You have decided whom you’d like to stand up next to you on one of the biggest days of your life. Your bridesmaid’s are friends or your sisters who have stood by you through thick and thin. You trust them and they trust you. Breaking the news to them is the exciting part, next comes the sometimes stressful part of letting them know what you’d like them to wear. With that comes them having to pay. Keep in mind not all your friends may be financial stable and especially during these rough economic times. Be thoughtful when deciding on the dress for them to wear. This is why we like Ok Bridal on Etsy. They offer a wide selection of affordable gowns in many styles.
Ok Bridal accepts custom made gowns at no extra cost, this is a huge plus if your friend has a unique body shape. Besides that they are 100% refundable if there is a problem with the size, color or style! Let’s look at some of the styles they offer.
If you are having a more fun and flirty event, they have your girls wear shorter dresses. Here are a few of the many styles they offer. This gown is only $99.99 and available in many more colors.
We love the formal and fun look of the lace and taffeta shirt. A lovely design that would look ideal with a simple set of pearl earrings and bracelet. Priced at $129.00
How romantic to have all your bridesmaids wearing a different style gown in the same color. We love this idea and think it’s a great way to have each girl feel special on your big day.
Long gowns are more formal and will give your bridal party an elegant feel. We love all these styles and array of colors for your day. Gowns only $129 each. Visit their online gallery to find the look for your girls at Ok Bridal.

Finding the perfect wedding gown is one of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding day (besides being asked by your man if you’ll marry him!). Every girl wants to feel and look amazing on her big day and it all starts with the wedding dress. First you need to decide what length you want. You can figure this out quickly by the location and style of your event. If your event is going to be outside on grass or the beach then you want something that is tea length or just hits the ground. Having a more formal, inside event? Then you can have many options to choose from and can go big with a long sweeping train.
Let’s start by looking at some beach wedding gowns.
Empire One Shoulder with flower detail gown for only $127.00! At that price you won’t mind if you run into the ocean to capture some awesome photos after the ceremony!
Try a short strapless dress for $116.00. The light weight chiffon fabric will be perfect for a warm summer day.
For an inside event and something more formal try one of these affordable gowns.
Show off your toned arms in this lovely scoop neck chiffon wedding gown with lace details for only $199.99
A full ball gown with a sweetheart neckline in satin tulle for $168.00 will have you making an entrance.
