Bridesmaids on a Budget
Image 6

As a Habesha bride when you pick your bridesmaids you know that these women are your nearest and dearest and you would do anything for them right?  Well let’s think about all the things they have to do for your wedding.  They attend all your bridal gown appointments, help you plan and select color patterns, throw your bridal shower and bachelorette party, and have to purchase not one, but two dresses (don’t forget about the melse/melsi).  After adding up the costs for everything including accessories, travel expenses, wedding gifts and more, found that it costs about $1,695 to be a bridesmaid (cnn).  Now before you panic there are ways of cutting costs to help your girls out. Would you believe us if we told you that the dresses we used for our Seattle Habeshabrides photo-shoot came from forever 21? Yup, they sure did! These dresses were all under $40 and worked perfectly as a dress for a bridesmaid.  It’s all about the fabric, cut, and accessories you add to give it a more luxurious feel.  There is no need for your girls to feel a burden when participating in your special day.  Here are a few of our favorite looks all for under $100! Happy shopping; your bridesmaids thank you in advance!
