Here comes to Budget Bride...
Weddings can be expensive. And when it comes to the dress, the bride-to-be wants her dream dress. But how to get your dream dress without a financial nightmare?
Don't think of it as used, think of it as eco-chic. A pre-owned dress can save you up to 90 percent off of the retail price. And when you can get a seriously high end designer dress for WAY less, why wouldn't you?
Go for a funkier look
If your wedding has a more casual vibe (small & intimate, backyard ceremony, or destination wedding) a cute shorter cocktail length dress may be your best bet. And because shorter dresses have less fabric, it will be alot less expensive!
Think custom made
Find a dress that fits you well (but may have details you don't love) and take it to a reputable seamstress to have it custom made to your body type. You could even have details added/removed to make the style more uniquely you!
