Cheap bridesmaid dresses

(16 Posts)

I'm getting married in May, and have three bridesmaids, two of whom are 5 foot 8 or 9 and a 10 or 12 with a B cup, and one who is 5 foot five a size 8 and an E or F cup and who has already rejected the one shoulder purple-grey one as not being structured enough.

I'll be wearing something like the 20's style gown pics here, so quite retro - please help? I am a bit stressed about money and need these as cheap as possible, so say... 25 quid maximum? Has anyone seen anything that could work in a sale or clearance?

30 quid so slightly over budget but there is a slightly retro feel going on and the cut should suit both women. Aslo in dark navy.

beaded and almost in budget but off the mark I fear

this presents all sorts of bra difficulties but it's good (ignoring the shoes they've put with it.

ASOS chiffon and lace

We booked our wedding 6 months before the big day so we had to stick to a tight budget and got our bridesmaid dresses from (sorry, don't know how to do that fancy way to link blush) quality and fit were great although there is a lot of tat on it to sift through to find the good stuff but I'm sure our dresses were less than £30 each.

Quiz clothing do some lovely dresses. I got my bridesmaid dress from there for my mums wedding to my stepdad. Also I got my bridesmaids dress (I only wanted 1) from there when I got married. A full length maxi dress is around £70 I believe. And tbh are nice.

I got this for our 20's themed work do in blue.
Really flattering.

Have a look at The Dainty Yard on Etsy. They are in budget, fabulous for the price and the styles suit all shapes.

This is lovely Asos maxi dress

Bit over budget but still a great price IMO.

lindybop is your best friend. Cheap as chips but ace quality and lovely vintage designs smile

hellsbells99 Mon 19-Dec-16 16:33:46

Try Asos and Boohoo.

Chi Chi do some lovely retro style dresses, they are usually about £70+ but you sometimes get half price offers.

yy there are a lot of cheap 50s dresses about. I thought the OP was after more of an allusion to the 10s/20s/30s

How about this? Champagne sequin dress

Or this Asos Mesh & Chiffon
Or this

Oh - hold on. Ignore that Champagne sequin dress above! That website has some amazingly cheap dresses on it - like under a tenner.

I got excited for a minute there and thought I might do some shopping! But then I googled their reviews and there's a shit ton of complaints online from people saying the quality was so bad it wasn't like what they ordered, the sizing's wrong or the item's massively late and they don't reply to emails etc.

Probably best avoided!
