Latest Time to Order BM Dresses??

Recommended Posts

My MOH and 4 BM's will be wearing Bari Jay dresses (Dress Style 249 in beige), so they have to get sized and then special-order their dresses.

 

None of them have done this yet. I'm just starting to get nervous b/c I don't know if the Spring styles will be discontinued/unavailable once it starts to get into fall... I don't want to have to pick new dresses.

 

Wedding isn't 'til April, so even though a couple say they're going to do it ASAP, I don't know if I should push the others yet or if I can still wait a while longer.

The store we ordered our BM dresses at said we needed 4 months. Any earlier than that and we would have had to pay a rush fee.

 

I do not know the company you are ordering from, but most companys do not stop selling a style due to season. You can usually get any style and any colour at any time of the year. That is because most people order them way in advance.

Take it from me, make them order them now!! If they plan to lose weight (some say that) they can order them now and always have them altered later.

 

My bm's lagged bigtime, and when the first one went to order the dress in February (wedding was in June) she was told it would be cutting it close, even with a rush fee. I had to select a different dress that was available on short notice. I liked the new dress and it worked out fine, but if your heart is set on the one you picked don't let them lag or you will be scrambling to select a new one like I was!!

The store I went to told me that I needed to order the dresses I like NOW even though my wedding isn't til May because it may get discontinued when the new collection comes out in the fall. The store said they are not notified as to what dresses will be discontinued until about a week or two before it happens. So, if you really like this dress, I would ask the store if they have any idea if this particular dress will be discontinued this fall, just to make sure that you still have time.

Okay, thanks ladies. Freaking out now! Guess I'll have to be a little firm with the ladies. So far they have been all talk and no action. Time to crack the whip!!! lol

Ok, I am ordering the same dresses, BariJay #249.... and 2 of my bridesmaids are ordering them today! We are getting married this coming January! I was told they will be here in about 8 weeks- sometime in November.

I think a lot of stores try to scare you by saying you need to order them now so you order from then that day rather than looking elsewhere- just my opinon.

By the way- how much are you paying for them? I was quoted 150.00, and even 160.00, but the last store I went to they were only 108.00!! Or, I think they were about 110.00 on this website with free shipping:Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dresses

Usually they say give them atleast 6 months. At my sisters wedding we ordered them about 3 months before the wedding and we only got them a few days before the wedding. So dont let them wait long!

Wow, didn't know about that website but just emailed for a quote!!!

I was quoted $148 each, which was standard at all but one shop here ... which quoted $118, but said I was crazy when we went in there to talk about getting them all from that shop. So, I guess about $150 is right.

Hopefully I'll get a good quote from this site. Wonder how reputable it is? Do you know anything about it?

No, I don't and that is why I dign't order from them. Also, a lot of places charge for taking measurements if you do not order from them- it was 20.00 here, so add that on to the price and they were more than I could find them locally.

Also, be sure to have professional measurements taken because my bridesmaids who are normally about a size 6, ordered size 12 in this dress!!

 

The place here where I got them for 108.00 was The Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul. I am not sure if it is a chain or not...

    • 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.
