Where should you buy your bridesmaid dresses?

Where should you buy your bridesmaid dresses?


by Opus Couture

With bridesmaid style dresses available from a number of  high street stores it can be tempting to purchase from them or online, perhaps it seems cheaper or easier than visiting a specialist bridal retailer ? At Opus we believe the best bridesmaid gowns and experiences are found in bridal stores and here's our top 5 reasons why you should make them your first choice for bridesmaids.

A wide range of sizes available to try and order

We carry a wide range of bridesmaid dresses in sizes 6 to 24 in store, meaning that no one needs to missing out on trying dresses when you visit. Our bridesmaid dresses are available to order in sizes 6 to 36, dependant upon designer so your bridesmaids can all wear dresses from the same collection regardless of whether they are petite, curvy or somewhere in-between. We also offer different lengths options including short, regular and extra length to allow all your bridesmaid the choice of heels or flats no matter what height they are.

The perfect style and silhouette for each of your bridesmaids

Worried about bridesmaids disagreeing on styles, fear not as our designer ranges allow you to evoke each of your bridesmaids individual shape and style yet still create a cohesive bridesmaid look by mixing and matching silhouettes, styles and necklines. We all come in different shapes and sizes and it's hard to find a dress that suits everyone and still looks good ! Buying from a specialist bridesmaid designer stockist enables you to pick different styles from the same designer so your bridesmaids each get a flattering dress which all complement each other giving you a knockout bride squad. 

Co-ordinating Junior Bridesmaid Styles

Have a junior bridesmaid as part of your wedding party and finding flower girl dresses just too young and bridesmaid dresses the wrong style and even the smallest size still too big ? Our bridesmaid designers have a selection of  junior bridesmaid styles as part of their collections which means your junior bridesmaid gets to look and feel part of the wedding party without compromising on style or fit.

Guests won’t turn up in the same dress as your bridesmaid…

There's nothing worse than spending ages choosing an outfit only to turn up at an event to find someone else wearing the exact same outfit. With online and high street retailers often grouping wedding guest styles and bridesmaid styles in the same categories and filters you run the risk of wedding guests inadvertently matching your bridesmaids if you buy from a fashion retailer. Choosing your bridesmaid dresses from a specialist bridal shop means that no one will be wearing the same as your bridal party and avoids any embarrassment and awkwardness for you and your guests.
