Looking Luxe For Less…

Finally, the man of your dreams has asked you, possibly the most important question of your life. And now you can look forward to planning the day you have dreamt of all your life. The one thing that every bride gets told is to order her dress sooner rather than later as they can take up to 8 months to make! Most of us dream of having a Vera Wang or Jenny Packham gown but simply don’t want to spend thousands of pounds. So here are a few gowns that won’t break the bank but will still make you feel a million dollars on your big day!

Debenhams Debut Ivory Beaded Bandeau Dress

If you are after a simple gown that will give the ‘wow’-factor, then this ivory ball gown is the perfect candidate. Whilst it still has wedding written all over it, it doesn’t have the typical meringue skirt and will easily allow you to manoeuvre around so you can enjoy the party with your guests! And at £150 you can’t go wrong.

BHS Josephine Strapless gown

This classis A-line strapless gown has a beautifully made bodice with crystal beading which flows into the duchess satin skirt, comes in ivory and is only £295.
