It always happens. You’ve got the Wedding of the Year to go to and absolutely NOTHING to wear. Kitting yourself out for weddings can cost a small fortune but we’ve found a way to bag a head turning designer dress at a snip of the normal price.

Wish Want Wear are an online designer dress hire company where you can get the likes of Missoni, Temperley, Sass & Bide and Chanel  for bargain prices. Simply order the dress you want, select your size (plus a free alternative) and then they’ll post it to you. Wear, receive loads of compliments and then post it back. What’s not to love.

We’ve got a special offer of 15% off for our lovely blog readers until the end of June. Simply use the voucher code WEDDOLLS15 at the checkout.

P.S Don’t forget to let us know which one you wore!

It’s about this time of year in the fashion calendar that I start to panic. I love my skinny jeans, boots and a snuggly big coat (especially on days like today!). So when I have to think about putting away my 1000 denier tights and removing my woolly scarf I can feel my heart starting to beat a little bit faster.

Joanne moves to her Spring/Summer Wedding wardrobe with great ease so this year I’m taking a leaf out of her book and starting early. Early that is because otherwise anything you want in the shops when the sun actually comes out will be gone in a flash and I need some wedding outfits asap. So if you’re a wedding guest this year and are feeling a slight bit nervous about what’s on the high street have a look at these beauties available from Phase Eight. What’s more there’s also 50% off some of the range.
