There’s no denying that being a bridesmaid comes with a lot of responsibility. And to be frank, it’s a financial commitment no matter how you shake it. While a huge honor, there’s much to consider for those chosen friends and family members, from the bachelorette party to the bridal shower to the big day. Each occasion requires an outfit with the most important of all being the bridesmaid dress on your wedding day. Meaning? Your bridesmaids are not only spending money on you, but on a repertoire of outfits to celebrate your nuptials. This is all fair cause for seeking a bridesmaid dress that’s on the affordable end of the spectrum.

As a bride to be, it’s a generous offer to pay for your bridesmaid’s dresses, though it’s not required. Whether you choose to cover the cost or not, opting for a dress that’s under $200 is a sensible choice as there are also accessories to consider. Luckily, myriad brands are changing the game as bridesmaid dresses have come a long way in the style department—and if you've timed your wedding to winter, beautiful options abound from rich jewel tones to opulent fabrics to dazzling details.

With a chill in the air, choosing a winter bridesmaid dress with coverage is a nice touch whether it’s a long-sleeve chiffon cold-shoulder silhouette or maxi length gown with long lace sleeves and an open back. Both fashion-forward options. Thicker fabrics are similarly suitable—a velvet wrap dress in scarlet red or high-neck gown with scalloped lace detailing is stunning. Glamorous details are likewise fitting for a wedding timed to the holidays—consider going for a metallic fabric or simple sheath with beaded straps for seasonal flair. We’re also for minimal design in deep tones like navy, forest green or black. Subtle, yet chic. All of these design elements are available for less than $200 and seem a though they set you back a lot more—a total win, win.
