That was ridiculous. I could find a one-shoulder chiffon dress for well under $200 anywhere–at least 6 places within 10 miles of that salon.  Add tax and alterations and you are way over $200.

Mine were $154. My bridesmaids are very well established in life, I just wouldn’t ask them to spend a lot.

@sweetheart03:  Yeah that was crazy.  Then she had 2 people drop out because they couldn’t afford the 1200 and she was find with it.  They looked nice but your couldn’t tell that they spent 1200.

I don’t think I saw the episode you gus are talking about – but I remember an episode once where the bride wanted to choose a BM dress that cost something like $300, $400 – I can’t remember exactly, but it was something like that.  And a couple of the girls said no way, they couldn’t pay that much…and the salon manager or owner, in her on-camera commentary for the episode, said, “Pay up or shut up.”

What??!

I can understand that the bride gets to choose the style of the dress, even if it isn’t the BM’s personal favorite – but as long as it’s within a reasonable price!  I just cannot believe there are brides who would try to bully or guilt their BM’s into spending more than they can afford or more than they’re comfortable with.  And the store owner, on TV, is promoting that behavior??  Makes me want to punch someone.
