While they had dated for five years, the pair got married in early July. She bargained the laces-long sleeved white gown for an affordable price as she bought it from a Sue Ryder Store in York.

Although Cat had few adjustments made to the dress, the dress indeed came out gorgeous. She added buttons to the back and to the top of the sleeves. She equally placed some flowers to the front of the gown.

Right after visiting the bridal store, she deduced that the wedding dress dated back to 1950s and seems to be made from home and not from a bridal store.

“After our wedding, I’ve gotten lovely compliments about my wedding dress. Many people message me asking where it was from, so I thought I would share the whole story.”

Observing all of this, the bride – Cat Wilkinson took to her Facebook page to share the incredible story after being flooded with compliments on the frock.

She added: “The next day I was looking in the charity shops and saw the dress on one of the rails. It was a charity shop on two floors and I was upstairs and phoned Mike to tell him not to come up while I tried something on and to ask if the shop volunteer could come up to take a photo. Nevertheless, I bought the dress there and then for the small sum of £35.”

Cat, however, concluded that her £35 wedding dress should be a reminder that some things don’t need to be expensive to make one feel special.
