Express Bridesmaid Offerings

Most bridesmaids companies cut your dresses after you order them in order to be able to offer a large arrange of styles, colors and sizes.  While times vary among designers, most companies require cut periods of 8 to 16 weeks before the gowns ship—and it should be noted those are just “estimated” delivery times.  The times can vary from the estimate, especially during the busy season.  This means that, in order to allow for possible delivery delays and ensure adequate time for alterations, depending again on which company you order from,  a regular order must be placed 3 ½ to 6 months in advance to ensure adequate delivery time.  Bellisima has a number of options available to the bride who does not have that much lead time available.

In addition to the value collections listed above, several of our designers offer some of their better selling styles in express options that can vary in delivery from “shipped within three business days”, like Eden’s In-Stock Bridesmaid Program, to delivery within two to four weeks, such as Davinci’s “One Week shipping” and "Three Week any color" programs.  These programs offer a limited number of styles and/or imited number of colors, but can meet the requirements of many brides who don’t have a significant amount of time till their wedding date.

Additionally, most of our companies offer five to seven week cut periods on any of their regular bridesmaid styles for an additional fee (see designer links below for the full range of styles available in the bridesmaid collections).  However, use of rush delivery services  still requires a several month lead time as even rush orders do not commit the designers to a specific delivery date, i.e., they may vary from their estimated ship date if there are delays in their production schedules.  Plus most customers will require some alterations and adequate time must be allowed to ensure you can arrange any alterations needed.

Finally, we do have recently discontinued bridesmaid dresses in our Diamond Value Collection clearance center in our upstairs ballroom.  These dresses are from top designers with original MSRPs of up to $350, but all are priced $89 or less in our clearance center.  However, sizes are mostly limited between 8 and 14 since this is the size most companies include in their bridal sample packages.

Since time is of the essence for the bride who has less than three and a half months before her wedding, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment to talk to one of our consultants so we can get information on your requirements and offer you the greatest number of options possible to help keep the stress of planning a wedding in a limited time frame to a minimum.
