My best friend is getting married in June. She has 10 bridesmaids in all, 4 older ones (already catered for) and 6 young ones.
We are having difficulty finding dresses - the sheer number of bridesmaids means that the parents will have to pay for the dresses (I am one of them!) so they need to be sub £35 if possible as we need to pay for shoes too. Her colours are burgundy and cream. This is proving to be a nightmare as the ages range so much - 1 of one, 1 of 3, one of 5, one of 7 and two of 14. We have decided that they two 14 year olds will need different dresses from the younger ones but we can't seen to find anywhere cheap enough and we don't want to resort to using ebay as we just don't trust the quality.
Ebay. You can get nice looking, cheap dresses eghttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Donna-Bella-Satin-Maxi -Bridesmaid-Dress-Gown-12-Win-/220720210392?pt=UK_ Wedding_Clothing&hash=item3363f321d8 Sometimes you have to spend quite a while looking but it should be there.
