    So I just bought my bridesmaid dresses from the Limited and love them. With two $50 coupons I paid $65 each. It appears to be pretty blue in this photo but is more of a green/blue in person.

    My BMs are going to pay me back. But does anyone else feel obligated to buy their dresses? They are spending a lot more than is typical to be in a wedding, although I don't expect them to throw me a shower or anything else that typically can cost a lot (my mother will probably take care of this).

    I'm curious to know what others are doing.

        WOW! Great deal and cute dress.

        I too am buying my MOH's dress! But mine is inexpensive and I have no bridesmaids so for me, it's not a stretch financially. I guess it really all depends on how you feel about it. I don't think it's a requirement of an obligation of any sort. Good luck deciding.

          Very cute dress & not a bad price! We don't have a MOH or GM.

            Very nice dress! I'm on the fence about paying for the dress. Very interested in hearing everyone's thoughts!

              That dress is really pretty!

              My MOH is buying her dress, but I am paying for some of her travel expenses.

                I love the dress. I got mine from a high street store during 25% off day. We have 2 BM (my best friend and FI sister) we paid for the dresses, shoes and accessories as a way of thank you for travelling half way around the world.
                If I was getting married at home or they chose a really expensive dress i would have to ask them to pay half i think.

                  great find! They are really pretty!

                  I am paying for the BM dresses and GM shirts. We figured with all the traveling expenses, it would help them out alot.

                    That's a lovely dress. I am going to buy my MOH and 2 bridesmaids dresses and shoes. I think it is a nice gesture. They have all said they are happy to pay for their hair to be done on the day so i think that is a nice compromise!

                      Thanks for everyone's input! I've decided to pay for their dresses. They were very reasonable at $65. For the rest of their gift I bought beach bags and luggage tags. I intend to make all their jewelry, but flip flops to match, sarongs and a few other small things. The cost of traveling does really add up and it seems like a nice gesture.
