Wedding Dress Help

(22 Posts)

Hi all!

I'm getting married in ten weeks and having no luck finding an affordable dress! The main problem is my budget. I'm not fussy but would ideally like something long and semi-fitting. It doesn't have to be a wedding dress but something white/ivory/cream that could be passed off as one. Can anyone give me some suggestions?

I'm 5"7 and a size 10. Straight up and down with small boobs!

Ready. Steady. Go!

Should of said my budget is about £150. £200 max

This Coast one? Coast or more straight?

Ooh I think that's beautiful!

Friend just got married in a BHS dress and it was absolutely gorgeous.

Some of them are reduced too

Lovely and simple but only in a 12 Worth phoning local stores if you like it though.

Beautiful back detail

This one in John lewis is a bit different

Remus - great minds think alike!

I love this Coast dress

there are quite a few second-hand wedding dress shops about, and charity shops sometimes have bridal departments. Try those.

981 dresses in size 10 on here some are unworn, ex display, samples etc.

No idea what your actual budget is but Phase Eight have some on sale starting from £95 for a full length, and up to £499

I was going to suggest ghost, but someone beat me to it!

Monsoon. So many gorgeous dresses. I want to get married again just looking at them.

Dowser Mon 10-Aug-15 09:16:52

Those are gorgeous. I know I did the rounds in February and saw loads I like for £200 or much less . Most of them will be in the sale now.

I bought mine abroad and while it's lovely, there are some lovely little numbers in some of those links.

Do update us on what you chose!

Last week there was a thread where a wedding guest was asking whether she could wear a dress to a wedding. The general consensus was that the dress was gorgeous but far too bridal. Does any one remember the thread, as I can't find it. The dress would be great for the OP.

<not very helpful, but well-intentioned>

Ooh thanks all! I'm leaning towards the Coast one but shall come back and update on the winner!
