Is anyone buying their BM dresses??

Recommended Posts

I have 5 bridesmaids and I am buying 3 of their dresses. 3 of them are about my age (26) and either just out of law school or just bought a condo so I want to help them with the cost. The other two are younger (a cousin and FI's sister) so I figure that they can mooch off of their parents!

That's a very nice thought of you. I couldn't afford to buy them, but I had them choose whatever dress they wanted. They got them on sale and they can wear them again.

I'm buying one dress for a BM who is having some hard financial times right now. Ironically, she makes the most moeny out of all of us. But, she has the farthest to travel. I'm not telling the other BMs that I'm paying. Also, I chose a rather inexpensive dress $110 so I don't feel that bad about asking the other two to pay. The last wedding I was in the dress was $300 without alterations!

I wasn't going to buy them at first. I felt so guilty asking them to pay for something that they probably wouldn't wear again, then Monday I found these cute dresses on line for $36.50 each, so I bought them each a dress. (my MOH and BM).

 

Since my daughter is my flowergirl, I bought her dress as well. PLUS I bought them all flip flops that we are going to decorate.

 

So yes - I guess I bought them all their entire outfits! I didn't intend to... it just happened!

I paid $150 towards each dress. 4 dresses all together.

Everyones situation is differrent. They are paying quite a bit of money to come to the wedding, and although they fought me on paying that much... the were very appreciative that i did. And they know that they may not get the most extravagant BM gifts now. wink.gif

I am buying mine! I feel that since they are traveling it is my duty. I have been in 5 weddings now and I have one coming up where I am expected to pay travel expenses and the dress, its a lot for someone elses wedding even if they are a good friend! I just figured that since I dont like doing it my friends wouldnt either.

I haven't quite decide whether I am or not...I am sort of letting my BM's pick whatever dresses they want since I'm not doing a "matching" bridal party, so I figured that way everyone can work with their own budgets. Some of my BM's are looking at really expensive Hugo Boss dresses, while others are looking more at BCBG...but I might just give everyone a set $$ amount for them to use whichever way they want.
