Questions About Bridesmaid's Dresses

Who typically pays for the bridesmaids dresses?

This varies with each bridal party. Occasionally, the bride will contribute to or cover the cost of the bridesmaids party. However in our bridesmaid dress store we typically see arrangements where each guest pays for her own dress when they visit us in Cincinnati.

What is a good budget for each bridesmaid?

While we do carry some dresses above and below, most of our bridesmaids collection falls between $200 and $250.

When should bridesmaids order their dresses?

We recommend that the entire party have their dresses ordered and paid in full at least 6 months prior to the wedding date. This ensures that we can order the dresses together and avoid any variations in dye lots. This should encourage you to book your private wedding dress party at our Cincinnati boutique well in advance of the event date!

Do bridesmaids have to wear the same dress?

Bridesmaids can mix and match as little or as much as their bride wants! Traditionally all bridesmaids would wear the same style and color, however we have seen lots of parties switching it up with styles and colors to match each bridesmaid's taste! It is up to you and your whole wedding dress party to decide when you visit White Wisteria in Cincinnati. We cannot wait to assist you in styling the whole crew!
