You’re probably trying to figure out how to save money on your wedding dress, right?

Fortunately, finding discount wedding dresses isn’t as difficult as you might think.

In fact, there are a few really easy ways to do so!

For starters, check out these ways to save money on your wedding dress.

Here are a few of my favorites:


  • Prices may vary from neighborhood to so look outside of the immediate local area.
  • A simple gown will cost less than an elaborate one.
  • Consignment shops often have great deals on wedding gowns.
  • Rent a wedding dress, instead of buying one!
  • Don’t buy your shoes at a bridal store; they’re too expensive there.
  • Plain white satin shoes are often the cheapest option, and who’s going to see them under your dress?
  • Ask a friend to make a wedding veil for you.

Even if you only follow one of those suggestions, you could dramatically cut the cost of your wedding dress.
