I am wondering if anyone has ordered bridesmaid dresses online, specifically from this website:
The dresses I want aren’t available in stores near me, but the designer’s website (Watters) lists French Novelty’s Florida store as an authorized retailer. I am having one bridesmaid check out the dress in a store near where she lives. If it looks as good in person as it does on their website, I am hoping that all of my bridesmaids can just order online.
Has anyone ordered from them? Good experience? Bad experience?

Have never ordered from that site – but my bridesmaids went with JCrew…we have had a great experience with them so far. (free color swatches sent and everything!)

I ordered mine from http://www.pearlsplace.com I don’t have them yet so can’t say if its good or not but Pearl’s place has great reviews and they are always quick to get on the phone I’ve called them a few times. They carry watters so it may be good to give them a call even just for price comparison.

I have one caution to give you on this. Make sure that either all your BM’s have the EXACT SAME body type or have one body type of each try it on. We had one girl go check out a dress, looked great and then we ordered it online before anyone else had a chance to take a look (because they were on clearance and running out of sizes). It turned out that the one small-chested girl was definitely NOT representative of how the dress would look on the more well-endowed ladies.
Much drama ensued. And that’s the understatement of the century.
So in sum, before you buy, check that the dress works on all body types.
