Among the things that you should consider to find out what exactly is the size of the dress you need to purchase. Although, it’s not enough that you find out your “regular dress” size. You also have to consider the type of material that your wedding dress has. Sometimes, medium sized dresses would fit too tightly on a bride who usually wears medium sized regular clothing. One way of getting through this is to try on several wedding dresses in commercial bridal stores. This will give you a better perspective of what size and material would look good on you, and since you will not be obliged to buy these dresses, you won’t have to worry about spending anything at all. Once you have decided on your size, then you are ready to shop for your wedding dress.
Among the great places that you can check out are local thrift shops. Wedding dresses may be hard to find but sometimes, they do appear – and in many times, under a hundred dollars. This is a great place to find vintage pieces and if you have to resize it a bit, it wouldn’t cost that much. Perhaps you can find a great temple dress or another vintage styled dress. Another great place to try searching in is any dry cleaning shop in town. It might be unusual but sometimes there are wedding dresses that have not been claimed for a long time and the cleaners have the right to sell them once the claiming date is past its due.
If you still can’t find a dress suitable for you, then you might find your luck in wedding dress rentals. These rental shops have a vast selection of wedding dresses and you could pay only have the price of their worth. The only catch is you have to return them.
Wedding dresses usually hike up the wedding budget. With these options available, you can spend your extra money in other wedding specifics like your honeymoon – or better yet, to save for the future.
