Bridesmaid Dress as a Wedding Gown

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I wanted to share the idea with anyone looking for a beachy wedding dress!!

 

I was looking at wedding dresses today with my cousin and couldn't find what I was looking for because I wanted beachy and I wanted inexpensive. Not to mention, my wedding is in 7.5 months so I'm really pushing it for the dress to be ordered and come in on time. 

 

My cousin had the brilliant idea to look at bridesmaid dresses instead of wedding gowns. The salesgirl told us that 99% of the bridesmaid dresses come in white/ivory. So I tried a bunch on and found one that I love! And it's only $230! Yay!!! And bridesmaid dresses only take about 3-5 months to come in. So I'm totally fine for time.

 

Bridesmaid dresses are just more flowy and way more in chiffon to give you a simpler, beachier look. More variety for that look, I found, than in the wedding gown section.

That's exactly what I did.  Couldnt find a dress that I wasn't sweating in (in an a/ced store), so I asked for options, and that is EXACTLY what my sales lady said. Especially that I will be trashing it. It was a bit over 200 and I'm very pleased with it :)....

A friend of mine did this and it worked out perfectly for her.  She was also in a time crunch and ended up being exactly what she wanted:)

This is a fantastic idea! I am planning on getting a second dress for my TTD, and now I know exactly where to look

I've never heard of this, but what a GREAT idea.  I'm planning our wedding w/ only 6 months prior to the date and want to lose a few pounds before I pick a dress.  A bridesmaid dress will be a great idea!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
