How To Find Cheap Wedding Gowns

I can almost here you say . . . Cheap wedding gowns? . . . “I don’t know about that.”

First let me say when I use the word cheap I am referring to affordable wedding gowns.

But like most people, when you hear the word cheap you might immediately think of something that is of very poor quality. “Not the case here!”

I am making suggestions for how to find nice quality gowns at a savings to you. The best bargain wedding dresses are used wedding gowns.

“If you buy a top bridal gown designer gown that is used . . . you save will save a tremendous amount of money for a good quality dress.”

”Brides tell me all the time how much money they save buying used wedding dresses.”

So don’t overlook used bridal gowns as a way to save money on your dress.

Cheap Bridal Gowns:
Affordable Wedding Dresses That Are "Brand New"

Yes you can find cheap wedding gowns that are “new.” Where do you start?

  • Go to bridal shops when they have sales. Call your local shop to find out when they hold these. Watch your local newspaper. David's Bridal has low priced wedding gowns and is also known for it's $99 wedding gown sale. You can purchase their sample dresses and discountinued styles for this price.
  • Buy a sample wedding dress from a wedding dress shop. How? Bridal shops will sell their sample dresses when the style is discontinued or need more room for the new styles. These dresses can be real bargains. Most shops sell them for "50 percent or more" off the retail costs. The gown will have some wear and tear on it from brides trying it on. Sometimes you might need to get it cleaned as well as have some of the missing beading replaced. Find out when the bridal shop will have a sample sale.
  • Go to bridal stores who sell off the rack. Ready to wear bridal gowns are sold at www.alfredangelostores.com. I recently had a bride who saved hundreds off of a dress she purchased at the Alfred Angelo Stores than if she had ordered it through a bridal salon. Look for a www.groupusa.com store to purchase a bridal dress off the rack at a bargain price.
  • Want to save 20% to 60% or more on your favorite wedding dress designers gowns. Then consider discount wedding gowns which are sold from online bridal stores. Click the link to learn the pros and the cons of buying your wedding dress online.
  • You can save by buying a gown at a wedding dress designers trunk show sale. Those are sometimes held at your local bridal shops when they come to town.
  • Find a white formal dress you can use as a wedding dress. These can be found at your local formal boutiques or search online stores.
  • Some brides I have worked with in the past found “white or ivory” dresses at special occasion boutiques or from the formal wear department in local retail stores. Take a look at Macy's online store for wedding dresses at low prices!
  • Use a bridesmaids dress as your wedding dress is another cheap wedding gown idea. Bridesmaids dress designers make some of their dresses in white and ivory. If you want a simple wedding gown this can be the way to go. These are also good to use as a casual informal wedding dress.
  • Filene’s Basement is a way to save big bucks on designer wedding dresses if you are willing to travel to Chicago, Illinois.
  • Wedding Dress Warehouse outlet stores are advertised in the bridal magazines. I have had brides save lots on their dresses even though they had to travel some distance to go to a warehouse. Bridal Mart in North Carolina sell designer wedding dresses at deep discounts. One bride told me it's a no frills store and you don't have the luxury of nice changing rooms, so you can't be bashful. But she was able to find her dream gown by Alfred Angelo at a price she could well afford!
  • Chinese Wedding Dresses - gowns purchased directly from China is another way you can find cheap wedding gowns and save lots of money. They boast that they can copy designer wedding dresses at a fraction of the cost. Is this true? Before you consider buying this way read these experiences others had purchasing this way...
