I think this depends on your budget.  If you are able to pay for the dresses, I think you should.  We worked Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses into our budgets from the beginning.  If this is something youre able to do, I personally believe you should.

As far as paying for some and not others, I wouldn’t.  Pay for all or none.  You know the girls will talk to each other and if someone finds out they paid and another did not, you will have more stress than you need.

I would ask them their sizes and just buy them all in one big purchase.

I have always paid for my own bridesmaid dresses, and do not plan on paying for the girls’ dresses in my wedding.

It is definitely not a requirement to pay for the bridesmaid dresses.  That dress is really pretty and affordable so I don’t think you should feel guilty at all about having them pay for it.  DO NOT pay for some and not others.  There is no way that will end well.  If one is having trouble paying for it, you can loan her the money behind closed doors, but don’t let the others know.

One of my bridesmaids bought my dress for her wedding too and I just wasn’t able to buy hers for mine.  I don’t think anyone accepts to being a bridesmaid and then expects the bride to cover the dress.
