More Bridesmaid Dress Ideas

...

Satin Long Dress by Oli
...

I know, this search for a green or blue bridesmaids dress which doesn't cost the earth is getting tedious. This is the best I can come up with available in this country for under £100...

And news flash - one of the bridesmaids "loves it"!

News flash 2 - Out of Stock and discontinued...!

Back to the drawing board then.

Oooh, I saw a gorgeous teal satin dress from Whistles in a magazine yesterday and thought of you.

This one is very pretty too though!

Oh, that dress is lovely. Shame it's discontinued - isn't that just typical? Hope you have a bit more luck with your bridesmaids dresses soon!

Thanks for thinking of me Peonies - which magazine was it in as I cannot see anything teal satin on their website.

I am touched you thought of me!

Tea & adventures, it is just typical. At least I am narrowing down ideas that I like - I could always try and find patterns which look like that dress.

One day I will find the right dresses, I just hope it's somewhat before the wedding...

I think it was Cosmopolitan, I was reading it at a friend's house (honest. I would never buy such trash myself!)

I've had a look on the Whistles website and it's definitely not there. It was quite short (well, knee length) and fitted but it was lovely.

Hi Rachel! Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leading me to yours...I just had my wedding in August and I'm still obsessed with weddings and brides-to-be...so I'll live vicariously through you!

I had a lengthy journey finding bridesmaids dresses too...eventually I went with Jenny Yoo (www.jennyyoo.com). She's based in NYC but I think you can order internationally...I found the prices to be quite reasonable considering that each gown is custom made. And the best part? There are SO many colors and styles to choose from that you can create exactly what you want...

If you'd like, I can send you pics of how mine turned out...just let me know!

Hey citysage, thanks for coming to my blog! I have been reading your posts backwards so haven't made it as far as your wedding.

Those dresses look great, I shall look into them further.

Do you have any wedding photos on your blog? I will have to have a look, I am obsessed with how people are doing things for their weddings!

Hey Rachel,

I do have some wedding images posted but non of them are the 'official' pics as my photog wants to publish them, so I've not been able to blog about them :(

But let me know if you're interested and I'd be happy to send you a sneak peak via email!

Citysage - would love to see some pics! x

dont forget, you can always have dresses made. ariel at offbeat bride speaks very highly of it and says that its sometimes cheaper.
