My BM’s dresses were $110+ alterations but that’s because we caught them on sale, normal price was $130 I believe. I don’t think your’s are too expensive, that seems in the normal range for what I saw when I was looking.

Well, to sum up the scenario, I’ve had my older sister complain about the cost of the dress (as noted above). Shortly after, my younger sister flat out declined to be a bridesmaid.
It wasn’t only because of the cost, but because of what I was asking her to do along with it. Most of her reasoning is because she didn’t want to “show up early” to get ready with all of us, or have to take the time to stand around for pictures. She’s 20 and very self-interested. I get that.
I’ve since had another bridesmaid drop out last week, a month before the wedding. With this much of a headache, I’ve conceded and chosen a new dress.
I don’t really care what the dress looks like as much as I do having the women I want to be my bridesmaids. This is the dress I’m going with:
at #53.00, I don’t think they can complain. At this point, I don’t even care. I just want to get it all over with. The other dress was totally cute, but this will work. Everyone can now participate by being a bridesmaid, except my younger sister, who would rather sit in the sidelines with her boyfriend.
