10 High Street Could-Be Wedding Dresses For Under £250

Having visited many a bridal shop, it amazes me how the modern bride is expected to fork out an average of £1400 for their dream wedding dress - only to never wear it again.

Now, I know this is an inevitability that many brides-to-be acknowledge and accept. However, before making one of the biggest temporary purchases of your life, consider this: is it really necessary? After all, perhaps your dream wedding dress is patiently waiting for you in your favourite high street store, wearing a price tag of a mere £200.


You may call me crazy, but this season is showcasing a gorgeous array of could-be wedding dresses, short and long, and I see this trend as a great opportunity for you to hit the high street when starting your search for the perfect wedding dress. You may be on a tight budget, or perhaps you’re looking for a subtle deviation from the traditional bridal gown. Either way, you have nothing to lose, and you may even save yourself a small fortune.


To get you started, we’ve compiled a short list of the most beautiful and unique high street could-be wedding dresses that prove you don’t have to spend a fortune to look a million dollars on your wedding day:


1) Monsoon: £249


Inspired by the 1920s, this stunning lace dress is a great high-street option for a bride planning a glamourous wedding with a fun and flirty twist. The shorter hemline shows a little bit of leg, yet oozes class and sophistication with longer sleeves and beaded tassels.
