The busy mother appeared in an earlier episode of Say Yes to the Dress and went to an Oxfam’s bridal boutique to see if she could find a low-cost, luxury dress.
Royal clothing designer David Emmanuel usually helps brides select dresses that cost between £ 2,000 and £ 10,000. However, the average price for a wedding dress in an Oxfam boutique is £ 250.
Sally said, “If I can get a bargain on my wedding dress today, it’ll be fabulous.
“I want to spend less on my dress so I can spend more money on my wedding.”

All dresses in Oxfam Bridal Boutique in Chippenham Wiltshire have been donated but are in good condition.
Sally was looking for something simple and plain for her dress, even though her entourage said she should look for a princess dress.
Her limit was £ 500 on the special dress, but luckily she managed to get one for a fifth of her budget at a bargain price of £ 100.
She opted for a tiered organza dress that used to cost £ 1,500 and David said, “You’re getting a bargain.”

After adding a diamond belt and veil, Sally fell in love with her choice and said, “The dress is beautiful, I feel elegant and glamorous.
“It’s a nice feeling to know that I didn’t have to go over my budget.”
David Emanuel said: “I am amazed and impressed with the quality of the clothing and the variety of styles. That is smart shopping.

“Most of the clothes look brand new, they are beautifully clean and pressed and ready to step on. You can buy designers at an Oxfam bridal boutique for a fraction of the price.
“What does it not like when you say ‘yes’ to the dress for less money?”
There are 12 specialized bridal shops across the country and many wedding dresses are available in the Oxfam online shop at www.oxfam.org.uk/bridal.
