    I only have a MOH and I am going to pay for the dress, since she is spending a ton of money to travel to St. Thomas to be there for me.

      I saw a really cute dress in watermelon dress at JcPenneys this past weekend so I grabbed the opportunity and got them! I paid $25 each for 7 dresses. I am SO stoked that I got the dresses half off!! It was a semi-formal dress. I wouldn't lose money if one or two of my bridesmaid back up at the last minute.

      So ladies, check out the dept stores because they're having a good sale since it'll be fall.

        Hey ladies,
        I was originally planning to ask my BMs to foot the $200 bill for the dresses (I have 3 of them), but now I am thinking of paying for most of them and just asking for maybe $50 to help offset some of the cost (and any alterations if they need them)...do you think that's weird? I have also bought their shoes and jewellery...I probably wouldn't get them any other gifts (maybe something little).

          There is nothing wierd about it. Usually they are responsible for their attire. Only thing is if you are not going to get a gift, then I would just foot the entire bill for the dresses even if it means finding a cheaper one to fit the budget...oh wait, I saw that you bought jewelry and shoes in which case that can settle for the gift.

                  I am paying for the dresses. I told them a color to work with and emailed a few dresses I liked, with the guidelines: no heavy satins, think light and airy chiffon/silks. Then told them I will give them up to $100 bucks for a dress, if they score a deal they keep the difference. Try off the rack, these bridesmaids companies are such a scam.

                    I completely agree!! I got mine for $25 each at Jcpenneys. They all look great!
