littlemisspetite :  I’m not sure what look you’re going for, but I wanted my bridesmaids to wear a fancier version of a maxi dress.  I ended up getting them online through Birdy Grey.  Check out their website!  I found that they have 3-4 emerald options for you.  All of the dresses cost around $99 USD.  I’m not sure how much it’ll come out to with international shipping added, but I think it’s worth a look?  Good luck!

littlemisspetite :  Hi Bee!

As you’re an Aussie Bee too, I’ll tell you what I did

We went to Ferrari formal, and my girls fell in love with a multi-way dress (seriously, look them up, they’re the BEST as you can literally wear them any way). It was priced at $300. Unfortunately we couldn’t go with them even if we wanted to, as they didn’t come in any warm winter tones (which is a pre-requisite for our winter wedding)

So, looking online I found a HEAP of sites that did the same dress for $99 in like twice the number of colours. I ordered swatch samples from 2 of the sites (Modelchic and PSFrocks) to check out the fabric and it’s the same fabric as the $300 one! So I took the colour swatches to my girls, had them pick the colour they liked, and hey presto.

Best things about these dresses? If the girls shrink a little, or get a little bigger, the dresses still fit and look beautiful

Highly recommend

littlemisspetite :  Mate, for what it’s worth, my two bridesmaids are the queens of big busts

My Maid/Matron of Honor is a H/I cup

My Bridesmaid is a G cup

The dress looked beautiful on both (as most if not all multi way dresses include a modesty tube top as well, which you would put on under the massive long multi-way straps) and they are still able to wear a bra without fear of any straps showing

I found two of my bridesmaid dresses on ASOS, I also just searched for maxi dresses rather than bridesmaid dresses.

I bought a dress off Amazon a couple years ago for a wedding, which worked very well. It was between $60 and $80 (USD). My bridesmaids wore knee-length dresses from Dress Barn, which were $60.

littlemisspetite :  Hey, bee! I used a seller called Heimo off of Amazon. My bridesmaids’ dresses were $89.00 U.S dollars ($125.00 AUD). They were so beautiful! I just recommend that you take your bridemaids’ measurements and submit them instead of ordering standard sizes, as the standard sizing runs quite small.

Hi bee! I’m in The US and got ours from Lulus for around $76 each including shipping. They have a large selection and so far I’ve loved everything I’ve ordered from them. I know you’re in Australia but if you spend $150 and use the code “WORLDWIDE” you can get free shipping 🙂 The only thing I would say to note is making sure to check the sizing chart and reading reviews. That helped me A TON! And all the dresses ordered fit perfect besides needed hemmed. Hope this helps!

Try bridalglee there are heaps of styles and colours and they do custom measurements which can cut down on alterations if they measure correctly.  Also if u find the dress they have sales pretty often just get a sample first as colours change from the screen and they deliver straight to Australia.
