    definitely pay for the dresses, but don’t buy the dresses as your gift to them, get them a seperate gift as well

    I am also having a Destination Wedding wedding. I am asking my girls to pay $150 and I’m covering the rest of it. They’ve all told me it isn’t necessary, that they can pay for their own dresses but I’d like to help them anyways.
    How much is this dress? Maybe you could pay half? I’m sure they’ll appreciate any help.

    What a gorgeous look you have going!  I know that a lot of my friends who have been BMs previously loved when their gown was purchased as one of/their only gift from the bride.  Most of the gifts that BMs get anyway are not that amazing, and if you’re asking them to spent a large amount on the dress, accessories and the Destination Wedding, then they would likely appreciate this more than anything else.  I know in some cultures the bride is always responsible for the BMs dresses, but in the US it’s not like that. 

    Another thought, if the dress is really pricey and you know they won’t use it after the wedding, you could buy them for the girls to wear that day and resell them later?  Then you could get away budget-wise (maybe you could anyway, I don’t know!) with purchasing the dresses and getting them a personal gift?
