Broke-Ass Tag: Affordable Bridesmaid Dresses

Sure, the Lily Pulitzer collab and it’s stoopid-fast sellout might be all the buzz surrounding Target, but the retailer is one of my favorite go-tos for picking up a cute outfit quickly and on the cheap. For Broke-Ass Brides, Target is also a great resource for pretty dresses for your crew that you can totally buy — or not feel guilty about asking them to buy. Sure, they have their own gorgeous and chiffon-filled bridesmaid line, but the retailer also carries tons of wedding worthy frocks. In classic shapes that are completely rewearable, these dresses are completely adorable and totally BAB-friendly. Here are my five favorite dresses under $40:

    BAB reader Beth was having a little trouble pulling together all the color elements of her kelly green and charcoal grey with daisy yellow accents, so, of course, like good little bloggers do … we came in and totally took the reins on this biatch. And let me tell you — it’s no easy feat finding a charcoal grey dress that either isn’t a sweater dress or isn’t a BAJILLION dollars. But find it I did, and I’m loving all of these colors together. Yellow and grey complement each other really well, and the green is a little bit of an unexpected twist, in the best way. Everything below, except for the wedding gown, comes in at under $100 … but even the gown is under $500!

    I gave my bridesmaids the most blessed gift of all: The Freedom of Choice. Please excuse me while I toot my own horn ... Honestly though, in my very own humble opinion, formal and official bridesmaids dresses are an extremely dated practice. Even if I did like the tradition, there is still no way in Hades that I would ever ask my girls to spend more than…
