A leading London Clothing alteration service is advising those struggling on a budget to get married to purchase their wedding dress from Oxfam. Ava Smart fashion, based at 38a Lytton Road New Barnet, Hertfordshire, said that by purchasing a second-hand wedding dress it can help people have the perfect wedding day for a lot less.
More than 800,000 people have lost their jobs thanks to the COVID19 pandemic. Many of those people live in London. The financial impact of the COVID19 pandemic has resulted in serious complications for those looking to get married in 2021 and 2022. Those people who have spent years saving up for their big day have seen their wedding budget being spent on mortgages, household bills, and other items to get them through the financial hardship of the pandemic. This has meant tens of thousands of people looking to get married have to cut costs for their big day.
The average cost of a wedding dress from a bridal shop is around £1,500. Thanks to Oxfam, brides can purchase a wedding dress from as little as £40. And by having it altered by Ava Smart fashion which includes altering the hems, sleeves, and shoulders, brides can have their dream wedding dress for a lot less. The money saved can then be spent on other items for the bid day including the groom’s outfit which can also be purchased from Oxfam and altered by the London clothing alterations company.
A spokeswoman for Ava Smart fashion said: “The pandemic has affected people in so many different ways. Those looking to get married this year and next year and working with a much smaller budget. Some couples have had to postpone their wedding day due to spending their wedding funds on essentials. By purchasing a second-hand dress and having our team make the alterations, that dream wedding day can still go ahead.”
Oxfam has a total of 12 bridal departments across the UK, which are located in Bradford, Cambridge, Chippenham, Coventry, Glasgow, Heswall, Leatherhead, Leicester, Poole, Southampton, and York. The wedding dress can be purchased online from Oxfam. Ava Smart fashion can make any changes that the bride needs to make their wedding dress look brand new and provide the perfect fit.

Through their professional clothing alteration services, they can help people save a great deal of money on their wedding day, celebrations, and prom nights.
