Made Of Honor Material

Tuesday, 24 September 2013

So some of you might know that three years ago I was proposed to and I am still not married. I have so much of my future wedding planned but there are some details that are still a little hazy and one of those details are bridesmaids dresses. At first I wanted them in a nude pink, then a grey, then a mint or duck egg but one thing has never changed - I need them to be cheap dresses. I'm not rolling in money and it makes it even more difficult to find passable cheap dresses that look formal, are something they can wear again and that cater for both a size 8 frame and a size 24.

I first spotted these evening dresses on eBay and I just wasn't a fan of the gems beneath the bust but once I found this website it all changed because they have the dresses in the same colours and sizes for an even cheaper price (£29.99) without the detail and now, of course, I'm torn. I'm going to order the grey dress for myself to check it's length and fit and if all is well the only issue I'll have choosing will be the colour.

I imagine my bridesmaids walking down the aisle in this dress clutching their bouquets and looking every inch the stunning women that they are not because of the dress but because they fit the dress so well. The simple style, the colour, the length and the detail all fit in with their personal style aesthetic so well that it wouldn't be out of the ordinary for them to choose this as opposed to some bridesmaids dresses I've seen that don't seem like 'them' as I couldn't imagine them in layers of shiny taffeta or netting. If it's something they can wear again to another event or just to make them feel beautiful, all the better.

What do you think? I love the simplicity and I feel they'd look beautiful with my chosen bouquet of peonies and hydrangeas.

  1. These are so pretty.

    They're really similar to the dress I've bought my sister for her bridesmaid dress for my wedding, but hers is in a dusky pink and there's a cross overy bit at the front but very similar xx
