im0502:  try a department store Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sacks, or anything similar to those stores. They have dresses that can pass as Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

I would go to Bloomingdales on 59th St.  They have a huge dress department in lots of different colors.  If you only need one dress, I would absolutely avoid the ‘bridesmaids’ stores.  They will give you the run-around, and a lot of their off-the-rack samples are going to be worn-looking.

+1 for department stores. Some even let you check stock in specific stores. Here are some pretty blush ones that I thought might work for you.

Say hello to CENTURY 21! They carry amazing designer stuff, every brand label in the world you can find there with some digging. I found a Monique Lhuillier bridesmaid dress there for example for half off.

All locations have amazing selection but for the best stuff go to their downtown location at 22 Cortlandt Street

im0502:  I dont think most DB stores sell Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses off the rack, but it wouldn’t hurt to call and check (maybe they would be willing to make an exception if they happen to have your sisters size in stock).

I ordered a DB dress off their website and it was delivered in less than a week.  If it is a color, size and style that is in stock it may arrive in enough time, but not a sure thing.  I think they do have express shipping options though.  Try browsing the site and you might luck out!

There are multiple DB store in the NYC area too if you want to call around.

ETA: I just did a quick mock check out on a dress and these are the shipping options:

Standard: estimated 6-8 business days including processing<br />Two Business Day: estimated 3-5 business days including processing<br />Next Business Day: estimated 3-4 business days including processing

It seems like not all colors of every style are stocked, so click around to find one in her size that’s available (when you choose the size and color it will tell you right on that page if it is a special order).  For an in stock dress right now Standard Shipping Delivery is estimated<br />04/24/2015 – 04/29/2015 so next business day may work for you?

Good luck!

TJ Maxx and Marshall’s have some gorgeous dresses! They have started selling online so browse before going in store.

If it were me, I would go to my nearby mall. There’s a Nordstrom’s, a Lord & Taylor, and a Macy’s.

Good luck, there has got to be something!

Try a thrift store, they may have something.  Otherwise, Boscov’s or another department store is really good, too.
