Being asked to be a bridesmaid these days isn't as scary as it used to be. Gone are the days of shiny, puffy, peach satin - the range of dresses available nowadays is not only miles better, it's also much more affordable.
We've already told you about their Wedding Dresses from £65 but the whole range is worth checking out. This new range comes under the "Bridesmaid" category and yeah it is "fancy" enough certainly but I think guests could easily wear some of these too.
The first few dresses on that link above I personally wouldn't wear to a wedding but that may just be me. I love Coast* but I'm not as fond of their prices but over at ASOS you can get that "look" for a fraction of the cost.
The Kimono Sleeve Maxi Dress with Lace Overlay* (the one on the left in the image) is a crazy £40. That's not much more than supermarket clothing prices. That's what I love about ASOS, it's cheap but doesn't look it. The Bow Back Maxi Dress* (on the right of the image) is a steal at £50. Simple but very classy.
They do have more expensive brands - I mentioned Coast was a favourite store of mine, but check out the difference, this Justina Embellished Maxi Dress* is gorgeous but certainly not cheap! Definitely more of a bridesmaid dress than "guest" one though in my opinion. There's a good choice of "Petite*" "Tall*" and "Plus Size*" dresses on the link, it's not all just for the supermodels out there either.
The shoes in the wedding collection are also worth a look here*. Shoes are my BIG weakness and again ASOS come up trumps price wise. Not the cheapest option over there but I love these Steve Madden Heels*
Don't forget to check out the 50% sale* while you're shopping. There are some cracking prices but stock is selling out fast. If you're expecting and looking for an outfit for a special occasion over the summer, check out this blog.
Home delivery costs £3 and is FREE on orders of £20 or more. You can also click and collect your order free of charge at a local collection point. Alternatively if you're a regular ASOS shopper, you might want a look at the "Premier Delivery*"option. It costs £9.95 and that gets you FREE next day (or named) delivery with no minimum spend for a whole year. I think that's really good value.
