7 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

Are you a wedding vendor?

Wedding dress shopping is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning, but it can also be one of the most stressful - especially when you consider the average cost of a wedding dress in the Greece is around 2000 euros. Whether you're looking to stretch your budget or save for other aspects of your big day, here are some tips to help you find the perfect dress without breaking the bank.

Set a Budget

7 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

Before you start shopping, determine how much you are willing to spend on your dress. This will help you avoid overspending and keep your budget in check. Once you have a budget in mind, stick to it. You don’t want to fall in love with a dress that’s outside of your budget and end up regretting it later.

Shop Off-Season

Many bridal salons offer sales and discounts during off-peak wedding months, such as January and February. This is a great time to find great deals on wedding dresses. Keep in mind that the selection may be limited during these times, but it’s still worth a look.

Browse Second-Hand Options

There are many online stores where you can find used wedding dresses at very affordable prices. Just be sure to thoroughly research the seller and the dress to make sure you're getting a good deal. You may also consider buying a pre-owned dress from a consignment shop or checking out local bridal swaps for your dream dress at a discounted price.

Shop at Discount Bridal Stores

There are many discount bridal stores that offer beautiful dresses at a fraction of the cost of designer gowns. These stores often carry overstock dresses, samples, and discontinued styles. The prices are often much lower than what you would find at a traditional bridal salon, so it’s definitely worth checking out.

Rent Your Dress

7 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

Wedding dress rental services, allow you to rent a dress for a fraction of the cost of buying one. Just be sure to reserve your dress well in advance and keep in mind that the options may be limited. This is a great option for brides who don't mind wearing a previously-worn gown, and want to save some money.

Consider a Simplified Dress

If you're looking to save money, consider a dress that is more simple in design. A dress with fewer embellishments and a simpler silhouette will cost less than a heavily-embellished gown. If you still want to add some bling, consider wearing statement jewelry or a statement headpiece instead.

Another way to save money is to sell your wedding dress after you are done with all your wedding obligations. This way you can get back much of the money you spent on buying it.
