Sumptuous on Saturday with BHS Wedding

The BHS Wedding Department has long been a favourite of ours at The Budget Bride Company. With gorgeous wedding dresses, lovely bridesmaid and pageboy outfits and an amazing array of accessories to choose from, it makes a wonderful one stop shop for your wedding when you’re keeping to a tight budget.

When I was a Bridesmaid for my BFF Kim last year, I wore a BHS bridesmaid dress (similar to this one) in a gorgeous purple shade which fitted with her wedding theme perfectly. It was floor length and the cut felt incredibly luxurious – fitted enough to make a flattering silhouette, but not so pinched in that I couldn’t relax and just enjoy the day.
From experience, I know that you guys – our gorgeous readers – are big fans of the range at BHS, so I thought today would be a nice opportunity to showcase some of my favourites from their wedding collection – happy browsing!


BHS Waistocoat Purple

I know that Cadbury Purple is such a huge colour theme choice for you guys at the moment – and I can understand why! It gives a lovely depth of colour to your day and has such a luxiouious feel. I couldn’t resist adding in this Waistcoat which would be a lovely way to pull the colour theme into your Groomsmen's outfits. An absoloute snip at £25.

BHS Mother of the Bride Hat
Here’s one for your Mums! I love that this pretty hat is £25 – it would make a gorgeous elegant finishing touch to the wedding outfit for maybe yours or your Beau’s Mum!

BHS Veil

This Cathedral Veil is beautiful, flowing, and priced at £40. It is a real statement piece, elegantly trailing down to the floor behind you – love the drama!

BHS Shoe

I love these ivory satin court shoes as they are just the right height to give you the feel of a heel, but not so scarily high that you know you are going to be tottering around with painful feet all day - nothing worse, right?! There are added cushioned insoles with memory foam padding, which I think sounds like the most blissful idea ever! Great value at £30.


BHS Bridesmaid Dress
This ivory organza bridesmaid dress is just too cute. The bow and diamante details will make your little bridesmaids or flower girl feel like a princess guaranteed. Currently on sale for £25 reduced from £50, snap it up whilst it’s still available! 


BHS Wedding Dress
 This elegant ‘Hope’ wedding dress features a lovely fully boned bodice and lace back detail. The sweetheart neckline is glamorous and highly flattering whilst retaining a poised look due to the floor length silhouette. And the best bit? This ivory gown is priced at £395 - hooray! 


You can have a good old browse to check out all of the other gorgeous wedding options available from BHS on our Budget Bride Boutique – just pop ‘BHS Wedding’ into the Search Box within our Wedding Dress, Bridesmaid and Wedding Accessory Categories.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you next week!

Wedding Wish List Wednesday

It’s the middle of the week already, is your January flying past as quickly as mine seems to be?! As it’s Wednesday, it’s time for a wedding wish list 🙂 What are you wishing for this week?

♥ Monsoon have a really lovely selection of Vintage inspired wedding Dresses for this season, all designed in London. My current favourite is this Carlotta wedding dress for £299.

♥ I am absolutely in love with the new range of wedding guest outfits from Coast. I will be running a special Coast Wedding Guest Outfit feature on next week’s wish list to showcase their amazing new SS14 range – it’s stunning! But for now, how about this little beauty?! It’s a splash at £160 but if you wear it to two weddings this year and two other special occasions, that will work out at £40 per wear – bargain!

Coast Red Guest dress


♥ Coast also have a great sale on at the moment. I spyed this gorgeous little gold clutch bag (white, pink and gold theme anyone?) which is now £22 reduced from £45!

Coast Gold Clutch Bag

♥ I saw this advert in the current issue of Perfect Wedding Magazine - the detail on the back of this dress has me a little bit obsessed! The 2014 collection from Pure Bridal has wedding dresses ranging from £399 to £749 – well worth a look 🙂
