Hi ya Gals, B2B prepare yourselves for a shock if anyone that was looking at a dress months ago, and has now decided to go back and purchase it. Getting married next August, have been dress shopping for the last four months, fell in love with a dress ..but decided to ensure it was the 'right' one by going home, thinking about it, and continue to look around for a further few months, to hold back on any new collection for next year. However after a further two months of checking out other bridal collections, I decided to put a deposit down on this certain dress, only to be told that the designer had increase her prices due to increase of material prices?? Price was original £2.500 ..now it's £3,300?? Yes sterling, nearly fainted ! Have still gone for the dress, as it the one I love .. however am slightly pee off that the price has gone up. So beware B2B's if your ordering dresses, look out for the increase on material prices.. :eek

My mam is a dressmaker and at the minute I'm shopping around for fabric for my dress so I've been chatting to a lot of different fabric sellers about prices and a few of them have mentioned the increase in global prices and that the Pakistan floods had a major impact on global prices.

No worries at all. I just saw there is a piece on the front of the Financial Times today about the price of cotton- interesting but bad for us brides.
