We’ve all seen the movie 27 Dresses. Katherine Heigl’s portrayal of a professional bridesmaid was too funny not to love, as was the closet jam packed of not-so-lovely looking bridesmaids dresses. So to offer our support to bridesmaids around the world, we’re highlighting a few of our favorite not-so-typical places to get bridesmaids dresses. Because who says bridesmaids dresses need to come from bridal boutiques?
Nordstrom: Though this big retailer is no secret, it is somewhat of a secret in the bridesmaid world. Nordstrom has one of the biggest and best selections of dresses out there, and they have even separated dresses that may be great contenders for your attendants. Now these aren’t exclusive bridal collections, but they are dresses in beautiful colors, flattering shapes, and varying price points, perfect for outfitting a group of girls. An added bonus is Nordstrom’s incredible customer service that will likely be a big help as your bridesmaids find just the right size, color, and Nordstrom store.
J.Crew: First lady, Michelle Obama, isn’t the only one loving J.Crew these days, so are bridesmaids! J.Crew has grown their bridal line in recent years, and bridesmaids everywhere are rejoicing. Many of their dresses allow girls to pick the style of their dress, keeping the same color and fabric as the other bridesmaids. And what bridesmaid doesn’t love the freedom to choose something flattering? And for the bride wanting one-stop shopping for her bridesmaids’ shoes and jewelry, J.Crew has you covered.
Modcloth: This online-only retailer is perfect for the bride having a garden-party wedding, an afternoon ceremony, or a less formal affair. Modcloth carries retro and indie clothing and has a dress selection that covers anything your vintage inspired heart could desire. Dreamy fabrics, pretty florals, and fluttering shapes fill their store and make definite bridesmaid dress potential, especially for the bride who wants a bit more a less-traditional approach. Another bonus is the price. Modcloth’s dresses start at $20. And what bridesmaid doesn’t love that?
