Prices are all over the map ranging from free (something they already own) to thousands of dollars.  Can you chip in any money to the cost if you decide that they have to buy something new?  What are their sizes.  If they are straight misses sizes, try a department store rather than a bridal shop.  That can save money.  Or they can buy their own black dress in a specified length or material.  If they are thin and not too tall, Forever 21 makes decent party dresses on the super cheap (they become a lil inappropriate if your bmaids are bigger or taller though).

mine were 89.00 which i thought was reasonable. about 115 with shipping.

i bought from http://www.lightinthebox.com

to keep it in budget i would suggest looking at places that dont particularly sell “bridesmaids dresses” lNordstroms, Macys, Forever 21, lulus.com, modcloth…places like that

Davids bridal has a great selection of dresses for $100 bucks and you can ususally get them in larger sizes for pregnant women you might have to spend money on having it altered. you can also let them pick out their own shoes just pick a color so then they could use something they already own.

Good Luck!

I agree with heather25 that there is a really big range in prices. My goal was to keep it $125 or less (although I didn’t think I’d be able to get what I wanted for less than $100). We ordered the dresses the other day and they were $129 (plus tax), so it almost met my goal. I offered to cover shipping since I still felt a little bad about the cost though.

I think anywhere up to $200 is ok to ask for however given your description of their situations, I’d be inclined to not ask for more than probably $150.  Beyond that, you should help out.
