Wedding dresses are a big investment, and with so many options, it can be difficult to find the perfect one. But don’t worry- there’s an easier way. When you’re done reading this article, you’ll know how to get a $2000 wedding dress for $399.
In this article, I’ll share all the tips and tricks that helped me land my dream wedding dress at a fraction of the cost. As someone who loves nothing more than saving money, I’m ecstatic about helping people save money on their wedding as well.
What to Know about your Dress
First, you’re going to need to know a few things about the dress that you want. For example, is it a long or short-sleeved dress? Will it be a formal or casual event? Is there an intricate pattern or do the colors fluctuate throughout the dress? .Once you’ve gotten some answers about your dress, take those details and set them aside for now.
Next, think about your budget. This may seem like a no-brainer because you’re working towards buying a $2000 wedding dress, but if you have more than $2,000 saved up already, then go ahead and spend those savings on something else.
However, if you don’t have that much saved up and are looking at this as a practical way to save money on your wedding (as opposed to just an idea), then figure out how much money you can realistically spend on your dress.
Finally, think about what style of wedding and what events will be involved in your wedding planning process. If it’s going to be an outdoor spring wedding with lots of outdoor activities like picnicking and barbecuing, then forget about trying to find an affordable long-sleeved formal gown. But if it’s going to be a winter wedding with lots of indoor activities like dancing in front of the fireplace at home or at the reception venue, then options become more accessible.
How to find the Perfect Wedding Dress
The first step to finding your dream wedding dress is figuring out what you like. If you’re looking for a modern and chic look, bright colors are probably your best bet. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something traditional with a little less flair, a white or ivory gown is probably your best option.
Once you know what you’re looking for, figure out how much money you want to spend on it. That is an important consideration because spending too much will lead to disappointment and that’s not something anyone wants.
How to Buy a Wedding Dress
There are dozens of different options when it comes to wedding dresses. You can find them at a department store, a bridal boutique, or even online. Whatever you choose, be sure to take a look at the costs and the quality. Buying online is always the best option for getting an affordable dress- as long as you know what to expect and that the quality won’t be compromised.
The most important thing is to make sure your wedding dress fits your body type and has all of the features that you like about it. Is it made of silk or lace? What kind of embellishments does it have? Do you want something strapless or long sleeved.
Once you’ve found your perfect dress, do not buy it yet! Instead, order a custom size if possible. This will ensure that your dress will fit perfectly on your big day.
Where to Buy a Wedding dress
There are many places to buy a wedding dress, including online retailers and boutiques. You can also try consignment stores like the resale shops at Nordstrom. If you’re looking for something specific, you can use internet search engines to find a specific item and order it online.
Before you start shopping, think about your budget and what style of dress you want. I wanted an affordable one-shoulder ball gown with a sweetheart neckline that was airy and light. But I only had a $400 budget for my entire wedding dress, so I was limited in my options! That said, I ended up finding the perfect dress at a vintage store at Nordstrom’s.
How to find the right size for your dress
When shopping for a wedding dress, the sizing chart is the most important thing you have. You should choose your size based on the measurements in the chart and not by how it fits you. Buying a dress that doesn’t fit is a waste of money.
If you’re unsure of what size to buy, try asking friends or family members who are also shopping for their wedding dresses. They’ll be able to tell you which size would work for them and vice versa.
How to Alter your Dress.
Try altering your dress to make it a more flattering look. This can take the form of taking in the waist, adding sleeves, or simply removing a few inches from the hemline. If you’re feeling particularly creative, try changing up the neckline or color of your dress.
Once you’ve altered your dress, test it out at home before going to a store and spending money on alterations that you won’t need. You’ll want to be sure you love how the dress looks before dropping hundreds of dollars on alterations that may not make your wedding day dreams come true.
