My dress was originally $1000 but they had a brand new one (c me out of the plastic!) In my size in stock so I got it at 20% off at $800.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were $150 and they also got a 20% discount so their dresses were $120. 

The dresses were also purchased in a state that has no sales tax on clothing so that saved a nice chuck of money.

I don’t have my wedding dress yet but my budget is 3000 ..

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses range from 220-340 as the girls can pick any style they want from J.Crew in chiffon. Planning to get them a discount though!

My dress was about $1100, but I am adding beading, straps, and changing the back from a corset to buttons, so the quote for all that was $400, so finished it should be around $1500 🙂


Bridesmaids can choose any dress they want in the color palette, so i’m sure they’ll range.

My dress was around $1300 before alterations and tax.

I let each of my BMs pick a dress within their comfortable budget (they’re each wearing a different colour so I didn’t care about the brand, just the fabric and length) – so the prices range from $100 to $240.

My dress was $3800 but due to some magic I got it for $950 with tax. The bridesmaids dresses were $275 each, my daughter’s dress was $200. My flower girls dresses will be about $80. This is before alterations.

My dress was £1,600 GBP and bridesmaids dresses were £50!


I intended spending more on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses but found the perfect dresses at £50!

My dress was under $30 from Target. I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man more times than I care to remember, and the dresses have ranged from free (had one that fit the description in my closet already) to $275 for a purple prom monstrosity – I will NEVER EVER pay that much for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress again!!

I purchased the first dress that I tried on EVER! I bought it off the rack.  Regular price $690 asked for an off the rack discount and paid $540!

The Bridesmaid dresses were purchased from the same store for $120 each.  The Jr Bridesmaid dress was purchased online for $40 and looked great!

My dress was originally $1300, but I bought off the rack for $950! Gotta love sample sales.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were $150, got discounted to $130. I paid $50 toward each girl’s dress, so they ended up paying $85 each (including tax). They were super happy about that!

ETA: My flower girl dress was the best deal of all! We went to Burlington Coat Factory after Easter (read: communion) season and had our pick of gorgeous white dresses all marked down to $17! I couldn’t believe it haha

I have budgeted $1500 for my dress including alterations.  I am planning on going to David’s Bridal and a store that sells gowns off the rack that are used or sample gowns.
