hi i have not asked my bridesmaids but 2 of them have offered to contribute towards them x if you need to ask for help just politely explain your reason for asking most bridesmaids i know have never had a problem helping towards there dresses as they know how expensive a wedding can be xx

I will be buying my bridesmaid's dress (she is my daughter). Getting married in July we are currently looking at dresses in the sales and most of them are well discounted. I have just bought 5 for her that we chose from Debenhams online and she can return those she doesn't like. By buying on-line from somewhere like John Lewis or Debenhams they have more choice than in-store. Dresses do not have to be expensive to look good.

Personally I would prefer to pay for the bridesmaids dresses as I am dictating what they wear. If you want them to pay (or need them to) it would be polite to give them guidelines like colour & length, but give them more choice - that way they get something they love and feel comfortable in.

Wouldn't dream of asking them to do that
