In this age of austerity and environmental consciousness, opting for a second-hand wedding dress for your big day is becoming more and more popular. This doesn't mean that you are limited to wearing some sort of Seventies monstrosity or your mum's old cast-off however; Brides Dress Revisited in the picturesque village of Otford in Kent aims to give bride-to-be the service you get from a traditional wedding dress shop, along with designer gowns at bargain prices. Designers stocked include the likes of Caroline Castigliano, Justin Alexander, Vera Wang and sample dresses from Ritva Westenius, all of which are less than two years old and have, of course, been dry-cleaned. Appointments last an hour and a half, during which you have plenty of time to try on as many dresses and accessories as you wish - and, more importantly, gawp at the ultra-low price tags! And afterwards, you can always sell your dress back to them! For more information, visit: or call 01959 525 834.
