You really don’t have to go far to find inexpensive wedding dresses. You don’t have to have a “wedding club” membership. You don’t have to “know the right people”. And you don’t have to travel to a different state or country. Truth be told, you just need to follow these simple tips if you want to find inexpensive wedding dresses that look beautiful & elegant.

Getting a Wedding Dress for Less…

1. Ask Mom. This is the easiest way to get a wedding gown under the budget. Chances are your mother, grandmother, or some other female relative has a dress which you could wear. Ask her if she’d grant you the “honor” of wearing the gown for your wedding. Also, ask if it would be okay to make a few small changes to the dress as well.

2. Shop During the Off Season. Oddly enough, the prices on wedding dresses skyrocket during the late spring and summer months. To avoid this “out of nowhere” price hike, try searching for that perfect wedding dress in the fall and/or winter months. Chances are you’ll save big bucks if you do.

3. Be Thrifty. There’s no shame in visiting thrift stores in search of inexpensive wedding dresses. Such places tend to have a wide selection of clothing choices; which will likely include an area filled with nice dresses and other formal attire. Browse around and see if anything catches your eye.

4. Don’t Dent, Rent. If you want a beautiful, new wedding dress yet wish to avoid “denting” the budget too badly, the most logical option for you is to rent. Renting is a very wise option, as you’ll be able to wear the dress you want for a price you can very easily afford. The only drawback to this particular method — if you can even call it that — is you won’t be able to keep the dress afterwards.

These are 4 of the easiest and quickest ways of acquiring inexpensive wedding dresses. If you refuse to follow these simple tips, well, then you’re likely not going to save money with this part of the wedding planning.
