Hi Guys so I have a date to go BM dress shopping with my sister in law. I have 6 0r 7 BM's right now. So my question is did you pay for their dresses? I wish I didn't ask so many girls then I would have. Or if you didn't pay how much is too much? I have been in all of their weddings and have spent around $800 but I didn't have to travel. What are your thoughts on price?

Have you considered chipping in towards their dress? You can always tell them you will pay the first $50 or $100 towards the dress. Or offer to buy the shoes or accessories or something. I am paying for my BMs dresses but I only have 2 and we set a $100 limit (they are picking their own).

 

In my frugal opinion, I think they shouldnt have to pay more than $150 for a dress they probably wont wear again. Just my opinion!

or you could find a dress that they all love and that you love too. my bridesmaid randomly found one they love (for buying more than 1 at a time they get a 20% discount but the dress is still $181). they all love it and are excited to wear it so there hasn't been any comments about having to buy it themselves. i was going to pay for half possibly but then i decided i want them to wear a gorgeous brooch on a section of the dress that is plainer so i'm going to buy them brooches instead. one of my bridesmaids loves the dress so much that she is chomping at the bit to get hers ordered so she can wear it this year to her Christmas party. lol

 

So, i guess IMHO if you find one they totally love, pay nothing and buy them a cool gift or if they all hate it then maybe chip in a little to help pay. All of my girls want to wear it to multiple functions they've already planned on.

My BMs dresses were $135 and I had them only give me $110 since I bought all the dresses for them. So I gave them $25 towards the dress. I'm not able to help pay for the trip but if they needed help, I'd find the money somehow to get them there.
