Diary of a Bride-to-be: On the Hunt for Budget Bridal Wear

I’ve yet to trawl the bridal shops in search of the perfect wedding dress, however one thing I’m sure of is that it has to be reasonably priced. We’ve set a budget for the whole wedding and a Jenny Packham gown (however utterly gorgeous they are) would wipe out about half of it. With this [...]
