I am currently picking out bridesmaid dress inspiration – I want dresses b/w $100 – $150. I know I can ultimately look on netbride.com or house of brides for lower prices, but right now I’m just looking for inspiration and am overwhelmed by options.
I know I love Dessy and After 6. I also know David’s may have some options. I’m looking for short dresses, cocktail party vibe, in a blue that is either navy or just a big lighter/brighter (not full on royal blue.)
Would love any dress suggestions, and would especially love to hear what lines you looked at/chose to stay within this budget.

I picked Dessy and ordered them through Netbride. I had zero problems with them.

Alfred Sung by Dessy. My girls all wore different styles in the same color. They loved them and so did I 🙂

I went through David’s Bridal and did mismatched dresses. My BMs lived in all different areas and picking their dresses at a nearby David’s was easiest for them. Some were able to get their dresses on sale for as low as $80. Worked out perfectly for me.

J crew Leona. With a sale and an online promo code it was $150 exactly!

I did Priscilla of Boston — you just have to pick the right priced dress. Mine were long and around $140.

PS — I’m in a wedding right now the BMs ordered Alfred Angelo long dresses from RKBridal.com. If you order 3 or more dresses together online (as opposed to going to RK BRidal in NYC) — big discount!

*** sorry to TRIPLE post! ***
ha, I thought you said “long”, but you said “short”. My bad! But check out the two places I suggested anyways:-). Both are doable in your budget. Good luck!

Ours are Alfred Angelo, we bought them through where I bought my dress so we got $15 off which made them $138! They have SO MANY COLORS!

I also did Alfred Angelo. They have a few different blue options, including navy.
Each of my girls picked their own short dress in tealness. I think the most expensive was $160, but she could have gotten it cheaper if she looked around/used Pearl’s Place or something.

I picked Mori Lee – they have a ton of short satin and chiffon dresses in their “Affairs” line. And a variety of similar dresses with different necklines, if that matters to you (I let my BMs pick their own neckline). They all came between $130 – $150.

We got our Mori Lee bridesmaid dresses for $132. 🙂

We used Davids and with tax it came to 140 even. I had a turquoise blue dress.

@Gemstone: Do you have pictures of your bridesmaids? I’d love to see how the Mori Lee dresses look on real people!
