Here in Meridian, my hometown, there are not any places to shop for bridesmaids dresses and it can be very frustrating for brides. I have brides asking me all the time where they should go to find a trendy bridesmaid dress and I have the perfect answer; Bella Bridesmaid.
Bella Bridesmaid is the nation’s first bridesmaid exclusive franchise. Their boutiques carry chic and modern bridesmaid dress designers in an array of styles, colors, fabrics and prices for all brides and their maids.
The only location in Mississippi is in Ridgeland and is by appointment only. They ask that you not bring more than three people with you to your first appointment, which is a smart idea. You don’t want a million different opinions that will leave you feeling confused. Take one or two trusted decision makers and then bring in everyone else for your second appointment.
It usually takes 3-4 months for the dresses to be produced depending on the designer. Since some bridesmaids will need alterations you should plan to receive the dresses at least a month before your wedding. So, a 5-6 lead time is ideal. However; dresses can be rush ordered for a 10-15% fee of the price of the dress.
