Sale Steals… Maids

Hooray it’s sale time!, in fact as they have been going on for a while now and there are actually some fabulous steals to be had. If you’re looking for chic and cool maids dresses then look no further than the high street, saving your pennies and your time.

It might seem a bit daring and not very wedding to let your maids rock the high street in a quirky look, but remember that en masse, any beautiful dress will set a theme for the day and stand out enough to look special.

Here are our top picks for every occasion…

Modern Maids

Fancy a bit of fun in your day? Looking to lose the co-ordinated look and go for all the colours of the rainbow in a jumble of love? Look no further. I’d love to see some maids in the FCUK sequined brights number. Perfect with a bright bouquet, neutral shoes and some bright hair flowers or bands. Or team a yellow cardi with the spotty number for a fun take on formal.

Lyndsay Floral FCUK dress.£68.00
Florence White Linen Dress (Coast), £95.00
Anetta Spot Dress, £85.00


Let your maids rock a maxi for a boho relaxed vibe that needn’t be dull, thanks to these jewel toned brights…

Arlene Boho Purple Maxi (Coast) £75.00
Crinkle Silk Bandeau £80.00 Oasis.
Crinkle Silk Maxi (Cerise) £100 Oasis.

Pretty Perfect

Garden party perfect, these flirty pretty numbers suit a casual summer reception with the sweetest touches.

Paul Smith Bubble Dress £85.00
DKNY Flirty hearts sweetheart dress £135.00
Daisy Print Prom Dress, Oasis, £75.00

Winter Wonders

For the not so ordinary winter reception think city chic, or lay on the sartorial style with a grown up take on the traditional attendant. Particularly loving the Hepburn-esque Armand Basi number.. or some seriously rock-chic metallic maids in the Karen Millen.

Metallic Tulip dress (Karen Millen) £99.00
Black Silk See by Chloe Dress £102.00
Armand Basi Brittany Dress, £166

  1. Rebecca you have literally read my mind!

    Trying to find nice, not too expensive dresses has been driving me completely loopy.

    So, how’s this for a challenge…

    I need dresses for five girls (roughly the same shape and sizes 6 to 10) but all different colourings, no strapless dresses, ivory coloured for £80 or less.

    Please help me before I give in and let them all wear their pyjamas!

    Yours in hope… x x x

  2. I’m trying to work out what style dresses to have for my bridesmaids, I’m having a below the knee dress which is quite full (candy anthony kinda style) its strapless but I’m having a little bolero jacket to go with. I want below the knee for them too, and any shade of purple!
    Help me please!

  3. Good spot rebecca, they would make lovely bm’s dresses. how about asking your bm’s to choose their own ivory dresses? I love this mixed up look and ivory would be a pretty easy colour for them to work with! I had the same ivory dresses for my bm’s but a different one for my pregnant bm and different ones for the little ones and it worked really well. Just a thought!

  4. Loving the maxi dresses. They would be fab for a relaxed summer wedding. I’m rather tempted for myself 😉

    I took my bm shopping and let them pick their dresses, worked out well! They ended up with the same dress (short cocktail dress) and they accesorise as they please

  5. Oooh, I was in New Look on Saturday but didn’t see that! (I think I was distracted by the amazingly good value shoes!!!)

    That would be great (and well within budget – god bless new look)

    thanks rebecca 🙂
