Peacocks to sell Kate Middleton-inspired wedding dress for £60


Would you buy your wedding dress from Peacocks?

That’s not a question we ever thought we’d find ourselves asking, because the brand is best known for their low-budget fashion pieces (and their recent collaboration with Pearl Lowe) than for dressing brides-to-be, but the recent wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William has apparently inspired the chain to make their first ever wedding gown.

The dress, shown above, is a limited edition, and will go on sale on August 7th, priced at £60. Loosely based on the dress worn by the new Duchess of Cambridge, it’s one of many wedding gowns to be inspired by the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen original, and possibly one of the cheapest.

What do you think?

    I think it is a beautiful dress and will soon sell out.

    I would worry about the quality in real life. But the pic shows a lovely dress!

    Agree with the comment about the quality…. but I love the design of the dress. I think it would be very flattering to a variety of body shapes.

    Again, I’d be worried about the quality… But I like the idea of only spending £60 on a wedding dress! That’s a bargain!

    “…loosely based…”??? That’s an understatement! Both dresses have lace, and that’s about it… The Peacocks dress is okay though, but should’ve left out the tie waist bow at the back – and it doesn’t have the ‘wow/centre of attention’ look a bride should carry on her wedding day…
