It’s no secret amongst my friends that I got a vintage dress from Ebay, and was a total bargain. I spent hours and hours and hours searching, watching, comparing, measuring, imagining and hoping that ‘the one’ fit! Luckily the seller put the measurements on the listing, and I knew I had to lose some weight so I embarked on my pre-wedding dress arrival weightloss scheme and waited patiently with my salad for it to arrive from a vintage dress seller in America.
Luckily a month later, it turned up, and after some huffing and puffing I got it on, and I LOVED it. I loved the style, the fit, the length, the colour … basically everything!
Before that, I tried on conventional dresses in Bridal Shops with no luck, I just didn’t feel right in them. The second place winner went to a Phase Eight dress I found in Debenhams, it fit really well and flattered my shape, but didn’t have that wow factor that I wanted.
Anyway… enough about me! For my lovely readers, I have pieced together some of the ranges from the UK high street to show you that there are some beautiful bargains out there to be had!
I understand that not everyone that will be reading this will be thinking like me (I am a bargain hunter to my core), but hopefully it will suprise you a little that you don’t have to spend much to be a princess bride!
