Received a wedding invitation recently?

The summer wedding season is rapidly approaching, and it seems guests should be preparing more than their wardrobes as new research reveals their wallets will be taking a big blow.

The average cost of merely attending a wedding as a guest has now been revealed as up to £1395 if you also attend the stag or hen do.

Here are just some things that can really end up costing the wedding guest a lot of money:-

  • Cost of stag/hen do
  • Travel to and from the wedding venue
  • Cost of drinks/additional food at the wedding
  • Overnight accommodation at the venue
  • Cost for child minder
  • Wedding gift

With all of the mounting costs above, spending hundreds of pounds on an outfit for the wedding for some is just impossible.  Therefore, why buy when you can hire?

I have seen an increasing amount of customers coming to Belle who have been invited to “black tie” weddings which do require a full length dress.  Believe me ladies if it says “black tie” on the invitation that means full length.  If it says “cocktail” that means you can get away with a shorter length dress.

Check out some of these beautiful dresses which are available to hire and would look fabulous at a Spring/Summer wedding …
