Bridesmaids Dress

My sister is getting married in October and I could not be more excited! I love the excitement and buzz that a wedding creates. I am a bridesmaid and we get to pick our own dress. The guidlines are to find a dress that is gray and tea length. Somehow I can never seem to find a proper tea length dress, mine are always a bit shorter. But, I have checked with my sister and I think it will be ok. These are my top three choices right now.

The first one (far left) is my top choice. I really like the third dress, but we're wearing little sweaters on top and I think the flowers would get covered and look bumpy and funny.

I wanted to share these because searching for the perfect bridesmaid dress can be challenging, especially if you're on a budget. I checked soooo many websites! I'm still not committed either; I check back multiple times for sales and new stock. The month of July is a great time to look in bridal stores because it's after the two major wedding months, so they usually have sales.

 I search every store website possible! I check ModCloth the most because their stock constantly changes and updates. I also look at JCrew, David's Bridal, Macy's, Antropology, but I rarely find a dress that I love on those sites. I don't really set a budget, but if a dress is $100+ it needs to be one that I will wear again and again and again - that's how JCrew usually gets cut out.

For me, it always comes down to dresses that are at either Target or JCPenney. And this is my third time being a bridesmaid, so this hunt is not too foreign for me. The best part of ordering from these stores is that their return policies are really easy and I know my size for sure. Also, with JCPenney I can ship to my local store which makes shipping free!

Where's your favorite place to shop for dresses?
