As getting married can cost anywhere up to £24,000 with the average cost for a traditional wedding dress at around £2000, it makes sense to explore alternatives that can make your day beautiful without a heavy price tag.

There were some good ideas at the Wedding Preview Day at Hylands House on Sunday 4 October and for the first time, there were fashion shows highlighting pre-owned or sample wedding dresses. Over 30 exquisite dresses were modelled on the catwalk from experts Bridal Reloved to demonstrate how you can have a lovely traditional wedding dress at a lower price without compromising on design, style or class.
The price of the dresses range from £100.00 to £1650 with on average a beautiful gown costing around £700.00 Designer names include Jenny Packham, Stuart Parvin, Justin Alexander, Pronovias and Sophia Tolli, so you can get the designer dress of your dreams and save money.
