    I have an opportunity to get a bridemaid dress for a real bargain price but am worried it will be more royal than navy blue!! Will I be able to dye it so it's darker or should I just keep looking for a navy one? x

    Personally I wouldn't and wait for one in the right colour, dying dresses is hassle.

    its a tricky one as you need to be sure it will go the right colour for you, but if you dont mind doing it and taking the risk, why not x

    As it is only £5, even if you dye it and it does not work out right, it is not a huge loss.

    I picked it up today ( had migraine so haven't had proper look all over) but its the right colour the photo was just taken in the wrong light. But now I don't know as h2b and mum both say its more of a am I dress that a bridemaid dress but I thought it was ok. Will add photo to my pictures. Please tell me what you ladies think x

    I think that it looks like a bridesmaid dress. Once they have flowers and accessories it will look fab!

    Ask your MOH to try it on and try different accessories with it and then hold a bunch of flowers and see how you feel then. I think it looks great and for a fiver what a bargin! X

    To be honest, at the price, even if it does not fit or colour how want, it's no great issue. If all is good, you've grabbed yourself a little bargain.
