Choosing bridesmaid dresses shouldn’t be complicated; it should be a smooth, effortless process. It is true that you’re trying to shop for different body types and styles, as well as trying to keep on budget, but you also want your bridal party to love the way they look and maybe even wear the dress again. With The Dessy Group, buying bridesmaid dresses online is simple and straightforward, the way it should be. You can shop and “try on” dresses from home and you might even find shopping for bridesmaids a fun experience!

Since planning our wedding and now, while we help you guys plan YOURS, The Dessy Group continues to be the first choice in bridesmaid dresses for many reasons.

Where to Buy Bridesmaid Dresses Online

Beau-coup Wedding Favors

For starters, The Dessy Group has an extensive collection of attire: they offer everything from bridesmaids dresses to special occasion dresses, flower girl dresses, maternity, men’s and women’s tuxedos, and bridal accessories. Secondly, they work with top labels and brands you’ll instantly recognize like Special Occasion dresses by Dessy Collection, After Six, Alfred Sung, Social Bridesmaids, Jenny Packham, Thread bridesmaids, and tuxedos by After Six and Generation Tux.

If you flip through a bridal magazine or visit your favorite wedding blogs, you’ll see these labels everywhere and that’s because they’re the very best in the business.

200+ Dress Colors

Couples love the color options offered at The Dessy Group: there’s over 200 colors to choose from, making it easier than ever to coordinate with wedding theme or color palette. This is especially helpful if the bride is opting for a mix-and-match style.

Free Swatch

You can even request a FREE swatch of favorite color so you can see the actual color in your hand before you buy bridesmaid dresses online.

Contact a Stylist

Stylists are always available for a chat or a call; they will assist you with your order selection and with anything that comes up during the ordering process. You can reach them at Stylists.Dessy.com or online chat on Dessy.com.

If you are located in New York or Toronto visit the showroom to try on dresses and get personal attention.


Online shopping can be tricky when it comes to sizing; that’s not the case with The Dessy Group. I have ordered here before and the sizing is very accurate with an easy-to-use chart. There’s even a video you can watch to help you take your own measurements. I use a soft tape measure (a few dollars at any local craft store) and take my own measurements. There’s a New Size recommendation tool on their website that assists in selecting sizes.

I love the new feature on their website called the Virtual Showroom. You can enter your measurements and see how a gown will actually look on your individual shape. How cool is that?

An extensive size chart is available from petite to regular to plus-size — there’s even maternity bridesmaid dresses for expectant mothers.

Fast Shipping

Most in-stock bridesmaid dresses ship from their warehouse within 1-3 business days after ordering, which makes it super convenient when you have a busy wedding party or out-of-state attendants. You can get bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen attire online and shipped right to your door. It’s so much simpler than picking up at a mall or store.

You can shop in-stock dresses for quick delivery. Special order styles take 7-9 weeks but are available in a wide range of colors and sizes. Rush and super rush options are available for a small fee.

Inexpensive Bridesmaid Dresses

You can find beautiful bridesmaid dresses online in a range of affordable prices, including the following most-popular collections:


Thread Bridesmaid Dresses

The Thread bridesmaid dresses are one of the notable options for spring and summer weddings or simply warmer climates, as they are made with beautiful light breathable fabrics and have a low price point of only $119 with free shipping. These dresses are included in that unique Virtual Fitting Room option we talked about, where you can see what the dress will look like on your own unique shape, and have many color options as well. This style is available exclusively online with free shipping and free returns on this collection and all in-stock styles, so it’s definitely easy to give it a try!

Multi-wrap Dresses

My favorite bridesmaid dress style is definitely the versatile twist-wrap dresses. It’s almost like having a few dresses, but it’s all-in-one. Guides on their website make it easy to figure out how to tie the dress to create different looks and flattering neckline styles.
