I have four bridesmaids for my upcoming wedding in December. My maid of honor and I visited David’s Bridal to try on dresses but nothing really worked out. My mom mentioned Jenny Yoo and I’m in love with the selection of the Velvet dresses. The only problem is they are $295 each. Stepping into the shoes of my bridesmaids, a $300 dress is a lot to ask.
This brings me to my question. As a bridesmaid, how would you feel if you were asked to buy this dress? My thought was to let the ladies know, hey this is the dress I’d like you to wear and Please Let me know if you are uncomfortable with the price. If price is an issue for any/all bridesmaids, at that point I would step in and help pay for the dresses. Is this reasonable or should I find a cheaper option?
