the ver­dict

Look (UK) - - FIRST -

‘I’d never re­ally con­sid­ered buy­ing a high street wed­ding dress, but this has changed ev­ery­thing. Sure, it felt good to wear a dress worth al­most £1,000, but I can’t say it seemed much dif­fer­ent to when I tried on the high-street ver­sions. I felt just as princessy (is that a word?), but equally way less wor­ried about be­ing able to af­ford to eat for the rest of the year. Each high street brand has clearly taken ev­ery de­tail (no mat­ter how tiny) into con­sid­er­a­tion, too – the gems, the hem­lines, the fit, the ma­te­rial, ev­ery­thing. I can safely say sav­ing for a cou­ture num­ber is off the cards. Not that I’ve been do­ing that. And def­i­nitely not since I was 15. Hon­est. Also, just think of the reg­u­lar clothes you can buy, guilt-free, with the money saved. You know it makes sense.’
