THE TCW EDIT: BRIDESMAID DRESSES

We know the selection of a Bride’s dress for her wedding day is pretty high (for some it’s the top) on the list of very important wedding decisions, but once that high-pressure decision has been made, the focus shifts to the girls standing along side the Bride on the day. The fashion choice for the Bridal party, and in particular Bridesmaids is arguably as important as the Bride and Groom themselves – they help set the style of the wedding and will be on display in the majority of your photos, so getting the fashion choice right, is imperative!

With so much choice out there, dress shopping can be an absolute minefield, and for those girls who don’t naturally inhibit the shopping gene, it can sometimes become a bit much and in fact the girls who are supposed to be assisting you through this hectic time are indirectly causing you one big headache – we get it! We are here to help – we’ve put together some favourites and some not so common brands to help you get started. From the accessible and affordable to the exclusive and luxe, we’re rounded up nine of our faves.
