great dresses in time! No advise, just encouragement 🙂

OMG!!! I had the same experience. I was going to have my bridesmaids order the after six style 6579 but as of aug 30th it will be discontinued. So what I plan on doing it just ordering my dresses from davids bridal(whare i got my dress from). In a way its better bc now we get to see how the dresses will actually look on them, so I agree with seashells7 everything does indeed happen for a reason. Hope everything works out for you.

Wedding Shoppe Inc. has them here for $119, and it says they’ll be discontinued on the 30th.

@vorpalette Are they a reliable website? I noticed that they said 8/30, but then on weddingtonway.com it said the 18th or 19th and it has been removed from their website. Can you only order up until the 30th on the weddingshoppeinc.com? I would just hate to move the deadline for ordering sooner, when I told them to order by the end of September.
@FoxyBride14 Love the first and last one!

@alevesque2000: thanks! I probably would have used one of those had my girls wanted long dresses.

Just an update (my bridesmaids are awesome) the girls found a dress! They decided to go with Alfred Angelo 7172. And under $100!

@alevesque2000: Very pretty, and it looks like it is a style that will look good on all shapes and sizes. 🙂

@creativeplannertobee I agree. I think it will look flattering on all of the girls!
