FROM the food to the venue, weddings can end up costing a small fortune.
But one bride-to-be has revealed how there's a super easy way to cut back on costs when it comes to selecting your dream wedding dress – and that's by shopping at Shein.
In the clip posted to TikTok (@christinatblaney), Christina Blaney can be seen trying on four different gowns, with the prices starting from as little as just £37, to prove that you haven't got to splash the cash to look good.
She begins by slipping into the 'Contrast Guipure Lace Mesh Tube Wedding Dress Without Veil,' which is currently in the sale for just £42.99.
"This one has so much material, it'd be so good for photos," she says.
"It's very big for me in the top, which is quite rare because I am quite large chested. However, if this was adjusted, it could fit beautifully."

Pointing to the semi-sheer lace detail underneath her bust, she says: "I love the detailing of the beads…it is lovely, but I don't know if it needs to be that see through bit, so I might put a piece of white material and just have that beading detail."

Christina goes on to say that the gown does also come with straps that you can attach.
"I love this one because of this massive skirt, which would look amazing for photos," she continues.
"However, my issue with it is why isn't this white skirt as wide as well?Because I can't quite put the underskirt underneath it to make it big and puffy."

Next up, she slips into the 'EVER-PRETTY Ruffle Armhole Lace Trim Backless Wedding Dress,' which is priced at £37.49 and features a stunning V-shape at the back.
"This one is so flattering for any shape," she says. "I just love how light, yet so elegant that it is."
However, she points out: "So this one wouldn't be for everyone because it's extremely low cut.
"But a bit of tape, you can make them look their best on the day – you'll just feel fabulous.
"I absolutely love the sleeves detail. So, like me, if you're a bit self conscious of your arms, then these just cover up that top bit and you just feel a lot more comfortable."
Christina continues: "When you look closely at this one, you can see the design underneath is this lovely lace material, and then it's got another layer on top, so it looks really expensive…"
The fashion fan then moves onto the £39.99 'Contrast Mesh V Neck Wedding Dress.'
"So beautiful plunging neckline," she enthuses. "I love the beads at the side.
"This one has quite a wide skirt…it opens up, so that would be fabulous for photos.
"I absolutely love this beading detail on the side and I think the skirt is one of the best."
Last but not least, Christina slips into the 'EVER-PRETTY Low Back Lace Bodice Mesh Wedding Dress,' which costs £44.99.
"It's got this gorgeous criss cross pattern, and it's the same length at the back as it is at the front," she explains.
"There's a lot of this dress that I do like….I love this butterfly beading detail around the front there.
"I really like this little bit of lace there just to keep your modesty
and it's not too low cut…
"I just wish it wasn't these just solid white straps.
"It would be better if it was more lacey and dainty and delicate, rather than just sort of cheap white straps."
It wasn't long before the post went viral, garnering a whopping 716k views and several comments from fashion fans – with many eager to share their personal favourites.
"3 is absolutely gorgeous on you, but I like them all," praised one.
A second enthused: "The second dress was MADE for you!"
A third penned: "The one with the beads on the arms, was that light or heavy. Suitable for a hot summer?"
Meanwhile, a fourth noted: "Thank you for doing a positive review. Sooo many people do this as a huge joke, but it’s good to see real options if you’re on a budget."
Another chimed in: "The second to last one is pretty close to my dream dress tbh."
