It was easy to guess that Meghan Markle was going to look breathtaking on her wedding day and, as we expected, she didn't disappoint.
Chosen by the bride herself, Markle was dressed in a haute couture Givenchy gown for the lavish Windsor Castle ceremony.
For most brides-to-be, finding a suitable wedding dress can be a long and stressful process – especially if you are a bride on a budget.
Thanks to a number of high street bridal ranges, your perfect gown needn’t cost a fortune. And while opting for something more wallet-friendly might sound scary to the future wifey who wants it all, it could mean more cash for an exotic honeymoon or for decorating your first home.
From traditional floor-length gowns to marvellously modern midis, there’s an affordable gown for every type of ceremony. Here are our top picks.
