Daring to utter the phrase “high-street wedding dresses” will no longer be met with indignation; with a rise in the market for well-priced bridal gowns, there’s zero shame attached to spending less on your gown. Affordable can now be incredibly chic.
ASOS now has a stellar bridal collection, following the success of its vast and brilliant bridesmaid range. It also stocks Needle & Thread—a British brand that specialises in intricately embellished occasionwear with a comfortable price tag. Then one of our favourite affordable red carpet go-tos—Self-Portrait—also offers a drop-dead gorgeous wedding range.
If you still need more persuading to head to the high street for your wedding dress, just ask yourself this: Would you rather drop a couple grand on a wear-it-once number or that designer handbag you’ve been lusting after for four seasons? Plus, wouldn’t you rather spoil your guests at your wedding than rip up £10,000 worth of tulle?
If you want some inspiration for shopping affordable high-street wedding dresses, just take a look at our pick of the most expensive-looking options that will cost you a fraction of the price of a traditional frock. From the specialised wedding dress collections from ASOS, Whistles and even H&M, we’ve picked out a selection of dresses from some of our favourite stores that can totally be worn for your big day.
