Give your girls the best bridesmaid dresses you can find at an affordable price! Shop our fashion's team's favourite high street frocks...
A wedding can be the most stressful time in someone’s life. From flowers to champagne, unhappy mother-in-laws to invitations, the list of things to do can sometimes seem never-ending. Well here’s one thing to tick off your list: bridesmaid dresses. Relieve yourself of the added pressure, and simply flick through our top styles until your find something that’s right.
If you’re looking for a classic style that will suit all, this pink Ted Baker dress, £199, is just perfect. The classic 1950’s style in and out dress is the ideal bridesmaid dress for a wedding because it will flatter almost every shape. Partner with a rose gold pair of pumps for the big day
But if that’s not for you, we’re confident you’ll find another style you love in our edit. Did we mention that these bridesmaid dresses were all from the high street? Not only will you definitely find something to suit even the fussiest of bridesmaids, you’ll get it at a good price too. Why bother spending thousands on matching dresses that, lets be honest, they probably won’t have an occasion to wear them to again? Why not be style savvy and actually buy them a frock that they will wear time and time again? Forget bride-zilla, you’ll be known as bride-saviour!
Always remember to keep it simple when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. You are, of course, finding something to suit your nearest and dearest. You have to take into account all of the different shapes and sizes that your bridesmaids will undoubtedly be. Unless you have supermodel best friends, each of your bridesmaids will have their own body insecurities. Less is always best when it comes to bridesmaid dresses. Also another tip is to make sure that the dresses compliment the bride’s. If you’re opting for a lace gown, then slip your bridesmaids in a silky frock, or if you’re going full princess skirt, keep them in something straight. Play with proportions and make sure that the bride is always centre of attention.
So whether your doing a city-chic ceremony, a grand country affair or heading off to a beach for some exotic sunshine, we guarantee that there’s something in our round-up that you’ll love… and so will even the fussiest of bridesmaids.
Just because you’re a bridesmaid, doesn’t mean that you can’t stand out. This silver metallic dress from Topshop is a great frock for an abroad wedding. Add some white pumps and matching roses.
If the theme for your wedding is sleek, simple and truly elegant, then look no further than this cream dress from Warehouse. With a higher neck to hide a fuller bust, finish with a pair of high shine pointed courts to give that extra oomph.
If summery and pastel hues aren’t for you, then check out with dark grey dress from Mango. Add some shine by popping on an embellished belt or glittery head band.
With red being the colour of the love, we can’t imagine what would be more fitting than this lace dress from Chi Chi London. The best of part all is that it comes in a curve range too, so there’s something for every bridesmaid.
