What are the best places to shop for bridesmaids dresses?

Asked by emilyrose (2269points) May 18th, 2009

My best friend is getting married and I need to get a dress. We are not wearing matching dresses but they have to be the same color. I have already checked out JCrew, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor. Any other suggestions? I don’t want a dress made of typical bridesmaid material (taffeta, etc) rather something I can wear to other weddings, parties, etc. Any ideas?

Oh – I see you’ve already checked out Jcrew bridesmaid’s line. I was going to suggest to go directly to those because of the all the bridesmaid’s dresses I’ve seen, they have the most classic cuts, the least bridesmaidy-type materials, and do duty for many other occasions.

My next try would be Anthropologie where you will undoubtedly have to pay a lot, or Macy’s – which has a great selection of higher-end designers like Tracey Reese. Check out her ‘Frock’ line.

Oh yeah – and I forgot to mention the bridesmaid’s section of Bluefly too. You can look up dresses by color on this site.

JCPenney has some nice dresses in their Jones Wear collection. Also, I don’t know if you have a B.Moss near you (they don’t have a website) they have some great dresses. I almost chose my bridesmaids dresses from their regular dress racks.

Not the first place you’d think to look, but I’m in a wedding that has one of these as the bridesmaids dress and I LOVE it… finally a bridesmaid dress you really can wear again.
