High street wedding dresses don't have to be cheap looking. See our edit of the stunning gowns that don't cost a fortune...
£24,000; the cost of a gorgeous new car, and now, the average price of a wedding in the UK. With venue hire, catering and decorations, those prices can soon mount up.
But there's one thing you can definitely save on this season - the dress. Even though the average price of wedding dress in the UK is £1,385, there are still ways to get a gorgeous high street wedding dress for your 'budget' wedding without having to go second hand. From vintage styles to thoroughly modern cuts, every high street is suddenly awash with styles to suit every taste, size and budget.
Choosing a wedding dress at any time of life can be incredibly overwhelming - it is the moment a lot of us have dreamt about from a young age, and style is something you shouldn't have to compromise on. Thankfully, the gorgeous options available mean you can find your perfect dress for for a fraction of the average price tag.
We've noticed a distinct lack of strapless gowns in recent years, and an increase in sleeves made of stunning lace and embellishment. Vintage styles are also making a comeback.
Scroll through for stunning high street wedding dresses that will make any bride feel like a princess for the day...
