56605004_2081911428779779_1300479486927568896_n

“This gorgeous embellished midi dress was one of my faves and proves the devil really is in the details. From the sequin embroidery which is super pretty to the tulle skirt which will hide the effects of countless trips to the dessert table, there was so much to fall in love with.”

“This dress has an open, cross-back, skims just below the knee and looks great with metallic accessories. I’m a huge fan.”

ASOS Design Premium Lace Insert Pleated Midi Dress – £48

“Out of all the dresses I tried on, this one had to be the comfiest – and comfort is key, right? I was pleasantly surprised by the fabric, because (having admittedly not read the product description), I expected this piece to be made from a crepe material or similar. It’s actually cut from polyester and feels luxuriously heavy whilst remaining soft and floaty.”

56862294_342989659666382_5721671692753829888_n

“It’s a fail-safe choice, really, because it would work at weddings in any season and will suit so many different body types. I liked the midi-length, too – much easier to dance in than a full skirt would be!”

ASOS Design Bridesmaid Soft Layer Maxi Dress with One Shoulder Pleated Bodice – £75

56749262_607280123073554_4264668075548213248_n

“I (sadly) wasn’t so keen on this design and felt it was one of those pieces that looked that little bit better online than it did IRL. I am a huge fan of the one-shoulder detailing – a feature which has been a real success story on the high street of late, but it was the ruffles on the skirt which didn’t float my boat.”

57284370_2360189077359182_4248518684982640640_n

“The top layer of skirt reaches high points at the centre of the front and back, and for me, looked a little odd. The colour is nice, though – very neutral and complementary to a whole array of colour schemes.”

ASOS Design Premium Lace Cami Top Tulle Maxi Dress – £65

56641451_1100680696800426_5860498552022630400_n

“If it’s total princess-chic you’re going for, then look no further than this baby pink number. I was a huge fan of the lace bodice which has sheer detailing below the cups. It’s really comfortable, and although the straps were non-adjustable, they’re elasticated which made them perfectly fitting. I can imagine this dress working really well at a fairytale-themed wedding.”

56910161_329174141118456_4410748224046891008_n

“For me, the only problem I could see with this dress was that the skirt (which ends just above the ankle) was pretty big, so if you’ve also got a gown with a similarly full-skirt and you want your bridesmaids to be dressed in something a little more understated, then this might not be for you.”

ASOS Design Square Neck Midi Pencil Dress in Lace – £70

56915086_278018496475135_8461919655768883200_n

“How gorgeous is this pencil dress by ASOS Design?! I felt classy and grown-up from the moment I put it on. Best suited to a winter wedding thanks to the deep mustard hue, this all-over lace number is on-trend and then some. I’m also a huge sucker for a square neckline, so that part had me sold.”

56730557_2133848190068084_7537804798620336128_n

“Another thing I loved about this dress was that the straps were super long, meaning they could be crossed and draped across the back in a multitude of ways. Fan of a halterneck? That can be achieved. Lover of a criss-cross back? Sure thing. Fastening the dress is different ways is a lovely and subtle way of achieving the mismatched bridesmaid look without opting for an array of different colours.”

57308609_2412503685702940_2118813783521492992_n

“I was a huge fan of this design – namely because it was the same fabric and fit as the second dress I tried on, just in a maxi-length and in a lovely shade of midnight blue. I don’t think navy bridesmaid dresses will ever go out of fashion – it’s a classy and sophisticated choice which works especially well at a winter wedding.”

56697042_320944888620645_8259311698930827264_n

“The thigh splits on this dress add a bit of something extra to an otherwise simple design, and the lace trim which runs along the edge of the V-neck is really pretty. If you choose this gown for your bridesmaids, you can rest assured they’ll be comfortable and confident all day long.”

56764646_2148623338556907_7451954183399276544_n

“I’m coming over all fairy-princess in this lovely baby blue tulle number. The colour is really pretty and the belt was a welcome addition, adding a bit of structure to an otherwise overtly feminine finish. I loved the elasticated spaghetti straps, and am pretty certain this gown would look beautiful in your wedding photographs.”

56965424_2195791924067329_8287975468850741248_n

“It probably isn’t entirely my style, but if you’re on the hunt for something really romantic then this could be your dress of choice. You can also pick this dress up in baby pink if you’re opting for a mismatched bridesmaid dress look – I’d just consider sizing down if you have a smaller bust, to avoid any bunching around the bodice.”

ASOS Design Lace Midi Dress with Ribbon Tie and Open Back – £75

56679366_597351297445747_2244729872314269696_n

“Brides planning a rustic-themed wedding should pay attention to this dress, which had me surprisingly into the sandy hue (a shade I never thought I’d like in a bridesmaid dress). I’m a sucker for anything made from lace and I love that the back is open and tied with a ribbon – a very lovely touch.”

56764351_330727507794720_3649889231347646464_n

“My only peeve was that the skirt was probably that little too ‘poofy’ for my liking, but left to hang for a couple of days and it’d probably drop a little. This is a lovely bridesmaid dress choice.”

56726452_1042333179310919_573798628494147584_n

“Simplicity is key with this floor-length nude bridesmaid dress. It is understated, traditional and feminine, and for that I can’t help but love it. I can’t imagine a day where a square shape isn’t my favourite in the neckline stakes, so that’s probably the feature which sold this dress for me.”

56900899_437028973772289_4065526384951296000_n

“I did feel like the nude shade washed me out slightly, so I’d probably prefer to wear the sage green version if I were to play bridesmaid for a day. Other than that, this dress is bridesmaid perfection.”

ASOS Design Lace Long Sleeve Prom Dress with Cut-Out – £85

57204028_511004979304598_4942454755701030912_n

This was the one of two long-sleeved bridesmaid dresses which I tried on, and I’m really glad I did. I think a long-sleeved number would look striking at a winter wedding, particularly if the bride also has a wedding dress with long sleeves.”

57016922_355027878440502_623170527397150720_n

“I’m a huge fan of the deep blue hue and think it’d look lovely and bold paired with a red lip. Perhaps more on the wedding guest dress end of the spectrum, but lovely all the same.”

ASOS Design Bridesmaid Pleated Bodice Maxi Dress with Flutter Sleeve – £75

56649227_2297110463661167_1678997866711875584_n

“The flutter sleeves on this gown are what really caught my eye when I was scrolling through the ASOS bridesmaid dress section. It is super girly so probably not something I’d usually go for, but the sweetheart neckline and pleated bodice had me feeling more like a ‘proper’ bridesmaid than any of the other dresses did.”

57172605_2317958374964676_6300779484941385728_n

“Pair this with a DIY flower crown and you’ve got the ultimate whimsical bridesmaid get-up which is sure to rake in the compliments – oh, and at only £75 per pop? You can’t really go too far wrong.”

56947077_629687490828974_3462988657105829888_n

This dress was just my cup of tea. I loved the colour, the waistband which cinched in my waist and the unique neckline. It made me feel great and looked particularly pretty with metallic heels.”

56691387_328522711181318_3135890781135437824_n

“The best thing about this dress was that, although it is bridesmaid appropriate and then some, it could definitely be worn to other occasions too. I’ll happy brand myself an outfit repeater if it means I get to wear this dress more than once.”

56924852_1143456522507451_303294029049626624_n

“I wasn’t the biggest fan of this dress when I first saw it online, but it pleasantly surprised me once I tried it on. The colour was totally different to the usual go-to navy or pastel, and the embroidery which trickles down the arms and bodice was striking to say the least.”

56603229_872779809739594_8937380983636754432_n

“I’d possibly have preferred it in a midi-length as that might’ve balanced out the high neck and long sleeves slightly better, but I was still a huge fan.”

57121005_410455239752902_5185888056019779584_n

“I think this dress is a bit like marmite – you’ll either love or loathe it as a choice for your bridesmaids. I’m still sitting on the fence – I absolutely love the 1920s vibe (perfect for a Great Gatbsy themed wedding), the colour and the embroidery. Sadly, though, I didn’t find the low placing of the ruffles particularly flattering and wasn’t quite feeling the figure-hugging fit.”

57080041_337514646899085_6651481371594194944_n

“I think this is a dress your girls will either love or hate, and if you’ve got a larger group of bridesmaids, opinion is likely to be split. Maybe play it safe and opt for something a little more universally flattering.”

ASOS Design Cami Pleated Tulle Maxi Dress – £65

56997527_313346279356753_1079703320211226624_n

This dress is a lovely budget bridesmaid dress option which comes in a beautiful blushed pink colour and features a fully pleated skirt. I loved the twisted waist band and twisted straps, and the maxi skirt will float and twirl as your girls make their way around the dance floor.”

57039937_431761194263746_7569184319311183872_n

“I’m not sure whether I’m really digging the sheer bodice for the base layer as it looked slightly too much like a nude bra, but that was my only peeve.”
