3 Ways to Save on Wedding Dress Costs
Everything about a wedding is expensive – and as the guest list grows so does the bill. But Village Bridals is here to inform you that not everything about your special day has to be expensive.
Your wedding ensemble is the single most important purchase you will make for your wedding. It’s important as a bride that your wedding dress is everything you’d always dreamed of, including the price.
Here are three tips from the bridal experts on how to keep your wedding dress costs at a minimum.
1. The more elaborate your wedding dress is, the more expensive it will be. While no bride wants a ‘plain jane’ wedding gown, not everyone can afford the ‘disco diva’ covered in beading. Try choosing a wedding dress with less embellishments for a lower price tag. If you are concerned that your dress is too simple, dress it up with bridal accessories.
2. Avoid custom alterations. Your wedding gown price can increase dramatically with every custom wedding dress alteration you ask for – such as changing the neckline shape or altering sleeves. If you are concerned with price, try finding a wedding dress that you love just the way it is, rather than trying to transform a dress with alterations.
3. Timing is everything. Bridal stores have discount sales for wedding dress collections in the winter and summer to make room from the next wedding dress season. If your heart is set on a pricey wedding dress designer, try shopping during these seasons to snag your wedding dress on sale. If you do not mind wearing a ‘never worn’ wedding dress, sample sales are another way to save big on wedding gown costs.
