Where are you based? I have a dress you can borrow, its size 10 but it's a lace up back so might fit?? X

Look on ebay, plenty of dresses on there. Wedding dresses are usually made to measure so it's not likely you'll find one to borrow but to buy one cheaply is do-able. Good luck xx

Wed2be are a good place to check out, also Debenhams have a good bridal section, my friend got hers from Debenhams and it was under £100 and absolutely stunning! Looked like it came from a bridal shop. Good luck with everything xx

What kind of dress is she looking for? I have a couple I bought for mine but changed my mind. I could send you photos if you'd like?

Have you tried bridal shops round about some of them do hires and I'm sure if you explain the circumstances they would be fair

More than welcome to have mine, only worn to walk down the aisle before I changed into a second dress.
Alfred Angelo size 16 bridal but more like a 14 high street. Corset back so can be adjusted.
I’m 6ft and wore converse so if she wanted to wear heels then the length is there for her.
The dress is bandage style with optional shoulder strap, tight fitting in white.
Would just ask that delivery is covered.
Please pm for more pictures.

Where abouts are you based? Just thinking it's no good one of us offering, of were opposite end of the country
Is she ok with a borrowed dress? Have you thought about checking the sales in wedding dress shops? They're usually on this time of year? Or perhaps Facebook marketplace?

I don’t have a dress that size, but I do know Ted Baker does wedding dresses that aren’t to expensive and I think they are off the peg. Also try bridal shops for any sample sales?
