Awesome website.  They even let you limit your search by style, and they’ll show you all the colors that are available.  Make sure your bridesmaids are professionally measured, and reference a size chart specifically for the designer of your dresses, to make sure you order the right sizes.

Good luck!

Be aware of their return policy – I think it’s 3 days from when the order is delivered to you, and you only get 50% back.  Make sure all your bridesmaids are available to try on the dresses right away when they arrive, just to make sure the dresses will fit or be “alterable” to fit.

If possible, try to find the dress you like in a boutique, and have one of your bridesmaids try it on.  That way you’ll know what the dress looks like on a real person rather than on a model.  That website will surely beat whatever price the boutique is charging for it though.  🙂

Ooh time crunch!  Have you considered taking your BM’s to a store that carries prom/homecoming dresses?  Some of those dresses are toned down enough to wear to a wedding, and if they have all the sizes you need, you can order them all on the spot without waiting for delivery.

Also, consider dresses that have a lace-up back, because that almost eliminates the need for alterations on the waist and bust.  That way even if the dresses arrive very close to the wedding, you won’t be scrambling to get alterations done on them at the last minute.

I actually ordered all our Bridesmaid dresses from Nordstrom.com.  Nordstrom has THE BEST returns/exchange policy (bascially no time cap, and you can return in-store or send back).  They have a wide range of dresses to choose from.  Good Luck!

We bought ours online! They’re an actual bridal store down in North Carolina I believe and have a whole online store. There were so helpful and coordinated everything over the phone with me first and then answered all questions. I spoke with Jeanette.


it says they specialize in plus size bridal/bridesmaids but the carry almost every brand and every single size, not just plus size. I saved my BMs over $50! By far the best price I found online!

We got alfred angelo 7016

I found my girls’ dresses online and they came in and they LOVE them! The website is ariadresses.com. They also have stores on both the east and west coast, but I live in Indiana, so I just went with the reviews I had read. I ended up choosing Aria because I wanted them to wear/buy dresses they could wear again. And, it worked! They all texted me saying they would definitely be wearing them again and that they love them! The fabric is silk shantung so it isn’t at all heavy or stiff! They all got the same color (my choice) but different styles (I let them choose what they would be most comfortable in). Lastly, the website shows that it takes months to get them, but that wasn’t the case for me. From the time I placed the order til they arrived at my door was about 6 weeks! Good luck!

If you’re an ebay user, or willing to be, than this is the seller that I used to buy my bridesmaid dresses. They sell designer dresses for a fraction of the cost. Only problem with them is that they don’t carry every dress in every size, so you have to keep your eye open to find your choice of dress in a size for all of your bridesmaids.

I got After Six #6553 for $60.00 a piece.

I bought a very well made MOB gown from http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz  and I got it within 2 months, although you have to call them if you need it that quickly to make sure they have them in stock.  They have an actual store Rowan Bridal-I think it is in the PA-NJ area if I remember correctly.  They have severa Bridesmaid or Best Man gowns for around $80.00  Long and Short ones, just click on them to find out what colors they have in the style.  I didn’t particularly like the first page of styles-so look around, they have a lot of styles.  I was very happy with my gown, and with the customer service!  Best Wishes.

I bought my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses online at J. Crew and they received them in one week!  There are only a handful of stores that carry their bridal selection but their sizes are pretty much exact to their clothing line.  Also, they sent me a swatch without a problem.  I LOVE their style of clothing and I also love Bridesmaid or Best Man and grooms outfits.  Also, if you order it from a store they pay for shipping!!
