    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.

      Have you looked at David's Bridal?? That's where I'm getting my MOH and BM's dresses. They are only 100-150..

        Not sure about FGs, but I got my BM's dresses at http://www.forever21.com for $16.50 a piece. They have a lot of great styles of dresses for less than $30. Maybe Welcome to Target for the FGs, they have a wedding line now that is very inexpensive. Good luck!

            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.
