Hi all, I am getting married in a few months and need to get a long sleeved wedding dress quickly as I am too late now for those that need to be ordered. I live in London and, as well as checking the high street, I wonder if anyone knows any outlets where I can get a dress to buy and take home that day?

Does it have to be long to the wrist? Monsoon have a few lovely 1/2 and 3/4 sleeve wedding dresses and Debenhams have a lovely Debut ivory half sleeve lace wedding dress reduced to £156 on their website.

Try Alice Temperley, they always have some lovely long sleeved white dresses here some have other colour options at the bottom.

Budget? Style (beyond sleeves!)?

If you wanted something very different (and you have ace legs) what about this?

place in Bromley called wedding dress factory. dresses from 150 to 490 off there, might be worth ringing to see if they have long sleeved ones, but says they stock over 700 dresses.

I am off there on Friday. smile

Recently been to that Bromley one and wouldn't recommend. There was a lovely wedding shop on the way to it run by a lady and her daughter who did alterations themselves and couldn't have been more helpful. I think it was Perfection Bridal.

what was the Bromley one like?

am so limited on budget and spoilt it all by trying on my dream dress but it's 1400

Most bridal shops sell ex sample sale dresses off the peg. Worth trying a few shops and see what's out there. I have just bought my wedding dress for next year from a bridal shop, its an ex sample sale dress and i was able to buy it and take it away the same day. Cost me £450.

The outlet shop had the same dresses in lots of sizes. The person I was with found nothing and everything she tried looked terrible, there was one girl there who found something that looked stunning, but the dresses definately looked a bit tired. You may be lucky!

thanks I did think it might not be great but will go see, it's not too far from me

I actually found the dress in Bromley today. not loads like I wanted, but one was just right

artylady14 Fri 28-Nov-14 18:36:15

Im 5'2 and a size 12/14 with big boobs. I do know the Bromley store but was looking for other stores too as it takes ages from my home in North London.

I want to keep the budget low to around 500 pounds but dont like the Monsoon ones. I cant see any of your links Artemis cake?

This size 14 dress has a matching jacket and in their sale, though still expensive at £822 but might be worth considering. Adore Bridal is in Chelmsford.

Spickle thank you so much ...its stunning but yes, I cant afford it...never mind will keep looking smile
