    You should speak to each of the privately about what their budget is for a dress. Everyone has a different opinion on what is too expensive. One person might feel $200 is fine whereas another might think that's too much. Once, you talked to each girl individually make sure you don't pick anything over what you were told.

    I’ve been in weddings where the dress was 150 & then another where it was 420. Obviously the less expensive the better for a dress they may never wear again. My girls dresses were only 99 Smiley smile

    I would talk to your girls to get a better sense of what they can afford. Mine spent around $125 on theirs, but everyone has a different budget. I definitely would not ask anyone to spend over $175

    It depends on the lady. A student may feel $100 is too much. An established worker making more than minimum may say $500 is too much. A girl I knewhad the means, and paid for everything for each bridesmaid. I suggest being mindful of their budgets, and consider how much you would say is too much if you were in their wedding.

    I’ve typically spent around $150 for bridesmaid dresses. I’m giving my ladies guidelines (material, length, color, website to order from) but letting them pick the style. Some styles are more affordable than others, so this gives them room to each work within their own budgets.

    If you are planning on all of them wearing the exact same dress, absolutely discuss with each of them individually.

    I allowed my bridesmaids to choose from a selection of dresses (same color, length, fabric) on a showroom I created on Azazie. I put dresses in there that ranged from $89-$150 for them to choose from Smiley smile

    I already thought $120 and under was reasonable. One of the wedding I was in she gave us half of the cost once we bought the dress so maybe that could be something to consider? It is a lot to be a bridesmaid especially if they're helping with bridal shower, bach party, etc.

    I had my girls choose their own dresses and shoes so that they could be on their own budgets, and I will be paying for their hair and makeup. I think they each spent anywhere from $99-$150. The bachelorette does cost money since everyone is a little spread out and we had to rent an air b&b, but I do have one that said she won't be able to go because it's too expensive for her (she is in another upcoming wedding) so I'm just mindful of that, and of course I understand and don't hold her to it for not being able to go. 😊
