I just posted a comment on another post and realized this might be a lifesaver to others like it was to me.
AT http://www.gagas.com you can RENT, yes rent! your flowergirl dresses. I don’t know about others, but I think that $80-$100 is just So expensive for a dress for a little girl who is going to grow out of it and never wear it again. I tried finding some for $50, but then came across the best deal I’ve found in my wedding so far – GaGas.
My two flower girls and ring bearer are all brother and sister, so their mom was looking at about $300 to contribute to the wedding between the dresses and his tux.
At gagas, I was able to find a tux for the boy that is almost identical to what we were going to get at Mens Warehouse. It was only $38 at gagas as opposed to $100 at MW. The two flower girl dresses are $20 each plus $5 for a sash on one of them. Then have a TON of colors and allow 3 or 6 week rentals (six are a little more, I am doing three)
If you order it and it doesn’t fit, they will also allow you to send it back for a size smaller or a size larger.
Hope this helps so birdes as much as it helped me! 🙂

I just wanted to second everything that Bridemarie wrote. We also used gagas and found them economical and practical. And, the dresses looked great!
Customer service was great, delivery was smooth – I have nothing but good things to say about gagas!
You can see our ringbearer and two flower girl dresses if you click on the professional picture links on our website:

Sorry to be the sour puss here. I used gagas and we ordered three tuxes(sp?), they sent the wrong on two of them though we confirmed everything and spoke to someone on the phone. We did return everything but had to pay for it to be sent back out due to their poilcy, and then we received two back that my younget son wore for 30 minutes because it was too, small again, but we were desparate and I didn’t have time to go ut and buy one. The other was too big, and he look like Ton Hanks in "BIG"….when he shrinks down but he is earing man clothes?? LOL! I can laugh now but when I look at my pictures, I hate that he looks sloppy and my youngest son looks like he’s wearing a super small tux…
I will say they were nice, just not helpful or realistic about the sizes they sometimes send and how they remedy situations. If I could go back I would spend the money on nice suits for them or would have gone with another company.
P.S. One fit fine, but 1 out of 3 is not good in my book!

Well, hopefully we can get more comments from brides that have tried them before to get a good idea of what is common and what is not – any other experiences ladies?

This might be helpful; I actually ordered one of the dresses 3-4 months before the wedding to test out the gagas process/timing, quality and sizing. This proved valuable in judging the real sizes – so I ended up paying a little more for the extra rental, but overall, still less than buying.

The Gagas link did not work, but there is this site with inexpensive dresses.
