I’m an idiot for putting it off for so long in the irrational hope I’ll stumble upon an amazing deal… but I digress. Wedding is October 15 and my girls are spread out pretty much everywhere at the moment, which makes a group shopping trip to try dresses on nearly impossible. Many of the dresses I’ve found in my price range “ship within 10 weeks,” without factoring in alterations cost/time and everything else. So, all of that in mind, I’m trying to find dresses under $150 – preferably closer to $100 – that would get to me within 5 weeks at most, I think. I’m open to getting dresses online from reputable sources, but I refuse to use David’s Bridal (bad experience with my own bridesmaid dress, especially for the cost).
My colors are lavender and sage green – think succulent colors – and I’m thinking of having my girls wear either all lavender or half and half if I can find a good green in my price range! I’ve looked at https://www.henkaa.com/ and a few similar convertible dresses on Etsy, and I also like the flowy chiffon fabric. We’re having an outdoor wedding and reception at an old historic house in Nashville, so it’s fairly casual.
Thanks in advance, bees! 🙂

Maybe check out a place like Macy’s or another department store so they just need to order in their size. It’ll ship in 3-5 days and then they can do any alterations once they get them.

Thank y’all so much! I’ve been looking at ASOS and Modcloth for awhile now watching for the right stuff – Modcloth stock just goes so quickly I hardly have time to make decisions!

J Crew Dusty Shale could be considered a succulent color. Some of them are an extra 40% off and free shipping right now! You could let each Bridesmaid or Best Man choose their own style. They will love you for giving up control and letting each of them choose a great dress at a fabulous price.

All my bridesmaids are spread throughout California. So I feel you on that. I got my bridesmaid dresses from Lulus.com. They are very well priced and they have some gorgeous selections. Shipping was fast to. My girls got their dresses in less than a week. The only thing is stock goes fast so as soon as you see a style you want, call the bridal consultant and she puts the number and sizes of dresses on hold immediately for your girls to order.
