So, I have picked bridesmaids dresses from J Crew. Mainly because I think that they are pretty, classic, and the flowy style that I am going for. Plus, they have different styles in the same fabric so that the girls can pick what suits their unique body type. Problem is, they are $250.
I discussed the price with my bridesmaids, and all of them agreed by basically saying, "it's your wedding, do what you want". I know that they are pricy, so I gave them ample time (over 6 months) to get the dress. I also offered to help with the cost for anyone who absloutely cannot pay that price, although no one said they couldn't.
I am paying for professional hair and makeup, and my only requirement is nude shoes, don't care if they're flat, heels, from the dollar store, whatever. I know most of the girls have them. So basically the only expense IS the dress.
No one has come out and said it, but I feel like I may be getting a little bit of pushback on the price (only from one person, so far). Should I pick new dresses?
If someone had expressed a problem I would have maybe tried another route, but no one has come out and said anything?
Am I asking way too much of them?
