My partner and I are planning a wedding in February next year very much on a budget. We booked the register office, and he has a suit, but I wanted a dress. Now obviously, being on a budget, designer dresses with fancy trains and a perfect fit were out of the question.
I found the perfect dress here on E-bay. It took me months, but I was patient and I walked away with a brand new Amanda Wakeley strapless dress with gorgeous silk train.
The moral of this story? If at first you don't succeed, try and try again!
