@lillisc:  FYI, I ordered from keepmeinstitches.biz aka Rowan Bridal  (an online and brick & mortar store in PA).  The dress wasI bought was excellent quality, very well made, and well under $200 for my daughter’s wedding.  You could see if they have anything you like, you would have to call their customer service to see what they have in stock in your color, to order within 2 months time.  Just make sure they get measured properly locally, so you know what size they need.  Here’s one that comes in a red for $79.00 (although I don’t know if it’s a deep red)


This one comes in Dark Red for only $81.00:  http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz/maid1224Dear Fiance.htm

Well, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t say, “Get whatever you want as long as it’s red and you love it” and then say, “Oh wait, except for this fabric and except for this store and except if someone else wants it and except if I don’t really like it and ….” Kinda mixed signals right?

I do think the dress you linked to from Nordstrom’s is very pretty. I say, to reduce drama that you be honest with your BM’s and say you’re not a fan of the one they’ve been discussing, that you’ve changed your mind and really do want more input into the dresses, and that you’d really like them to wear the Nordstroms dress. If anyone is really against it, then regroup, see how many don’t like it and what other options they can give.

In the end, they’ve agreed to be BM’s which generally means wearing the dress you’ve picked. Worst comes to worst you just pull the bride card and make it happen.

@lillisc:  Yes, it was very easy and very good customer service!  Although, if  Customer Service is not immediately available, I believe you can leave a message.  They actually called me back in a short time.   I went to my local dry cleaner/seamstress and had her measure me, and then I called them with my measurements and they suggested the size to buy, and they were correct with my size.  I wasn’t home when the dress was delivered, but I know it took less than 3 weeks to come in.  (I had a death in my immediate family and was out of state for 3 weeks).  Their website isn’t the best, as you have to click on every gown to see what color it comes in-but if you call them, they will tell you what gowns they have in the color you are looking for.   As with any purchase, read their policies. ๐Ÿ™‚
