It’s my sisters wedding in just over a month. I’m the Maid of Honor, yay! Problem: We haven’t ordered or found our bridesmaid dresses. Yes, you heard right. No dresses for the maids.

We are waiting for color swatches from a site that has the exact dresses my sis is wanting for us, and it will take them a month to get us our dresses…once we order. But it’s cutting it close!

So I’m here at work, pretending to be busy, but really, I’m looking for sites that have dresses that might suit what we’re looking for. Forever 21, Anthropologie, Mod Retro, JCrew. I’ve found some options, mostly at JCrew, but they’re really expensive!

Our Wants:

  1. Long
  2. Flowy
  3. $200ish (less is even better!)
  4. Green (sage is perfect, but at this point, we’ll consider anything).

Any sites that we might find helpful? Any ideas?

  1. What about having them custom made. If a seamstress or gown designer is not busy it might be possible. Good Luck!

    • We thought of that too, but since we don’t have a fabric store (how terrible is that?) in our town, it would make the process even that much longer – traveling to another town 2 hrs away etc. And when I did have a chance to go to the fabric store 2 hrs away even they didn’t have the type of fabric that would suit the dress! 😦

  2. Hmmm… I love a good fashion puzzle!! Is the wedding formal or more casual? Warm or cooler climate? Day or night? What is her color palette? (I’m wondering because if green can’t be found, maybe there’s the perfect dress in another color that would still look lovely with everything else she’s chosen.)

    • Ok, so formal wedding, very cool climate (northern Canada…December…), it’s a day wedding with an evening reception, her colors are sage green and white. But she’s not being too pick on the type of green anymore (since it’s really close to the date). I’d love to see what you come up with!! 😀
