All good bridesmaids dresses complement the bride’s dress, flatter the bridesmaid, and still stand out alone, the best ones have all these qualities and don’t cost a fortune either!
We’re rounding up some of the trendiest and most flattering dresses of the season for under £50, so that your best girls will look amazing without burning a hole in your wedding budget.
The Simple Slip
We have seen a real resurgence in popular 90s slip styles when it comes to dresses over the past year, and with modern adjustments being made to the classically grunge style, it seems they’re definitely here to stay.
This simple style is far from boring when made from a more premium fabric such as satin, and can bring a real luxe vibe to your wedding. Their fuss-free style doesn’t distract from your wedding dress when stood together, but will bring a classy, expensive complement to your look.
This champagne hued dress will add a celebratory element to your wedding photos, and we adore its luxurious cowl detail. Alternatively this sage green frock will give any rustic wedding a vintage touch and its v neckline is great for bustier girls too.
The Wrap Dress
If you’re set on your ladies wearing the exact same dresses, it can be a real trial finding a style that will suit a variation of body types, but that’s where the classic wrap dress comes in to save the day! Whether you’re more of a pear shape, a curvy gal, or straight up and down, this style suits all. With its mid cinching waistline, floaty skirt and accommodating neckline, whatever the figure, they’re super flattering.
This style needn’t be mumsy either, how about opting for rich jewel tones to give your bridesmaids a more lavish look? This gorgeous emerald dress has the most beautiful drape and is sure to stand out from the rest of the bridal party when your girls get in formation. What’s even better is that it brings that decadent look for as little as 30 quid!
Party In The Back
If you’re going for a really classy, clean cut look, low back dresses will give your bridesmaids a real sophisticated, glamorous silhouette.
Plain shift styles like this blush dress will flatter everything from slim to curvaceous body types due to its simple cut and slight fishtail hemline. If you’re a fan of vintage fashion and old Hollywood fashion, this frock will make your ladies look like modern day Audrey Hepburn’s and will never clash with your dress no matter how extravagant. Though that elegant low back will speak for itself.
There’s a reason why the Bardot neckline never goes out of style, and that’s because they instantly give any garment a feminine, delicate look with a flash of those collarbones.
This off the shoulder style works best when paired with figure hugging silhouettes, and this navy, Bardot fishtail dress is the epitome of class. It’ll show off your bridesmaids amazing curves, and its versatile colour will suit pretty much any hair or skin tone. We love its added ladylike, peekaboo lace detail train too.
The Power Suit
If you’re more of a modern bride and really aren’t too bothered about sticking to tradition, why don’t you opt for power suits? They’re sure to give your wedding photos an edgy, retro look and you can have so much fun styling them too.
You can play with full on bright 80’s glamour with glittery make-up and platform heels, go for a luxe vibe and pair clean cut styles with cowl neck satin tops for an expensive feel, or you can make your bridesmaids your lucky charm with this light blue pastel co-ord.
Whichever trend you choose, your best ladies are sure to look fabulous when stood next to you in these styles.
