why are wedding dresses so expensive? i wnat something quite simple, not silk, but lace overlay and slim line perhaps a line definitely not a big dress, more boho relaxed style and i'm seeing dresses online and getting quotes for thousands of pounds!!!! i refuse to pay that for a small intimate relaxed vegan wedding. its so wasteful and quite frankly ridiculous! anybody agree? any ideas?

A lot of people seem to put a lot of energy into a wedding and not into their marriage afterwards sadly. High street chains have nice dresses at reasonable prices, as do oxfam if you want to help a charity along your way. Good luck!

I found mine at Debenhams for a little over £300 and with an online discount voucher I found it was £288. We are having a bo-ho style relaxed wedding and to me this fitted the bill. It was Debut's Honesty. Can't wait to wear it.

Bridal factory or keep a look out for bridal shop sales or even closing down stores . I was lucky the bridal shop I bought my dress from was closing down and got my dress half price :)

They are expensive because of the materials they use and the fact many are handmade with intricate details. You can buy wedding dresses on the high street if you are looking for something cheaper.

In addition to my last comment, if you didn't want to buy high street you could go to an outlet store and buy off the peg. A lot of their stock is discounted as it's from an older line. You could try wed2be or bridal factory outlets depending on where you are based.

I paid £2000 for mine and it's perfect, I didn't even think about the money just went for the dress that felt beautiful
