Maybe in this case, especially with that budget, the best plan is to let each girl choose her own purple dress.

I can give you another vote of confidence in what the other poster said.  I let my maids pick their own dresses, gave very loose guidelines, and they looked fabulous.  Each one was happy, comfortable, and in budget, and they will wear their dresses again and remember fondly that it was worn on my wedding day!

Try Dillard’s!! Only one really has to go in and try on the dress. If it looks good and in the price range, email all of them a link to get it ASAP! That’s exactly what I did! Under $100, bridesmaids are spread out, and they all physically had the gowns in less than a week!

@CoffeeBeanKate:  have you checked out david’s bridal?  they have many stores so that the girls can just go into the store on their own (even in ontario) plus you can also order online.  the colours are pretty consistent so maybe the girls can have different styles but the length, straps and colour will keep them looking uniform.

david’s bridal has this vw bm dress on sale for $99 in a purple called cassis.  available in all sizes.  it would look cute with boots.

@CoffeeBeanKate:  It’s a little pricier than your range but you may be able to find something under $100- I’m usng weddingtonway.com and it COMPLETELY takes care of the whole issue of being in another country! (I have a bridesmaid in Singapore!) I would definitely check the website out if I were you. 

They literally have this beautiful dress for $99 in many shades of purple! http://www.weddingtonway.com/products/alfred-angelo-7172-bridesmaid-dress?sku=aa-7172-royal-bloom

@CoffeeBeanKate:  Have you shown him photos or mismatched BMs? Maybe if he sees the possibilities, he’ll understand. If not, another good place to look is the clearance wedding section of the Ann Taylor website. It’ll be hard to find something under $100, so good luck!

I had to order a dress from David’s bridal and I did it online- it came like 5 days later. I would recommend that
