An Easy Way to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

Did you know that many bridesmaid dress designers offer their dresses in white or ivory? Ever since Pippa Middleton wore a stunning ivory dress to her sister Kate’s wedding (you remember, she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in April) brides have been picking white or ivory for their bridesmaids’ dresses.

But why not choose one for yourself?

Bridesmaid dresses can be short or long, strapless, embellished and are available in a number of fabrics, including organza, taffeta, satin and jersey, and cost a few hundred dollars at most.

The ordering process will work the same as a wedding dress in most salons. You have to have your measurements taken and the dress will take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive. Once it does you’ll need to find a good tailor to ensure a perfect fit. Unlike bridal salons bridesmaid dress stores usually don’t offer alteration services but will be able to recommend one in the area.

As for some ideas for bridesmaid dresses in white for the bride I think it’ll make a great story and will try and pull one together this week!
