Marks & Spencer launches its first gorgeous bridal collection

These days the average wedding costs around £20,000 – with about £800 of this spent on a dress that you’ll wear for a few hours.

But nip down to Marks & Spencer and you can now pick up a fab frock for your big day from just £89.

Okay, you’d like to be Victoria Beckham and splash out £60,000 on a Vera Wang gown – or Jordan and pay £20,000 for a pink Swarovski crystal-covered Isabell Kristensen frock – but let’s be sensible.

Marks & Spencer’s elegant new wedding collection includes 12 bridal dresses, plus bridal underwear, bridesmaids’ dresses and suits for the groom.

And M&S isn’t the only store to bring budget bridal gowns to the high street – check out Star by Julien MacDonald and J by Jasper Conran at Debenhams, Monsoon, and even George at Asda.

Dress, right, £150, sizes 8-20.
