shopping for bridesmaid dresses

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

One of the most recent wedding decisions I have made is what my bridesmaids will be wearing! I am super excited today to share with you all the process of picking out the dresses : ).



I selected bridesmaid dresses from Weddington Way. I found the website when I was searching for a discount code on a Donna Morgan dress I had fallen in love with. I was convinced this was the dress I was going choose; and my sister even tried it on while we were wedding dress shopping! The problem was that they were about $50 more than I wanted to ask my bridesmaids to spend. Luckily, they had a promo code for the fourth of July to take down the price of the dress!

However, as I browsed the website I fell in love with an entirely different dress! When I found a dress I loved I was able to create a showroom. The showroom was amazing because all of my bridesmaids are spread out over three different states! In it, I was able to choose my top dresses. Each bridesmaid was able to say whether they liked it or not, which one was their favorite, etc! It was so helpful to have one spot to share everything, rather than have to communicate over email or text!



Now, I am not going to go into detail about which dress I ordered or what color -- because that needs to be a surprise at the wedding! However, I will tell you I ordered from the Exclusive Weddington Way Collection. Let me tell you, I am obsessed with the dress (to the point where I want to be a bridesmaid in a wedding where I can wear one haha)!  So, what do I love about it?

1. The color: it is perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Each bridesmaid actually told me she loved the color of the dress!
2. The material: it looks sophisticated but is still comfy. It is not the typical chiffon or satin bridesmaid dress, which I love. I was able to order a free color swatch to make sure I liked the material and color before ordering the dresses, too.
3. Pockets: 'nough said.
4. Price: A dress under $150... I was happy!

I didn't know anyone who had ordered through Weddington Way before so I was a little nervous to order through the. I was comforted though because they had free shipping and free returns. I figured if we hated them we did not have anything to lose! I am so glad I took the risk. I could not be happier with the dresses! They shipped quickly and were shipped in a garment a bag. I had no idea they did that, and was super impressed when one of my bridesmaids sent me a picture of how it arrived!

If you are shopping for bridesmaids dresses, I highly recommend you check out Weddington Way! If you are not a fan of the Weddington Way brand, just remember the website when you are shopping. I stumbled across the website when searching for a promo code for an entirely different brand of dresses! They were the only place I could find any sort of discount on bridesmaid dresses. I was so excited and I know my bridesmaids appreciated the savings! I can't wait to show you all the dresses I picked out.

A post will be coming soon with a wedding update about all the things we have accomplished lately. I just thought this needed its' own dedicated post!

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or Bloglovin'!
This is not a sponsored post. I contacted Weddington Way after we ordered and loved the dresses about writing a blog post. They offered my bridesmaids a refund on a portion of their dress in exchange for this post.
