So I was having a little look on the Monsoon website and I noticed that their affordable bridal range is getting larger, more diverse…and a whole lot prettier! This is budget beautiful at it's best…and there's something for every bride!

The Summer/Boho Bride:

Imagine this magnificent frilly Spanish senorita skirt paired with a delicate ivory or blush pink vest in silk or a beautiful embellished bodice/leotard. Oh my goodness…that would be divine!

Here the Monsoon stylists have paired it with a beaded top with sleeves which looks very demure {but I must admit I do think my idea's better!}

The Fashion Forward Bride:

I love this relaxed take on bridal gowns…the flowing Eivissa dress reminds me of Matthew Williamson's parachute dress {at a fraction of the price!} and a wedding dress with pockets is always a very cool option!

The Romantic Bride:

From left to right: Windermere Maxi Dress, £300 Valley Mesh Dress £225

The Windermere dress is reminiscent of Claire Pettibone's dreamy dresses. I'm a sucker for a wedding dress with capped sleeves….don't you just love the detailing?

The Classic Bride {with a twist}:

This is the Antoine Maxi Dress which can be yours for a mere £180. Check out that big, beautiful bow and imagine your guests admiring that baby on your aisle walk!

The Vintage Bride:

These are from the vintage inspired Originals Range at Monsoon and they are  absolutely stunning…

From left to right: Donella Silk Cream Maxi Dress £180  , Liliana Lace Cocktail Dress £200

The Donella silk dress has a Jenny Packham vibe and the Liliana lace dress on the right is effortlessly chic.

These dresses are all under £250 proving that Brides who opt for high street dresses shouldn't have to sacrifice high fashion…

If you only spend £250 on your wedding dress, imagine how much you could save for other aspects of your wedding such as the venue, entertainment or a seriously exotic and luxurious honeymoon!
