Girls' Alice Satin Mesh Panel Bridesmaid Dress, Ivory

If your little one has been asked to become a bridesmaid this year, it is difficult to anticipate when and what to buy.

Here are our top tips:

  1. Order early if you are having a dress made.  Dresses can take up to 6 months to be made and sent to your outfitters.
  2. When fitting younger children, your outfitter will need to take into account any growth spurts but if you find a reputable shop, they will allow for this and you may have fittings right up to the week before.
  3. Choosing a comfortable is the most important aspect with children.  If you choose a well fitted dress, it may become too uncomfortable and restricting towards the evening. You can either choose a looser fitting dress or purchase something a little more comfortable for the evening.
  4. Dresses made with a sheer or flimsy material, there is a possibility that underwear could be visible in daylight or in hot weather when fabric can cling to the body.  This goes with older bridesmaids of 12 years and over so bear this in mind when choosing a dress.
  5. Try on different styles of dresses.  You don’t have to restrict yourself to your wedding outfitters if they don’t have many styles in stock.  You can always head to the high street first, then choose your style and request that it is made or you can purchase it there.
  6. If you don’t have the funds for a fitted dress, there are plenty of dresses to choose from big retailers.  We chose a selection from John Lewis and found their range to be excellent and had good stock this time of year.

Here are some beautiful dresses we found online this morning.  Prices range from £45 to £75:
