If you’re reading this article, chances are you’re a bride planning her wedding – and you’ve got your eye on satin bridesmaid dresses for your very special bridal party. First of all: congrats! Especially if you’ve found a venue, chosen your wedding dress, finalised the flowers, and settled on a colour scheme for your big day. It’s no mean feat. If you still haven’t found the perfect bridesmaid dresses fret not. Deciding on satin is a great first step.
Coming in every colour of the rainbow from sage green to black, available in a multitude of styles and with options for every budget, the best satin bridesmaid dresses are the perfect choice for brides who want something that feels elegant and glamorous.
Let’s talk about the fabric itself. With different types of satin to choose from – from more traditional heavyweight satin that is used for structured silhouettes compared to lightweight satin that falls effortlessly around the body – it’s a versatile option that works for every season. Satin bridesmaid dresses are also available in an abundance of silhouettes, from 90s slinky slip dresses to flutter sleeve flowing gowns and even shorter styles.
With the same glossy appearance as pure silk, satin bridesmaid dresses look expensive but are often a fraction of the price. For brides after something affordable, there are plenty of purse-friendly options thanks to many high street brands currently offering satin dresses in their main collections. At just £36, we love this pale blue asymmetric midi satin slip dress from River Island that would make a lovely bridesmaid dress when paired with heels. Or, head to H&M for plenty of satin dresses from the brand’s bridal range, all for under £50.
If you can afford to spend a little more, Ghost are renowned for their gorgeous satin dresses that come in various pastel hues including champagne bridesmaid dresses. Plus, the fabric’s current popularity means your girls can re-wear their bridesmaid dresses for future occasions, really maximising that cost per wear. Win-win!
