Hey everyone. I am in a bit of a time crunch (about 3 months) for ordering dresses for my bridesmaid. All of the bridal shops I visit charge an outrageous fee for rush delivery for some dresses. I found quite a selection for fast delivery on bridesmaidexpress.com and was wondering if anyone has ever used this site and what your experieice was with ordering dresses online. I’m looking for Bill Levkoff sytle 454 in a brown/champagne combination.

I did not order my bridesmaid dresses from that particular site, however, I did get them from Nordstrom.com. I found a dress that matched my color scheme (navy) for $98 plus shipping. I thought the price was rather reasonable compared to what I have paid for bridesmaid dresses in the past. Anyway, the dress turned out better than I expected. Plus, Nordstrom has a great return policy so if the size didn’t workout, then the bridesmaids were able to return/exchange it without any problems. Another plus is that Nordstroms offers free tailoring, so my bridesmaids were able to go right to the mall and get alterations if need be.

Yeah, I thought that I would save money by having the girls order their dresses online-In my experience, it has not been worth it. I would say you definitely should make sure they order their dresses now if you do that. Some of mine waited until 2 and a half months beforehand and they all have to pay the rush fee online(about 50 dollars). So with shipping and handling, plus the rush fee, a 130 dollar dress came to about 200 dollars. Not to mention the fact that some of the bigger girls had to pay extra for "women’s sizes". Plus there’s always the fact that some of the girls may not go to a professional to get their measurements and may end up ordering a dress online after guessing their size and have it not fit. Its a nice idea to order online, but in the end, for me, it hasn’t been worth it. Good luck!
