Wedding Dresses – Great ideas for getting a budget wedding dress

It’s your day and you and your dress should look spectacular. It is easy to spend a huge portion of your your wedding budget on your dress alone. In order to save you are going to have to put forth a little effort and really shop around.

Very few brides these days are wearing their mother’s wedding gown, but you may know someone else who has a gown that you love. Often vintage gowns can be updated very easily and tailed to fit, for a fraction of the cost of a designer gown.

A second hand gown is  another  great budget wedding dress idea.  If you are going to consider a second hand gown here are some great places to start looking:  Ebay, thrift stores, consignment shops and Craigs List. to name a few of the most popular ones.  Other classified listings to consider are those on wedding blogs like and e-stores that sell used wedding gowns like I personally love the site.  It is extremely well laid out and currently has over 3000 wedding gowns!

If you have your heart set on a new gown, you should begin your search on the clearance racks at high end department stores like Nordstrom and Macy’s. Discount wedding stores like David’s Bridal and Wedding Center USA are also good places to find discount gowns under $100. At the date of this post, both stores are having some great savings. David’s Bridal is offering up to 50% all of their Bridal Gowns. Wedding Center USA is paying the sales tax and offering up to 50% off on select wedding gowns.

David’s Bridal is also having a contest to win a free gown. See Detail under our Wedding Contests category.

I hope these budget wedding dress ideas will help make your hunt for the perfect dress easy, fun, and  affordable.

May you live happily ever after!
