We Try On The Best Bridesmaid Dresses From Asos’ New Wedding Collection So You Don’t Have To

We Try On The Best Bridesmaid Dresses From Asos’ New Wedding Collection So You Don’t Have To

The Debrief: Going to the chapel and we’re, gonna be bri-i-i-desmaids.

Shopping for a wedding dress might be quite the task, but at least you only have to please one person, right? But no so with bridesmaids dresses, which tend to need to cater for four-or-so girls of such completely different body types that it’s laughable. Cue hours of trying to get the 5’9” size 16 best mate and the 5’1” size 6 sister-in-law-to-be to agree on the same dress. As fun as that sounds, we got Asos girl Gamze to try on some of the best bridesmaid dresses from their new bridal range – so you can bicker over who likes which one later…

The Cupcake One

Weddings are long days so this would be the ultimate bridesmaid dress for comfort-lovers. I love the way this pastel dress sits so effortlessly, and the length gives you that bit of elegance. I picked my jewels carefully so as not to overdo it and I've gone for a super cute bag decorated with pearls to stash my essentials.

Strappy Pinny Scuba Prom Midi Dress, £65; Chi Chi London Box Clutch Bag, £32; ASOS Hailstone Heeled Sandals, £45

The Pleated One

Cut a fresh silhouette with this gorgeous pleated dress! I like the way it sits around my waist and accentuates the smallest part of my body. Continuing with the edgy take on bridesmaid dressing, I've gone for a bold block heel sandal and Gucci-esque choker.

Drape Back Pleated Midi Dress, £75; Corsage Neck Tie, £7;  White Leather Block Heeled Ankle Strap Sandals, £149

The One With Cap Sleeves

The fullness of a flutter sleeve is my absolute favourite for any occasion, but the classic feel of this dress makes it unbeatable for a wedding. I love the detailing on this dress and have kept accessories to a minimum with a simple jewelled head band. I can imagine this looking beautiful on bridesmaids at a garden wedding.

Lace and Pleat Midi Dress, £65; Wide Fit Barely There Heeled Sandals, £17.99; Chiffon Flower Headband, £6

The Emoji One

How gorgeous is this colour? Forget frumpy bridesmaid dresses, the V-neck style and the ruffles on this beauty will make any lady seem taller. I felt like a señorita - love the drama of a floor length dress!

Dress – coming soon!

The One With Straps

All about that vintage feeling, this mint maxi is sexy without being too revealing. A perfect colour for those spring weddings!

Dress – coming soon!; Fabric Flower Choker Necklace, £6

The Floral One

When it comes to styling a floral dress, I would say just keep it simple and let the dress - and the print - do all the talking. Keep hair and make up to a minimum!
