Which line is within their budget? I’m assuming davids bridal is more inexpensive so if they have a tight budget, that might be preferred.

mrsjlc :  my dresses are from Davids Bridal in plum. My requirements were long, plum and same fabric. They all decided on the same gown. Capture2

My sister got the David’s Bridal Plum too.  I think it looked lovely!

My advice when you are choosing between two dresses you love is to go for the cheaper one 🙂

I had a terrible experience with David’s Bridal for my sister’s wedding, but the dresses looked nice. DB Plum:

I’m doing a mix of Bill Levkoff purple dresses including plum.  If you go to Bill Levkoff’s facebook site, you’ll see tons of photos of bridesmaids in plum (which is a very popular color).  It’s more of a bluish purple as opposed to the reddish purple of the David’s Bridal plum dresses above.  As far as Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses go, they’re not as crazy overpriced as most of the other brands.  You can get them at The Wedding Shoppe Inc (online) in the $180 range for the long dresses, less for the short ones.  There are also tons of them on sale on preownedweddingdresses.com and tradesy if your BMs are willing to do a preowned dress.

mrsjlc :  I know this wasn’t your question, but I kept getting the same thing from my bridesmaids/ family. I sent out an anonymous survey using survery monkey, and let them vote! That way they could all share how they felt without thinking about hurting my feelings. I had them vote on 3 dresses (they went shopping with me, so these were the top picks of the girls who went) and listed the price of each, and had a 4th option to say none of the above.

I had 8 girls vote, and 6 of them picked the same dress, when they were allllllllll unwilling to say their favorite to begin with!
