Wedding season is back on, and if you’re on a budget, then may I interest you in one of the best high street wedding dresses? Whilst you might be saving on £££, you certainly won’t be scrimping on style.
This season, there is a style to suit every bride, from retro mini dresses to tailored maxi gowns, romantic lace frocks to shimmering numbers and everything in between.
Brands such as Self-Portrait, RIXO and Whistles all offer gorgeous bridal collections for price-conscious brides-to-be unwilling to compromise on style. Whilst Net-A-Porter is known for its designer offering, it also has a great bridal section from contemporary brands, with styles starting at just £240 – and it’s a great destination for alternative wedding dresses.
Traditional high street wedding dresses
For the traditional brides, the likes of Whistles and Monsoon are great for lace fishtail gowns or tailored maxi dresses. Meanwhile, boho brides will love ASOS and RIXO for 60s and 70s-inspired styles.
Alternative high street wedding dresses
For something altogether more contemporary, some of my favourite high street stores are serving up tasteful separates which you can mix and match to create your own outfit. Think suiting, off-the-shoulder tops and minimalist silk slips.
High street wedding dresses for every shape
As well as all of these, I’ve found dresses to suit all shapes and heights – from bias-cut silk dresses to full-skirted traditional styles. Not keen on your arms? There are some great long-sleeved wedding gowns that will solve your bridal dilemmas. Want your waist to stand out? Try a cinched style. Petite figures will suit all the lovely ruffle dresses that are so in at the moment too.
I’ve handpicked the below dresses as I love each brand’s take on the traditional wedding gown. Keep on scrolling to pick your dream outfit from the best high street wedding dresses available now.
