Dresses by Jenny Yoo

How much is too much to make my bridesmaids spend on a dress?

It all depends on what the women can afford. If your bridesmaids pay for their dresses, you could cover the expense of their shoes or allow them to wear shoes they already own. Alternatively, you can supplement those who can’t afford the dress you selected and offer to cover the cost for them. What’s most important is choosing a dress that looks good on all your bridesmaids – even Princess Diana didn’t look good in puffy sleeves!
