As with most aspects of planning your wedding, selecting bridesmaids dresses can be a time-consuming and expensive endeavor–especially if your leading ladies happen to be an opinionated bunch.
This being said, it brings me great joy to tell you there’s a NEW affordable and easy place to find fabulous dresses for your wedding party and it just happens to be my absolute favorite store. Here’s a hint:
The collection features styles for brides starting at $100 and bridesmaids and flower girls dresses at about $25. The name of the line was inspired by the Italian phrase “Ti voglio,” which translates loosely to “I love you” in English.
So, if you’re looking to save some money and you’ve settled on your wedding colors, simply log onto Target’s website and figure out which of these options is best for the kind of wedding you’re designing:
Option 1 – All your bridesmaids wear the same color and cut/style. *You could have your maid of honor wear one shade lighter or darker of the same dress or put her in a different cut/style to set her apart from the group.
Option 2 – All your bridesmaids wear the same color but can choose ANY cut/style.
Option 3 – You assign each bridesmaid a specific shade of your chosen color to create an ombre effect with their dresses. *Again, you could go with all the same cut/style for the group with the maid of honor set apart in a different cut/style.
While you’re at it, be sure to take a look at the options available for the bride on a budget. There are a few simple options available, and if they happen to suit your body type and catch your eye, you’ll have a LOT more money to spend on the rest of your wedding!
Some of the bridesmaids dresses could also work for the bride in white or ivory. Keep in mind, if they aren’t chic enough for the ceremony you’re envisioning, many of these dresses could work for the rehearsal dinner or even as a secondary dress to change into for the reception or after-party.
