I want just a ballpark figure of how much to expect the bridesmaid dresses to run so that I can give my girls a guidline on what to budget, and also because if I can afford to I would like to surprise my girls by paying for their dresses. I realize that the price will vary depending on dress style, designer, and bridal shop so just for conversation sake lets say a knee length,chiffon dress from Debra Dees, Brides n bells or Davids Bridal.

It’s such a large range.. I’d say budget between $120-$170 for that style.. from David’s at least, not sure of the other stores.

@X0JLYNN03: ok! ya we don’t actually have a David’s Bridal here but I threw that in because I think that is your guys’ equivelant of the two stores I mentioned from my area 🙂
Thanks for your input!

It’s always a good idea to talk to your bridesmaids individually first to see what their budgets are. Don’t put them on the spot in a mass bridesmaid email! Because they may feel pressured to name aprice higher than their comfort level because someone else named a higher price first. If you find a dress over the budget you should supplement the difference.

@futuremrsfitz18: Oh I completely agree and have already talked to the girls but just want to make sure the number they choose is realistic…not that they say $50 and then we go to the shops on there is not a dress under $150 lol
