Here’s what I’m using for my Maid/Matron of Honor (I don’t have any bridesmaids). The pic is in white, but only so you can see the dress detailing. The actual dress will be in black.

It’s very “Audrey Hepburn” looking IRL, and cocktail length. I can’t remember the exact price, but I think about $160(?). It’s made by Jasmine B2.

I know there are also a lot of really cute bridesmaids dresses at JCrew, and I would imagine most (if not all) would be available in black.

hope this helps 🙂

I probably sound like a broken record, but I think Black House White Market is great for little black dresses!  This is where my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are from… all of their stuff is pretty classy, not too short.

We used black dresses for our bridesmaids. They were from Davids Bridal and under 100 bucks (on sale on the website). I loved them!

If you’re not set on the idea of the dresses matching, I would imagine you can find dresses pretty much anywhere fitting your description.  Especially right now, with all the holiday dresses out in department stores.

My bridesmaids wore black, both from David’s Bridal, and under 200.00.  They have tons of simple dresses there, and most are under 200.00.

I’m doing black too and I had the hardest time finally deciding.  We decided on Eden Bridal #7266 in Black and I love them, they are simple, but they are exactly what I was looking for!

i’m also doing black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses… i don’t want them to match so i think i may look at Nordstroms with all the girls and see what they like. I agree, with the holidays there are usually great deals on LBD’s… especially New Years party dresses.

I am doing black cocktail length bridesmaid dresses as well. My little secret, well not so secret, is Nordstroms.  We found namebrand, stylish but simple, cocktail dresses in black that are perfect!!  They were under $200 and Nordstroms will also taylor for free on any dress purchase.  I am so happy I didn’t go with an overpriced  bridal store when I could get namebrand dresses from Nordstroms for a better price.  The girls are also excited to be able to add a little black cocktail dress to their wardrobe for future parties.

I love the idea and almost went with them! But design plan shifted a tad.

I am a huge fan of the LBD and think it’s so elegant.

Hepburn all the way!  Gotta have pearls too. (good present for the bm’s btw).

Hi! This is the dress I think I’m going to use for my BMs, only I’m doing grey (I think). It’s $112 from Netbride.com–style D447 from Alfred Sung. You can’t really tell in the pic since it’s black, but it has some cute pleats on the top. Alfred Sung has a lot of reaaally cute dresses, and reasonably priced. I also think Nordstrom is a good idea…especially since they probably have a lot of LBDs for party dresses, which may even go on sale soon! Good luck. Your bridesmaids will love you for picking something totally re-wearable 🙂
