Save Money on Your Wedding Dress!!

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies!

 

Iâ€ve been off the forum for a while. Iâ€ve been enmeshed in dresses and rings. Anyway, I am the girl on a budget (as you all know). So, I am always trying to find was to cut corners. For those of you who are in the same boat, I thought Iâ€d let you know how I saved around $350 dollars on my wedding dress.

 

After many weeks of shopping at many local stores, I found “the oneâ€. You know the felling, when you put the dress on and the butterflies in your stomach start fluttering like crazy. The saleswoman almost had to literally rip the dress off my body! Anyway, my budget for my dress and veil was not to exceed $1,000 with tax. And needless to say, this was not going to happen at the store where I found it. So I shopped around. And I shopped some more with no success.

 

Then I found this Ebay store called Valâ€s Collections. The Ebay store sells discount certificates for dresses that are sold at an online store at VAL Collections - Wedding Dress, Bridal Gown. How it works is you buy a certificate that is valued at around $75 for around $40 on Ebay then you apply it to a purchase on the website. The dresses on the website are already hundreds of dollars cheaper than they are in stores and then you save even more money on top of that!

 

At first, I was skeptical, but the owner has excellent reviews on Ebay. She has also been extremely responsive and answered ALL of my many questions in a timely manor. SO I bought the dress. I will not receive it for another couple of months (the delivery time was the same with the local stores). But, when I do, I will let you all know.

 

Anyway, if you are trying to save money check it out.

 

And, without further delay…..here is a link to my dress!!!! MaggieSottero.com - Collection

 

It is the Maggie and Midgley ASM3050. I am soooooo excited!!!

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
