No kidding on what a killing people are making on bridesmaid dresses!!

Just a suggestion, but do you know anyone who might be able to make the bridesmaid dresses on the side for a little cheaper? I know…wishful thinking, but sometimes someone is right there under your nose and you don’t realize it!

My only other thought is if you’re definitely set on the wine colored dresses? If not, you could always try to do black and white and have the wine colored accents.

Sears, JC Penny, etc.  Sears has some right now I think.

I don’t think you will have a problem.  My colour is berry and I have found a fair number of dresses in that colour.  It is inbetween maroon and fushia.  I am getting mine in a bridal store and spening about $200 though.

How much were you wanting to spend?

But I think you shouldn’t have a problem finding some in Sears or JC Penny.

Have you tried Alfred Angelo?  I’m actually looking for the same thing and am loving theirs!

I was trying to spend under $150 — GREAT tip is if you order through RK Bridal in NYC they are the cheapest I’ve found anyhwere…through their no-frills program (where they don’t measure you or provide alterations) the dresses are far and away cheaper than anywhere else. I’ve visited the store more times than I care to admit in my search for dresses and it’s a good place. No need to live in/near NYC if you want to order through them…just call on the phone and tell them the style number.

Now – based off that pricing info – which made dresses I found would otherwise be too expensive to actually be affordable…I looked at the following lines:

– Dessy, Alfred Angelo, Mori Lee, Watters, W2 (cheaper Watters line), Bari Jay, Belsoie and B2 (both by Jasmine…jasminebridal.com), Bill Levkoff

Hope this helps

You might want to look for a seamstress in your area. That way you can get the exact color and material from a fabric store. That is what I did when I realized the dress my bridesmaids fell in love with didn’t come in the correct color. The interesting thing is the woman that I am having make the dresses is doing them for the same cost of the dress we like but now we don’t have to pay for alterations so they are a lot cheaper overall!

This is an old post, so I don’t know if my reply will help but there’s these… short version:http://www.amazon.com/Strapless-Satin-Formal-Bridesmaid-Holiday/dp/B0006VN9EW/ref=pd_sim_dbs_a_6 long version: http://www.amazon.com/Strapless-Bridesmaid-Holiday-Formal-Junior/dp/B000YEIAO0/ref=pd_sim_a_1  The burgundy on seems to match your color really well, and they’re super cheap! We have the short ones in red for our girls, good quality, too!

Mori Lee’s dresses are about $150, a little less. (Get on a bridal shop or two’s mailing lists! I get 20% off offeres all the time!)

Anyway, Mori Lee has a great color called Vintage Merlot. My BMs will be wearing Mori Lee 370. I’m not sure if this is the color, as my monitor is REALLY off! 🙂

I have a contact that makes dresses and men’s shirts (this will ensure the same colour!!). If you book early, there are really good discounts that would fit into your budget. Please contact me for details.
