Did anyone do this? I was thinking of getting a 99$ one from David's bridal, any other ideas? I'm thinking a custom Hong Kong one will take more than eight weeks to get here. The main reason I want to do this is to be able to do the session before the wedding, as we have one full day after and I'd like to sleep in and relax

I didn't do a trash the dress so I can't be any help there. But a David's $99 one is at least not painful on the wallet.

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I am not doing a TTD either but I would go with somewhere you can try it on. I know some
Girls on this site have great experience with people abroad doing custom dresses, but the couple I know did not. Their dresses weren't sized to their measurements at all, one came dirty, etc. These girls only paid like $150 so not horrible. If you go with one of the higher end companies then I say go for it -- although I assume there may be a higher price tag than $100. If not, I would probably stick to David's bridal or similar. Good luck.

That's what I plan on doing

So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

I did.  My dress feels like at least 20lbs, so even though I'm a competitive swimmer, I'm pretty sure I would have drowned ;)


I ended up getting a bridesmaid dress for about $200 (with taxes, etc) that I got in white.  I went to DB and they had like 2 $99 dresses (I went in the Chicagoland area).  They don't do bridesmaid dresses in white, but other bridal shops will!


This is the dress that I got (http://www.jordanfashions.com/455):

TTD dress (Jordan 455, bridesmaid dress in white)

30 guests, Bride & Groom & 2 kids - one FANTASTIC time!

    A white bridesmaid dress is a great idea.

    I ended up getting a 100$ DB dress for 50$ on tradesy that I actually had looked at previously ... Very lightweight!
