57 Grand: Oh-so chic bridesmaids dresses at an impressive price

Nick and I had such a great time in NYC hanging with fabulous industry peers, checking out some super parties and events, and getting the inside scoop with some amazing vendors.
We love the ladies at 57 Grand in the Garment District - Carmen and Saukok are so sweet and incredibly talented. They realized there was an untapped niche and decided to create lovely custom bridesmaids dresses - all under $200.

I personally think this dress (above, white dress) is gorgeous enough on its own to act as a wedding dress for sweet nuptials or a beach ceremony! I love how each of their dresses is named after an NYC street! So fun!

This bow is detachable and you can also order a shawl or bolero for different looks

Here's the scoop: check out their site and pick a color that fits your wedding palette and ambiance. Let your bridesmaids choose a style that fits their body type and personality (what's so awesome is that any of these dresses they really can wear again and again). They request a sample size in the dress/color they like and 57 Grand will ship it to them. If everything fits, they'll whip up the bridesmaid's very own dress in the fabric, style, and color they want. The entire process takes about 12 weeks and the dresses are made in NYC (actually across the street from their sweet little studio).
I love this accessory and want one for myself!
In addition, they have some great inexpensive + chic accessories (headpieces, belts, oversized bows) and are adding more to their collection this spring. Even better, they have partnered with Operation Prom, a non-profit that helps dress deserving NYC area students for their proms!

I am eager to purchase my own Riverside sterling grosgrain number next month!
*Be sure to tell them we sent you!
