Assuming you have secured a trustworthy event planning company, its time to think about your bridal party. Beautiful bridesmaids in show stopping dresses, can make the difference between a horrible day and a magical wedding. Having the right squad around you is one thing but finding the perfect dress that fits your theme, varied body types and budget can be quite the challenge.
We understand how much you love perfection at the right price, so we went looking for great deals that will leave you and your girls feeling like the priceless princesses you really are. Check out our top 5 recommendations for ballin bridesmaids on a budget! That’s right. This is what we do at La Vie Elegante. Give you the best deals at unbeatable prices, because we know, that every girl is a beautiful Princess and every Prince Charming, a knight in shining armour!
First up, we have “Missbrided,” the bridesmaid section of missguidedus.com. According to them, “friends don’t let friends wear ugly dresses” and we approve this message! Although it does not boast a large selection, the outfits are chic with modern silhouettes and an assortment of colors for all skin tones. The maximum price is $77 and yes, you read that properly. Right now, there are dresses as low as $43, such as this gorgeous, nude, bandeau style maxi dress,; can you say spring wedding?
The one drawback about shopping here is that the dress sizes cap out at a US 12 and there is not a large assortment to choose from. All in all, still an affordable and tasteful choice.
This is another good choice when it comes to trendy styles and huge discounts, we are talking 70% off and 2 day delivery sort of discounts. Not only do they have a great assortment of clothes and regular sales, they also consider all body types, with dress sizes from 2 to 26. The average dress costs between $60 to $120 and they have a huge inventory with colors for every season. The one drawback is that the original prices are usually above $200 and so you need to wait a few weeks for any new items to go on sale. Otherwise, this is a fantastic choice; just look at this knee length, tube top, powder blue dress with a sweetheart neckline for $79.
Cocomelody is special in the same way a mimosa is special – it is always worth trying. The average price is $110. Not only do they have a large assortment, but the sizes run from 0 to 28 and they make custom sizes upon request. Seriously, they cater to you, regardless of your style or body type and they make beautiful dresses. As a rule, I rarely consider black for bridesmaid dresses and this stunning asymmetrical low-high dress with a “just enough plunge” neckline is worth my consideration for $109.
Fun tip about this site- perfect for evening gowns also. If I had to state a drawback, I would say the inventory is so huge, you will be shopping for hours!
This site is a one stop shop for gorgeous party dresses, The assortment and variety sits between misbrided and cocomelody, but the sizes do go up to 5 XL. The dress prices start at $99, but they do have sales that cut prices to $69. I do like the variety in dresses and the use of models with varying skin tones so you can see what a dress may look like on your bridesmaids. I am in love with the lace detail on this vintage style, soft pink, maxi dress with a low back and you can get it for $99.
So Asos is not a secret for dress shopping and is a global fashion destination for cutting edge fashion. They have a very wide range with bridesmaid dress prices so we cannot give you an average BUT we did find this lovely mint green, mid length, off shoulder gown with silver waist details for $25!
The site does say they offer sizes up to 3XL but when you check, most dresses stop at a size 12, which was disappointing. Still, a lovely alternative to traditional wedding dress sites with a solid selection.
So there you have it ladies. Please comment and let us know if there are other sites we should add to this list. What is your fave from our list? We look forward to hearing from you and remember to HAVE AN ELEGANT DAY!
