Im not yet sure whether Im a modern bride, a princess bride or a fashion bride, but circumstances dictate that Im a thrifty bride which makes getting to grips with bridal sample sales a must.
The thing is, all I know about bridal sample sale shopping is this scene from Friends, which is seared into my memory.
Did you buy your dress at a sample sale? Please tweet me @leisabarnett @ELLEUK for a little vitual hand holding, and tell me your story, and reassure me that I can get through it without back-up and a whistle
