Top Tips for Buying High Street Bridesmaid Dresses
- If you’re buying bridesmaid dresses from a high street store, do a recce online first and call the shops ahead to see if they have the styles and sizes you like – if not, order them in to try on.
- When you’re ordering online, think about upgrading to a one-off delivery fee that’ll get you free delivery for a whole year. It’ll make buying several sizes to try on and return a much easier and cheaper experience!
- Brands like ASOS and Oasis often do the same style dress in different lengths and across their petite and tall ranges. If your bridesmaids are lots of different heights or body shapes, this is your best bet for finding a dress they feel comfortable in.
- Don’t assume that just because you’re buying different styles of navy dresses from the same shop, they’ll be the same shade of navy. Lots of brides love the mix-and-match looks, but if consistency is key for you make sure you compare the dresses in real life in good lighting.
Starting from just £22.99, here’s our pick of the best cheap high street bridesmaid dresses.

£50 is actually a very reasonable budget for a bridesmaid dress, you just have to be savvy with where you shop. Online sites are your key players here, like ASOS, Quiz or Boohoo, but high street stores like New Look and H&M are also great places to find a bargain!
