Thanks Kat!! even my FI really liked it.. so i couldn't resist!! I am currently trying to find a store that we can go try ones on, but that have a gfood selection of info online too so we can look that way... yep... the dresses are Horrendous!! they don't match at all... ugh! we bnought them from
I love your cake topper it is really cute. Hat, veil and pearls
If I would be you I would go online and pick bridesmaids dresses from the store that you all can go and try it on. That way you will know that your girls got perfect dresses. I would not want to get another ugly dress since it is only 4 month away.
And 2 dress does not look anything like a first one. Where did you buy it from? How come they have such a horrible return policy? is it in china?
I got my edible starfish from cakesbysam.com .. they are just made out of molding chocolate and fondant..

Thanks Natalie! I am pretty happy with it also... we got it from
OMG!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE your cake topper!!! Where did u get it from and how much was it?????
That is a good idea about finding a dress and then searching nearby stores for the bridesmaids out of town... we are actually going to go to cross iron mills mall here soon and see if we can find anything there... and we will also check Laura... as they have a petite, regular and plus size section.. which is a bonus.. being that my girls are different sizes, this may make it easier to find something that will fit all of them.. I will keep you ladies posted on how i make out! Thank you for the ideas on rw&co and thos eplaces.. i will definatly check them out!!! you are right.. even if they can go in and try the dress style on, i can order them in the proper colors etc... once we find a style etc..

I ended up ordering them all from the same store to get a discount....but then got each BM their dresses the next time I saw them. OR you could get the dress from a chain store like David's, Sears or RW&Co. Stores like that can usually order the dress in if they don't have it in stock. The good news is you still have lots of time to get this sorted out. And I would call that company you ordered from and speak to the highest manager insisting a refund!!!
Sorry to hear about what happened.....but at least you have an AWESOME cake topper! Love it!!!
I agree Tori, i was seriously seeing RED on friday! and then again on saturday when i was fighting with this company.. you should see some of the emails i wrote them... and it didn't even phase them.. they are completly okay with thier craftmanship... just crazy... I am a little worried on the BM brand dresses too though, becuase then i am looking at soo much more money.. and i didn't want anything too fancy, as my dress is fairly simple, and the Guys are just in Guayabera shirts and linen pants.. I know last resort though i will be looking at places like that...
This is the only problem i have ever had with online shopping ( unfortunately this would be one of the most important things lol... ) but up until now i have had all good luck!
Oh well.. i will get it sorrted i hope.. and i will keep you all posted!!

I would suggest sticking with a BM brand for dresses and that way each of your girls can go to a bridal store in their area, you can ensure all the colours are the same and they can get measured for size. The only problem may be with only 4 months to go it will be considered a "rush" order.
We went off the rack for our BM dresses, 2 need minor alterations but they were under $100 a piece so we did save some money there.... wish I could be more help!
I would continue fighting this site you've been dealing with but I know it will likely do no good. This is exactly why I am so hesitant of online shopping!
Unfortunatly we are scattered all over Alberta, but that's as far as we go.. so we don't have a David's Bridal... i sure wish we did though!! it would sure make my life alot easier hahaha.. I completely agree with how hard it is going to be to find off the rack BM dresses in the beachy theme and color i want.. that is exactly what i was worried about too... they have a cute dress at Sears.. ( online only..lol of course) that we could look to as a last resort also.. and just pray it fits and looks good on all girls.. lol
All i have to say.. is THANK GOODNESS i am only getting married ONCE!!!!

It will be very difficult to find 3 dresses off the rack in white/pale blue this time of year... which makes it tough to NOT buy online. Have you checked out the dresses in Victorias Secret? They are generally pretty affordable?
Thank you Ladies for all your help and advise!! I will keep you posted.. and Thanks again for letting me rant.. i feel better after i talk with you ladies!! I love these boards!!!! xoxo
