I got mine at the same place I got my dress, Alexandra’s Boutique in Fall River. If you buy your dress there they offer great discounts on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (10% off with free alterations). The dresses we went with were around 217 but ended up being around 200 with the discount, not bad!

I got mine from David’s Bridal.  I was really trying to keep it as close to $100 as possible and they ended up being $139.  I don’t want my wedding to cost others alot, and one of my bridesmaid’s entire family is in our wedding, so that equals to her buying her dress, a flower girl dress, and two tux rentals which adds up quickly.  And as much as I would love to, I can’t afford to help any of them out with the cost, so that’s why I was trying to keep it so low.

I ordered mine off Etsy. I bought my gown at Allegria in Belmont and they have a HUGE Bridesmaid or Best Man selection.

I got my dress at Cristina’s in Andover, and they did 15% off for the bridal party. I’m not picking a dress, just a color, but a couple of the girls are going with Bill Levkoff dresses they found there. I told them they could set their own budget, but it looks like 2 of them are spending around 175, and one is totally splurging on a designer dress she knows she’ll wear a lot.

My mom and I are actually making ours.. they are a copy of twobirds’ 15-way convertible dresses… Dessy makes one too… $140-295 price range. Just ordered all the fabrice yesterday, with 50% coupon, works out to $32 each dress!!!!

I realize this is not helpful, so to answer your original question, we were shopping at Party dress Express in Fall River (or East prov? I forget) and our budget was under $130

most people would like to choose them from shops online, as there are more good options. Usually a bridesmaid dress spends at lest 100$.

Bridal by Meredith in North Andover, on Rt. 114 – Meredith has the patience of a saint and it’s a family run business. Both her and her daughter are amazing to work with! Love it there. I also “shopped” around for my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to see which local store had the best prices. She beat everyone significantly. Check her out!

@Loveylove13:  Which JCrew ones? I’d love a classy black one but haven’t found any that I like from them (I want my Bridesmaid or Best Man to be able to re-use)

My Maid/Matron of Honor got hers at David’s Bridal. My Future Sister-In-Law will be 2 weeks away from her due date, and she’s REALLY poor, and we maybe missed her shotgun wedding disaster, so I’m letting her get whatever blue dress she wants in any shade of blue she wants from whatever store she wants.

I’m sad that my BMs won’t match, but…
