The Duchess of Cambridge has her on speed dial (we’re assuming) and she’s dressed everyone from Angelina Jolie to Katy Perry. But Jenny Packham isn’t just known for those gorgeous red carpet creations; she also knows a thing or two when it comes to the most important dress of all: the wedding dress.
Jenny Packham brides have included Fearne Cotton and Kim Sears, who clearly both fell for JP’s signature, ethereal silhouette and subtle embellishment. While we’re also huge fans of the designer’s treasure trove of wedding gowns, prices start at around £2,000, which doesn’t leave a lot of money left for- well, for the rest of the wedding. So join us as we rejoice at the news of Jenny Packham’s latest venture on the high street.

She’s teamed up with US chain David’s Bridal, which came to our own UK shores back in 2013. Thanks to its informal approach to the Big Day, customers are able to try on dresses without making an appointment first, making the whole process more accessible. Wonder by Jenny Packham features breathtaking bridal gowns in sizes four to 30, starting at just £850.
Yup, we can all get our very own designer wedding dress on a strictly non-designer budget. From A-line chiffon floor-sweepers to sequined sheaths and lattice beaded bodices, this new range features the very best elements of Jenny Packham’s usual glamorous designs, with something for every kind of bride. There are accessories too, from veils to shoes, and there are even options for bridesmaids and the mother-of-the-bride.
Currently, there are David’s Bridal stores in Westfield Stratford, Glasgow and Watford, but the brand is ultimately looking to expand into every major city over the next few years. Sounds like good news to us.
