Does anyone know whether Dessy, etc bridesmaid dresses are made in the U.S.? Or are they from China, like Watters, etc? I’m considering ordering them from House of Brides to be shipped to Canada, so I want to avoid ordering anything I’m going to pay obscene duties on. Thanks for any help!

I’ve been trying to avoid buying stuff made in China and vendors for everything from kitchen utensils to dresses are HORRIBLE about putting the country of origin on items.
My advice would be to go to or call a local shop that carries the dresses you’re interested in and check the tags.
Another things to keep in mind- just because one dress is made in the USA doesn’t mean that another from the same designer will be.
I’ve been shopping for jeans and found the different washes/colors of the same style are made in different countries. So I would check the actual style number you want- not just any dress by the designer.

Thanks for the advice! I’m waiting to hear back from the designer now, but I didn’t think to ask about the specific style number. Blast!
