  • Save the Children are launching designer bridal boutiques to coincide with the Royal Wedding

    The week of the Royal Wedding has arrived and while wedding mania continues to build, it’s time for us commoners to get in on the action. This week, brides-to-be can dress like a royal for a fraction of the price as Save the Children stores and Mary Portas’ Living and Giving stores stock up on designer wedding attire.

    With donations from a host of designers including Matthew Williamson, Jenny Packham and Stewart Parvin (famed for designing some of the Queen’s wardrobe), Save the Children have transformed six of their shops into discount designer bridal stores to coincide with the Royal affair.


    Starting on Wednesday at 9.30am until stocks last, it’s a chance for all brides-on-a-budget to walk down the aisle in designer wares.

    ‘It may be Kate Middleton’s special day, but this week Save the Children are giving you the chance to have your own royal wedding without the royal price tag. Our shops are filled with fabulous dresses and accessories and we would love you to make that all important purchase while helping the most vulnerable across the world at the same time,’ says Mary Portas.

    Save the Children Week is taking place to raise funds for the ‘No Child Born Without a Chance’ campaign – where donations will go towards mosquito nets and providing medicine for pneunomia and life-threatening diarrhoea.
