Please help! If any of you have seen affordable dresses resembling these anywhere....

Recommended Posts

Ok so I was poking around online and found these dresses that I became OBSESSED with for my bridesmaid dresses. Of course, they are $350.00 and there is NO WAY that is happening. I am looking to go no higher than like $150 but I'm having a pretty formal wedding for DW standards, reception in a ballroom, 100+ people, etc and I need them to not be cotton or any casual fabric. So here is the dream dress (keep reading after you've drooled)...

Hold on, let me take a moment to mourn this too expensive one...

 

Ok, moving on...

 

 

And I found these MORE affordable ones at Jasmine Bridal ($158, still a lot...but doable)

Which are still beautiful, but I'm not 100% sold.

 

Have any of you found anything that looks similar to these (you can tell where I'm going with this...)

 

The other problem is that I initally told my BM's I would pick a color and fabric and they could pick their own style, and now I feel awful picking one for all of them...

 

 

HELP!!! :)

I've definitely seen affordable and similar dresses to those at www[dot]simplydresses[dot]com

 

I'd, also, suggest looking at some Bari Jay dresses too.

 

Hope that helps! =]

Yes, I will definitely check that out.

 

I also forgot to add that I told them they would all be in short dresses besides the MOH. (There are 8 of them.) I feel so bad!! :(((

 

Oh! And Also- do you girls think it is ugly or ridiculous to have them in a print like that (not really a print but you get what I mean...)???

I wouldn't worry about it. Those dresses are beautiful. Besides, they're there for you and it's your wedding. I don't think they would mind wearing a dress you chose.

 

There are also short dresses similar to those photos on the website. Worth a look.

 

Also, I reread and saw that you're planning a formal wedding. So am I! esp. considering it's a DW =]

 

In my opinion, I don't think it's ugly to have a print like that. I think it's pretty and pops out. I know you're having a formal wedding w/ a ballroom reception but what's the location? Is it near the beach or in that kind of area? Either way, I think it's classy enough for a formal event, but also casual enough for other settings. I would go for the second dress's print for a formal though. The first dress's print would be better for the beach setting.

Our ceremony and cocktail hour are in the gazebo/terrace on the beach and then we move inside to the resort so yeah, we are def having it near the beach.

 

And thank you Tropical Bride- it helps so much to know which one people could see themselves wearing! :)

FW, I bought the Belsoie one for me because I really loved it and my bms did not want strapless.  It is a really beautiful dress.  I am planning to wear it either for the welcome dinner or the rehearsal dinner.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
