    Charity shop wedding dresses and other budget friendly alternatives

    Hello everyone! I am considering going to a charity shop (an Oxfam bridal store) to find my wedding dress. 

    However, I am nervous that I wont be able to find a dress that fits me, since I am 5'2 and I am not the thinnest - I am not an average size at all and struggle to shop for clothes as it is. I know that you can get a seamstress to take it in and what not but I am a bit nervous. Does anyone have any experience with buying a dress from a charity shop or a pre-owned dress? Do you have any other tips for buying a dress on a budget?

    Hello there! 

    We're on a budget, and like you I am short, and a size 16-18. Wed2b is great for budget friendly wedding dresses, its where I got mine. My bridesmaids and flower girl dresses have come from eBay, as have my shoes.

     

    I've used charity shops for decorations, guestbook, photo albumn and anything else I can get my hands on!

    Top tip for your cake - M&S!

     

    Hope this helps!

    Ali xx
