I think if you want a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in a color you KNOW they will never wear again, that you should pay for it, or at least pay the majority of the cost.

>$200 is not reasonable to ask your BM’s to pay.

Could you consider a more wearable color and bring in your HOT COLOR in accents such as jewellery, flowers etc?

This David’s Bridal dress is on sale in their outlet section for $79.99. It is available in all sizes except 10 and 20.

I think that was a good choice to not have them spend that kind of money. Have you tried going to a department store at all, maybe Nordstroms? You may find something you love and not have to worry about getting it in time for the big day.

Those are my colors too! Fuschia and tangerine orange. I originally had coral as a color and gave it up because I had the worst time finding anything the right color. My girls will all be in fuschia with bright orange bouquets (a mix of roses, tiger lilies and gerbera daisies) then my bouquet will be fuschia (roses and stargazer lilies). It’s such a fun bright color scheme. You can stick to one color for the dress then do a sash in the other color maybe. Also my girls are wearing orange lilies in their hair. Lots of possibilities. Jcrew makes a nice cantelope color you might like and their dresses come in fast. Also quite affordable when they run a 25%-30% off sale which they do quite often. Spring colors should be coming out soon so you may be able to find something off the rack as well. Check Nordstroms, Macy’s etc. Did you like the Palm Beach Coral color DB makes? Their stuff comes in quick as well. Good luck.

You made the right choice by choosing to mix the two colours rather than go with coral. I made the mistake of choosing coral (my original colour wouldn’t work) and I regret it so much. Nothing matches and the whole idea is thrown off. Your orange and fuschia looks amazing and you made a good decision!

I used netbride and it worked out great.  Dresses were almost $100 less than what we priced out at the most expensive bridal store, and $50 cheaper than the best price I could find from a brick and mortar store. 

Everything arrived perfectly.

My bridesmaids all ordered their dresses about 8-10 weeks before the wedding–and it was difficult to find a manufacturer that could make dresses in 4-6 weeks. We ordered a dress from jordanfashions.com … each bridesmaid made sure that the shop where they ordered the dress would have it 4 weeks before the wedding, in time to do alterations. Everything worked out fine! I think Jordan Fashions says on its website which dresses are able to be made in a rush order. I’m not sure of the expense–but I think it was between $150-200, including rush fee.
