i told my BMs to pick their favorite black dress they wanted from the jim hjelm line… theyre all wearing different styles in black chiffon… i think the price varies from $200-$300 depending on the simplicity of the gown…

they are paying for their own hair and makeup – i’ve offered a makeup artist if they want – it’s all up to them and what theyre comfy with

shoes are also their own choice so long as they are silver strappy type

My bridesmaids got a great deal- we had already picked out Ann Taylor Celebrations dresses- and when we were ready to order, they went on sale to only $60 bucks! 

 I am paying for their makeup and hair, but it’s up to them how they want to wear their hair.  Shoes are their own choice- they all have lovely taste!

i did the same thing as anti-zilla — jim hjelm dresses in mocha satin, they could pick the style (as long as it wasn’t floor length). they ended up ranging from 154-182 at netbride.

they are paying for hair and makeup (only if they want it, i gave them the option). i’m paying for a manicure for everyone. they can wear any shoe they want as long as it’s not fugly. =)

$150 for the dress, $65 for the shoes, and the girls are paying. I am paying half for their hair and makeup, so they will owe $75 each for those.

My girls spent 170 total on a bill levkoff dress (that was after a 15% discount due to the number of bridesmaids I had and my bargaining with the owner!!).  I’m not planning on paying for their hair or makeup – but I’m leaving the option of getting either done up to them.  They can get it done or do it themselves – doesn’t really matter to me!!!

They paid $200 for the dress after I research a discount code for JCrew that gave them $50 off and another code for free shipping! I told them they can pick the shoes as long as they are a light gold in color. Again its thier choice if they want to have their hair and makeup done. Each girl is different so I like to let them be in control of everything but the dress.

My bridesmaids are wearing cocktail length, black and wearable again dresses from Ann Taylor for around $70.

We are going to all do our hair/make-up/nails together so that will be free 🙂

Shoes will be black ones of their choice.

We’re also very recent college grads with everyone having 5-9 years out of the workplace due to school so I’m trying to keep everything as cheap as I possible can!

There is a quantity discount of 4+ so it is $335 pre-tax. The girls will be paying for half of the dress and hair and makeup. They will cover shoes on their own (they get to choose their own gold shoes).

My bridesmaid dresses ran between $120 – $145 each — I gave them 20 different dresses to choose from, all in the same color. They are purchasing a low-heeled silver shoe of thier choice.
