WEDDINGS can often end up rather pricey – after all, there’s everything from the food to the DJ to fork out for.

But former Miss Great Britain April Banbury, who is also a bridal stylist, has revealed a super simple way to cut back on costs – and it’s all thanks to the dress.

Instead of forking out thousands on a designer gown, she instead recommended snapping up a stunning frock from Shein.

In a clip shared to TikTok (@aprilbanbury), she can be seen trying on three in total in a bid to prove that you haven’t got to spend a small fortune to look expensive.

And perhaps the best part of all? They cost under £100.

First up, she steps into the ‘Square Collar Long Sleeve Mesh Overlay Hem Wedding Prom Party Dress’ which retails at £77.49.

It features a bold square neckline, puff sleeves and statement ruffle detail skirt – and is sure to make you star of the show.

April captioned the post: “Say ‘I do’ to strutting down the aisle in wedding dresses under £100!!

“I’ve been a bridal stylist for almost a decade, so I may as well put my expertise to good use – you don’t need to spend £££’s to look fabulous on your wedding day. I hope these help for inspo.

“Honestly there’s nothing more rewarding than helping a bride find the most important dress she’ll ever wear.”

It wasn’t long before the post went viral, racking up a whopping 88k views and several comments from social media users online, with dress number one being the resounding favourite.

“You looking stunning in them all but number 1 loved the most,” wrote one.

A fashion expert’s verdict on buying a wedding dress from Shein

WHEN it comes to your big day, you want to feel your best and look your best.
You want to feel special and, more importantly, be comfortable in what you’re wearing, are you going to get that from Shein? I doubt it.
Look, in an ideal world you’re getting hitched to the person of your dreams and what you wear is irrelevant. But let’s be honest, it’s kind of a big deal.
If you’re spending your hard earned cash on food, drinks, favours and everything else to celebrate you and your partner with your nearest and dearest, you deserve a dress that makes you feel like a million dollars.
But a £30 frock from Shein is a gamble.
It might be ill fitting, it might be badly made or just the complete opposite to what you expected.
High street bridal dresses are ten a penny these days with brands such as Asos, Karen Millen and even Primark selling bridal wear.
Make a day out of it and hit your local high street or shopping centre to try on as many as you can until you find ‘the one’, don’t wait for the postman to deliver disappointment.

A second penned: “Oh my…number 1!”

“1 is divine,” a third agreed.

Meanwhile, a fourth praised: “All look good but 1 looks amazing!.”

Elsewhere, another person commented: “25 years ago my beautiful cousin bought her wedding dress from H&M for £15 as she was strapped for cash.

“She was the most beautiful bride I’d ever seen.”

And a further chimed in: “Love them all, but it’s not what you wear ladies it’s how you wear it…with confidence!”
