Are you paying for your bridesmaids dresses?

Recommended Posts

Here's a thought.

 

Since I'm paying for my bridesmaid's dresses, and we all know that since I'm picking the style and the color there's a high probability that my bridesmaids will NEVER wear the dress again, I may consider consigning them all as a set after the wedding. Maybe I'll get some money back. Who knows. If the bridesmaids really like them, they can keep them, but I'm pretty sure they won't care if I want to consign them.

 

What do you guys think?

Have you thought about convertible dress?  After they tried on both Two Birds and Butter by Nadia they chose the latter to which I paid for.  I narrowed down those two designers and they picked from there.  These dresses as many (Idelli etc..) can be worn over and over again with no need for alterations.  I didn't want the jersey material so this is why I went with the two above.  That way they can truly get some use out of the dresses.

Well can I be one of your bridesmaids?  Idelli.com and other sites like that depending on what you are looking for.  Shoes wow: endless.com, shoes.com, zappos.com, dsw.com.  Jewelry not sure what you are looking for but if you are going for custom and unique try Red-i by Chelsea she is on this site.

I don't find it's necessary to go to bridal stores to find bridesmaids dresses, especially for destination weddings!   I ended up finding my bridesmaids dresses on sale for $30 dollars each at a regular womens clothing store in the mall.  I wasn't planning on originally paying for the dresses, but they were so inexpensive so why not!  The girls will have to pay for their own alterations if need be anyways. 

 

In my opinion, if you are making the bridesmaids pay for the dresses, make sure it's something they can wear again!  The dresses I found are so cute and "beachy", and it will look great on all of them... and for 30 bucks, its amazing!  They aren't the "traditonal" bridesmaids dresses, but I like that about them!  That shiny, thick, all-one-color bridesmaids dresses is not at all my style.

I will be paying for my bridesmaids dresses, shoes, jewelry, along with a gift.  They are spending alot of money traveling to the wedding, for the bachlorette, and for my shower.  I feel it's the least I can do for all they are doing for me:)
