I love it too! I saw it in a magazine and oooh, love. But I have no idea how much it costs…

It’s really pretty. It might be worth it as the BMs quite possibly get a second wear out of them (yes I am that bride)

Maybe bring it to a seamstress and have him/her replicate.  I really dislike the WIC sometimes.  Bridesmaids dresses these days are often cut from such simple patterns but they can cost upwards of 200 or 300 dollars.  Its amazingly overpriced.  If you can find someone to sew this for you, maybe they can do it at a lower price and you would be supporting a local biz!  Good luck.

So cute….would your girls want to pony up that kind of dough? If you’re uncomfortable asking them for it, then chances are you know your answer. I just think that if you’re on a budget, you should let that attitude reflect all the way down the food chain. Plus, i’d feel obligated to buy the ladies REALLY nice gifts if i asked them to pay $300 plus for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress…and that sort of defeats the purpose. 

Melissa Sweet, right? Not a cheap dress at all! Cute, but they would likely only rewear it once in a blue moon since it is heavily embellished on the bottom.

To second the PP, my mom made knock off versions of a cute tank dress I loved for my BMs that was $340….they came out to $25 apiece in materials. They were so simple to make though and only took her a few afternoons. 

Ask your girls what they’d be ok paying. Maybe they are all really loaded =]
