I am very interested in the alfred sung bridesmaid dresses.
I plan on having my bridesmaids wear the cocktail length dress version–they will all wear the same color–same length–except they will have their choice of deciding the top of the dress.
Now, If I get the bridesmaid’s to order their dress at a bridal salon supposively the dresses run from $180-$200, and they would give me a 15% discount for having my bridal party all order their dress from the salon. So the dresses would be approx $156they said. 60% would be due upfront and then the rest would be due when the dress comes in.
But I’ve noticed online that you can get the dresses cheaper, i’ve seen even $123.
Has anyone had any luck in buying their bridesmaid dresses online? Any recommended websities? Isn’t it strongly recommended not to buy dresses from online retailers? Please help! Thank you! 🙂
Also is $160ish a lot to spend on a bridesmaid dress?

I went through netbrides and ordered the 3rd dress you have pictured, I believe it was 112.00. I haven’t gotten them in yet, but have heard good things about them.

We haven’t ordered ours yet, but we’re looking into Alfred Sung also. I contacted Netbride.com about the last dress you posted. They quoted me at $114 per dress. I think that’s a really good price!
Email them and ask about prices for those dresses. They’ll get back to you the next day.

I ordered alfred sung dresses from netbride at the end of January and received them last Thursday, a month before schedule. The dresses look great, but I still need to see them on my bridesmaids. Hopefully they were all measured correctly. I paid:

if all your maids can order from one store and if that price includes alterations I’d go it it. If not than you should try online. I bought my dress from netbrides and have had no communication problems but do not have my dress yet.

@inamani: I’m wanting my girls to all wear different styles & since you ordered all different styles… I read that there is no guarentee that they will be made using the same dye lot….how does the fabric from dress to dress look?

Hi girls, what did you think of the fit of the Alfred sung dresses? I tried some on with my bridesmaids and they thought they were cute, but that the skirt were really full and made them look bigger… Wondering if the skirt can be altered. Thanks!
