Hello gta Brides. Looking for a great place to purchase bridesmaids dresses besides David's Bridal

Can you ladies all share with me where is a good place that sells reasonably priced dresses. I went to David's Bridal yesterday and out of the 9 dresses my MOH tried on we came down to 2 but then it turns out we have to decide decide pretty quickly because it can take up to 20weeks. I have looked at Shein and Azzazie but a bit nervous buying such an item on line.

Great to hear where you all bough yours or going to buy yours.


thanks

    I’ve purchased dresses from Azazie and they were decent! They take all your exact measurements, so no extra tailoring required! I would recommend getting the fabric swatches first though. My dress ended up being quite a different shade in person versus online. Still pretty, but not exactly what I thought

    Hope you are having a wonderful spring. Just a few questions on the sites you posted about: How did the arrival time turn out? Shipping okay? Communication?

    What a lovely site! Looks like shipping is good too! Hard to picture the dresses on real people, that are not 100lbs and 16 yrs old, but otherwise looks good.

    I brought my wedding dress from Best for Bride, they have locations in Toronto, Etobicoke, Hamilton, and Barrie, I did not get my bridesmaid dresses from there, however, their prices are reasonable on even wedding dresses and they have clearance racks at the Etobicoke location.

    For my bridesmaids, I actually did get their dresses on Shein, the material was actually surprisingly thick and good quality and looked really good, sometimes you just gotta take a chance, Shein is also a cost-effective option.

    Lady Black Tie (https://ladyblacktie.com/) is where I got my wedding dress - they also have a lot of variety of dresses. Great communication back and forth - They took more pictures for me and a video of the dress. I wanted to bring the pictures and video to my seamstress to see if she thought is would be worthwhile, I was nervous buying online. Size was right on, I have very little alterations that need to be done. I had the dress within 1.5 weeks - they made the transaction seamless!

    Azazie was GREAT! All my girls got there dresses super fast and they are great quality! A few of my girls even did the custom sizing option and there are no issues with that either. Also great prices & tons of colour options!

    Yea but It's still less than paying for a boutique dress. I believe. The one I saw at David will cost 209.00 plus 87 for ulteration plus tax

    Thats a lot for shipping! I'd very roughly guess duties would be around $40

    I appreciate all this from you. I do know the cost is on CAD thank God. And they charger 31.00 CAD for delivery. I just don't like the duty surprise. Hmmm

    It's kinda hard to say what duties will be. I think there's a $10-20 processing fee plus whatever the taxes would be. Some sites will snow you duties at the checkout but some you wont know until the package shows up. I also believe JJs house is USD so I'd check that and make sure to factor in the conversation to CAD

    Oh no way. Thanks for this heads up. How will I know how much the duty charges are? Is that something we won't know until it's delivered?


    I did check out both sites and I fell in love with the JJs house dress only found one that I liked not loved on Azzazie.
    If the fees our 40 to 50 dollars it's not too bad. Bc dress cost is only 127.00But no fees can be better of course. I may search one more time on Azzazie if duty is a lot

    One thing to keep in mind with JJs house is there will be duty charges when they arrive. Azazie won't have cause they ship from a Canadian warehouse (I believe in Mississauga) and if you do need alterations they will reimburse you a bit!

    Oooo i love this feed back. Thank you thank you thank you, I have put a couple styles in my wish list there and i have a couple as well in JJ's House. they also have custom sizing which is great, just that you can not return custom sizing (which of course makes sense)

    I highly recommend Azazie! We are using them for my bridesmaids and this is my 2nd time using them! My friend also recently uses them and was happy! Timeline is much quicker than David's Bridal. Azazie also has a try on at home option so your MOH/bridesmaids can try on the styles at home before deciding which one to order! They also offer free custom sizing which worked every well for me and helps save money on alterations!

    Check out Laura Canada & Melanie Lyne!

    They're both ran by the same company just sister stores to each other. Both Canadian companies as well

    I bought my MOH's dress from Laura. I also work for the company. If they don't have your size in store, they can order it and it takes about 5-6 business days
