There tends to be this misconception that a hefty price tag should be attached to bridesmaid dresses. We totally disagree. There are plenty of dresses that fall under the $200 price tag on the market that we’d wholeheartedly recommend, as listed below. Trust us when we say, you’ll want to rock these numbers time and time again.

Before we kickstart this blog post of 20 beautiful bridesmaid dresses we’re loving, we’re going to jump into some tips on how to choose a bridesmaid dress that will make your girls feel both comfortable and gorgeous.

  • Do your research and shop around

The easiest way to get started is to do some research and this blog is the perfect place to start. Take note of your favourite dresses or jumpsuits by ‘liking’ them in the boutique’s account online, bookmarking them on Instagram, flicking them over to your girlfriends via text or by saving the links in your notes. There’s nothing worse than finding something special, and not remembering where you saw it.

  • Keep costs in mind 

When it comes to price, be considerate of everyone’s lifestyles in the group. The last thing anyone wants is to be majorly out of pocket, so focus on finding a dress that not only makes the group feel great but also doesn’t make them feel guilty about forking out extra cash on something that might only be worn once or twice. If you do want to opt for the more pricey number, take a look at renting a dress instead.

  • Choose something that makes you feel comfortable

There’s nothing worse than ending up in something that makes you feel uncomfortable or doesn’t flatter your figure. Mismatched bridal parties are definitely a popular trend right now, which is perfect for allowing the ladies to dress in something that suits them, rather than putting people into numbers they know won’t suit their body type.

  • Find complementary colours

The same really goes for colours. Some people just don’t suit certain colours, which is where the mismatched bride tribe comes in again. Having your ladies rock different shades of a colour palette is the easiest way around this – and it always looks amazing.

  • Consider the undergarments

Some dresses can be gorgeous, but also tricky. Consider what to wear underneath (braless, booby tape, seamless underwear, the list goes on). Some of the most incredible dresses can look totally wrong with the incorrect underwear, so make sure you all align on this before the big day.
