They’re strapless sheath style and are made of satin with a chiffon overlay. My 2 BMs loved it so I was sold and bought both. They were around $220AU each including alterations

I loooove the sweetheart neckline and buckle, the girls are going to look stunning 🙂

Mine were $140, and none of them needed alterations, which was pretty awesome! And picking them out was totally easy and painless =)  They are by PrettyMaids

@ozpeony:  I went to the fashion district with my girls because I wanted to haggle big time and I didn’t want them spending more than 70 bucks for a dress they’re unlikely to use again.  The store we went into quoted us $120 as his asking price.  I quietly told them that I needed 5, and they brought the price down to 70 for us.  Then I let my girls do the rest of the haggling and we got 5 dresses for 60 bucks each.  We practically got them wholesale.  =)  I was really happy with the dress. 

Edit: Here’s another shot of the dress on a mannequin.  Sorry for posting twice, but I’m so proud of it.  (mine are royal blue though.)

@mrs.lockandkey:  Hi date twin! I know what you mean but my Maid/Matron of Honor is really short, around 5’0 so the dress isn’t skimpy on her.

My girls haven’t gotten their dresses yet but we’re going to go with Henkaa dresses in charcoal gray.  I wanted to get dresses that were no more than $150.  My girls and I went to the bridal boutique and the dresses I liked online (which had no prices online) were really pricey even with the discount.  They were like 15% off and the cheapest one would have still been about $180.  They were okay with it but I wasn’t so we kept looking.  My maid of honor looked for convertible dresses because I want each of my girls in the same color dress but different styles.  So this dress supplies that:  http://shop.henkaa.com/collections/convertible-dresses-short/products/sakura-convertible-short-dress-charcoal-grey

They’re available in long and short dresses — we’re doing short.  They have lots of colors.  I live in the USA but they’re made in Canada 🙂 but it shouldn’t take us long to get them and it says $128 CAD which is about what the price would be in USD.  Shipping isn’t bad either.  Anyone else try these?  I’ve only read a couple reviews saying they’re hard to use at first but that people catch on quick.  There are tutorials on how to make the dress look different ways.  =)  I’m excited to get them — I ordered material swatch samples and the material feels nice.  

Probably going to order them soon =) woot!  I love that each girl can pick their style but it will still be cohesive.

I love my bridesmaid dress so much that I wish I were buying it for myself. 🙂 We decided to keep it under $200, and this dress was just a smidge under the budget at $188. It’s hard to say what’s reasonable because that’s so subjective. I just asked my girls what they felt comfortable spending, and everyone agreed on a budget. I think that’s the best way to go.

$56 on clearance at Dillards. The advantage of having only one bridesmaid! I loved it the moment I saw it, and just kept an eye on it until it was affordable, snapped it up, and sent it to her. It had been around $180 to start. My Maid/Matron of Honor looks so much like this model, I know she’ll look great in it – but I won’t see her in it until the wedding, since she lives so far away!

@Jenlon:  How long did your’s take to come in? It’s been 10 weeks and they have no idea how much longer it’s going to be (my wedding is in 5 weeks) and I am getting REALLY nervous….
