Say yes to the dress, for less! Hundreds of brand new wedding dresses all under £200 at LOROS Bridal Event

Published on 7th September 2017

Something old, something new... LOROS is giving brides-to-be the chance to pick up their perfect wedding dress at a bargain price, with hundreds of brand new and pre-loved gowns all priced under £200.

On Thursday 12th October, LOROS By Design Shop, in Leicester’s Market Street, will be hosting a free bridal event, which will have hundreds of beautiful wedding dresses up for grabs.

With some of the dresses originally selling for the price of £2,000, this is the perfect opportunity for brides to literally say yes to the dress, for less.

By Design shop manager Abi Jarrom said: “For one night only, we will be transforming our entire By Design Shop into a beautiful wedding showroom, with a huge range of beautiful gowns available for brides-to-be.

“Ranging from strapless gowns to beaded vintage beauties, there really is a style to suit every bride for every type of wedding.

“We don’t want the fact that we’re a charity to put people off because we still all appreciate just how much of a special occasion it is for brides and their loved ones when they find that perfect gown.

“And with some of the dresses originally priced at nearly 10 times the amount we’re selling them for, it would be an opportunity missed if they didn’t pop in, even just for a browse.” The event comes after a handful of local wedding businesses donated a large number of brand new bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses to the shop, which has its own bridal boutique.

“We were overwhelmed when we received a donation of more than 150 brand news wedding dresses to the shop, they are all absolutely gorgeous and a variety of styles,” added Abi.

“Together with the gorgeous stock we already had in, as well as a few other large donations from other businesses, we knew we had enough dresses to showcase at our very own bridal event.”

As well as bridal gowns, there will also be a range of bridesmaid dresses and mother-of-the-bride outfits available to try on, including all the much-needed accessories like shoes and hats.

Abi said: “Whether you’re a bride looking for that memorable experience with your mum or bridesmaids, or maybe you’re the mother-of-the bride looking for that special outfit for the big day, our event is sure to have something for everyone.

“Plus, while brides are buying their dream dresses, Alt textthey will also be part of something amazing by giving to a fantastic cause and helping LOROS to continue caring for terminally ill people, making their gown buying experience one that really is that little bit more special.”

The event falls in this year’s annual Hospice Care Week, a national campaign showcasing the work of Hospices, like LOROS, around the country.
