ALL of my bridesmaids are out of town…and I originally thought that the store that I bought the dresses from would ship the dresses to them for free…come to find out its $20 PER DRESS. having 6 bridesmaids that is expensive!! So i thought I can do this myself for cheaper. Has anyone shipped them? what is the best/most cost effective method?
if anyone has ideas for me that would be great!!

How are they getting them altered? I would send them and that way you can make sure they fit right. If they need alterations they can get them done.

i would just get a small box and ship it myself. you could even stuff it in the small or medium flat rate usps box – the small is only $5 but pretty small. even the medium is only $11 but you can probably get cheaper if they’re not heavy. don’t worry about it getting wrinkled because you can just steam it.

I’ve shipped plenty of VERY expensive dresses stuffed into a bubble mailer lol XD It can be done!

I would definitely ship the dresses yourself. Just make sure they are insured and inside of a plastic bag to prevent moisture from seeping in.

I second the bubble mailer!!! You can cram a lot in them! Just make sure its sealed nice and tight! It’s a MUCH cheaper alternative.
