Why Buy Off-the-Peg Wedding Dresses at Brides & Bustles?

Don’t think that buying off-the-peg wedding dresses means you can’t get a wonderful gown!

Buying off-the-peg wedding dresses are a great way to save money on your wedding. Ready-made bridal gowns are ideal if you’re having a beach wedding, or even if you’re still looking for that fairytale style, but you've got a tight budget. And don’t think that you need to forego quality, or that off-the-peg wedding dresses won't deliver the perfect look for your big day.

We have a fantastic range of off-the-peg, sale wedding dresses at Brides & Bustles. And these gowns are often from past recent seasons, but are still brand new, and offer the same experience as ordering a wedding dress from scratch.

Here are some reasons why you should choose from our Off-the-Peg Wedding Dresses Selection at Brides & Bustles

Getting Married Abroad

Buying off-the-peg wedding dresses, means saving money, and planning a wedding abroad can be expensive. Flights, hotels, insurance, sun cream… it all adds up! Plus, in theory you can take the dress away that day, so it's one more thing you can tick off your list!


As we mentioned, the wedding dresses from our off-the-peg section will certainly save you money, our 'Love Me, Buy Me' range are all priced under £700. So, you can take away your dream wedding dress at a fraction of the cost!

An Evening Wedding Dress

Why have one wedding dress, when you can have two! A growing trend is to have two gowns for your big day, so you can change up your look throughout the big day. Maybe you want a big wedding dress for the walk down the aisle, and then something slinky for the evening's festivities! Choosing off-the-peg for your 1st or 2nd gown is the perfect choice, as it will have less impact on your budget.

A Tight Wedding Schedule

Ordering a wedding dress can take 4-5 months if you factor in fittings, which is fine if you have planned, and have plenty of time. But if you don't have that luxury, then off-the-peg wedding dresses are perfect, as they can be taken away the same day. You'll be ready to tie the knot in no time!

Usually Cheaper Than Renting

Some brides opt for a rented dress for their wedding, but on the whole this is often the more expensive option. As the rental dress will still need to be altered to fit you, and these charges can sometimes be more than buying it outright, off-the-peg. Plus, if you're not too sentimental, you have the opportunity to sell your dress on afterwards if you buy it outright.
