Where to Find Affordable Bridesmaid Dresses

affordable bridesmaids dresses

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — Weddings. Are. Expensive.

So if you’re looking for affordable dresses for your girls that won’t break the bank or look cheap, I’ve collected a few sites for you that offer affordable dresses with good reviews because we all know that’s a big part of what goes into deciding where we get things!

Most of the dresses below are under $100, and plenty are around $50 or under!

As someone who worked as a bridal stylist at David’s Bridal, I do think they have some really great options, plus some newer options I’m going to tell you about, too.

All of my girls got their dresses from David’s, but there are also a few places besides the obvious that you might not know about. And they’re all actual reputable sites! (Because you never know with the internet.)

I’d also like to tell you you should be looking for your bridesmaids dresses at least 6 months before your wedding as they can take a while to come in, you need time for alterations AND you need room in case something goes wrong!

If you’re planning to order from an online retailer, order with more than enough time to make returns and get other things if the dresses don’t work out! I see way too many people wait until 4 months before the wedding or less to get dresses and they end up having to settle and not get what they wanted!

Forever 21

Unexpected, right? They actually have a specific line of dresses that are for bridesmaids. A lot of what they have is a bit too revealing for me, BUT mixed in to all that they do have great bridesmaid dress options.


One of the best options I’ve found! This one offers extra length dresses for your tall girls AND maternity dresses! That’s a big deal.

David’s Bridal

The obvious one. But there are a ton of affordable styles. AND they just released a new line that’s really affordable and really cute. The quality is great and they look fabulous on everyone I’ve seen try them on.

The new line is called DB Studio bridesmaids. Keep in mind, this new line only comes in the most popular colors (burgundy, navy and dusty rose). I also recommend waiting until they have sales, which is fairly often. Get those puppies at a discount! Most of them are 150 and under, especially during the sales. And DB dresses are SUPER easy to re-sell online after the wedding (trust me, I’ve done it!)

Rent the Runway

For the bride wanting to do a bit fancier of a wedding but don’t want to have to have your girls pay an arm and a leg, let them RENT their dresses! I love RTR and have personally had an awesome experience with them. They have a lot of options for any occasion.


Another one I bet you didn’t expect to see on here. They have a few dresses on their site that you could use as bridesmaid dresses.


Another one you might be surprised by, but an AWESOME ONE! People sell everything on Etsy. There are dresses GALORE. You can seriously find anything wedding related on there, I got so much stuff off Etsy for my wedding and I loved ALL of it. Plus, a lot of these dresses have great reviews!

Pretty Little Things

This site has a TON of dress options for any occasion. Not as common to find something I’d consider “bridesmaid” worthy, BUT because they have so many options, I wanted to share as maybe you’ll find something when you look through!


You can get both short and long dresses here and there are plenty of options under $100! There are some tea length dresses on here, too, which can be hard to find. You can also sign up for their email list and get 20% off your first order. Winning.


I will forever recommend Amazon for everything because they HAVE everything. Affordable options with great reviews everywhere! I got my flower girl dresses from Amazon and loved them. This is a great option for staying on budget.

Red Dress Boutique

Another affordable place to find not only dresses, but cute clothes, too! This is one most people don’t know about but it’s a hidden gem. I tend to think their style is more boho chic, which is super popular among weddings these days. Get 10% when you join their email list!


This site offers a TON of options, and they’re all extremely affordable. I’ve had some hit or miss experiences with this site, but when it’s come to dresses, they’ve always been great. When I shared this dress for the Holiday Looks blog post, I got a ton of DMs asking me about it because people wanted to use it for bridesmaid dresses! Just read the reviews before buying and you should good to go!

Are there any places you use for affordable bridesmaids dresses that I missed! Comment below and let us know!

  • I think I’m just gonna skip long sleeve season and go right into sweaters. Since I’m always cold, it should work out 🤷🏻‍♀️. I have a very strong love of sweaters and own more of them than anything else. I love to be warm! PS yes, that white stuff on my jeans is SNOW ❄️ WI was freezing 🥶
I’m currently writing my Amazon fall favorites post and this sweater is part of it 🥰. It can we worn off the shoulder like this, one shoulder or as a cowl neck. Talk about versatile 🙌🏻. I also get so much love on this hat, I linked it in this years version which comes in cream and pink.

  • Do you prefer neutrals or lots of color? I obviously love neutrals but pops of color/pattern are my favorite way to spice things up. I’m a big fan of scarves, and this one is a great way to participate in the leopard print trend without it being too much for me. Accessories are my favorite way to change up my wardrobe! 
This scarf and belt are both @amazon wins 🙌🏻 Shop this look at Danithom.com/shop or in the @liketoknow.it app ❤️ http://liketk.it/2FUTj #liketkit #danithomblog
  • An important thing to understand about having a capsule wardrobe is that it can be whatever you want it to be. So many people think they have to stick to the same 10 things and rotate through them. If that works for you, great! But it’s also ok to have more variety if that’s what makes you happy. I used to try to limit myself to a number, but I wasn’t happy with my closet. So I adjusted it to what I felt comfortable with and it’s been great ever since! Don’t force yourself into a box just for the sake of it. 
This cardi is such a pretty color and only $25! Shop this look at Danithom.com/shop or in the @liketoknow.it app ❤️ http://liketk.it/2FSKO #liketkit #danithomblog
  • Heading back home today 🏡 I can’t wait to see my sweet babies!!! I miss them terribly. This weekend was wonderful and it was great to be with family, but I am definitely ready to be back in my own bed 🛌 with my fur babies invading my personal space 🐶🐶. How was your weekend?!

  • This is me braving the cold 🥶 for the gram 📷 to show y’all this beautiful view! The trees up here are sooo pretty 😍🍁 I shared about this sweater on stories earlier, I’d def wait until it goes back on sale to snag it. I also linked a really similar option and these $15 high waisted jeans that I’m loving. Happy Sunday!

  • Cuddled up today in this cozy $30 OTS sweater 😍 It’s currently snowing here in Wisconsin so I’m curious how the wedding we’re here for will go later! Glad I brought my coat 😂. We’re right on the water BUT since it’s only 32 degrees right now, we’re just admiring from inside 🥶. How’s your Saturday??
