OK Ladies, here is one of the biggest secrets in this wedding industry and probably the last thing some of you will want to hear. Bridesmaid dress companies are THE biggest rip off this side of theknot's "store". I'm serious girls, hear me out. These companies get away with manufacturing the worst quality clothing at horrific prices. And the reason the get away with it is because of brides who like the color selection they provide. This is a terribly old fashioned idea, pre-internet where you couldn't browse through 100's of dresses from home. Do yourself a huge favor. If you are having a warm weather wedding, look online now for dresses from your favorite retailers. They are all on sale and you will do your girls a huge favor. They can get a designer dress, of your choice (color, style, the whole thing...) that they can alter just as well as a regular bridesmaid dress, save some money and YOU will look better for having a chic wedding when you tell people "Oh, they are all Marc Jacobs". Trust me on this one girls! All the dresses listed here cost less than a standard BM dress and they are all from Neimans.
