Here is mine, I am getting them from a China Dress maker:

But I considered this from David Bridal for $79.99

The only reason I didnt buy these was they didnt have the color I wanted them in.

I needed this color; and 

they had it in the orange but not the Bright Rust Red color and I wanted the girls to match!

David Bridal has a lot of dresses on sale….most of them under $80!

Cant wait to see what you picked….be sure to post pictures!

what we did to save money was to order the dresses from an online vendor.  we went with bestbridalprices.com  they actually have a retail store in illinois, but their website has all the major designers and dresses.  we ordered dessy alfred sung dresses for $135, and in the bridal salon we looked at they wanted $265!  we saved so much, and the dresses arrived in about 8 weeks.  it ended up working out really well for us, and we got much nicer dresses than we could have otherwise.

We went with Ann Taylor dresses, and if you time it right, you can get 40% off discounts, which were super helpful!  It was pretty easy since the girls already knew what sizes they were.

My girls selected their own dresses but they’re all under $200. I believe they were each around $180 but they got 10% off since I bought my dress at the same salon…

$99. From Etsy. They are convertible dresses, so they will all be worn differently.

These are Impressions.  I think they are style #1668.  My jr Bridesmaid or Best Man has a different Impressions dress that straps were added to.

^^ plus 30% coupons  haha   i’m trying to be nice to my girls, I could never tell them to buy a dress for more than this, I’d feel awful for financially burdening them

My girls wore dresses from Dessy’s After Six line (although we ordered them online because it was way cheaper than the bridal salons).  We paid $135 each.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were by Jade/b2 (I think?). They came to just a little under 150 after tax/shipping. My advice is to use your imagination. I didn’t really like the dress when my BMs tried it on in the store (below) but they liked it because it was super comfortable and was the same material as my dress… plus my one Bridesmaid or Best Man thought it would look really awesome if they did different colors which hadn’t occurred to me. It was a little bit of a leap of faith but they liked it so we ordered it in the 3 colors, and got it shortened to knee length (same price as to do a simple hem) and I LOVED them. And one of them at least is going to wear hers again for another wedding… which is always the goal right? Pictured below as on the wedding day, and below that on the day we found it.
