As of last week, I was still searching for bridesmaid dresses. I knew what I wanted, but just wasn’t finding it. And if I did find it, it was either too expensive or took as long as 17 weeks to be made! Honestly, I think I could learn to make a dress in that time.
Since I wanted the bridesmaid dresses to be under $200, I didn’t even think of checking out Vera Wang. I assumed that if Nicole Miller and Monique Lhullier dresses were too expensive, Vera Wang was going to be outrageous. Well, you know what they say when you assume things. It has to do with an ass, you, and me.
After looking at the umpteenth bridesmaid dress late one night last week, I somehow found myself on VeraWang.com. And guess what? The dresses were amazing and UNDER $200. They also come in a great selection of colors, and only take 10 weeks to get to your bridesmaids. I gave my 6 bridesmaids the choice between two dresses, both in the same color, but two different styles and one was cheaper than the other. While I actually would have chosen to first one for myself, they all seem to love the strapless one, both pictured below. That one happened to be $220…still a great deal I think for Vera.
