    Ok so I was poking around online and found these dresses that I became OBSESSED with for my bridesmaid dresses. Of course, they are $350.00 and there is NO WAY that is happening. I am looking to go no higher than like $150 but I'm having a pretty formal wedding for DW standards, reception in a ballroom, 100+ people, etc and I need them to not be cotton or any casual fabric. So here is the dream dress (keep reading after you've drooled)...

    Hold on, let me take a moment to mourn this too expensive one...

     

    Ok, moving on...

     

     

    And I found these MORE affordable ones at Jasmine Bridal ($158, still a lot...but doable)

    Which are still beautiful, but I'm not 100% sold.

     

    Have any of you found anything that looks similar to these (you can tell where I'm going with this...)

     

    The other problem is that I initally told my BM's I would pick a color and fabric and they could pick their own style, and now I feel awful picking one for all of them...

     

     

    HELP!!! :)

      I've definitely seen affordable and similar dresses to those at www[dot]simplydresses[dot]com

       

      I'd, also, suggest looking at some Bari Jay dresses too.

       

      Hope that helps! =]

        Yes, I will definitely check that out.

         

        I also forgot to add that I told them they would all be in short dresses besides the MOH. (There are 8 of them.) I feel so bad!! :(((

         

        Oh! And Also- do you girls think it is ugly or ridiculous to have them in a print like that (not really a print but you get what I mean...)???

          I wouldn't worry about it. Those dresses are beautiful. Besides, they're there for you and it's your wedding. I don't think they would mind wearing a dress you chose.

           

          There are also short dresses similar to those photos on the website. Worth a look.

           

          Also, I reread and saw that you're planning a formal wedding. So am I! esp. considering it's a DW =]

           

          In my opinion, I don't think it's ugly to have a print like that. I think it's pretty and pops out. I know you're having a formal wedding w/ a ballroom reception but what's the location? Is it near the beach or in that kind of area? Either way, I think it's classy enough for a formal event, but also casual enough for other settings. I would go for the second dress's print for a formal though. The first dress's print would be better for the beach setting.

              Our ceremony and cocktail hour are in the gazebo/terrace on the beach and then we move inside to the resort so yeah, we are def having it near the beach.

               

              And thank you Tropical Bride- it helps so much to know which one people could see themselves wearing! :)

                I would wear the second dress too. Love the color combination.

                  FW, I bought the Belsoie one for me because I really loved it and my bms did not want strapless.  It is a really beautiful dress.  I am planning to wear it either for the welcome dinner or the rehearsal dinner.

                    Oh and I forgot to add that if you got it for $158, that is a great deal.  I paid over $200 for mine.

                      Crap now I can't find the site that had it for that price. Ughh I'm such an idiot.
