Five bridesmaids standing in a line during the ceremony

One of the best parts of being a bridesmaid this year was I finally got free reign to pick out my own dress (well, within parameters, I suppose. Otherwise I’d just be wearing this or this to every wedding I go to). But as soon as I started my search, what I learned was that traditional bridesmaid dresses often fall into two categories: affordable bridesmaid dresses (aka sub $200) that are boring, and S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G bridesmaid dresses that cost a fortune. It was particularly hard to find dresses that felt special enough in the $200 range ($300 got me closer, but I learned the hard way that $300 dresses come with $100 alteration fees. And sadly, I do not have a money tree growing in my backyard, so I could only get away with that mistake once). So today, we’ve rounded up forty-seven bridesmaid dresses that cost less than $200 but will make you feel like a million bucks.

Pro-tip: If your bridesmaids come in a range of shapes and sizes, traditional bridesmaid dress designers often carry a wide variety of sizes (typically from 0–28.) So your best bet might be the most obvious one.
