Bridesmaid dresses are such an important element to a wedding. They are often what brings the colour scheme and themes together, however they can also use up a large chunk of the budget. When I got married we only had a limited budget and therefore I only had my sister as a bridesmaid, as I knew I wanted to buy her dress and accessories. I just could not afford to have my friends, because I would have ended up with 6 adult bridesmaids. When I was bridesmaid for my best friend she also only had me and I remember that my dress cost almost £250, which is about the standard cost for a bridesmaid dress bought at a bridal boutique. If you had 4 adult bridesmaid that’s £1000 before you have even looked at their hair and makeup.
Now however money savvy brides are looking outside of these boutiques to online stores to see what is available to them and at much more affordable prices. It means that you are able to have a few bridesmaids without having to worry about using up large amounts of your budget.
Joanie on-line have a fabulous range of gorgeous dresses. Long, short, sweetheart cut, straps in varying different colours. Which also means that you are able to have a different style dress for each of your bridesmaid but all within the same colour. I actually quite like seeing bridesmaids in different style dresses because often one dress style doesn’t suit everyone. Plus it shows off different personal styles.

I have put together my top picks of bridesmaid dresses from Joanie, with prices starting at just £40 and sizes from 8 – 22 there is something for everyone.
The lovely Gracie Georgette Occasion dress, is knee length with a ruched waist and floaty sleeves. It is available in 5 different colours. It’s had that romantic feel and is perfect for your bridesmaids, available in sizes 8-22 and costs just £40.
The Isla Georgette is a maxi dress and a very popular option with brides and bridesmaids. It’s floaty style makes it a great style for all shapes and sizes. Available in sizes 8-22 at costs just £48.00 and also has 5 different colours options.
Celine Georgette it a knee length dress that like the others comes in 5 different colours. It the has a statin tie to the waist to helps to show off the waist line. It is available in sizes 8-22 and costs just £40.
I love that Joanie offer different style bridesmaid dresses, yet they are all so similar that you could have your bridesmaid wearing different dresses but they all still match and have the gorgeous romantic feel. Plus they are at a faction of the price of heading into a bridal boutique.
What was your budget for each bridesmaid? Did you choose to head on-line to find the dress or go for the bridal boutique?
