I have just had basically a falling out with my two cousins because they agreed to buy my bridesmaid dresses a year ago when they were $225, and now that they've gone on sale to $180, they are telling me that it is way too unrealistic to expect them to buy this dress. I am just wanting to hear from some other brides, how much were your dresses? Bear in mind, these are from J. Crew, they are short dresses and really run pretty true to size so should not require alterations. This is also the ONLY thing I am asking my wedding party to purchase, as I am paying for shoes and not requiring people to get hair and make-up done, and these cousins live in my hometown where the wedding will be held. With that being said, am I being unrealistic?
