Bridesmaid dresses

Hello fellow B2B! I’m looking on cutting costs where I can and I’m struggling with the amount bridesmaid dresses cost. Has anyone ever dyed their own dresses? I’m loving the grey mauve colour or like a dusty pastel purple colour but I can’t find the right colour that’s not way too expensive. This is why I was thinking of dying some white dresses? Or if anyone has another other idea that would be great! Thanks in advance!

Hi! Finding suitable bridesmaids dresses that fit/suit everyone can be a nightmare. What I'm doing with mine is choosing a colour range (were doing light blue through royal and navy) then buying off rack - try prom dresses, evening wear, or ask bridesmaids if they'll chip in a percentage and they can choose something unique to them in a style they can have again. That way even if they don't match perfectly in colour you have a beautiful colour pallette whole xx

I'm not sure if you live local but there is a warehouse shop in Gateshead called wed2b that a lot of people have recommended I go to. Apparently, they offer a wide range of dresses at a reasonable price. I hope you find what you're looking for!

Hi, I’m not buying from a wedding shop for the bridesmaids. I’m looking at quiz, Debenhams, coast and ASOS. They all do a wonderful range of cocktail/maxi dresses in most colours to suit at affordable prices. I hope you find something you all love ☺️
