Even a budget bride can have an evening dress (AKA Going Away Dress). That’s right I said you can have an evening dress! All you have to do is find a dress within your budget.
An evening dress can be a lovely thing to have. Some wedding dresses aren’t exactly easy to dance in. Even if your dress can be bustled, you may not like the look of it bustled, or you may love dancing and even when bustled still feel too restricted in your big wedding dress. What ever your reason for wanting an evening dress, I’d like to see if I can help you realise your dream.
Out of the obvious choices (Debenhams, Littlewoods, Moonsoon, BHS) BHS is the website that I have found to have the best range of short dresses at the best prices. The other sites did have small collections of short dresses but they were £100+.
All the ones I have found on the BHS website are under £100 even when not at sale price. The prices I have shown next to the name of the dress are the full price.

If you have a slightly higher budget for your wedding dress and can look up to the £300 region then I have always loved phase eight!
You don’t have to go for a knee length dress for the evening, but it can be nice to do so, if you have worn a full length bridal gown during the day. In fact you don’t even have to go for a cream/white dress if you don’t want to. Many brides opt for a coloured dress, either the same colour as their wedding theme or blue is a popular choice as the brides something blue.
