I’m the maid of honor in my sisters wedding and she’s saying that MOH dresses cost a minimum $250 - $300. Is this everyone’s experience? It’s been years since I was in a wedding but that seemed excessive. I don’t want to fight with her about her wedding but I also don’t want to spend a crazy amount of money on a dress I probably can’t wear again. If this is the going rate then it is what it is but I just can’t believe that.

It’s $250 bucks and your sisters wedding, I’d let it go

$250 -$300 seems unreasonable in my opinion. Just because its common doesnt make it reasonable for everyone. For some, the value/memories it provides is worth the cost. For other like me, I would rather get a $100 dress and spend the rest on something else.

You can get really pretty, good quality dresses at online dress shops for like $100 a piece, I don’t know why you’d ever ask someone to spend $300 on a dress unless you’re offering to help pay for it... if your bridesmaids are on their own to pay, it’s really unreasonable to ask them to pay so much.

See if they have a different size for cheaper and get it altered

Guess I was lucky. Mine cost $90 at David’s Bridal. I will have to have it hemmed though.

So apparently this is normal - good to know! Thanks everyone!

Ummm I’ve been in a bunch of weddings and my dress has always been under $200.

Yes, that’s pretty standard.

Just ordered a bridesmaids dress this morning and it was $187 after tax and shipping from a small bridal shop. Paid roughly the same for a MOH dress 5 years ago from Alfred Angelo.

I used azazie and those dresses are in the 150-200 range, but the ones in bridal magazines are that 200-400 range...

Our bridesmaid dresses were about $150

That’s cheap. I’ve been in thee wedding the past three years and each dress was over $350
