Not to worry! With every existing problem out there, someone's bound to start a business to offer a solution. Brideside is a new website that offers an easier approach to dress shopping when it comes to the VIBs (very important bridesmaids).
First, you can shop directly on their site, from their own curated selection of dresses. You can find designers such as Jenny Yoo, Alfred Sung, Dessy, and more. We do wish they would expand their selection to include more designers, but perhaps that will come with time.
Our favorite part is their original video series that teaches styling tips, and more important, how to get properly measured for your dress size. We can see how this would be super helpful for bridesmaids to provide accurate measurements for dress orders.
Lastly, Brideside can even ship sample boxes of bridesmaid dresses for only $10! This is definitely the new-age bridal boutique experience, and will work splendidly for bridal parties that are not all in one location.
The site still feels fairly new, with some slight kinks, but the concept is great and we're excited to see it grow!
