30 Dresses That Prove You Can Get a Gorgeous Wedding Gown for Under £250

amazing wedding dresses under £250

Is it possible to get a beautiful wedding dress for less than £250? The answer is very much “Yes!” so long as you think outside the box a little bit. In fact there are plenty of options for budget savvy brides these days.

Firstly, you should check if any bridal boutiques near you are having sample sales. They will often sell end-of-line or their showroom samples for a lot less than the retail price. Places like Etsy and eBay are also great to browse through, and websites such as stillwhite.co.uk and preloved.co.uk (where brides can sell their pre-worn wedding dresses) can hide some real gems!

The high street is a really great place to look too. Most of the beauties below are from places like Coast, BHS, Monsoon and Phase Eight. All of them do amazing and inexpensive bridal ranges. I’m also loving ASOS right now. They are just killing it with their pretty spring/ summer offerings and so much of their occasion wear is totally wedding appropriate!

Are you wearing a high street or budget friendly wedding dress?

    Yes I am! I have gone for a skirt and crop top from coast, so in love with the look of it, paired with french sole love heart flats its the perfect outfit for my wedding day. Also, if it is chilly I am dressing it down with a denim jacket <3

    These are all beautiful dresses, I actually looked at a lot of the BHLDN dresses but was worried how it would work should I need to return it.

    Overall it just goes to show you don't need to spend the word to look beautiful!

    and you should never leave the possibilities of DIY out of sight. even unexperienced sewers can do some ready-mades from second hand dresses and change a simple white dress into a wedding dress with some accessories, bows and silk flowers.

    I bought my wedding dress from Monsoon last year! So glad I did, it’s gorgeous and I got it in the sale at a steal, less than £250. I cannot wait to wear it in few weeks on my special day in Venice.
