While it's the norm for bridesmaids to buy their own dresses and accessories, it's a super-thoughtful gesture for a bride-to-be to ease the financial burden and choose less expensive dresses for her 'maids. But before you say, "Cute and affordable? No way!" take a look at these fun, fashionable, totally adorable bridesmaid dresses that are all under $100. (Yes, really!)
Let's just cut to the chase: Being in a wedding is expensive for everyone involved. For your bridesmaids, there's the bachelorette party, the bridal shower, and a whole host of other little costs that all add up, even before the bridesmaid dress comes into play. So even if you can't afford to give your girls their gowns as a gift, they'll appreciate your thoughtfulness when you choose one of these affordable bridesmaid dresses.
You don't have to sacrifice style for a great price, either: From a lavender flouncy frock from Modcloth to a modern black jumpsuit from David's Bridal, we've scoured the bridesmaid ensemble scene for the most fashionable and affordable outfits around. You'll adore the array of on-trend hues; fabrics like lace, eyelet, and chiffon; and the variety of playful necklines (deep-V or off-the-shoulder, anyone?) and hemlines these stylish bridesmaid dresses sport. And your girls will love the fact that these dresses are cute enough that they really, truly will want to wear them again.
