Have you looked into an online retailer such as netbride? I’m not sure which designer this is, but I used Watters and Watters for my wedding and the dresses that were originally $230 ended up being $156. I have been in a lot of wedding and have usually paid anywhere from $200- $300.

I love that dress first of all!
 
My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are $189 each. They were over $200 but we received a discount and that’s what it came down to. I talked to the girls before and we agreed that under $200 would be the budget that we were looking at.

My girl’s got their dresses for $90-$150….I gave them 5 similar dresses to choose from, they got to pick which one they liked best and some of them did choose the cheapest dress and some of them chose the most expensive….it depends on the person.  I would ask your Bridesmaids what they’re comfortable paying, get an idea of the average price range.   I think it would be nice if you contributed the extra $$ for the plus size dress….very sweet of you to be worried about her feelings!

I saved $45 on my girls dresses just by shopping around. I found them at a store down here for $120 but the store I was planning on ordering from where they live was $165. Basically the dresses only cost $120 but the store was charging $45 just to give them the right to have it altered there. I forgot the term she used but basically it was $45 cheaper if they agreed not to have their alterations done there (seems a bit backward don’t you think?). I’d call around to all the shops and see where the cheapest price is and call the store where you want to order them from and tell them what price you found.

My dress was originally $225 but we ordered them on netbride and paid $165 (no tax and no shipping fees).  I think it’s a great deal.

My girls’ dresses were all in the $150 range, I believe.

Really pretty dress but are you sure your girls all feel comfortable wearing such a formfitting style? It doesn’t look like it would be very forgiven to any flaws.

My dresses were between $250 and $300 each (they girls are wearing different styles in the same color from Jim Hjelm) but I found the money in the budget to pay for them because I knew most of my BMs couldn’t afford that.

Some places will offer a discount if all of the bridesmaids order from the same place. I know that has happened with me in the past when purchasing a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. I’ve paid anywhere from $130-$180 not counting alterations.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were $198 but ordering 5 together got us a 10% discount. All the girls love it already too which is awesome.

When I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man my dress was $350, and I haven’t been able to wear it again.

My girls’ dresses were more than I wanted them to have to spend (190) but I loved the dress and they look great!  To offset that a little I’m planning on paying for their hair and possibly getting them a gift card as part of their bridesmaid present.
