I purchased mine Bridesmaids their dresses. I paid about 75$ each for their dresses but I got them second hand but are in perfect condition. The great thing about destination weddings is you don't necessarily need to go with bridal store dresses... you could go to any store and purchase dresses for a lot of cheaper then "bridesmaid dresses".

I bought the Jr. Bridesmaids dress and the flower girl dress, because they are our nieces, and it would be a lot to ask for my SIL to purchase them. My other bridesmaids bought their own. I would have loved to buy the dresses for them, however I have 5 b-maids, and that was out of my price range. If I had one or two girls stand for me I would have paid for them. I think it's so nice when a bride pays for her bridesmaids, but nowadays it's certainly not expected. I paid $250 for a bridesmaids dress in the past and I think that's a bit pricey. I tried to keep my dresses around the $100-$120 mark. I am, however, paying for the girls hair and makeup at the salon, so I think that's a nice treat for them :)

Very nice @@jackshayne0123!

 

Here are my bridesmaids dresses! From David's Bridal in navy/marine

Sleeveless Jersey Dress with Charmeuse Waist Band Style E44239
2 of my girls have this one (including my Jr. Bridesmaid, but it had to be majorly altered because she's only 10)
 
Short Crinkle Chiffon Dress with Front Cascade Style F14847
3 of my girls have this one.
 
Both dresses are gorgeous, comfortable, flattering, and the girls love them! Everybody is happy!

 

 

I too have had to pay upwards of $200 for a bridesmaid dress (NOT including the always needed alterations) and hated it. I haven't decided if I'm buying my sister's dress or not...I guess I could since she's giving me my shower and this can go towards my "thank you" gift or I could make her pay for it herself as payback for the insanely expensive dress she made me buy & wear for her wedding.  I spoil her in general so I don't feel guilty if I opt out of buying hers.  :rolleyes: I do plan to buy my niece's dress as well as the dresses for the flower girls.

This is a long shot, but I found mine on kijiji. Its similar to Craigslist for those non-Canadians. They just happened to be the colour and style I wanted and they turned out to be the right sizes as well. I couldn't believe it!

What a great find!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
