One of the larger expenses for a wedding can be the wedding gown that the bride wears. Whether you’re being wed in a church, a chapel, in a garden or on the beach, the bride is still inclined to dress like royalty.
But finding and buying a wedding dress doesn’t have to be the huge expense it’s been for previous generations. Follow these suggestions and the answer to what to wear and where to buy it will be a piece of (wedding) cake.
There are about as many different styles of wedding dresses as there are brides getting married. The type of dress you select should reflect the venue where the ceremony will take place. If you want your day to be a casual sand-in-your-toes kind of day then think simple yet elegant, probably without a train trailing behind you.
An option previous generations didn’t have (but wish they had) were once-used wedding gowns that you can purchase at a fraction of their price brand new. Websites like Once Wed has great deals on new, preowned and sample gowns from bridal shops. On their website you can browse wedding dresses for sale by designer, size, price, style or location to find the right pre-owned wedding dress for you. Once Wed has thousands of used designer wedding gowns for sale including Vera Wang, Claire Pettibone, BHLDN, Monique Lhuillier, Katie May, Jenny Packham, and Grace Loves Lace.
Preowned Wedding Dresses connects buyers and sellers of new, preowned and sample wedding dresses and bridal party gowns. They also carry any accessories you might need. Their site has a wedding gown calculator where you can determine what your gown is worth.
Another source for everything wedding related where you can save a bundle is Tradesy. This company is not limited to just gowns and veils either. Even the groom and his groomsmen are taken care of here. Tuxedoes, shoes, bridal jewelry, wedding decorations, and even invitation and paper are available at sweet prices worth checking out.
