My bridemaids are spending between $175-190 for their dresses, all the same color but different styles. 

I was recently in a wedding and paid $160 for the dress.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dress cost me $316 with tax. I thought it was pricey, but I have the smallest budget of the 4 bridesmaids. I said my absolute max was $300, and I’m guessing the other BM’s said something similar, because their dresses are all in the same ballpark.

My dress is gorgeous! Floor length, and I got to pick the style (just not the colour or fabric). I’m going to have it shortened into a tea-length dress, and will definitely be able to wear it again! 🙂

From a bridesmaid standpoint- I dreaded spending more than $150 for a dress I would only wear (presumably) once. If the dress is more, see if your girls are comfortable paying that price! Or, as you said, pay for them.
