Wedding Belles ….

Are you attending a wedding this Summer?  Then listen up!  Everyone knows being a wedding guest days costs a small fortune.  There’s the hen party in Marbs, the overnight accommodation in the wedding hotel, money for drinks throughout the day, the “cash donation” seeing as nobody seems to want actual presents anymore …. The list is endless and pricey!

Last thing you want to have to do is splash out on a glitzy outfit which you’ll probably never wear again as the wedding pics will be all over social media! Let Belle Dress Hire take all the stress away from your shoulders.

I have some beautiful full length dresses that would be stunning to wear as a wedding guest.  Although my styles are predominantly formal/evening gowns many are of a floatier fabric with beaded detail rather then sequin/diamante making them perfect choices for a special occasion such as a wedding.  Most dresses also come with a matching wrap which keeps you modest for the ceremony and also more importantly saves a few pennies on having to buy a jacket or shrug.

Dresses start from just £50 to hire with a small selection of shorter length styles right through to full length, elaborate gowns.  Be sure to visit the website to make an appointment.

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 …
