Letting Bridesmaids pick their own dresses!

Hi y'all! I'm letting my maids pick their own dresses, as I know many of you are! A lot of them have to travel across the East Coast to get to our wedding so I didn't want to add in extra expenses of a BM dress from JCrew or a bridal salon (plus possibly needing to travel up here for fittings and shopping.)

 

They're all looking around at their favorite stores, but one of them also found this site, ThredUp that is basically an upscale consignment store online.  One of them is ordering a "like new" The Limited Cocktail dress for $21 but it was originally $120 in store! Awesomesauce!

 

I just wanted to pass on this resource in case y'all are looking for BM dresses on a cute, but still budget base.  Of course TJ Maxx, Forever 21, etc will still be options for my BMs but they're also watching this website like hawks!

 What a great idea! It's nice that you've considered how much they're spending for your day too xxxx

 Awesome idea Kim!  I just personally know that I'd be pretty pissed if someone expected me to put $200-300 down for a dress for one day (dude my wedding dress doesn't even cost that much! haha!) and then expect all the gifts/trips/parties/etc that comes with it. 

 

I'm kinda the anti-bridezilla. People keep telling me to add stuff in or make things more formal and then my eyes start to glaze over and my blood starts to boil! ;) haha!
