I am having my bridesmaids dress in Vera wang 21m12 in a lavender and 22m02 in lavender and Alvina Valenta 9775 in Eggplant. Im so nervous about their opinions, BUT it is my wedding BUT I want them to be happy and feel comfortable. @ of them will be in the Alvina b/c they are bigger/bustier. There will be 2 or 3 in lavender and both are strapless dresses. The price points are a bit high 200-280 BUT they wedding is exactly a year away.

Honestly, that is a lot of money to spend even though the wedding is a year away. I would discuss how much your bridesmaids are willing to spend on their bridesmaids dresses. Although its your wedding, I don’t think you would want to have them spending something they can’t afford on a dress they’ll probably never wear again. Just because the wedding is a year away does not mean that the price point should be higher. Although theoretically they could save up for it, my issue would be spending that much money on a dress thats only going to be worn once, not my ability to pay for it. Assuming they are okay with spending that much money, I think the dresses are nice. Just keep in mind the other expenses that come along with being a bridesmaid. I would look into some more affordable alternatives in case your bridesmaids aren’t able to spend that much money. The bridesmaids dresses I have bought have been in the $100-$150 range and I think even that is pushing it for a dress that will not be worn again. This is just my personal opinion, so you should discuss budget with your bridesmaids. Good luck
