Do You Know How to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress?

Aug 22, 2007
Your wedding dress must be the most important item in your big day because you will wear it and walk down the aisle. A perfect wedding dress will make your guest remember you and your wedding.

Although everyone knows that the wedding dress is so essential and you may want to find the most perfect one so that you can be the most beautiful bride on your big day, you may still want to save money on this item. At the end of the day it should not be a good idea to be in debt just because you want to have a perfect wedding. The followings are some ways you can think of in order to save money on your dress on your big day.

The best way of getting an inexpensive but elegant wedding dress is of course to borrow one. It will cost you nothing if you have a friend or relative who has gotten married and has a beautiful and elegant gown at home. It will also be excellent if you can wear your mother's dress on your big day. It does not only save you money but also possess a special meaning since it is your mother's gown.

If it is not quite possible for you to borrow a dress or your mother does not have one, you can consider renting one instead of buying one. The cost of renting a gown is certainly only a fraction of the cost of buying a new one. Thus it can save you money. It is also consider environmental friendly since you may probably create less waste if you rent a wedding dress.

Besides renting your wedding dress, another way of saving money on your gown is to buy a used one. It is especially perfect if you love vintage items. You may consider buying a vintage gown. In fact a vintage gown can be more stylish than a newly designed one.

If you decide to buy a new wedding dress anyway, you should try to approach shop from shop in order to get the best deal. The price of two similar dresses can be a lot different in two different shops. You may also do extensive research on the web to see if there are online shops which offer even better deals. However, you should bear in mind that you need to ask on every detail of the wedding dress if you are going to buy one online.

After the wedding, you will still have a chance to get some money back from your wedding dress. You can consider selling the used gown to the others such that you can get some money back. And this is just another way of saving money. By selling your gown you are in fact also helping the others who want to save money on the wedding dress. And on the other hand it helps to protect our earth since your gown can, and will be reused. However, you should try to keep the gown in good condition so that it can be sold at a good price.
