So I have been searching for far too long for long black bridesmaid dresses. I have an idea of what I am looking for but am slowly losing hope that I will ever find something. So I am turning to the hive with hopes that all of you ladies can send me some inspiration. Here is some of the criteria I have created:
I am looking for long and black because we are having an evening wedding and we really wanted the formality that comes with long dresses.
I would prefer to stray away from sweetheart necklines and cap sleeves because I don’t want it competing with my dress (I admit I want a little of the focus on me 🙁 )
My gown is a mixture between A-line and mermaid. So I am OK with a fuller skirt, but I dont want ballgowns for the bridesmaid dresses.
And finally, (as if this wasn’t enough) I am trying to keep costs as low as possible and get the dresses as quickly as possible. We only got engaged two months ago, but our wedding is in four months!
Thanks for all the advice in advance! This site has become my wedding Bible!

Have you looked at Macy’s or any other department stores? I think it’s almost prom season, not that you want prom dresses, but you might luck out!
This is the only one I found on their website.

shopnordstrom.com, womens, dress shop, bridesmaids (or try some of the other categories), and the sort by color = black.
You can probably negotiate a discount, but these were all around 100. They are similar so if some people want straps… the other one has runching (universally flattering).
These next ones are more expensive, but so stunning!
There are a lot of nice ones with sleeves too. Good luck!

this one is only $70 at target… cute, romantic/retro feel.
this one is $90 at target…
this one is $130 at target… i like this one a lot!
and my least favorite, but also an option: $160 from target. 🙂
we ordered our Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from target, and are extremely happy with them – they’re well made, and look great. 🙂

oh, another bonus to target: everything is easily returnable to your nearest store when you order online. 🙂
also try jc penney’s, macy’s, etc. – it’s definitely getting to be prom season, so there should be a lot of long black dresses out there. 🙂
