Hellooo brides. Where did you get your bridesmaid dresses from!? I need red and can't find any nice ones anywhere! My budget is £100 per dress. Thanks in advance thanks

Hi I got mine from Debenhams (2016) £99 each. They had a good range of colours.

I got mine from house of Fraser in the January sales and they were £79. I also had red!

Lindy bop. Also looked at Vivienne of holloway which have more shiny dresses.

Mine were Lindy Bop as well and all have been work again one of them by me. Debenhams concessions are also great especially after Christmas with the sales I’ve bought coast dresses for £20 and Debenhams debut for £12 in the sales to put away for parties.

Elsie’s Attic, £70 each. They were 50’s style swing dresses rather than full length bridesmaid though.

I got mine from David's Bridal. They have dresses from £30+ depending on the style. Good luck!

It's a shame there isn't a David's Bridal shop near me. I live in the north east of England 😢

John Lewis and House of Fraser too.

I used jjs house online which have tonnes of styles in all colours of the rainbow! Lovely dresses but they are a bit arsey about returns though, you only have 7 days to return and it can't be because it "didn't fit" because they publish the sizing chart 🙄 I had to send one back and said it was due to quality in the end and reordered in a different size

The Dainty Yard on Etsy. They have amazing multiway dresses for great prices. My bridesmaids of different shapes and sizes all suited and liked them. Takes a while to ship though, but worth it!

Try ASOS and littlemistress.

facelikeadinosaur Sun 17-Dec-17 21:11:13

ASOS- Good price and size range!

happylantern Sun 17-Dec-17 21:14:18

Asos! I paid £125 in total for 4 dresses and had so many compliments about them on the day smile

Bought mine on monsoon - week after I saw then was sale so got them for £45 a dress (4 bridesmaids)

*Lady Penelope
What is the sizing like from The Dainty Yard, ETSY? I've ordered 3 different dresses online & have had to send them back due to the sizing being tiny angry I've just had a quick look on the website and the dresses are lovely and a good price too!

Mine were made to measure by a local firm.

They had a selection of made to measure swing dresses, you picked the style you wanted and they made it - cost a bit extra to get Satin material but was still only £90.

Lindy Bop are very similar to what we had.

asos - around £80 each and all the bridesmaids are very happy to wear them again.

I got my bridesmaid dress for my mums 2nd wedding from quiz. I also got my bridesmaid her dress for my wedding from quiz. Maxi dresses, £75. And they are so comfy, also quiz now have an actual bridal section I believe.

From what I remember, they only do three sizes there - a kids, a normal one and plus size. Each dress comes with a boob tube, has a skirt and then the top part which is attached and you tie however you like. The material is really heavy so skims over any lumps and bumps.

I had a size 8 and size 12 which the regular size was perfect for, and a size 20 something who the plus size fit too. It’s really versatile in how you can wear it meaning it suits everyone. My bigger girl managed to tie hers so her shoulders were covered so felt much less conscious.

If you look at Two Birds online, Dainty Yard are basically a cheaper version of them. They have a good website that shows how the multi way dresses work. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

Lady Penelope thanks for the info, definitely considering it now. Will the regular size fit somebody who is a size 14 do you think? The only downside to The Dainty Yard is that the postage is so expensive! shockshockshock it says the postage to send out 2 dresses is like £40 🤔 XXX

They do it on waist size so you would have to measure just to check. I think it would fit size 14 though. Postage is the downside as they come from Singapore.
