Mestads knows that we can find you the perfect bridesmaid gown to enhance the look of your wedding day. Even if you did not buy your wedding gown from us bring along a picture of the dress you did choose and we will gladly guide you through the racks to some gowns that would be a great match.
We recommend shopping for your bridesmaids dresses at least 6 or 7 months prior to your wedding. This will give you time to choose the style and color as well as to give your attendants time to get their measurements and payments in. Ordering your gowns at least 5-6 months before the wedding will give the gowns time to arrive in the store, be distributed to your maids, and allow them plenty of time to make any necessary alterations.
Buyers beware…many brides look for ways to save money for their bridesmaids. Very sweet and commendable - but buying your bridesmaid dresses on-line is a short cut that could cost you big. Purchasing your bridesmaids gowns through Mestads will give you the peace of mind that you deserve. If something is not quite right we can happily address the issue and will gladly attend to any errors that may arise when the gowns arrive. If you buy bridesmaids dresses on-line, there is often no recourse and no one to talk to if you have a concern or if you receive the wrong size, color, or dress. Let us help you make bridesmaids shopping stress free.
