So I only have one maid, and we went shopping for her dress yesterday. We were having the hardest time finding something appropriate for a morning wedding & brunch reception, everything we liked was more evening appropriate.
So after hitting every dept. store we could we headed to H&M just to see what they had. This beauty was on sale for $19.98, looks gorgeous on her and will be stunning for the big day! I’m so excited that we got a good deal on a great dress.
My colors are plum, pewter, and ivory. The name of this color is “putty” but it really looks like a light silver. The applique is pewter and her flowers will be in shades of plum/mauve/lavender.
Did anyone else get a screaming deal on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses? I’d love to see pictures. Anyone else with H&M dresses? Am I a freak?

@creativeplannertobee: Thank you! My maid was afraid it’s too close to white but: A) I don’t really care about that whole “anyone in white other than the bride is a jerk” thing. and B) I think it will be nice to have some more neautral colors in the room.
@wilderhouse: Thank you 🙂 I feel almost like I’m doing something wrong just getting a random dress from a discount store… but it’s better than all the dresses we tried at Nordies or Macy’s

@Lexy: That’s a gorgeous dress! Good find! And I know evvveeerrrrryyone says this about bridesmaid dresses, but she really CAN wear that again!!

@pinkandsparkly: Do it!! It’s way cute. FYI my maid got it a size smaller than her normal size so it didn’t look like a TOTAL tent.
@CarolinaCola: I know! She’s going to wear it for the rehearsal at another wedding she’s in a couple months later, sweet!

My girls got their dresses from H&M also for $20. it was originally $50 but we took so long to find something that when we went back, it dropped down more than 50%!!!

Very cute, and what a steal! I went to a wedding a few weeks ago where the bridesmaids wore champagne and it wasn’t weird at all. It looked really nice.

I work at H&M and I promise you are not alone. I can’t tell you how many brides come in maids in tow and buy full size runs of dresses. I just bought my MOH’s dress for her. With my discount it was only $26! I was surprised when I started seeing so many of their dresses and suits on bridal blogs. Glad you found something!
