- Wedding: July 2011
The wedding is almost exactly 4 months away and my bridesmaids all have their dresses, I’m so relieved!!! I had it narrowed down to 2, let the hive vote, and then headed to The Limited to try on the last few on, just to get a feel.
A lot of bees thought that the tan dress I really loved would be too short. So, since I’m 6’2″, and my tallest bridesmaid is 5’9″, I figured anything long enough for me would be just fine. I went with my SIL (not a bridesmaid) and my brother and fiance (they sat on a bench outside of the store haha) and loved the dress even more in person. It was a lot longer than it appeared on the website too. I sent the 3 BMs a pic, and they all agreed it would be perfect.
We decided that they’d have until the end of April to get in the stores, try them on, then buy them, or order online with a coupon, whichever they perferred. 5 days ago, I was looking at them online and noticed they were no longer listed! I panicked, after searching the all over the site for them, I found them in the sale section for $49.99 (originally $89.90) so I called all the bridesmaids to make sure everyone knew their size so we could order them. The next day, the website sold out of sizes, so everyone rushed to the store and got them, and found they were marked down to $34.99 each. With their 15% off student discount, they came to right around $30 for each dress!
In the end, it ended up that the bust ran big, so 4 Michigan stores later, and an in between class trip for me in downtown Chicago, we had all the dresses. Now I need to send the 0 I picked up for my Maid/Matron of Honor to her in Michigan, while she sends the 2 she originally bought to the other bridesmaid across the state. At least we’re all from the same hometown, and the wedding isn’t until July. Just another thing I can check off the list early and I’m so happy with the deal they got! Did anyone else score a great deal for their bridesmaids?
