I get it, that feeling of asking your very best gals to stand by your side on your wedding, only to ask they to pay for their dress. I felt SO awful asking my bridesmaid to pay for their dresses because it simply was not in our budget. With keeping in mind that each of my girls were in different seasons of life with different financial standing, I made it a point to find somewhere they could buy dresses they loved that wouldn’t add financial stress. So whether you’re paying for your bridesmaid dresses or they are graciously paying for their own, I’ve compiled a list of quality dresses that won’t break the bank!


At Birdy Grey, all bridesmaids dresses are $99 and range in sizes from XS-3X, curvy, and bump friendly! I have never personally had experience with this brand, but I have photographed a couple weddings where the bridesmaid’s dresses were from Birdy Grey and the quality is great!


With an impressive selection of colors and dresses to flatter every body type, Azazie ranges in sizes while also giving you the option to custom size your dress by your own measurements! They also feature a try on at home option just in case you’re having a hard time choosing a dress or want to make sure you like how it fits! I actually used the try on at home option for a wedding I was in and ended up changing my dress after trying on the one I loved because I didn’t like it on me! So if you’re on the fence or not sure if you it will fit right, this is a great option and worth the extra money!


JJ’s House is where my bridesmaids ordered their dresses and we were very pleased with the quality! Similar to Azazie, JJ’s House has a large variety of dresses and colors to choose from, along with customized measurements if desired. Dresses range in price but often have sales or discount codes!


Not necessarily specific to bridesmaid dresses, but Lulus still has a great selection of dresses that would be beautiful for bridesmaids dresses! Bonus, they have some beautiful dresses that would be great for bridal showers, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, reception dress, etc. so make sure to do a little shopping for yourself while you’re on their site!


Morning Lavender is not specific to bridal or weddings, but they have some beautiful dresses in soft colors that would be gorgeous for a bridal party! Whether you want to pick a dress for all your bridesmaids, or you’ve just picked a shade for your bridesmaids to find a dress in, this might have some great options for you! Plus, they are incredibly affordable and will be dresses your bridesmaids will easily wear again!


More than likely you have already heard of Show Me Your Mumu. Their dresses are stunning and the colors and patterns they carry are unique and absolutely dreamy! But the beauty does not come without a price tag!


Another one of the pricier side, but this brand is amazing! From sequin to velvet, from chiffon to lace, they have BEAUTIFUL dresses in amazing shades! They also feature the try on at home option and a wide range of sizes to accommodate any body type. They’re worth looking into if you’re willing to spend a little extra!


To my surprise, I have had quite a few brides recently buy their bridesmaid’s dresses from Amazon! Every time I see them, I am impressed with the quality, and price! So if you are on a tight budget, give Amazon a little looksie and see if they have anything that tickles your fancy!
