BM/FG Dress At Good Cost

Recommended Posts

With the economy tight I need to find a nice but cost effective dress for my MOH and 2 FGs does anyone have any recommendations on a dress or where they got them. I am open to colors, which is why I would like to find a dress soon so I can get some of my DIY stuff done.

my friend just got hers (not destination wedding) at Target for $25! Try just looking for cute dresses in the usual places (dept. stores, etc.) instead of "bridesmaid" dresses and you'll find something.

Just bought cute BM dresses at Ann Taylor on sale and the girls love them. Check it out, also look at J Crew and Target. All the summer stuff is on sale and you can get some great bargains.

Here is another option that I never would have considered originally....I ordered 2 fg dresses only to have them both come back as discontinued, not happy....but happy I saved $300 on both trys at ordering. I was going to wait until spring to see the new lines. I went to the fabric mart (garment district in LA) and found some amazing fabrics this weekend. I was shocked that a fabric I was goign tospend $18/yd on was only 1 or $2/yd here. Casually on the way home, I asked my mom if it would be cheaper to have it made...her thinking I have no artistic taste so she was concerned, until I explained what I was thinking (I had a specific dress in my head that I had not seen anywhere in the right colors/texture). We now have $20 (this is high as I bought lime silk and extra organza) in fabric, $10 in a pattern, and a seamstress will make it for almost nothing....

I am getting exactly what I want for over $200 less....a great way to go.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
