Also, the dress is $180. So that leads me to a question - one of my BM says she wants to look for it online or in another boutique, for a better price. Trisha, this might be a question you will be asked... I don't know what to tell her.. At first I told her, well see what you can find and get back to me & then we will decide what to do... But then another one of my BM said she didn't mind the price. Does it matter where they get it?
My take is that it doesn't matter where they get it so long as you don't care if the dresses are from the same "dye lot", your BM buys the dress from a reputable online vendor who's not likely to rip her off, and she knows her own measurements so she can order the right size.
Personally, I don't know that I'd see or care about the difference in dye lots, so I don't think I'd care, but some ppl are more exacting than me. I'd also check reviews of the different shops to make sure my BM's go to a reputable one, and I'd ask my girls to have their measurements done by a professional to ensure as much accuracy as possible.
