    Hello ladies,

    Some advice please, I am planning on a budget wedding but still wanting to make it wonderful my only struggle at the moment is how can I find a dream dress without breaking the bank and still get the bridal dress shopping experience?

    Do you know what is your budget for the dress? I found the wedding I was in love with for about £210 (replica, of course...)

    Hunt one out in the sales? A lady on here yesterday got her dress for £399 instead of £1250!

    It depends what your budget is really.. Would you be willing to risk buying one from China? You could still go into all the bridal shops and try on all the lovely dresses and make a real experience out of that.. you would be able to see what style suits you and get more of an idea of what it is that you want and you could then search online for styles that are similar, but also cheaper! x

    I have seen on various websites cheap dresses from 100£.. And i have seen the same in the stores.. If u get the name of the dress that u like off a website, just see if they have it in the bridal stores and then enjoy the experience of trying on the dresses... Also if u see one in store take the name and then look online for A cheaper one...

    A local tailor or a Friend with fitting experience could probably ensure it fits right if their is any issues..

    Depends on the budget you have but I think the best things is a sample sale or an outlet? You could also consider trying bridesmaids dresses that you can order in ivory for a massive drop in price.

    Thanks ladies unsure of budget but probably not more than £500 but if I can stretch to a bit more I'll try, I will add pictures of a wedding dress I tried on and nearly bought in 2012 I loved it so much but the designer closed down so I couldn't get it made and they sold the sample before I had a chance to buy it :(

    That is a lovely dress and it really suits you. If you have your heart set on that you could maybe look into getting a dress maker to make it for you? x

    I have no idea.. not something I have ever had experience of! It might be worth asking though.. you won't know unless you don't find out :) obviously it wouldn't be exactly the same so there may be ways a dress maker could drive down costs, i.e. using a different material x

    Keep an eye out at wedding fairs as I went to one and found out Love me do brides now have a sale shop in Kingston, I knew they had the dress I wanted, I went with my mum and maid of honour and they had the dress in my size. It was £1900 but they had it down to £800. I know it is the sample dress but it is everything I wanted.
    Good luck you will find it.

    Thanks IDL that's helped a lot going to look now, not much luck finding dressmaker yet got one quote from a lady in Chelmsford and she said prices start from around £1000, actual cost depending on material used etc, and thanks DaniellaW94 will look for local ones xx

    For the bridal store I gave you details for, there are far more dresses in the shop than is shown online. Really hope you can find what you're looking for x

    Bromley is miles away from us, on the other side of London. Long way to go but if they do really cheap dresses might be worth looking at.
