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:)

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!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
