    My bridesmaids are paying for their own dresses but they were only $36 from Victoria's Secret. I purposefully chose inexpensive dresses because I know they are already paying for the trip. I'm also letting them choose their own shoes and accessories.

    Final guest count... 63 adults and 10 kids!!

      I decided to pay for them...there's two girls (my mom is paying for my sister's). The dresses are $179, and they will have to have them altered if they need to. I don't think I'll give them very over the top BM gifts though.

        I'm thinking I will probably pay for my BMs dresses...I will only have three, and I know finances are tight for them. I don't want them to be burdened by participating in the wedding. I want them to enjoy it too! If I have to have one less flower per centerpiece or something to make up for the cost, so be it :)

          I think that's totally fair :) I am letting my bridesmaids wear whatever knee length black dress they want so they are all comfortable and happy. I'm having a custom hair flower made for them in my color so they all have something similar... and it's much more inexpensive

            I bought my bridesmaid's dresses. They were $129 each from alfred angelo and I was able to swing this since I have 3 girls. I recommend looking there for dresses because I had a $20 off coupon per dress that brought it down to $129 and I love the dresses! I told them they are responsible for their hair, shoes, and any alterations. I will probably get them a nice gift too.

              I did buy them only because I found it for 14.50 online at forever 21. They just came and are sooo pretty and the perfect color, here is the link to check.... http://www.forever21....833580&Page=1#

                i plan to but it is hard to find a decent but cheap dress!

                I looked at GoJane website and their dresses looked really cheap. I also found a dress that is on sale right now at JC Crew but still need to look around first.

                I want to pay for their dresses but they take care of their shoes and jewelry.

                i'm still undecided if i want to pay for their hair/makeup.

                  I have 1 MOH and I will be paying for her dress because she is not working right now and I didn't want her to have the pressure of trying to budget paying for a dress she may only wear once for my wedding. For all the years she has been a supportive good friend to me paying $150-200 for her dress doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

                    I lucked out as my Mum is paying for my 2 BM's dresses (my sisters!). I get the generosity without the bill, :o)

                    We will pay for their shoes / jewelry / hair & make-up.

                      I want to have 2 MOHs and 5 Bridesmaids. I was going to pay for their dresses, make up and hair. It came to a staggering almost 2k after some calculations. I do not know how I am going to choose from 5 bridesmaids!

                      If you guys find any cheap but cute dresses, please let me know! Paying $100 per dress is not an option anymore. My mom will pay for my sister and I don't feel comfortable asking her to pay one more dress.
