Wedding dresses at Debenhams, Phase Eight and Monsoon

Virtually every major player on the High Street offers a speciality wedding service be it online or in its bigger stores - and if you’re on a tight budget this can be a godsend.

Even if you’ve got your heart set on a made-to-measure dress, don’t overlook the major shops. They’re usually ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest looks and can be a great source of inspiration and ideas.

Top tip: If you’re buying off the peg, always look at the dress from every angle, especially the back. Many wedding gowns can look lovely from the front but awful from the rear view.
