There are certain decades in fashion we would rather forget, gone are the days of large peach meringue dresses and strict rules!
Luckily now in 2020 the bridal fashion options are stunning, on trend and very accessible for every taste and budget. People’s attitudes to big expensive weddings have changed, less of the traditional is now accepted, encouraged and praised. If you want a traditional wedding and gown, that’s amazing. However if you don’t, then that’s great too! It’s no wonder then that when it comes to weddings more and more couples are leaving the old fashioned rules behind and vasts amounts are now opting for what’s best for them as a couple, and not what would simply please everyone else.
More brides are now choosing wedding dresses from the the brilliant high-street, online, choosing fun or unique pieces that they can even customise. At this time when so many couples are having to postpone their weddings and the uncertainty of when large social gatherings will again be safe, a lot couples are having to reconsider their plans. Whether you’re rescheduling for a later date, eloping, or opting for a smaller, intimate ceremony – many of you will be facing financial choices and considering whether or not the plans you once had are still important to you as a couple in the current climate.
Perhaps you don’t want to spend thousands on a wedding dress anymore and we totally get it. Just because you don’t want to spend a lot really doesn’t mean you can’t buy a stunning high-street wedding dress for a fraction of the price and look just as amazing. You can even customise the piece to make it a special one of a kind bridal gown.
One of the most cost effective ways to purchase a wedding dress in 2020 is online. Easy quick and affordable, the range of styles available are endless, all at the convenience of shopping from your own home. Perfect! First things first, try and find out which style you will feel comfortable in. Separates, skirts, jumpsuits, the list is endless!

If you want to rock a multi coloured dress or sequin skirt then do! We know that not all brides want to spend thousands of pounds on a wedding dress from a bridal boutique. Some brides are happy to spend less on the dress and we’re all for that.
