BM dress- need help??
Posted 07 June 2010 - 03:14 PM
If anyone is like me, you've all done tons of research on dresses.
I originally wanted the Victoria Secret convertible dress in grape jelly but I was too late and it was sold out
I love the deep purple colour. I found this pic on the web (somewhere but can't remember). It's sort of the style I'm looking for -- short, light weight, wearable again!
If anyone has ideas of where to find something like this, ?

- try local bridal shops and general dress shops. Because they have seen just about every style dress out there they can probably find something VERY close to what you are looking for if not the same dress.
- There are some on this forum that have found places in china and india that will make any knock off dress from a picture. I did not go that route so I don't have any advice.
- I got so frustrated looking for my dress that I contacted a designer and having them custom made. He took pictures of dresses I liked - added his design touch and my BM dresses were born. This was not an expensive option. So it depends on budgets. If you would like his information then let me know.
-Oh I just thought of another option for the convertible dress...I didn't use them because they did not have my colors...AGAIN! :-) www.TwoBirdsdresses.com
There are dressmakers on etsy.com that can make the convertible dress but why pay as much as they charge when you could purchase the designer version.

#1 Convertible Infinity Bridesmaid Wrap Dress by erinleighheart=tags&includes=title
#2 twobirds bridesmaid (abit more $$$$)
Those were the best ones I could find. There is also one out through Avon but I am not able to find it on their website. I know its not the purple dress you showed in the picture above but it is another convertible dress so I thought it might help...hope it does!!

I'd been debating about adding another bm to our wedding party and finally decided that I really wanted to but of course the colour of the dresses wasn't being made anymore. We lucked out and found the exact size and colour available through ebay and it was still a brand new dress.
Right now there are some on Etsy.com that are similar to the VS ones.
Question for you... did you find the dress "dressy" enough for the wedding?
did your BM's re use the dress?
That's my biggest thing, I don't want them to have to have a dress that they won't wear again... It just seems like such a waste to me...

Too bad this wasn't in dark plum because it's very close to the dress you posted above!
This one is cute too!
I hope that helps! I love the one you posted too. Very unique with an interesting detail.

Those are beautiful dresses, thanks for posting them. I'll try that site.
I do like the light purple one, and it is too bad it's not darker.
I wish I could remember where I got the original pic from oh well
love the wedding pic, .. see you're vacationing soon - have fun!
