I have been a bridesmaid 5 times and all of the dresses have been in the $150 – $170 range.

Before I answer your questions, my best recommendation is to ask your bridal party (individually and not via a group text) what their budget is!

As a member of other people’s wedding parties, my dress has typically cost between $150-200.

The dress I chose for my bridesmaids is ~$80, and they got free shipping.

An option for mix-and-match dresses is to put together a board of dresses that you’ve preselected in your color(s), and have your girls choose from those.

I would say average is about $150-200..The dress I bought last year for my cousin’s wedding was around $170 if I’m not mistaken, but the dress my girls and I picked for my wedding was $200 with 15% off.

My girls’ dresses after tax were $150 from David’s Bridal- we went on a weekend that was $20 off so that took care of the tax, which was nice.

I let all my bridesmaids pick thier dresses so that everyone could fit it into thier budgets. No one paid more than $70.

I spent $50 on the bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding coming up in June. I got it on clearance from Davids Bridal. I spent $100 for the bridesmaid dress I wore for my brother’s wedding.

My girl’s dresses are about $40 from Etsy. Try looking for dresses not labeled as Bridesmaid or Best Man. Just nice dresses in department stores or on Etsy.

I gave a color and length expectation and offered to pay once they’d chosen. The ones they like so far are around $100.

You need to ask your party what they are comfortable paying. 

I balked at paying $150 for my girls dresses, I wanted to pay less, but they were the only dress I really liked in the color I liked. I picked up the tab for them because they are coming from different states for my wedding. 

I don’t think I would pay over $120.

I’ve paid 150, 180, and the most recent one the bride told us we could pay whatever we were comfortable with for the $250 dress she chose, and I told her I would pay 180.  Found out she called me cheap, probably not being in her wedding anymore. But anyways…
