are you guys considering buying them for them? How much do you think its fair to spend. I bought $150-$250 dresses in the past as a bridesmaid and always hated to do that.. thoughts?

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

 

http://www.davidsbri...desmaid-Dresses

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.

    I don't think it's expected... If you can afford it, then great!

    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!!!

      We've ordered online from JJ's House and also TB dress in the past, much cheaper and good quality.  They have plus sizes and also do custom sizing!
