Feb. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- A poll by charity shopping website easyfundraising.org.uk revealed 52% of brides would opt for a charity shop gown, compared with 38% who prefer new. 7% of brides jokingly say they would go for the charity option as long as it wasn’t the dress they had donated.  A cheeky 3% claim they would haggle over the price in the charity shop.

Tanya Arturi of Cheshire Image Consultants says: “The clever bride can still look fantastic by shopping around for the perfect dress for a couple of hundred pounds, rather than thousands.  A new wedding dress costs an average £1000, making the charity option extremely attractive.”

“Vintage wedding dresses are in great demand and of course they can be returned to the charity shop to keep helping a good cause.”

Chartered financial planner Ralph Pettengell, of IFA Consulting LLP, says: “With the average wedding costing £21,000 it’s sensible to try to cut your cloth accordingly. A wedding dress is just for one day; the money would be better invested for the couple’s future.”
