Bridesmaid Dresses

Every blushing bride needs her leading ladies looking their best, and that’s just what they’ll do in dresses from The Hope Chest!

 

 

Just like with our wedding gowns, great care has been given to the selection of bridesmaid dresses we showcase, and the brands we currently represent have met our standards for design, quality, service and affordability. Our extensive collection of beautiful bridesmaid dresses includes a variety of timeless and trendy styles, which are available in a wide array of colors to perfectly compliment your wedding gown. Our bridesmaid dresses range in price from approximately $115 to $300—the majority average $150-$190. Most are also available in white, ivory, champagne and blush as simple, inexpensive informal wedding gowns. Many of them make fantastic mother-of-the-bride/groom dresses as well, especially when paired with a jacket or shawl.

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to imagine what a dress will look like on the body when it’s hanging on a hanger, crammed on a rack with hundreds of other dresses? Well that’s exactly why we have a closed stock room (meaning only our staff is allowed in where the dresses are hanging). This is where pictures come in handy! The above galleries offer a virtual look into our bridesmaid dress inventory, so browse through them to see if you discover anything you like for your bridal party. If so, please schedule an appointment and provide us with a list of your favorites. We will gather a group of dresses based upon your selections and have them ready to try on when you arrive for your appointment. We have found this process saves everyone time and allows us to best assist you. If you have any questions about what to expect during your appointment, please don’t hesitate to ask!

We can special order bridesmaid dresses in sizes 2 – 30W, but we are at the mercy of the manufacturers when it comes to sample sizes, and they primarily provide us with samples in sizes 10, 12, or 14. Consequently, you should plan to have one of your bridesmaids who is closest to this range try them on to narrow your selection. Once you have it down to 2-3 styles, then other members of your party can try them on if you want. Even if they’re a little smaller or larger than a particular dress, they should still get a feel for what the styles will look like by pulling them in. We do have a select number of plus size samples, so please inform us if you are in need of them. Regardless of the size of your bridesmaids, we always take measurements to decide what size to order, and never rely on how a sample fits.
