Can't Get BM Dress in Time... HELP!!! PLEEEASE!!!

Recommended Posts

So, I have a bridesmaid that wasn't going to be able to make my wedding because she was supposed to be in Ireland with her family. Plans changed so she booked her trip to Cancun last week. She has been calling dress shops and the actual manufacturer of the dress and the fastest anyone can get one is 6 weeks... my wedding will be over!! I've checked ebay and craigslist but nothing there... I don't know what to do!! She could just go and get a dress of the same color but the dress is a weird teal/jade color and it could look really bad against the other dresses. AND my other bm dresses aren't arriving for a few more weeks so she wouldn't have anything to really compare it to until about a week before the wedding. I didn't actually pick a specific dress so it SHOULD make it easier, I just picked the designer and color but I'm still at a loss.

I don't know what to do!! Any ideas would be super super appreciated or if anyone can find me a size 6 Alfred Angelo dress in jade I would love you forever!!!

 

Here is the link to the options and I chose the color JADE:

Alfred Angelo... Find the perfect Wedding Dress, Bridesmaid Dress, Prom Dress, Flower Girl Dress or Mother of the Bride Dress at Alfred Angelo.

That is a hard color to match if your not buying it from that designer. I seen they had an option for rush delivery, will that not come in time? How many BM do you have and what are your colors? Maybe she could wear something that matches your colors.

You could buy one right off the rack....I was at a bridal store a while back that has alfred and in that color...call them. I know its in Kansas, but I think that they could send it quickly. Here is the site miasbridal.com

I was going to say the same thing - there are 2 Alfred Angelo stores in San Antonio...call them both and see if they have a size 6 on the rack in jade (any style)....you may need to sweet talk them, but i bet if you call around to them, you may get a break. It won't be the same style, but at least the color will be a match. Good Luck!!!!!

Try this site -- and just ask which AA dress styles they have already -in stock- and in Jade (you can get it altered if it's a bit too big).

 

And definitely GO to any bridal salons locally and just ask what they might have on the rack that's AA in Jade and worry about size after you find a dress. I know there is one out there for her!

I agree, I would go and see what AA jade size 6 and up they have on the rack. If it's too big she can just alter it. Good luck!!

If you can't find one in Jade, is there an accent color you could use?

 

You can also order a fabric swatch in Jade. A local bridal store should be able to give you one. That way she could go ahead ans start shopping...

Thanks ladies... I'm going to start calling around!

Oh and I found out that she is a size 8, not a 6 (just in case anyone finds anything!)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
