Question:

How can I find the perfect wedding dress but not spend a fortune on it?

For the Bride on a Budget

Not every bride is fortunate enough to have an unlimited budget for their wedding. But budgeted brides shouldn't worry because here are some creative ways to find a dream gown within their means:

  • Shop sample sales at a great bridal boutique. Sample sales offer designer dresses at a fraction of the cost.
  • Consignment shops offer wedding gowns that were gently used or possibly never even used at a minimal price.
  • Online auctions such as E-bay offer new, used and heirloom wedding dresses to you. Simply place your bid and cross your fingers.
  • Outlet stores often carry wedding dresses at a very small price as well. You may have to look through racks for hours, but it could save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
  • Are you or someone you know a talented seamstress? Sew your own gown with beautiful fabrics for the cost of only the materials.
  • Honor your mother or another family member by wearing their gown. It's free and very sentimental.
Spending a fortune on your wedding dress isn't necessary to have a beautiful one. Finding a dress that makes you happy and has meaning to you is the way to go.
