Wedding Dress Budget

Recommended Posts

I never thought I would get my dress at David's Bridal, but I did. I love it. I spent $375 on it and it is perfect for my DW wedding. I went to bridal boutiques before going to David's, but I couldn't find anything light and flowy for the beach. Most of the dresses I saw were heavy satin and lace.

Absolutely doable...When you go to Bridal shops ask for their destination section. Dresses are usually lower priced as they are not made with as much material. Usually made with lighter chifon rather than heavy satin. If you find one that you like look for it online. One site that has dresses for really good deals is houseofbride.com, they are genuine not knock offs, just a discount site and they carry tons of deigners and free shipping within US. Also try bridalonlinestore.com I found one there I almost bought. Good luck.

I'm also a wedding planner here at home, and I always recommend (to a bride on a budget) to go see this seamstress we have in town and she does great work. She will make any dress for $300-$350. Look into seamstresses and their work in your home town. If you find a great one, then I say go into a bridal shop try on any dress you like, take photos of you in it, get photos off the internet and take it to the seamstress. Who cares if its a specific designer or not! You're wearing it for one day. Check it out.


I would also check out Davids like the girls said. I didn't think I'd find my dress, but I did!! I bought it during the $99 sale and I spent $270 when it was originally $400 and its perfect for my beach wedding.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
