Even a wedding dress can be a bargain...

My wedding last year cost just over £1000 for the whole shin-dig. And I’ll tell you now, it was unforgettable!
Ask any of our friends or family and they’ll tell you that I’m not your traditional ‘vision in white’ bride kind of girl. So after going through three other dresses (my mums wouldn’t fit as I was 5 months pregnant on the day!) I had a eureka moment when I popped into ‘Nikita Sablier’ my friends retro-repo clothing shop (sadly no longer in trade) for a chat about my dilemma. This white cherry print dress had just come in and strangely, was identical to a black one I already had and love…call it fate, but a quick try-on and £35 later, I walked out with a wedding dress that will most certainly be worn again and again. Thanks go to Nikki Noo, a true Fairy Godmother!
