Help! Can't find bridesmaid dresses!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


So I'm going crazy trying to find dresses for my girls! Thinking hot pink or coral something like that. Getting married onthe beach in DR, so I wanted something short and flowy yet still cute.

Maybe a halter tight on top and light flowy material on bottom?


However since the girls are all paying to fly to the DR I wanted to find a really cheap dress, I hate having them spend a lot of money. Maybe off the rack at Macys, forever21 or victoria secret.


Please ANY HELP would be so appreciated I am so lost and can't find anything!!!


Thank you!!!!

I am only having a MOH and I'm having that same problem too. It's more that she wants a certain style of dress that is flattering for her body type and we've had a hard time finding that. Really I think it's hard to find dresses that are not strapless.


I did like this dress from Macy's but I think she's not into the halter type.

Also check out Ann Taylor and JCrew because they had some of their bridesmaid dresses on sale.


Do you have a specific color you want?

This brown one is really tropical and flowy too

This was an option I considered! Thanks for the link because I couldn't find it. Plus at $35 I was thinking of purchasing them for my bridesmaid. I agree don't want them to spend a lot of money when they are traveling; so I wanted to buy their dresses. -PLUS- I would rather they save their money to throw and AWESOME party! :-) shots.gif

Since you're in New York, why don't you try RK Bridal? They're near Penn Station. If your bridesmaids are also in New York, they can go there and find something they like. Then they can order through the no-frills program which discounts. Also, if you find the dress cheaper anywhere on-line, the store will beat the price by 5%. My daughter did this a few years ago and the dresses ended up costing $79.

this is just my opinion but i bought one of those ELAN dresses for myself and i hate it. i am not very big busted, nor am i overweight but i do not find that dress flattering on me at all. if anything i would use it for a beach cover up, but not to wear for a wedding. they are very thin material and if you have girls of all different sizes (like any sort of weight around the middle) i don't think they will photograph well. but like i said that is just my experience.


what price point are you looking for? under $100 or less?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
