Wedding dresses can be the cause for so much angst, but if you think you've exhausted every avenue, think again. The high street has some exquisite style finds to offer any blushing bride. Just take a look at our top picks...
High street wedding dresses just keep getting better and better. Stylish brides on a budget now have their pick of an ever-expanding selection of high street wedding dresses – and we’ve got them all here for you to admire.
From floor-length gowns to sleek lace minis and everything in between including some rather gorgeous beaded boho dresses – there’s something for every style.
And for the autumn/winter 2016 wedding season, there has never been a better selection. With Ted Baker, ASOS and Self-Portrait now offering bridal collections, the price-conscious have never had it better. And quite frankly, when you se this amazing array of dresses you’ll wonder why anyone would ever go over a £1000 budget.
For the traditional brides, there’s gorgeous fishtails and caped sleeves gowns from the likes of Phase Eight and Coast. While for the vintage lovers and soon-to-be boho brides, Monsoon and ASOS have all your embellished and floaty lace dreams covered.
And for something altogether more contemporary then Marie Claire’s favourite designer with a high street price tag brand, Self Portrait, has just released their brand new bridal collections just in time for the Sprig Summer wedding season. Cut-out lace, spaghetti straps and on-trend midi dresses all for less than £500 are exactly why this is our top pick for the new season.
As well as all of these, we’ve found dresses to suit all shapes and heights – from Twenties bias-cut to full-skirted prim variations. Not keen on your arms? There are some great long-sleeved wedding gowns that will solve your bridal dilemmas.
From vintage-inspired lace dresses, to much more modern iterations – think off-the-shoulder and midi lengths. Plus, stay tuned for the Whistles wedding dress drop next February (we literally cannot wait for this one).
