@ms_lane:  have you looked at David’s Bridal? They have a section on their website that is $100 or less.

Ann Taylor has some on their site that are $150

Target’s tevolio collection is under $80 for most of the bridesmaid dresses.

I went to Alfred Angelo for mine since that’s where I got my dress and my girls got a simple, floor length dress for $100. I would check there if you haven’t already.

For my first marriage I hit evilbay, and found dresses for $13.99 each new!! I don’t mind a bargain, am not a tightwad but they were exactly what i wanted, what the girls wanted and they looked Stunning. (eBay is my best friend as I live in the I middle of nowhere!!)

bridal stores that do proms– the after prom sale should make dresses relativly cheap.. one store here was advertising 50-65 percent off the month of june( prom is usually april- may)

@canuckandakiwi:  I second target’s Tevolio collection! Also, if you find a style you really like, google the name if it and you might be able to find it for less on a different website. (This worked for me when I googled the Dessy convertible dress)

@ms_lane:  Love this thread! I am wondering the exact same thing!

 

@ThatOneGirl9613:  Were the dresses you got on sale? I want very simply strapless long chiffon and I am considering AA now but I am curious if their prices are comparable to Davids or only sale items are?

The most cost conscious dresses are the ones the bridesmaids choose themselves. ;D

I gave them a color, and said “go nuts.” That way they could choose their price range.

@MarieeToBee:  Mine were not on sale, but they do often have sales. My girls did get $20 off because I bought my dress there, but without that they cost $115 (my girls got them for $95 with discount).

@Bebealways:  + 1. Pick a color and put a bunch of options from normal stores on a Pinterest board. Pick a fabric and/or general style (like lace or chiffon or strapless or ruffles) if you want more matching. 

I picked a neutral color, asked for them to be short, created a Pinterest board of options, and asked them to send me pics of the dress before it was too late to get another and before it wasn’t returnable anymore. They can even wear dresses they already own. 

it depends on how much you care about exactly matching vs cost and them wearing them again afterwards.

I am considering Coralie Beatrix’s dresses on Etsy. Definitely re-wearable and only $80 for the short ones. Plus made in USA.
