Using a simple online form, brides can easily create listings for all of their wedding items for sale, from their wedding dress through to their table decorations. Brides-
With the average cost of weddings in the UK having dropped by over £4000 in 2011 to £15,500* engaged couples are feeling the pinch of the current difficult economic conditions. Buying second hand is becoming an increasingly popular way of keeping costs down.
Sophie Trinick, Bride2Bride Co-founder “By buying second hand, brides can pay well under half the price for a designer dress that has only been worn for a matter of hours, or in some cases not worn at all. Not only does this help brides-to-be to save money, but enables just-married brides to recoup some of their wedding spend.”
One of the most exciting current listings on the site is a beautiful wedding gown by one of the UK’s premier celebrity Bridal designers Caroline Castigliano. The hand crafted silk dress was originally purchased for £2,750, and is now available for just £500, saving an incredible £2,250.
The site’s Founders Sophie and John Trinick from Cornwall are thrilled with its popularity since its launch in August. As Sophie explains “Our aim from the very beginning was to create a free & easy-to-use resource, and with Bride2Bride we think we've done just that. We love to think that that we are helping Brides to save money all over the country, and that their treasured wedding items are being passed from Bride to Bride!”
