Whats the best way of getting hold of a wedding dress for a shoot? Model is size 8-10

Possibly a daft question but never having sourced a wedding dress, I'm not sure what the options are. Buy then resell? Hire?

There seem to be a few charity shops these days that specialise solely in wedding attire.

Find a designer to collaborate with in return they get images, I found a designer at a vintage wedding fair, she made 6 dresses especially for our shoot to fit, came on the day with a ton of accessories and did all the styling for me

My local hospice charity shop had a couple of dozen when I was last in, I picked up 1 for £40.

You may have a look at eBay, I once bought a wedding dress for a shoot there, paid EUR 35,- iirc.

+1 for the ebay suggestion. If you are not in a massive hurry you can get very nice dresses brand new from China at very reasonable prices.

I recently bought 3 for shooting from ebay

Including a brand new one which was bought as a matching replacement but never used and a pure silk cristiana couture designer one, all dirt cheap

It's an aladins cave!
