Here’s our cash-saving tips to marry on a budget so you don’t blow £2million like Eugenie – plus you can win £15k

DON’T tell Eugenie, but looking like a princess on your wedding day can be done on the cheap.

  • SAMPLE SALES: Signing up to receive notifications of sample sales for boutiques and designers can save you a fortune.
    Sarah says: “Bridal boutiques often sell off their remaining stock at discounted prices, sometimes as much as 80 per cent lower.”
  • HIT THE HIGH STREET: These days, high street and online stores have wedding gowns to rival their designer counterparts. Earlier this year Missguided offered a £35 ringer for the £100,000 ­Givenchy gown Meghan wore to marry Harry in May.
    H&M also offers budget dresses — with a lookalike of Kate Middleton’s £250,000 Alexander McQueen frock going for £149.99.
  • SHOP FOR SEPARATES: Sarah advises: “A skirt and top combo is not only likely to cost a little less than a full gown, but there’s even the chance you could wear them both again after the big day.
    For example, a lace-style wedding dress from Monsoon costs £499 but a top and skirt in similar fabric can be picked up there for £288 (£109 and £179 respectively) — saving you £211.
  • KEEP IT SIMPLE: Sarah says: “Materials like silk and lace, as well as lots of beading and embroidery, can really raise the price of a dress. If you’re looking to cut costs then channel your inner Meghan and opt for a chic, clean, simple design instead.”
    An embellished gown from Debut at Debenhams could set you back £340, while a plain option from the same range costs around £220.
  • CONSIDER A PRE-LOVED DRESS: Second-hand gowns have (usually) only been worn for that one day but come with a huge discount.
    Use sites like preloved.co.uk or eBay, then pay for any alterations needed to make it your perfect fit.
    Another good site is oxfam.co.uk/shop/bridal — it currently has a lace dress by Pronovias for £300. The brand usually costs upwards of £1,300.
