Fearless Brides are holding a blogger competition where you have to create a Spring/Summer bridesmaids outfit for under £200. The prize is a £50 Asos voucher which would come in handy for me right now as my wardrobe really does need some TLC.

I really liked the twist of it being for a wedding but I found it surprisingly hard to do. It made me realise that when my wedding comes around I will be thoroughly indecisive. I suppose at that point I will be thinking about dressing my bridesmaids and therefore it might be a bit easier. For this I just went on how I would dress myself if I could wear anything as bridesmaid.

I really wanted to make sure that I didn't make it too bride-like as no one wants to steal the girl's big day. That's why I thought that the short prom dress would look extremely pretty. Not only is the colour pink very in for this seasons weddings, but it also looks really soft against a wedding dress and would look extremely flattering in photos. It is also the type of dress which you can wear again - definitely a plus if you are going to spend that much.

I decided that the dress would be the most expensive item as it was going to be the staple pop of colour. I know that it is traditional to give the bridesmaids some earrings or a necklace as a keepsake. However I thought that this could be kept separate from my £200 budget. If not, the dress would certainly be a very cute momento. Every time you wore it, you would think of their big day - very sweet. I wanted to budget for the bouquet too as I know that weddings can be super duper expensive so getting the whole outfit and flowers for under £200 is a winner in my eyes!

I searched high and low for these items so I really hope that you like it! If you fancy like giving this a go yourself you better hurry! Closing date is May 2nd at Midday. All rules and whatnot can be found here!

Good luck everyone!
