Of course, I will be choosing a reasonably priced dress because I don't want to break their banks.

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!
The dresses cost $150 each w/ taxes. I have three bridesmaids, so the total was $450. I'm paying for the dresses as part of their gifts (but I'm also giving them jewelry and other gifts for being part of the bridal party). I'm chose to pay for them b/c I think I would feel guilty making them pay for the dresses after they're already spending a lot of money with it being a DW. I chose the dresses myself, but I made sure it was something they would wear again. If they didn't like them, I probably wouldn't have gotten them. The girls absolutely loved them, so it turned out perfect.

@Jess, I'm in the same boat- 8 bridesmaids and dresses are going to cost a lot. I'm trying to find ones I like for less but so far it hasn't happened. Oh well.

My MOH is my sister and my other bridesmaid is FI's sister so their dresses are being paid for - about $175 each. One of them would not be able to afford the dress if it wasn't so it seemed fair to pay for both.
