Ok, my wedding is about 3 months away. We are having 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen. The problem is we are buying EVERYONE’S outfits because none of them really have any money with new babies and new houses and etc. The only thing is I am having a horrible time trying to find dresses that aren’t going to break the bank. I need to find blue dresses for around $25 or less. Yes-I know it’ll be hard and maybe even impossible. Also, all my girls are plus size. Please someone tell me there is hope!! Links would be awesome! Also I would prefer actual sizes instead of ones like L, XL, XXL, etc. Thank you.

You could always check eBay or O.co!

@MrsGorsuch2013: Do you want dresses that are perfectly matched? Or are you open to different shades/materials/lengths?

I looked at both those places and couldn’t find anything–and i’m open to different ones as long as it looks good and they are shades of blue

I’m plus-sized, and I know how challenging it is to find a beautiful dress that looks good on my figure. Almost everything I like tends to be expensive.
If I were you, I would begin searching the websites of reasonably priced retailers that cater to plus-sized women to see what they have that you can buy off the rack, since any type of custom orders for plus-sized dresses tends to be very expensive.
You may want to check out ashleystewart.com, lanebryant.com, and theavenue.com. All three stores often have sales and/or offer coupons, which may help improve the pricing even more.
Also, I have found some great prices on Ralph Lauren dresses in my size on macys.com if I’ve been willing to wait for them to go on sale. If you decide to go that route, I would suggest ordering multiple sizes to ensure that they fit your girls and don’t sell out. Then, you can return whatever sizes you don’t want.

Asos has plus sizes, maybe them?
So does modcloth:
Some of it will depend on your aesthetic/formality. Maybe you could take all the girls shopping at a mall, with lots of store options, pick a color palette (light blues, or dark blues) and they could each pick what they like best.
Your budget will make it tough. Look for flash sales or clearances if you arent concerned about matching.
These from Target are cute: http://www.target.com/p/strapless-sweetheart-shantung-dress-assorted-colors/-/A-13698787#prodSlot=large_2_6

Might sound crazy but can you/your-mom/one of your maids sew? There are a lot of very easy patterns that you could easily make. I’ve also seen some really cute BMs in skirts and shirts with sashes – that might be another economical (and cute) option.
I saw these on sale at Nordstrom for $35 which is a little more than you’d hoped for but the price might go down for Black Friday etc…
