I’ve given myself a bit of a challenge this week!
I’m forever telling friends etc that the first thing I would dramatically cut the budget on if I was to get married and didn’t have a lot of money to spend would be ‘The Dress’ … cue gasps of Shock & Horror! ‘Surely this is the most important part of your day!’ …. and I guess for most Brides it possibly is … for those that have spent their lives dreaming about the perfect wedding dress.
I do personally think though that you can do Bridal style ‘on the cheap’ as long as you strategically pick good accessories and think about the styling.
So here goes … Budget Bridal Looks for under £500 …
The Wedding Dress is vintage at £275 and from www.lovemissdaisy.com who have a selection of vintage dresses at really reasonable prices on offer. The gorgeous lace shawl is from www.bhldn.com and comes in at £75 with the current exchange rate. The gorgeous hair clip is from www.roseandaster.com at £60 and the shoes are £69 from www.johnlewis.com .
Of course you could easily substitute the shawl for a pretty cardigan or nothing at all and reduce the cost even further!
Check back tomorrow for my Budget Bridal Look 2 – this time with a chic Fifties feel!
