Are you paying for your bridesmaids dresses?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I'm just wondering how many of you are paying for your bridesmaid's dresses and how many have bridesmaids who are footing the bill? Also - how much do the dresses cost, and how much of a say did your bridesmaids have in your choice?

 

My answers:

 

Dress costs $175, it was chosen by one of my bridesmaids (who tried on 5 that we chose together, and was REALLY excited about this one)

Bridesmaids are paying for the dress, I am paying for alterations

 

I'm just wondering if I'm doing the wrong thing here.. should I be paying for the dresses? I know there is probably another thread on here, but I couldn't find one with a poll like this and I would really like to know what people think!

 

Thanks ladies!! :)

I think anything goes for DW... Bridesmaids are USED to paying for their dresses, so its not a big deal.

 

In my case, I AM paying for their dresses as a gift for how much they are spending to come to my wedding........however I found the dresses at JC Penny for $25 dollars and they all loved them! So it was a win-win :)

I am not paying for my bridesmaids dresses. I am still working on finding their dresses but the ones I really like so far are about $200, plus alterations. And it is totally normal for bridesmaids to pay for their dresses. I have never been in a wedding or attended a wedding where the bride bought the dresses. Granted it would be awesome if we could do it, but we just don't have the extra $$. And I have been in two of my bridesmaids weddings where I had to travel across the country plus buy my own dress, so atleast with my friends no one minds covering all the costs themselves. Plus I am getting them pretty rockin gifts and flying to Arizona to spend my bachelorette party with them all before the wedding.

I wish I could pay for theirs but I have 10 bridesmaids and I would be broke paying for all of them...the dresses range from $200-$300 each and they are footing the bill.

I paid for my bridesmaid dresses as a gift. I only have 3 bridesmaids and the dresses were $125 each. I just figured they are spending so much money to travel for my wedding it's the least I could do. Totally not necessary though.

I paid for my BMs dresses. I found them at Marshalls' for $40 and I only have 4 plus a jr. BM so it wasn't too bad. Some will need alterations thought that they will be paying for. I am also getting them a gift.

I paid for my BM dresses. The main reason was because I didn't want traditional BM dresses and I was having a hard time getting all the girls on the same page. I found an ebay seller that had enough of the dresses we picked out in the right sizes, and they ended up being $100 a piece. The girls are responsible for getting any alterations that may need to be done though.

I wish I could pay for mine as well, but I just can't! I've told them all not to get me any wedding present or anything. The dresses I've picked out are about $175. If I have extra money left over I might pay for them anyway, I have 3 bm and 2 jr bm

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
