Phase eight dresses


Welcome to High Street Week Ladies! This week  we are celebrating the best of High Street Bridal. One major upside of the economic woes of the last couple of years is that as budgets have contracted the high street retailers have expanded out their wedding collections. They offer brides (and grooms) great options such as wedding dresses, bridal shoes, suits etc that are not only great value, but are really on trend, and so many are beautifully made, you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a €150 and a €1500 wedding dress. Today we’ve picked a few great wedding gowns to give you a flavour of what High Street Wedding Dresses are like…
