Planning on a registry office wedding, no fuss but would like a nice dress.

Nothing ott, not white, not too much lace, long though but most importantly cheap! £100 max really!

Any successful purchases by Mnetters? Where did you buy? Any advice gratefully received grin

Oxfam bridal? They have
all kinds of wedding dress

Oxfam online. Our local hospice charity shop also has a massive wedding dress section. Facebook marketplace.

People spend an absolute fortune on a dress, get it cleaned and eventually give it away or sell it. Most of them are as new.

Ooh thank you both the B’s with your Oxfam suggestions. Off to take a look.

Monsoon have some lovely wedding dresses too.

Ebay? I bought my DD a Monsoon wedding dress for £99 on there, it was in perfect condition and still had the tags etc. She wanted to wear a white sundress hmm so this was a happy compromise.

I found mine on ASOS, it was on sale for £38. I just tweaked it a little, shortened the sleeves and added some lace. It was actually really good quality!

Quiz Bridal collection! Got mine for £40 odd quid in the sale and looked lovely on, not lacy, few sequins over the bust and it had slight capped sleeves I don't know if I'm doing it any favours here but it really didn't look cheap on, was lovely in all my pictures. Will see if I can find a link if they still sell it...

I just looked at all dresses in the sort of shops I would like to get one in. I ended up with a much cheaper dress than I thought ....think £40!!! And just enjoyed my day in a cheaper dress. (Glad I did as I said I would wear it again in the summer and on holiday as it was just a nice dress - but I haven't as it's a bit smarter than I normally wear.)

Monsoon and Asos. French connection also did a beautiful bridal collection that is now reduced in their sale and John Lewis sale.

Have you tried the website lightinthebox?
Mine was less than £100 and my veil was a fiver!

TheQueens Thu 16-Jan-20 21:05:51

Argh noooo they don't seem to have any on their website anymore, sorry!

I got mine from asos, it was a wedding dress but not white. I loved it and paid £55.

I have no suggestions other than to ask in style and beauty, the posters on there are better than stylists! Congratulations wine

SweetMarmalade Thu 16-Jan-20 21:12:26

I’m still reading and checking out your suggestions, thank you.

Would you size up? I’m a 12 but depends on the make I suppose. Can always take it in.

SweetMarmalade Thu 16-Jan-20 21:13:34

Thank you @FairyLightsAreMyCrack (great name) gingrin

SweetMarmalade Thu 16-Jan-20 21:14:34

And thank you! Never thought of posting in style and beauty!

SweetMarmalade Thu 16-Jan-20 21:14:58

Might ask to get this thread moved.

Slazengerbag Thu 16-Jan-20 21:23:11

I saw on Facebook today that the Debenhams stores that are closing have their wedding dresses down to £20 if that’s any help?

SweetMarmalade Thu 16-Jan-20 21:42:45

@GlennBulb thanks for your suggestion. Have seen a lovely dress which is very reasonable. How does the site work? Are the dresses made from your sizes or do they have various sizes available?
