I got married in a £3 wedding dress I bought in a charity shop – I got my shoes there too for £6 | The Sun

THIS thrifty woman walked down the aisle in a stunning white gown which cost just £3.12!

Jillian Lynch, 32, found her dress just one month before her wedding in May 2022, and was able to source her dress and shoes at a charity shop.

In total, she spent £6.66 ($8) on her shoes, bringing her entire outfit to a total of £9.79 ($11.75).

She revealed that most of her guests had no idea that her outfit cost so little.

She said: "It certainly wasn't a secret, but I only told a couple family members so most of our guests thought it was a typical wedding dress.

"Most brides don't go around the wedding telling everyone how much they spent and I didn't either.

"People who know me know that thrifting is what I do."

Jillian, who recently moved to Dallas, Texas, found her dress while living in Ohio.

She said: "My husband, who I do not wish to name, and I were originally planning to wear clothes we already own to get married.

"At first, we didn't want a ceremony or anything, we were just planning to go down to the courthouse on our anniversary.

"After talking with some friends and family, it became clear they should be involved, so we decided to have a small ceremony literally a month before our date.

"I immediately started looking in charity shops for something I could wear, which is just how I typically shop."

Jillian revealed that she would have turned to traditional bridal dress shops if she hadn't been able to find a dress in a charity shop.

She said: "It's always hard going thrifting with something specific in mind.

"Usually I would just go to a store and browse what they have, so this was a little different.

"I was more worried about the shoes than the dress, because I wanted something formal but with a very low heel.

"I knew it wouldn't be easy to find exactly what I was envisioning.
