    I bought my BMs dresses. I decided that I would since it will be pretty spendy to be at our wedding. Plus they are my sisters, and I wanted to help them out...especially since 2 of the 3 of them are very young (18) and don't have much money anyways!

     

    I just kept my eye on ideeli.com for dresses that I liked, and ended up getting 3 pink convertable dresses for $69 (reg $198) each! I will also buy them necklaces and hair flowers and leave their shoes up to them.

      I bought mine.. however.. there is only one ! Finally, her mother is going to arrange it and put some " bling" on it ... and i'll pay for that as well...I think if you have a bridesmaid or maid of honor.. that helps you in the preparation... they deserve it! ... If you have the money to do so ... go for it!

        What I've surmised from this is it seems based on the amount of bridesmaids you have; those with two - seem keen. Those with more - less so. And if they're siblings or children then, of course! 

         

        I've decided that I'm not going to (except for the one cash strapped BM). I've six in my bridal party - MOH (sister), four BM (BFs) and a jr BM (FI's daughter). We're covering Jr's (of course) but every one else (with the exception of one BM) can afford it. If I were getting married in Paris, like originally thought, then I would have but it's the most affordable destination. I will be getting them jewelry and another non-wedding keepsake plus the convertible dresses I'm looking at now will be no more than $80.

          We've said to the bridesmaid that I will pay $XX amount, if they want to go over that, they need to pay the remaining balance. They seem okay with it. After all, they are getting their food&drink free, plus their makeup and hair, plus a gift etc. What more can they want?

              I paid for my BM dresses, I am having 5 of them, I told them that would be their gift even though I am thinking about still buying something small like a bracelet to go with the dresses. Most of them keeping asking if I want any money for them, but I tell them they are spending so much already just to come to my wedding that this is the least I can do.

               

              I bought them Victoria's Secret Multi-Way dress so they were not too expensive, plus I had a $75 off coupon if you spent over $250, so that also helped with the cost.

                  that's not a very good picture..but the dress is a cotton eyelet dress which i'm SUPER excited for my girls to wear...and i believe they'll wear it again.
