Why not make a day of it and gather your favourite girls together for a day of trying bridesmaid dresses, a lovely lunch and then finish off the day with a cocktail in your favourite bar?  Dress shopping should be a fun experience so do your research before you go and make sure the dresses you have your heart set on are within your budget.

Mix & Match
