Shopping for bridesmaid dresses is so often seen as an uninspiring task; creating unnecessary stress for all involved.

BRIDESMAID DRESS INSPIRATION

Answering the prayers of many is Maids to Measure, a company that offers a bespoke tailoring service to create the perfect fitting and unique dresses that won't break the bank.

Recently launched, the new company promises a fun way to design your bridesmaids dress over a bottle of bubbly and cupcakes. With the help of a consultant you'll be able to make your dream dress a reality: browse through a design book for inspiration and mix and match the different elements you like to create your dress, select your colours, fabrics, and have your measurements taken.

LEADING BRIDAL TRENDS FROM THE ULTIMATE INSIDER

For those who don't have the time to visit the boutique, there is the online option - which allows you to create your dress from your own home! Input measurements with the help of the measurement guide so that it is truly maid to measure.
