Bridesmaid Dresses?

I am on a budget and I'm trying to find inexpensive versions of these bridemaids dresses:

I want them all my bridesmaids to all have purple dresses, but to have different styles of dresses. I'm hoping to be able to find my bridesmaid dresses around $50. I know, that might be hard to do. But if you know of dresses similar to the ones I've posted or just know a cheap bridesmaid dress site or store, let me know. =)

PS- Any good website for shoes would be appreciated also.

Thanks!

    Why don't you just tell your girls to get purple dresses and a length and let them find their own in their budgets?  When you look at typical BM dresses, the price is usually higher.

    i agree w/ PP.  just let them pick whatever purple dress they want.  i actually found saw this photo on Green Wedding Shoes earlier this week:




    All of the girls are in different purple dresses - but it looks AWESOME!
    GL!!

    I agree--let them search department stores (which will be cheaper than bridal boutiques) for dresses they love. And no need to specify a shoe either, it's fine if they pick their own.

    This is somewhat similar to some of the styles you like.  And you could always dress it up with accessories.

    I agree with pp's. Half of my girls wore purple dresses and we got them at DB. I think they were $100-$150 depending on the style.

    Right now is the time to buy because everyone is selling their spring/summer dresses cheap!!!

    I agree with Opal - Department stores are going to be your best friend for this search. If it says "bride" or "wedding" in the title of the store of the description of the dress you're gonna pay extra. I was actually at Belk the other day and FMIL found a dress that she LOVED but they didn't have her size. They found the size she needed at another store and they shipped it to her for no extra cost. If your girls find a dress they like it should be easy to get all of the sizes you need =)

    Depending on when your wedding is, if you have time, wait for the homecoming or prom dresses to come out. You might find something at a store in the mall. I don't know if you have them where you live, but Body Central. Charlotte Russe, Forever 21 or H&M always have some cute dresses. Maybe try some of those teeny bopper stores where the teen girls get the age inapropriate dresses for going out (depending on the sizes of your BMs)
