Evening ladies. Struggling to find bridesmaid dresses for 2 x bridesmaids, one Dublin based, one London based (myself neither Dublin nor London based). One a size 8, no curves, the other 16ish, lots of curves. My ideal color is dark red/raspberry red. On a tight budget so looking at high street. Looked at red dresses in Old reliable Coast but they are all orangey red. Doubting my lovely color scheme of red and cream :( Anyone see lovely red dresses on their travels?

Cranberry is my ideal colour

Debenhams are a good shout and many are on sale now: [url:1mslvoun]http://www.debenhams.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10052_10001_008010127003_-1[/url:1mslvoun] [url:1mslvoun]http://www.debenhams.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10052_10001_008010841303_-1[/url:1mslvoun] [url:1mslvoun]http://www.debenhams.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10052_10001_54510+202310254_-1[/url:1mslvoun]

Some Euro mark up[/quote:w76g13ca] I also got mine in Debenhams, I would suggest bringing your BMs up to Henry Street in Dublin if at all possible and have an hour or two of trying on different colours and styles. I had my heart set on purple but when I saw the peach versions I was in love, they were gorgeous on so that's what I went with! And all the girls liked them too which was a great bonus. I waited til they went on sale and then ordered from the UK site/ parcel motel :cool

The co-ordinations across three cities is half the problem lol! I'm open to new colours. Part of me wants to ditch the colour scheme!

Debenhams have 25% off all this week so have a look online. Also, the dresses I want are €50 cheaper on the UK Debenhams website so def worth the comparison!

I can't believe the mark up! I'd nearly hop in the car and travel north not to pay the euro prices. Madness.

Dramatic ditching of the red colour scheme today. Going with these dresses 60 in UK debenhams. Nice floaty vintage feel about them. No chance of being mistaken going to a Christmas party. Was having nightmares about my poor bridesmaids looking like glam Santa elves.
