I need a cheap wedding dress for a photoshoot for my makeup/hair course.

Would this dress work as a dress for a relaxed boho bride? Think garden or beach wedding?

(Will buy some sort of nude/white cami to put under as I realise the top is quite transparent).

Have a more traditional option too but it's more expensive and a bit boring (strapless etc).

That's lovely, and fits the bill. Good luck and post the pics after?flowers

It's lovely. I'd be concerned about the transparency and how the overall look would be with a cami - can you try it on?

It concerns me too Sandunes.

The other dress is strapless, sweetheart neckline with a similar chiffon skirt and some sequins on the bodice. Much more bridal and fitting of the location (gardens of a listed house thingy) do you think?

Will do nil so long as I don't balls it up grin

I'm confident with makeup but terrible with hair which is why messy boho appealed in the first place!

Going off topic slightly... are you buying a dress for a photoshoot? Can you return it? If so, does it matter how much it costs? probably talking rubbish

whattodo we have to provide our own costumes/accessories. It's a complete pain in the arse tbh especially after spending ££££ on the fees and the kit.

I stick to charity shops and eBay. Although the only wedding dress I could find in my local charity shops was a bargainous £295 shock. And it was ugly.

So can you not find something online that you can put on for a photo and then return? Obviously not if it's being worn or altered, but just for a few photos?

Can you not have a bra less BoHo bride?

Any flowers?

Any FB pages about where you could ask for a loan? Might fine a few recently divorced ladies willing to let you destroy borrow it.
