    Crap people- I just need to vent to you before poor Jose (guy who sits next to me at work) here gets an earful. I know it's early as hell to be looking at BM dresses but I am looking anyway so I can see what I like. Plus I have my dress so I'm looking for styles that will compliment it. So I found this dress below that I love, the girls love it too. Anyway- I called a shop that carries it, but...it's $290! Added to that are the alterations, and shoes. So I'm thinking it will be around $390 or more for everything said and done. And that is just DAMN rediculous, I am not going to put them in a hole like that. They'll be helping with the shower and whatnot too so wtf. I wish I could make thier dresses. Either that or I'll put down $100.00 for each girl, I only have 3... Ahhhhh it will work out I know but I needed to get that out! I might even see another dress since my wedding is 10 years away!

    It's Lazaro, and I'd be getting it in eggplant (hopefully the fabric looks pretty or else I'll be writing a thread on that too!)

      my FSIL picked out a $230 BM dress. I found it online for $130. maybe you can find this one for less.

      I'll hunt down the website...

        That's a beautiful dress! Have you checked with your local taylor,if he/she is talented they can probably do it for a lot less.

            I've posted a 10% off coupon around ehre somewhere. You can easily find one by googling TJ formal coupon. The ones I have will be expired by the time you'd order anyway.

            Oh shipping is free.

            Whats the style #? I'll see if I can find it for less.

              No not from the company. From BM dress sellers. There are lots out there. I found the same dress that was $230 in the bridal salon on one of these discount dress sites. Tami suggested it. She got all her BM dresses through them. Shipping takes a while (11 weeks).

                I was thinking that so I'd have to look into it and see if it would make a major difference. Why didn't God give me the gift of sewing skills Just kiddingggggg
