I think it depends on where your bms are at in life. I know that it’s a struggle for me to pay for a $200 Bridesmaid or Best Man dress right now, and I would have to bow out if I was asked to pay $300. You should probably talk to your girls and see where they stand on how much they can afford. I’m sure they love you regardless, it’s just a matter of what’s in the bank :).

This Alfred Angelo is really similar and is listed as under $225. I’m sure you could keep looking and find it even cheaper elsewhere!

This one is semi-similar and is listed at under $150:

I know a month feels like forever, but you still have plenty of time to keep looking!

I totally second talking to your BMs and asking them if they’re OK with the price. But for me personally, yeah, $300 would be too much.

I also second checking out Priscilla of Boston’s dresses. They are gorgeous and totally rewearable, and the color selection is fantastic! My Maid/Matron of Honor got her dress there, and she loves it!

A bride I know told me she got Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dresses for $100 the other day due to a promotion at the salon. Maybe there’s more wiggle room on the price?

@ladykatie3:

it was at a Jenny Yoo flagship. Perhaps they are from last season?
