Bhs and Next do really good ones, some one told me that Asda had some really lovely ones too.

I got my bridesmaid dresses from next and they were gorgeous and cheap, about 40 each for the toddler sizes.

Depends on how far u want to travel but there is a Berketex factory shop in Grantham - Lincs that does cheap dresses. I got my bridesmaid dresses from there and they were only about 70.00 each. had to get cheaper dresses for them cos mine cost a small fortune!!!!

If you're not necessarily looking for a white dress then look at bridesmaid dresses, they are cheaper, still wedding-y and you can get them from most wedding dress shops. I also looked in Monsoon, they have some gorgeous dresses!!!

EDIT: forgot to mention, you can always try the traditional shops, go in, tell them your budget and ask to see what they have

Would you consider wearing a second hand dress? You could get a great condition designer dress for a fraction of the original price.
I know this because I keep trying to sell mine! I paid 800 for it and I'm selling it for less than 200. It was worn for a total of 13 hours and has been dry cleaned and looks like new. If your a size 14-16, send me a PM! (Cheeky I know! )

www.confetti.co.uk has a great online 'for sale' forum where brides advertise their dresses and I think there's also one on www.hitched.co.uk

It depends on if you are wanting new or secondhand.

My wife has a Size 12 dress that is a coture (sp?) dress by Diane's of sheffield.

It is made of double silk and the material alone cost us 900.
Total cost including veil was 1700.
we dont want anywhere near that amount.


I have a pic available if you are interested. Just PM me.

If you aren't fussy that the dress has been pre-owned, why not try Oxfam (particularlty at Broomhill) they often have a nice selection of pre-owned wedding dresses.

You will also have the nice, warm, fluffy feeling, that you've helped put money into a worthy charity's coffers.

Even cheaper there is a temporary clearance monsoon store in the castleford freeport (Now called 'Junction 32' - as in its junction off the M62) they have gorgeous beaded dresses etc ideal for bridesmaids and also saw a few white/cream dresses in there this weekend when i was in.

Hope this helps and all the best for the big day!
