I saved thousands when I found my dream wedding dress in a charity shop for £20

MANY brides fork out a small fortune on their dream wedding dress. 

But a savvy woman has revealed how she spotted her ideal gown for just £20 from a charity shop – and it fit perfectly.

Claire Louise, from Leicestershire, who is getting married next year, said she “fell in love” with the “bargain dress” the moment she laid eyes on it. 

Speaking to Fabulous, she said: “The dress was a charity shop find. 

“I saw it a couple of weeks ago and fell in love but hadn't got my bankcard. 

“When I went back it had been marked down half price. From £40 to £20. 

“It’s absolutely immaculate too.

“I had been looking at the exact same styles online.”

Mum-of-two Claire works at home as a full time video game streamer, while her fiance works as a forklift driver.


The couple plan to have an intimate summer wedding of 40 guests and have a strict budget for the big day. 

She said: “Don't have an insane budget.

“I've not really made too many plans yet but set to get married next August.

“ And have a budget of £3000 but am hoping to do it for a lot less. 

“Aiming for all handmade decorations etc.”

We told you how a bride-to-be has sent her guests a two-page letter detailing the dos and don'ts of her big day.

And a bridezilla has been blasted for asking one of her nieces to be a flower girl while banning the other from attending her"child-free wedding".
