Is anyone else struggling to find a wedding dress they like in particular?

I've not tried on dresses yet but I'm finding it difficult to find ones I like in my budget.

Just try on loads of styles to find out what you don’t like, that’s what I did. Plus Sale racks have some absolute gems in! Don’t be afraid of sizes too, I’m a 10/12 and got a 14 cos it can be taken in.

High street chains are good value

Debenhams use to have dresses for about 50. Worth looking if they still do

You need to try them on. When on the hanger they look totally different even on the model they do! When trying them keep an open mind and try several different styles to find the one that suits you.

I got my dress from Debenhams online, Dorothy Perkins range. The dress is called Bella, which coincidentally is the name of my god-daughter, I absolutely love it and it was only £150 😍

I bought one dress which was cheap ,I liked it, fitted(only needed shorting). Then saw another private sale one on ebay, it's right size but needs some alteration which someone may do privately . I love it ,and can't wait to wear it . I think the 1st one is more for a younger bride(I'm going to be 61 2019). Anyone interested in a size 10 wedding dress ? Contact me on [email protected] , I will send a photo (from 2/5/18 when can take the photo).

Hi I am from Victoria Kay, we supply bridal wear to hundreds of shops across the uk. We have over 300 styles to choose from. Take a look at our website www.victoriakay.co.uk to see if there is anything that catches your eye.

One bit of advice though go to your boutique with an open mind and try on as many different shapes as you can you maybe fixated on a shape that doesn't flatter your body shape, this way you will find it very hard to find "The One".

Try on everything! I went into a bridal shop and they had no dresses in my size but with the help of the assistant and lots of clips, I tried on dresses from a size 14 to a size 28! The one I liked the most was pink! I would never have tried it on if it were my choice but I was then told it could be ordered in white or ivory. Let the assistant help you. You are paying them lots of money for the privilege so get your money's worth lol x

I bought the second dress I tried on!! ...the woman in the shop was amazing though and knew from what I disliked about the first dress and based on our wedding venue exactly which dress was for me x
