In-stock bridesmaid dresses are the perfect choice when your upcoming wedding is in less than two months. Read on to find out why!
It can be said that there are two types of people: the ones that plan way ahead of time and the ones that just don’t.
If you're the latter, that's totally okay! Just be aware that your options may be slightly more limited, but the good news is -- you still have options! Here's the deal...
Usually, it takes a good amount of time to find the perfect bridesmaid dress. You need to browse your options, choose the perfect color and style, and then all of your bridesmaids have to get sized. Sounds easy, right? Once you’ve checked those things off your list, you’ll need to order your dress, and depending on the designer, the whole ordering process can take up to six months. *gasp*
Thing is, as bride's, we don’t always have those six months. So let’s consider other options, shall we?
You're probably wondering -- what does in-stock even mean? Great question!
So when a customer places an order for a dress that is not labeled as being in-stock, we submit that order to our production facility where it is then made and shipped back to us. This is called a 'special order' and these orders take, on average, 4 months to get in.
However, when a dress is listed as an 'in-stock' dress, that means we physically have the dress in our warehouse, on-hand, ready to ship out right away.
That being said, if you're in a bit of a bind or have a major time-crunch, in-stock bridesmaid dresses are the perfect option for you!
These in-stock gowns are still the same styles in the same quality you love from the Kennedy Blue collection, and did I mention, they're only $69!? Yup, you heard that right! $69.
When you place a special order, the standard delivery time can range from 12 to 14 weeks. Depending on when the wedding is, you might not have that amount of time! This is where the in-stock bridesmaid dresses shine with their convenience, as you’ll receive your dress within 1-2 weeks!
The in-stock dresses are not only great for saving you valuable time, but they’re also budget-friendly and can be re-used in any other occasion you seem fit.
Please remember that these dresses are all of the options that we have in-stock in our warehouse so there are very limited colors and sizes available for each dress.
Because of the variety in our in-stock collection, it's perfect for a mix & match look.
Even if you already have a gown for your role as a bridesmaid, these dresses are great for any special event!
We’re certain you’ll like our V-neck Chloe dress: a stunning sleeveless bridesmaid style that literally looks good on everyone. Seriously, we can't emphasize enough how universally flattering this dress is on every single body type.
Or maybe you’re more inclined to sweetheart necklines? Our sweet and strapless Addison dress has a perfectly flattering neckline and the strappy Lucy gown gives you the same sweetheart neckline, but with supportive halter straps!
If you love lace, you'll definitely want to consider our short lace bridesmaid dresses that are super chic and flattering! Charlotte's V-neckline will give you a sexy elongated look that's perfectly elegant for the big day and can totally be worn after the wedding!
If you want something that can be worn long after the wedding day, Jodie has a fun, casual look that can be worn to a wedding, on a dinner date, or even just during a weekend afternoon!
If you can't find your desired size or color in our in-stock bridesmaid dresses, all of the same dress options are also available for special order! Are they $69? Unfortunately no, but you'll be able to get your perfect size and color, guaranteed!
Finding affordable styles that also maintain their quality is trickier than some may think! Luckily, we promise to provide you high quality styles regardless whether you're special ordering your dress or ordering straight from our stock.

Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
