However sometimes for some really on line trend setting wedding looks without breaking the bank you really can't beat some of the American websites. My favourite in the past has always been www.bhldn.com .. its fantastic for inspiration and some of the dresses (even with shipping) are really reasonable. They also do blow the budget dresses by the way and plenty of lovely reception decor.
However I'm now just a bit in love with another American company J Crew. www.jcrew.com/wedding who have recently branched out into the wedding market and have quite a few dresses that are well under £1000 even once you've added on shipping and taxes. ( Obviously you must also bear in mind that you may need to pay for any alterations with a seamstress here if you lose weight etc before the wedding!).
They also have some beautiful bridesmaids dresses and Mother of the Bride collection.
Here's just some of my favourites from the site.
|'Percy' - £662 (with shipping & taxes)|
|'Rosebloom' - £807 (with shipping & taxes)|
|'Corrina' - £506 (with shipping & taxes)|
