Wedding Therapy – Bridesmaid Dress Bother

A couple  weeks ago I received the loveliest email from Kait who was needing a little help with finding boho style bridesmaid dresses. Here’s what she had to say…

“I love reading your blog which I discovered when I got engaged last year, its so cool that there are others out there who love the same ideas, look, images, pieces and visions as I do, so thank YOU for creating this blog its truly inspirational !

I wonder if your able to help me with a small problem I have, well I say small in a laid back kind of way but its pretty important really ! I’m getting married on 24th June this year and STILL have no bridesmaid dresses…you see I managed to land myself in the hospital after a freak accident involving a glass and a lost finger (which has been saved by the way phew!) but its caused me quite a few months out of wedding stuff and now its safe to say I’m in a bit of a pickle… it also isn’t helping that what I’m after seems not to exist !

So here’s the challenge to you and anyone out there who can help…my colours  are purples, lilacs, cream, silver and grey flowers/foliage in the wildflower/rustic country garden sense and my fiance’s suit is pale grey. The mission is to find a very pale lilac almost dove grey bridesmaid dress ( 3 of ! ) in a boho style to tie it all together…

Can you please help as I’m hopeful you will know exactly where to look ! Oh and i am looking to spend no more than £100 per dress (cheaper if poss!)

I wait with baited breath that you can help! Kait xx”

Of course I was happy to make a few suggestions and it gave me a great excuse to do some virtual shopping! So here’s what I came up with…

If anyone’s got any alternative suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment – it’s always nice to discover new places to shop! And ladies, feel free to email me with your questions and plans…it’s always lovely to hear from other planning Brides!

With Love, Boho Bride xx
