Get a bargain wedding dress from Oxfam

This week Money Saving Expert released a video of bride-to-be Sally hunting for her wedding dress naming Oxfam as the place to go for bargain new and preloved wedding dresses, scroll down to watch the video. 

Money Saving Expert claim that by shopping with Oxfam you can save hundreds of pounds without having to compromise on style. I decided to put this theory to the test and challenged myself to find 7 different styles all from within the Oxfam Online Shop's bridal department (Yes that is the reason, no I am not using this as an excuse to look at pretty dresses all day ... ahem!). The dresses I picked range from £50 to £600, a definite bargain considering that, as Sally points out in the video, a wedding dress can start from £1000!

The average Oxfam wedding dress sells for £250 and Oxfam aims to price at a mere 30% of the high street cost - even though the majority of the dresses they sell being brand new. Oxfam's bridal range started in 1985 when volunteer Barbara Walmsley began hiring out dresses from home. Oxfam weddings has now grown to generate £150,000 each year, enough to provide clean, safe, drink water to 150,000 people. Buying an Oxfam wedding dress is a lovely way to give back on your big day whilst saving you a huge amount of money.
