Post written by Joanne Ginley, a sometime blogger and volunteer at Oxfam Online. She says "Ask anyone who knows me and they will confirm clothes shopping is my favourite hobby! I love nothing more than scouring the shops or searching online for a real bargain. I'm a firm believer in the power of accessories and am currently developing a real liking for homeware."
With the average cost of a wedding in the UK estimated at £25,000 what better way to get fantastic value for money than buying your dress at Oxfam Online? Not only will you look good but you will feel great knowing your cash is being used to fight poverty. Oxfam Bridal even recently featured on an episode of Say Yes To The Dress!
Here are my top 5 reasons why you should try Oxfam Bridal for your wedding gown:
1. Huge selection
Oxfam has over 1,000 vintage wedding dresses from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and contemporary styles online. The online site makes it really easy to search through our selections from the comfort of your own home. Your dress will be delivered by courier to your door and we offer free returns. What could be simpler?
2. Unique Styles
Want something different that will make you stand out from the crowd? Your friends looked amazing in their traditional gowns but you want something that little bit different. Maybe you are planning a vintage wedding with a 50s feel just like film star Grace Kelly or have your heart set on a classic 90s minimalist affair.
3. Brand new and designer dresses
Oxfam has a selection of dresses that are brand new with tags still attached offering brides-to-be excellent value at a fraction of the RRP. The Batley range currently includes dresses from big name designers including Vera Wang, Biba and Jasper Conran!
4. Manage costs
The average cost of a UK wedding is estimated at £25,000 - that is a sum that is out of reach for many. The dress is often one of the biggest costs and by using Oxfam you can find your dream dress at a fraction of the cost. Prices currently start at £39.99.
5. Help make a difference
By buying from Oxfam you are supporting our work fighting poverty in Britain and around the world. Because of you we can campaign for girls around the world to be educated, respond to disasters and help get women into work. Buying one dress has the power to change lives; it means we can provide support for eight refugees or buy a family of goats. Thank you for your support, we won't live with poverty and we know you won't either.
But don't take our word for it. Here are the thoughts of some of our customers:
"I chose to buy my dress from Oxfam because I liked that I could give something back" Kat
"It's a brand new Johanna Hehir dress….it was the first dress I tried on and it felt really special" Lucy
