Sep 12, 2008
You will be spending a lot of time to plan for your wedding. In fact, you will also spend a lot of time in order to search for your wedding dress. This is because you will be wearing it on your big day for the whole day. You would like to be the most beautiful bride in the world and it is certain that you will need to make your wedding dress perfect.

Now, you should know why the gown is so important. However, you may also realize that a perfect gown can be something very expensive. It can cost you a few thousand dollars if you really want to get a perfect and unique one. This is not a small amount of money right? As a result, you would want to find some ways to reduce the cost of your wedding dress. Here are some ideas for you to do so.

As a matter of fact, there is a way for you to get your wedding gown without spending any money on it. It is to borrow a dress from your friends or family members who have got married. Of course you may still need to spend some money since you may need to alter the dress a little bit so that it can fit your body shape. However, the amount of money you need to spend will be zero except the cost of alteration.

In fact, the most perfect situation here is that you can wear the wedding dress of your mother. It will make your wedding a lot more meaningful if you can wear the gown of your mother on your big day. As a matter of fact, four to five generations can wear the same gown and there is a case that a wedding dress which has been used for different generations in a time span of 100 years. This is amazing and meaningful right.

Another way to reduce the cost of your wedding dress is to rent one instead of buying a new one. However, you have to be very careful when you are renting the dress. You have to check it carefully when you are picking it. You have to make sure there is no defect on the gown. If any defect is found, you will need to report to the bridal shop. You will require the shop to write them on the contract so that there will not be any arguments concerning this issue when you return the wedding dress.

Purchasing a second hand dress is also one of your options. There are a lot of brides who will consider selling the gown after the wedding. This is because they do not want to waste it. And you may probably purchase it from them. As you may know, the dress may have only been worn for one day and the condition of it can be extremely good. As a result, it is totally wise to purchase a second hand item in this case. Again, you will need to check it carefully before you really purchase it.
