Wedding dresses normally costing up to $2,000 are being auctioned off for $9  

Those hoping to score a bargain ahead of their big day are in luck after an auction house announced they would be selling wedding dresses from just $9.

Gregsons Auctioneers in Perth have put the tiny reserve price on dozens of dresses after they were given them in an insurance claim by a well-known bridal shop.

The brands featured include popular labels like Helen Fontaine, Moir and Drop Dead Gorgeous and normally fetch prices of between $500 and $2,000.

Some of the dresses smell of smoke after the shop’s neighbouring business caught fire, but while a dry clean may be needed the garments bear no other signs of damage.

The only catch is when potential buyers come to inspect the dresses ahead of the two auctions closing on July 8 and July 9, they won’t be allowed to try them on.

And the nature of the auctions mean they can’t get their money back if they change their mind.

He said his business usually auctions off industrial equipment like excavators and cranes and his latest lots were an unusual addition.

But he hoped the low-priced reserves could help women who would struggle to get enough money together to buy a dress otherwise.

‘Technically they have to be sold as part of an insurance claim so there is no right of return,’ the auction house’s general manager Jack Gregson told FEMAIL.

‘People will have to think about that before they buy.’

The dresses will be available for inspection on Friday from 9am to 4pm and Saturday from 9am to 12pm at the auctioneer’s premises in Welshpool.

Bids will close for the sizes 14-24 auction from 6pm on July 9 and for sizes 6-12 from 6pm on July 8.
