As I type this, I currently belong to four Whatsapp groups for three different friends’ weddings, two of which are set to hold in the first quarter of this year. One of the groups is called Bridesmaids Group and is made up of about five ladies, with two of us as the maids of honor.
My friend, the bride-to-be, has already told us the colors for her big day and we have even settled for a design. Unfortunately, we are yet to find someone to make the dresses for us, which is why I decided to go on this mission, to find the makers of bridesmaids’ dresses across Nigeria.
I thought to share some of my findings especially for brides and bridesmaids -to-be.
I sent a mail asking for the cost of bridesmaids’ dresses to which I got a reply saying that bridesmaids’ dresses made of crepe fabric start from 25,000 Naira for a minimum of 10 ladies below U.K. Size 12.
However, for if you want them to use lace from bust to waist, they charge 30,000 and above. The price increases based on embellishments, design, amount of lace or structure.
The call I made across to the number on @peridotofficial was brief and very straight to the point.
Most importantly, I found out that they make bridesmaids’ dresses for 40,000 Naira and above.
The starting price for Frock It Rock It is 33,000 Naira.
Although it took about two days to get a reply, I learnt that the average cost of Toju Foyeh bridesmaids’s dresses is 40,000 Naira.
Sheye Ladejo’s starting price for bridesmaids’ dresses is 15,000 Naira.
Samuel Noon was very responsive and prompt too. I got a reply to my enquiry mail less than 30 minutes after I sent the mail.
The brand makes bridesmaids’ dresses for N25,000 and above.
When I called the number on their Instagram, page, I was greeted by a polite lady who on asking told me that the average cost of bridesmaids’ dresses is 30,000 Naira.
The brand is Lagos-based. They make bridesmaids’ dresses for 12,000 Naira.
As at the time of writing this article, I was yet to get replies from some other brands who I also know make bridesmaids’ dresses while others were either unreachable at the time I tried or insisted on seeing a design before giving the cost.
I hope this article helps someone!
