Weddings are big business. The average cost of one in the UK last year was a staggering £30,111*. It's no wonder so many people want a piece of such a big pie. With that in mind a raft of High Street retailers have launched ranges recently in the hope their loyal fans will think nothing of walking down the aisle in an off-the-rack frock.
This week H&M launched its range of dresses suitable for brides on a budget. With dresses from £29.99 and separates from £19.99 the chain really has brought bridal to the masses. It's easy to see why brides would step away from paying on average £1378 on a dress when the High Street can kit you out for a fraction of the price. ASOS also launced a range earlier in the year with a total of 35 dresses across all budgets and styles - including tall, petite and curve. Ted Baker and J Crew, although more expensive, both have an excellent selection. Where all of these fall short, however, is with their jewellery. A bride still wants to look like "the Bride" and the right accessories can elevate a dress from High Street to "where-did-you-get-that?" status.
Fortunately, one need look no further as we have the perfect solution! We have built our range by re-working classic styles for the modern woman. Pearls always look stunning against a white (or almost) white gown. As does crystal, or a pop of blue to satisfy the superstitious (sadly we can't help with the silver sixpence in your shoe!!)
