Half of brides would opt for charity shop dress
More than half of British brides would be happy to buy their wedding dress from a charity shop, according to latest research.
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.”
