I think if you make it clear that that is part of their gift, then its totally acceptable.  Im sure if they are your BM’s that they understand that you on a tight budget and hopefully dont expect some elaborate gift.  Its the thought that counts and Id be super happy to have $100 of my dress paid for!

Ohmigosh, I’m DIYing my girl’s gifts and probably not spending more than $50 on each one, so I think what you’re doing is more than generous!

$100 to put toward the dress is a very generous gift.  As a bridesmaid I’d much prefer that to jewelry, a tote bag, etc.

I know what you mean I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man 4 times and never recieved Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts like the ones I sometimes see on here! I also never expected them. I have also thrown 4 bridal showers and never recieved more than a thank you note- never a shower hostess gift. I think it just depends on your social group. The only bm gift i recieved that wasnt something to wear at the wedding (like jewelry or a pashmina) was definetly in the $20 range. I spent a lot on the dress ($170) and stuff but I had never heard of fancy and expensive gifts like some girls give! I think your girls will appreciate whatever you do for them and dont forget they arent just bm they are your best friends!
