Want a designer wedding gown without the price tag? Take a look at Something Borrowed Bridal, a new Essex bridal boutique based in Basildon that allows you to hire a wedding dress at a fraction of the retail price.
"We have a gorgeous collection of wedding dresses from timeless classics to contemporary-chic looks," owner Alyson Scrivener tells us. "There are a wide range of silhouettes from a simple sheath to showstopping ballgowns. Our dresses are from some of the world's most prestigious bridal designers including Mori Lee, Maggie Sottero, Justin Alexander and many more."
If you're looking for a budget-friendly option or you don't have time to order a new gown, then hiring may be the right decision for you. "Our dresses range from £250 to £450 for a week's rental and this includes dry cleaning," Alyson explains. "If you need the dress for longer this can be arranged at an additional cost."
