I made a post a while ago about how much is too much for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but I’m interested in actually seeing what people paid! So let’s hear it, hive–how much were your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses?

@MrsRevolutionize: Mine were $235 (Alfred Sung).

Mine were around $275 but I paid for them for the girls.

I searched high and low for affordable Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that were long and somewhat fancy in the size range I had (4-20).
We ended up at DB of course – I had some shipped in from other stores as all my sizes weren’t available at my local store but they were very easy to work with and I was happy to get our $180 dresses for $50 including shipping costs!

~$150 each for just the dresses (I’m buying them for my girls, as well as their accessories, hair, on and on).

@MrsRevolutionize: I had my girls choose different style dresses in the same color/length. They are short Alfred Angelo dresses and the cost of the styles they chose varried between $145 and $160, which includes a 20% off discount I got for buying from the same place I got my dress.
I was appalled at how much bridesmaid dresses were ($200 for a SHORT dress is crazy to me. Five years ago I was in several weddings where the LONG dresses were closer to $130). That in mind, I decided on short dresses and went with the only designer I liked that fell in the range I was looking for and hoped for the best, lol.

The dresses I’m looking at are $149 and my mom is offering to pay for more than half. So the girls will be paying like 1/4 of the cost.

$225. My girls limit was $300 and they picked them out.

I think $140 and with a discount ended up being $120. They were long.
I paid around $140 for another Bridesmaid or Best Man dress and just paid $120+tax this weekend for a wedding I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man in.

Mine are short bill levkoff dresses. We bought them at a fancy boutique and the tag price was 220, but they offered them discounts and they paid 180- and that was including tax and tax where we bought them is the highest in the country.
If I were a bridesmaid id be willing to pay up to 200 for short and maybe a bit more for long as I understand they cost more. Anymore is ridiculous unless the bridesmaids are all rich or the bride is helping out.

They were $125, but they were on sale for $75!
