@Rachel631:  Depending on what kind of vintage style you’re after, there are a few around the Spitalfields market – Dolly Dare does some lovely stuff, if that’s the style you’re after, and they also do commissions:

I have the MOST beautiful skirt from these guys, and I believe they have a flagship store in London:

These guys are online, but have some lovely stuff:

Hope that helps!

@Rachel631:  Are you looking to try on first? Because for vintage style clothing, Unique Vintage are very good, and whilst there’d be shipping costs from the US, the conversion rate works slightly in our favour on the prices!

How about these?

I really recommend them though, I’ve had a couple of dresses from them and the service and quality have just been fantastic.

Vivien of Holloway has exactly what you’re describing. The prices are slightly higher at around 70-80 quid but I bet they’d give you a discount if you were buying for your whole bridal party. And there’s a store in Holloway so people could go try them on. They also have sales fairly often so you could probably get them at your price point.

Good luck!

There is a shop in the East End called The East End Thrift Store i believe. It is all second hand etc, but i know of a lot of people who have found beautiful vintage clothes, dresses, accesories etc in there for an absolute bargain! And furthermore they also have ‘sale days’ where you pay for a bag and whatever you can stuff into the bag is yours. Not sure if itll have what youre looking for, but maybe worth investigating if youre going to shoreditch anyway?
