We are getting married in October 2016 and I although most things are sorted one of the areas I am really struggling to find are decent bridesmaid dresses for £100 or under per dress. The colours I am looking for are burnt orange and royal blue - naturally royal blue is easy to find but burnt orange is rather more difficult.

 

I have found lots of websites which offer a service where you can buy a dress custom made - looking like they come from China. I used to live in Hong Kong and so have had things made in China before and the quality is very good. I am worried though that if I go with one of these companies I will be parting with a lot of money but not getting anything or getting rubbish quality products.

 

One of the websites I've found is: http://www.jueshegowns.co.uk/

 

Anyone used this place or any other internet custom making service?

Hi @@dahead, I'd been having the same problem, (I'm from the UK) and have been trying to find dresses that will fit all in my bridal party for a decent price. I was planning on getting dresses from China but then came across http://www.forherandforhim.com/ depending on how many dresses you have, a lot come in under £100 and they always seem to have sale! The great part for me is that they make custom dresses/plus size/maternity/jr. Bridesmaid versions and even flower girl versions of the adult dress if you need it. They have plenty of colours to choose from. If you see a dress you like elsewhere, they are happy to quote you. It's the easiest option for me. I also love that they have a "showroom" section where you can add dresses that you love and then invite your bridesmaids who can comment on dresses and add ones they like....great way to narrow down options. Check out the real weddings page and you can see loads and loads of photos from brides who have sent photos of their bridesmaids, I haven't ordered mine yet but the quality does look good.

 

I hope this helps. If you d happen to find any other good websites, please let me know

@dahead  Congrats and welcome! You've come to the right place for ideas and suggestions and the brides here are always happy to help.

 

Have you looked into David's Bridal? They ship internationally. If you go to http://www.davidsbridal.com  and when the home page comes up, just select United Kingdom for the country and it will give you the pricing in pounds sterling. They have a ton of styles and I found a colour that is pretty close to burnt orange but you can take a look for yourself and see what they have. Their sizing is pretty good as far as accuracy so you could take your wedding party's measurements and see what works, and I found styles that were under £100. They have both long and short styles so a pretty good selection.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

If you don't want to take risk the simply go to boutique and show them the picture of the dress you want, it will be less risk taking then others.
