Budget brides on the search for a designer gown should pencil this date into their diaries – 15th March. TK Maxx will be having a one off sale of designer wedding gowns in each of their 60 stores. Each store will only have a small amount of wedding dresses priced from £39.99 to £79.99 with different designers in each store. I expect they will sell out on the day (though any unsold dresses will remain in store) so make sure you get there first!
My top tips for snagging the right gown:
1. Locate your nearest TK Maxx online. If you get chance, make a trip to the store in advance and check out public transport/ parking. If you can manage to get the day off, visit two or three stores.
2. Have a firm idea of what you want but don’t have that idea set in stone. Don’t compromise completely though. A bargain dress that you don’t like all that much but hope you will may just end up being an unworn dissapointment.
3. Don’t buy all the dresses and put them on eBay. Let a genuine bride get a dream dress instead.
4. Try the gown on. Does it suit you? Take someone you trust to tell you the truth and don’t bother asking the shop assistant, they just don’t care.
