This is my first post here! I am getting married in September 2015. I have 5 awesome bridesmaids, each with very different body types (ranging from probably sizes 6-20). They also have equally different levels of income. So I have two questions. 1. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to look for fairly inexpensive bridesmaid dresses that could fit a wide range of sizes? I really would love to let them decide on the style, but want to point them in the right direction. I also don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. We looked at JCrew dresses first, which only go up to size 14 or so. 2. Is it appropriate to offer to pay for some of their dresses but not others? I basically just want everyone there to have fun and not worry about money or what they look like. Help!

For my bridesmaid dresses we went to David’s Bridal they have all kinds of sizes and if I remember correctly they have plus size options as well. They were fairly priced and they always have sales on! I think that if you talk to the ones you are willing to pay for privately it won’t stir the pot with other bridesmaids.

For the size range, i would probably shop at a bridal store, then at least you are able to get the same dress in varies of sizes.
Our bm’s dresses were $218. I only had say in the color but the bm’s had total say on the dress and price.

Tayonet: +1 to the PP, definitely try David’s Bridal for inexpensive in a wide range of sizes.

I had an awesome experience at David’s Bridal. My FMIL is a fuller-figured lady, in the 16+ range, and she found a dress she really liked at David’s. My bridesmaids were all on the more petite side, and that did cause us some problems (one is a size 0, which David’s doesn’t carry in store) but otherwise the dresses were all relatively inexpensive and the girls were able to pick from a good selection all in the same colour/material as one another.
The dresses they purchased were between 90$-120$, and right now I know David’s is having a 20$ off bridesmaid dresses sale 🙂

I am the right person to answer the questions! haha, my sister just bought her wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses from one online shop owner. I first got the dress there and then my sister got the following bridesmaid dresses including her wedding gown from the shop owner on Etsy.com and the shop name is 21 4EVER. The girls for her wedding is also of different sizes and body shapes. What makes us all happy is that that shop can provide free custom made service and they can make the dresses according to the girl’s measurements you offered. When we got the dress, we tried on them and each one fits perfectly and the dress price is reasonable. I hope my experience can help you. 🙂
