9 Bridesmaids Dresses That Don't Cost A Fortune

Wedding season is officially upon us all. With the weather warming up and the post-holiday and Valentine's day engagement stupor wearing off, brides are beginning to wedding plan. While florals are great, it's the dresses that are most exciting, in my opinion, and that includes the ones for the bridesmaids. These nine affordable bridesmaids dresses prove that your ladies don't need to spend gobs of money to be by your side.

If you've got girlfriends traveling in for your wedding or your bestie is in a graduate program, spending the average $673 may not be easy. Minimizing their cost while still keeping maximum style isn't a pipe dream, though. Tons of affordable retailers feature specific bridesmaids dresses and others have frocks perfect for your big day.

Bridesmaids dresses often get a bad rep. With movies like 27 Dresses spreading the myth that brides choose heinous styles, it's no wonder those who are asked to be in wedding parties cringe. From taffeta to patterns to solids, the options are endless, and sure, sometimes, it's true that some options aren't great, but that's far from the truth now.

I believe that bridesmaids dresses have come a long way, and while many would say that you can never wear your dress again, now, that's just not the case. With brands like ASOS and retailers like Target offering affordable and adorable bridesmaid styles, you and your ladies will have tons of great options.

These nine affordable bridesmaids dresses prove that you can get great style and amazing affordability. Your bridesmaids will surely thank you!
