Bridesmaid Dresses - Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I am really struggling to find bridesmaid dresses. My ideal look would be a pretty coral dress, likely sleeveless or small straps, knee length or just above the knee, likely light and flowy. I am open to other colours but it must be a brighter colour. I love how the brighter colours pop on the beach. I don't want my girls spending a ton, hence why I'm likely having a hard time finding anything. 

 

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much! :)

Well obviously David's Bridal for bridesmaids dresses is a popular option, but it can get pricey. 

 

Have you considered a convertible dress, so that each bridesmaid can wear the same color but style it in a way that is most comfortable for their own body type, etc?

 

My sister in-law used this Etsy shop for her bridesmaids dresses and they were beautiful and super affordable! Plus you can order the color you want :) And yes, they do have a beautiful coral color that would look amazing on the beach.

 

Here's the link to her shop on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/thedaintyard?ref=pr_faveshops

 

Hope that helps!!!  ;)

The link that @@MarieSamSanchezPhoto is great.  I didn't end up buying from them but the customer service was great and I got a sample of 6 colours to see how the fabric was like.  The seller can do a customization so that each bridesmaid can pay for their own. I think the price for each dress is about $70 and shipping is from Singapore so about $30CAD.  I don't know the cost for shipping in bulk.

Hi @ heatherd26!

We do beach weddings on a private beach location so this tends to call for a relaxed environment. A trend we’ve seen a lot lately (and we think it helps bridesmaids feel  more comfortable) is for the bride to just tell her bridesmaids the palette she is looking for, and allow each of the girls to get their own dress according to their style and the color of their preference. This way you are giving them freedom to go for what they will like to wear the most (and we think it also looks great in the pictures).

 

A twist of that is providing the girls with 2 or 3 different dress styles in the same colors so they can choose what style works best for them (for instance to each of them to choose they favorite neckline).

 

Here are a few pictures of lovely bridesmaid’s dresses we’ve had, that are comfortable for beach weddings:

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
