Modern, wild brides are spoilt for choice when it comes to kitting out their girl gang with gorgeous bridesmaid looks. Trouble is, dressing your bride tribe can be confusing… and expensive. That’s why in this post we’ve pulled together our pick of the very best places to buy bridesmaid dresses, without breaking the bank

The retailers in this list are perfect for the dresses to suit an adventurous or unconventional wedding day, and are all available to purchase online. So no matter where you are in the world, you can order the perfect dress for your girls! 

Let’s start shopping! 


BHLDN (pronounced Beholden) – sister company to Anthropologie – is a on-stop-shop for all things brides and weddings. 

With styles from designers Needle & Thread, Tadashi Shoji, Whispers & Echoes, Yumi Kim and more, you are sure to find the perfect gown and accessories to dress your bride tribe. Their collection of romantic dresses range from long to short, lace to chiffon, and every color of the rainbow (even ivory and black!)

BHLDN’s bridal party dresses are all priced at $500 or less, and most are well under $200. Their web stylists are available to answer any styling questions you have.

LYLAS – which stands adorably for “loves you like a sister” – is the brainchild of Singapore based-brand Love, Bonito

Their gorgeous, boho-inspired collection can be mixed and matched to create a stunning collection of dresses and co-ords. Outfits come as versatile collections so that your girls can wear different dresses in the same colors, or the same dress in complimentary colors. 

Though the team are based in Asia, they ship internationally from their HQ. Most dresses are priced at under $100, so you can dress your girls to perfection without having to break the bank!

ASOS are literally killing it with their bridal collection. They have curated some of the most fashion forward – and affordable – bridal party outfits to suit all budgets, shapes and sizes. 

Whether you’re looking for layers of tulle, sparkly full-length maxis or simple silk pieces ASOS have you covered. Their collections change seasonally, but their standouts include the TFNC collection which often comes in at under $80.

Keep an eye out for the regular ASOS sales and you can get your dresses at up to 60% off! 

Amazon Prime Wardrobe

We know that finding a dress online can be almost impossible. It’s so hard to gauge what a dress will really look like when it’s on your girls, which is why it’s often so much nicer to actually hit the shops and try them on for real.

Well, if you’re situated away from your bridesmaids and an online shop is the only way to do it – then Amazon Prime has you covered. 

Prim Wardobe is an epic, and little known, feature of Prime that allows you to try on your items at home, for free, for 7 days. Their huge collection of apparel includes an abundance of boho styles for your wild bridesmaids. Prices really are as low as $9.90 for 5* reviewed retailers, and will be with you in under 24 hours from ordering. 

Shop by color, style, price or brand and you’ll have your girls kitted out in no time!

Good luck finding the perfect dresses for your beautiful bridesmaids! We hope this list kick-started your dress-piration. Tag your wedding pics #dirtybootsandmessyhair so that we can see your final looks!
