Okay, so I had my bridesmaids try on dresses that we hoped would go with my wedding dress and colors. Everyone seemed to love this chiffon dress from Amsale below (although we would order in wine/cranberry color):
So pretty I think! The problem is: we were quoted this dress at $260 and I think that is wayyy too much to spend, and some of my girls agree.
I need your help: Where can I find dresses like the one above (strapless, cocktail length, chiffon), in a wine/burgundy/cranberry color at a lower price point? Thanks so much in advance for helping 🙂

Did you ask your bridesmaids each their budgets privately before shopping? I agree that $260 is WAY too much for a dress, but some may have budget constraints and a price that you find reasonable is over their budget.
I got a dress in a similar color, but a different fit, from a BCBG outlet a few summers ago for $80-100 (I don’t recall the exact price). I bet David’s Bridal would have something similar for a much more reasonable price.

Yes, I asked them their budgets, and they said “whatever you want, we will get.” I understand they are just happy for me (really nice girls), but I do not want them spending that amount of money!!

That reminds me of a bridesmaid dress I have worn for a friend’s wedding. It was After Six brand. I paid about $160.

@Krises: Thanks for that, it seems like a nice option. I will ask the girls.
@les105: We tried this, but it was much much too purple in color with our wedding colors (wine and satin gold)

@Katnisseverdeen: Have you used it though? Is it a Chinese company just making replicas?

@holly.darbous: you would think you were looking at the exact same dress between the amsale and the donna morgan! So awesome!
