I would say pay for the difference on their dress, or their hair and makeup. You are not obligated to pay for it all. I know lots of times bridesmaids will do their own makeup so that it saves them money, but I dont think you should have to pay for the dress, hair and makeup.

So far one has answered asking for both which I can't do, so I have been looking at discount bridal stores and other designers. I found one at Davids bridal that is similar but they are in the US and it's hard for one of them to get there. I like the idea of going to a store together and seeing what we can find so that might have to be the route we take,
