Bridesmaid Dress Hunt
I mentioned a while back that my sister recently got engaged and we're all into full-blown planning mode. When she set a date of 6.17.17 (aka this year) we launched into full-blown plannic mode. (Get it? Planning + Panic = Plannic)
Really, the panicking isn't from me since I'm a planning freak and event planning is my jam. Nevertheless there are always a few to-dos that give me a bit of heartburn. The major one being bridesmaid dress hunting (for the weddings in which I'm a bridesmaid). I've been in quite a few weddings...heck I've even had one of my own...but nothing drives me quite as bonkers as looking for a bridesmaid dress.
So, instead of the normal go to the bridal store and try on various sizes (most of them not the correct size) of various colored dresses, I decided to try my luck at looking online. I found a number of great dress sites with decently priced dresses. My sister's bridesmaid dress requirements are pretty simple: blush pink (any shade/tone) and long. That's it!
Obviously, Amazon was a big help with this. All you have to do is type in "long blush dress" and you get hundreds of options. I also found sites like JJ's House and UW Dress have decently priced options in a variety of sizes and styles.
I am looking at a pale/blush/dusty pink color, halter/v-neck neckline and A-Line silhouette. So, I'm calling on all my blogger contacts...what are some places you've gone to find bridesmaid/prom/special occasion dresses? Websites? Brick and mortar shops? I'm all ears!
