Dress shopping

Hi all, I had my first dress shopping experience today was lots of fun :) went to just try really but found 4 I liked it the Second shop and am thinking I'll go back with my mum. However in the fun and excitement I didn't ask about the price of any of the dresses and the woman never asked me about budget so I have no idea if I can afford them and don't want to try them on again if they are way over budget. should I just email the lady to ask for prices? 


  • I would saves you wasting ur time and theirs if it's not in ur budget 

  • Yes, you should. if the wedding dress is over than your budget, you don't need go back again.

    Thanks all, emailed the owner and the prices are all over budget and by more than i would be willing to go which is what i expected. Not disappointed but worried that my budget is never going to stretch to the type of dress i really want. Saw one on a pre-loved site but would require a trip down to London (i live in Derby) and would mean re-thinking my colour scheme and i have already bought one bridesmaid dress! So i guess i need to decide what i really want!

  • Do you not have a wed2be store near you? All their dresses are really cheap. I've personally not been but have heard from friends how amazing it is so maybe worth a shot?

    What's your budget? Maybe we can help with suggesting designers

    Yes i have a wed2b and i'm planning a trip in 2 weeks. The problem is i love the Eliza Jane Howell dresses and they are at least £1600 - £2000 and i can't go further than £1000. I'm not sure if this style of dress is gonna be something wed2b have much of? and i can't really find anything else similar from other designers either. Can't really know until i have been of course but that's my concern :)
