    Hi Everyone,

     

    I had my heart set on an after six bridesmaid dress (it was the only one they would all agree on too) only to find out they want $200 for it. My bridesmaids and I agreed on $100-$150 max. Do any of you know which designers are in that price range?

     

    Her is a pic of the one we all loved;

     

     

    Thanks so much for your help.

      Call around, I found the prices of BM dresses change per store.

        I agree, they all charge different amounts. You should also check where you got your dress. My shop offered a discount for the dress we wanted plus the original price was cheaper then what we saw at another shop. Bill Levkoff is my girls dress designer.

          Thanks ladies, I have asked a few more stores and I am getting the same if not  higher price so it's frustrating. I am now trying to find a replacement but don't know where to look for reasonably priced bridesmaid dresses. Do you know what designers if any are in the $100-$150 price range?

          I know its not really the right time of year, but have you looked at your local shopping mall.  Often, you can find beautiful dresses, that can be used as bridesmaid dresses, that will be within that price range.

            My girls are wearing dresses by Impressions. We are splitting the $200 cost with them. Is that an option? You paying the $50 difference?

            If not, my suggestion would be - if you are comfortable with it - to search for the dress they all like online. There are A LOT of discount bridal sites. Usually the same dress you can get online for $25-75 less than the store. Depending on how much shipping is, it may be worth it.

              I have  thought about paying the difference, but I am on a tight budget. I was going to pay for their hair and make up, so I sent an email to the girls asking which they would prefer the hair being done or me contributing to the dress. 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,

              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.

                Thanks, I thought i was being fair by offering to pay one or the other, I wish I cold do both but I can't.  I am sure we will all figure out something but it's hard when one person makes it harder then it should be.

                In the end its YOUR wedding, and you really truly need to do whats going to make you happy.  You don't want to look back in a few years and say 'why did we do that'.
