When it comes to the wedding day, the bride wants everything to go perfectly and as planned. And one of the most important parts of this is the dress that she chooses to wear on her special day. Are you soon to be married? Have you begun looking for a wedding dress, and are hoping to settle on the perfect gown without shelling out an arm and a leg? In this article, we will share some great tips on where to find cheap bridal dresses that you will be sure to love.
1. David’s Bridal
David’s Bridal is a vendor of bridal gowns that are known for being a nice quality while staying in the budget of most brides-to-be. In fact, a large number of dresses sold by David’s Bridal are priced $99.
2. The Clearance Section
This is a section of any bridal gown vendor to take a look through when you are on the lookout for cheap bridal dresses. While most new collections, or dresses that are “in season”, are priced high, gowns from the previous season are often marked down significantly. Browse through clearance sections either online or in-store to find a beautiful, never-before-worn bridal gown that not only matches your vision for your wedding day but also your budget.
3. Secondhand Shops
If you are not opposed to wearing a dress that has been worn previously, secondhand shops provide ample opportunity to find a cheap dress that is in good shape. Of course, when you visit a consignment shop or secondhand store, there is no guarantee that there will be a wedding dress on the rack for sale. But it is still worth a look if there are a few of these stores in your area. It may take a little digging, but you will be pleased as punch if you find the perfect gown for a fraction of what you pay wholesale.
This is a great way to locate a dress for little to no money while having the opportunity to wear a gown that has already been worn by someone in your family. For example, your mother may have saved her wedding dress from years ago and would be thrilled to see you walk down the aisle in the same gown. Do you have other friends or family members who are married? It never hurts to ask whether or not they have saved their dress and if they would be alright with you taking it off their hands or borrowing it for your nuptials.
5. Inexpensive Online Vendors
Another way to locate a cheap bridal dress is to browse the selection with inexpensive online vendors, like ModCloth. ModCloth sells adorable wedding attire that is priced well, and fit for the bride who wants to wear something nontraditional.
Here is a tip: when looking for a dress, try browsing white dresses instead of dresses labeled as wedding gowns. White dresses often come in styles that are wedding appropriate but you would be amazed at how much less these cost when they are not specifically marketed toward brides.
