There's no denying that being in a wedding can really add up. For bridesmaids, there's the bachelorette party, the bridal shower, and a whole host of other little costs that can pop up, even before the wedding day comes into play. So when it comes to finding the perfect bridesmaid dresses for your bridal party, consider options that are not only stylish but affordable, too.

Expensive fabrics like silk and details like hand-beading and embroidery can increase the overall price of a bridesmaid dress.

From velvet gowns to off-the-shoulder midis to pretty pastel styles – affordable bridesmaid dresses come in a multitude of silhouettes and fabrics that look and feel luxe. For brides with a classic aesthetic, there are scores of budget-friendly bridesmaid dresses crafted from simple chiffon with elegant necklines. For bold tastes, styles in punchy colors and prints are an unexpected approach. And for the laidback bride, effortless silhouettes like sheath and slip dresses always make for an easy and timeless choice.

Whether you're having a casual beach ceremony or a formal black-tie wedding, we've rounded up the best bridesmaid dresses for under $100 for every season, venue, and body type.
