Where are you all ordering your bridesmaid dresses from?
I’m going with a black cocktail length dress and thought this would be easy. After we decided on Black House- White Market though, they had sold out of all of the larger sizes for the particular style we wanted.
Sooo I’m now thinking that a traditional bridesmaid dress might be the way to go since we can order in whatever size and they wont be discontinued so quick.
Where are you all getting your bridesmaid dresses from? Any suggestions for a black cocktail length?
Nordstrom’s Wedding section is equally as bad- they apparently only carry bridesmaid dresses in a few sizes each. Boo.

I got my dresses off the rack. If your not stuck on the same style your girls would have a super easy time with Christmas being on the horizon to find a black dress in their size.

Have you thought about having your bridesmaids each find a black cocktail length dress in their size that fits their body type so you won’t have to worry about the dress being discontinued and they can still pick a style that they love and could possibly wear again?

Hey ladies- Thanks for the advice. That was actually my original suggestion- to have them each in a different dress. However, they’ve collectively decided they want to match- but now I’m stuck trying to help them coordinate a single dress for all of them. Blah. I just want to say “I don’t care!” haha.

Either Dessy or Alfred Angelo.

This exact thing happened to me. I told my girls (who by the way were just 3) to just get together somehow and figure out what they wanted to wear and let me know. This did NOT happen. I ended up going through a hassle to get my grandma to make them dresses and one of them didn’t even pay me for her dress. My advice is to say “wear whatever black, cocktail-length, non-slutty dress you want” and be done with it.

I love the dresses by Coren Moore (especially the one called Maggie!) I thought about ordering Maggie for myself just to wear as a guest to a friends wedding, but I would probably shorten it a touch….. or any of the bridesmaid dresses by Amsale. Most of the Amsale styles come in long and short lengths
