Evening Collective started in the heart of the garment district in New York City. They started with the goal of bringing expert craftsmanship and design in the creation of our dresses and doing it with an elevated shopping experience. Their goal was for their customers to not only see the detail that has gone into making their dress but also to experience shopping online in a more exciting way. Find out more about how to score bridal party dresses at an approachable price point from the team at Evening Collective below:

With exemplary and personal customer service, we make sure that we are guiding our bridesmaids from start to finish. We have created an interactive showroom that allows for bridal parties to shop together. The showroom experience also incorporates a sample dress service that provides you with the option to choose any dress in any size to try on in the comfort of your own home. Evening Collective is effectively bringing the bridesmaid dress journey to another level and we want bridal parties to join in on finding the perfect dress without the stress! 

Bridesmaids begin their journey as soon as they enter the Evening Collective store. We have created a virtual interactive space for the bridal party to connect, shop and most importantly, have fun.

To begin with, we always suggest that our bridal parties create a showroom. The showroom allows for them to not only select dresses but also choose together! Having the opportunity to shop online with your friends makes it more collaborative and enjoyable.

Shopping online is all about convenience and ease. We hope that when you shop with us, you are receiving the upscale treatment of being in a bridal store without having to leave your home! The bridal party has 42 styles and 39 color options to choose from, which leaves no shortage of selections to make. The showroom also allows for seamless online ordering and tracking of deliveries so that you can stay up to date on your dress order.

We know that choosing a dress can be a very big commitment and for such a special day you want it to look and fit perfect! That is why we have also created a sample service that allows for our bridesmaids to try on any style and size of dress at home for up to seven business days! It is just $15 for a sample, and only $25 for two samples so that you can compare size and style without the guessing game.

Once you have received your sample dress and have finally decided on “the one” we suggest that our bridesmaids then place their orders three months in advance to guarantee receipt of the dress in enough time so that if any alterations are needed (with a trusted seamstress) they can be made without a time crunch! We value the environment so our dresses are not mass produced but made to order which shows the attention to detail that goes into the craftsmanship of each and every dress.

Each bridesmaid will receive their beautifully tailored dress in a garment bag that allows for safe storage and transportation from their closet to the aisle.

We have an elite team of stylists that assist in making sure that our bridesmaids are feeling and looking even more beautiful than they already do!  Our styling team is able to personally guide each bridesmaid through both the selection and sizing process. Knowing that each dress is individually unique, our stylists are able to direct to the best choice when it comes to your body type and color decisions. Our expert stylists want you to feel like they are shopping with you every step of the way. By gaining information about your personality, body type, sizing, and bridal party, they are able to help make sure that you are getting the perfect dress.
