It's like Christmas come early! Bridal couturier and celeb favourite Phillipa Lepley is hosting a winter sample sale at her London Chelsea boutique this December.

The designer has been a firm favourite with celebrities this summer, so why not take leaf out of singer Geri Halliwell, model Jacqui Ainsley and vlogger Tanya Burr's books and snap up one of Phillipa's exquisite gowns.

THE PROCESS BEHIND CREATING A CELEB GOWN

But if the couturier's classic designs are slightly out of reach then fear not! This is your chance to snap up a luxury couture gown at up to 70 per cent of their original value. And with a one and a half hour appointment, there's plenty of time to find your dream design.

MORE WAYS TO SAVE ON YOUR BIG DAY

And don't forget Phillipa's top tips for tackling a sample sale:

1. Allow plenty of time. Leave pre-conceived ideas at the door and try on as many dresses as possible!

2. Bring friends, but… it's important not to be too influenced by them.

3. Make it a dress rehearsal. Know how you want your hair or what jewellery you'll wear? Bring it along! It'll only help with the process.
