Coronavirus has made buying a wedding dress a lot harder. First it was the closure of many major factories in China that had previously provided gowns for bridal retailers in the UK, and now it’s the closure of all "non-essential" businesses during lockdown meaning that online shopping is the only option. Add to that the inability to hold large social gatherings, the inability to travel and, now, the inability to leave the house at all, and COVID-19 has made planning a wedding one of the most stressful events. Here, we've rounded up the best wedding dresses to buy now in the hope of relieving some pressure.
