Hello avid style guru's, im in need of some help locating deep purple bridesmaid dresses or gold (not nessisarily long but not arse skimming) for my 2 sisters who are my bridesmaids.

Im getting maried in 2 weeks and im getting desperate and there not helping. One is a size 6, petite and big of boob and other is a standared 12 and my mealsy budget is £60 per dress <<poor and paying for it ourselves emoticon>>.

Do i have any takers on the challenge?

Marshall Ward (shown in pink but comes in purple)
Another Marshall Ward (shown in black but comes in purple)
Debenhams -- out of stock online in a 12 but could be worth checking local store
Jasmine Guinness for Marshall Ward
Debenhams again -- out of stock online in a 6 but could be worth checking local store or possibly getting an 8 if your friend is busty

Separates can work if you want them to wear a matching outfit but they are different sizes on the top and bottom.

Mine had matching plum satin outfits one was 14 on the top and 10 on the bottom, the other was 10 on the top and 12 on the bottom.

Could you not have got married last year? Purple was all over the lace then... grinwink

Or even place.

I know i know, i only started planning in January and trying to get my sisters to look for bloody dresses is like trying to get blood out a stone! Also they like 150 miles away so its not like i can pop along the road and bully them into going shopping!

your link doesn't work!

Google Styleshake. Then both your bridesmaids could have dresses that suited their shapes made from the same fabric.

Another vote for styleshake....its like that 'fashion wheel' toy we used to have, except the designs turn into real dresses. They are good.

But you're not going to reliably get two dresses from Styleshake inside two weeks (well, ten days now) for less than £60 a pop (even if OP hadn't now bought something else).

Sorry about link they have sold out now so no longer on web site! Sorry.

Also just realised a big boo boo in my op, its 2 months till i get married not 2 weeks! Sorry.

I will have a look at Style Shake incase these dresses are naff.

Thank you.

Ah, two months? Yes, styleshake would be a good option with that timescale, but dresses start at £68 each in cotton or jersey and £99 each in silk.
