What price range are you trying to stay within and is it the Pewter color at Davids that you are looking at or a different one?  That way we can give you some better ideas hopefully.

I got my bridesmaid dresses at Target, actually! 40 bucks each! Here’s what I ordered: http://www.target.com/MossB-Strapless-Bubble-Drs-Slvr-Brch/dp/B001DYPB2O/qid=1225322603/ref=br_1_15/182-7652210-5219456?ie=UTF8&node=1104830&frombrowse=1&rh=tgt%5F2%3Agray&page=1

I’m not sure if that’s what you’re looking for, and it’s lighter than pewter…but…a place to start.

Try looking at non-bridal stores and lines. There are some amazing, affordable options out there. Most big stores allow you to sort by color, too. Other places that I looked included Macy’s, Nordstrom, JC Penny, Bluefly.com, BCBG….

Good luck! Out of curiosity, what are your colors? Mine are silver with punches of lemon yellow for our wedding next July.

Also try bluefly.com

They have a gorgeous weddings and bridesmaid section.  Designer dresses they’ll wear again at a discount price.

I second SpaceC06’s suggestion of Alfred Angelo–they’ve got what looks like a pretty pewter/charcoal color (at least it looks pretty online!).  I looked at a few of their dresses a few weeks back and I don’t think any of them were over $200.  Bill Levkoff also does a gray satin that I think is more of a medium gray color (and I liked the feel of the Levkoff dresses over the Angelo ones).  Some of the dresses are over $200, but I remember seeing several that were in the $150 to $200 range, especially from the Classics collection.  Good luck!

You can check out nordstrom where you can sort the dresses by color.  This dress is really pretty: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2962717/0~2376776~2374327~2374331~6014133?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6014133&P=1 plus it looks like it would flatter many body types and you can wear an actual bra with it (probably racerback).  It’s within your budget and for sure re-wearable.

You can also look here where you can sort dresses by color from many online stores: http://www.like.com/womensdresses-search–gray_dresses–color-steel%20grey

A little over your price range, but also very pretty and re-wearable: http://www.bluefly.com/Vera-Wang-steel-pleated-hammered-satin-dress/cat60019/300811901/detail.fly

We had pewter grey dresses from Bill Levkoff (style #455) here they are in action:

They were super cute and very high quality, and cost $135 (with free shipping)!  I got them here:

 Check out Bill Levkoff’s other styles, the color is "Euro Grey"
