Bridesmaid dresses

I am measuring my bridesmaids aged 10,14,16 and 35 this weekend for their dresses. What is the current fashion in dresses and what type is everyone going for? I chosen my colour as silver with palest pink trim/accent but anyone got any helpful pointers?


  • Hi Cheryl, I have four bridesmaids. 4, 12, 30 & 45 yrs old. The small one is in a ivory dress with butterflies on form BHS. The 30 and 40 yr old are in a burgundy dress with black chiffon over the top from pronuptia, well its a two piece actually with a small ribbon and bow just under the bust, its not full length either and a nice light material for the summer. The 12yr old is again in a different dress (again from pronuptia) but the same burgundy colour as the older girls, she is tiny for her age (age 8 dress) so the adult dress was not an option. Its difficuly when your bridesmaids are of different ages but I think as long as you keep the colours to go with your colour scheme then getting the dresses to match isn't such a big issue, you got to have the girls in the appropriate dress for their age. Where will you be getting their dresses from Cheryl?

    I'm ordering mine from the States as we are so ripped off in this country for them. My eyes popped out like this image when I saw the prices here! I can't beleive I can get an evening gown for about £100 yet bridesmaid dresses are £200+

    My girls dresses came from coast they cost quite lot but are lovely and there really is a chance they will wear them again! with the age difference why not pick a colour or fabric and put them all in different styles of dress? I would agree that traditional dresses from wedding shops can be overpriced so do check the high street or see if you can gt them made
