We love a designer bridesmaid dress as much as the next girl, but there’s a lot to be said for the high street! Your local high street shops are bursting with bright, budget-friendly options for bridesmaids, no matter your wedding style or season. Just take a look at our favourite picks currently in store!
Debenhams has a fantastic range of bridesmaids dresses in a huge number of colours, so you’re sure to find gowns for your girls to suit your chosen wedding colour scheme! Debenhams’ own line of Debut dresses has been a classic choice of occasionwear for many years – we particularly love this pretty peach blossom maxi!
Although H&M has no dedicated occasionwear section, they do offer some gorgeous dress options (particularly in summer) as well as affordable jewellery and shoes. We think this faux pearl and diamante statement collar looks luxurious and modern, and your girls are sure to wear it again – not bad for under £20!
We love the BHS Wedding Boutique – it has everything from flowergirl shoes to wedding dresses, all at very affordable prices. One of our favourite bridesmaid dresses from their adult range is the online exclusive Sofia. The classic shape is updated with a feminine lace overlay, and the colour is perfect for all seasons. If you’d prefer it in a pastel shade, Sofia also comes in mint green.
Flower headbands are everywhere on the high street this summer, and this pink and ivory rose garland from New Look is one of our most loved. For under a tenner, this fun hair accessory can add the finishing touch for bridesmaids at a bohemian, festival or country garden themed wedding day.
Having a Great Gatsby theme wedding? Then you have to see the elegant Art Deco beaded dresses from Adrianna Papel! This stunning embellished maxi is perfect for 1920s-inspired weddings, and comes in blush taupe (shown), cornflower blue and sorbet peach.
Lusting after Jenny Packham details but can’t justify the price tag? Take a look at her fantastic line for Debenhams, No. 1 Jenny Packham. The range includes gorgeous dresses, belts, hair accessories, jewellery and shoes, all with Jenny Packham’s unmistakable style and design. We love these beautiful embellished heels!
Bright pink is one of the hottest colours for bridesmaids this year, so we were super excited to find this one-shoulder beauty at Miss Selfridge! This eye-catching maxi dress would look amazing paired with gold or silver accessories, and is practically a steal at just over £50.
Check out this beaded beauty! The high street is a great place to pick up pretty clutch bags for your bridesmaids, and this embellished envelope clutch from Accessorize is one of our top picks. The mix of pastel and metallic shades on a neutral base means it will work well with lots of dress colours and wedding themes.
If you’re having a bright wedding theme, then these brilliant aqua heels from New Look might be the perfect choice for your bridesmaids! These pretty embellished sandals also come in hot pink and a more neutral nude shade which would look fabulous with most bridesmaid dress colours.
Good old M&S have some surprisingly fashion-forward options for weddings, including this fab gold jacquard dress. We love the modern fabric, flattering sweetheart neckline and metallic colour – not to mention the low price!
If you’re a bride on a budget, high street jewellery is the perfect way to give your girls’ outfits some sparkle. This diamante teardrop collar from Dorothy Perkins would suit a glamorous evening wedding theme without breaking the bank!
Don’t forget cover-ups! Even in the summer, there’s no guarantee that your girls won’t be shivering at a British wedding, so make sure they have a pashmina, stole or shrug to wear. This stylish lace cover-up from Coast is a lightweight option for a spring or summer wedding.
Now these are some seriously girly shoes! If you’re a bride who loves bling and everything pink, why not treat your girls to these fabulous heels from Kurt Geiger? Boring bridesmaid shoes these are not – they’re sure to want to wear them at every opportunity!
We haven’t forgotten about the flowergirls! Monsoon’s wedding boutique is one of our favourites on the high street, and they cover all the ladies in the wedding party from flowergirls to the mother of the bride. This adorable Carmen dress comes in sizes to fit girls from age 3 to age 13.
The childhood favourite shop of many of our brides, Claire’s Accessories does a surprisingly chic range of occasion hair accessories that are perfect for flowergirls or younger bridesmaids – even older bridesmaids will love this cute ivory pearl hairband.
