- Wedding: April 2013
I’m in a spot of bother, I live in Darwin, my Maid/Matron of Honor lives in Townsville and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is currently serving overseas. I need to organise bridesmaid dresses and theres no way we can all get together long enough before the wedding to try dresses on to see what suits.
I’m in Darwin, its quite remote with two bridal stores I can think of and their stock is very dated.
My Maid/Matron of Honor lives in Townsville and while she has more shops than I do, the selection is not a great as say, Brissy, Sydney or Melbourne.
My Bridesmaid or Best Man – whole other story. I have to have the dress ready to go when she gets home – she’ll just have enough time for it to be altered if neededbefore the wedding. Theres no way she could try it on and have it not suit as we wouldn’t have time to try anything else on.
I’m starting to think I should to buy these online, but am really worried about buying sight unseen, and having it suit both my girls, one of who is fuller figured and the other has a very athletic straight up and down shape.
Has anyone bought Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses without the girls trying them on? Please share your experience!
