FI and I decided early in our planning that we would be gifting the guys their suits, and the girls their dresses. Yes, we understand that it is a very generous yet unnecessary thing to do, but it was something that we wanted to do.
Now, because my two girls live so far apart from me and each other, this made it very difficult to try dresses on. So, I enlisted the help of the internet.
When I first got engaged, like almost everyone else in the wedding-world, changed my relationship status on Facebook to "Engaged." As soon as that happened, all of the ads changed from social-related things to wedding-related things (and I'm sure that as soon as I change it from "Engaged" to "Married," everything will change to mom or baby-related things - pressure much?!). One of the ads on the side was for Weddington Way, and featured a dress that I had been eyeing for a while from the Alfred Sung Collection.
So, I clicked over, signed up, looked around, and fell in love!
Now, if you aren't familiar with Weddington Way, they allow for you to search through dresses, choose your favorites, and send them off to your bridal party for them to vote. So, I did just that.

This was back in September, when I sent the dresses to my girls. And then, Bridal Week happened in October, and there were all these new dress styles. But, just after that, in November, I went dress shopping with my sister, MOH E, and she found one from the original list that she liked, and chose that one.
When I went dress shopping in December with BM A, she found one that wasn't on the list that she liked, but wasn't absolutely positive, so we went shopping again in April, and voila! Found one that wasn't on the list.
Now, while you may be saying to yourself, "well, she didn't really utilize Weddington Way at all," I actually did!
You see, I placed the order through them! Since my girls are in different locations, and dresses should be ordered at the same time to come from the same dye lot, and the closest store to me is over an hour away, I decided that I would order the dresses online.
Weddington Way was so helpful in getting the dresses ordered, especially because one of the styles needed to be ordered in a different fabric and color, which made it a "special order" even though there was no upcharge.
The greatest part about ordering through them though, is that they send you an email every time the status of your order changed. In the first few days after ordering, I got three emails - Order Received, Order Submitted, and In Production. And that's where we stand now.

I can't wait to see the next status change!
