How To Tips for Saving Money On Your Wedding Dress

Sep 23rd 2014 at 12:16 AM

When it comes to buying a wedding dress, the first thing that comes to mind is the staggering price! Wedding dresses can run from hundreds to thousands of dollars. When you begin looking for your perfect wedding dress that no one will ever forget, remember these 9 tips for finding the gorgeous, yet affordable, wedding dress of your dreams.

1) Consignment Shops

Some people call it thrifting, others call it hand-me-downs, I call it smart! Many women realize that they will only wear their wedding dress once in their lives. So, they sell it to a consignment shop who then resells it at a lower price. It could be used, but it will most likely be in pristine condition. I know many brides who  not only have found a bargain at a consignment shop, but the dress of their dreams as well!

2) Bridal Section of the Department Store

Most department stores have a bridal section that offer gowns, veils, gloves, shoes, and many other things essential to your wedding. They also offer these things at much lower prices. Department stores can carry some of the top bridal gown brands at a lower and much more reasonable price point. Try stores such as Dillards, JCPenney, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman.

3) Craigslist

It may sound a bit out of the norm, but search craigslist for wedding dresses! I have done this in the past for clients and you would be surprised at the quality you may find. The seller is also near the area you live in, so it is much easier to stop by and check out the dress in person before making the purchase.

4) Ebay

Along the lines of craigslist, sellers post their bridal gowns, some used and some new, for anyone to buy. On eBay, they range from the most affordable brands to designer brands, so there is a great variety to choose from. With eBay, you can search for exactly what you want, usually at a much lower price.

5) Sample Sales

Wedding designers and bridal shops often have sample sales a few times a year of their wedding dresses. At these sample sales, the choices and sizes may be a bit limited, but most brides have to have their wedding dress altered regardless. It is smart to attend a designer wedding dress sample sale to find a designer gown at a much lower cost but with the highest quality.
