Finding a Cheap Wedding Dress

By Mae Summerville

For something worn only once and for a very few hours, a wedding dress needs to be purchased for as low a price as possible. That is why I used the term cheap in this article. Finding a cheap dress does not mean a shoddy dress or an ugly dress it does mean finding a gorgeous dress at a discount price. I hope to help you do that.

There are many ways to find an inexpensive wedding dress. One way is to search on Craig's list classified ads. Craig's list is set up by city and so all you would need to do is go to Craig's list and find the closest metropolitan area . They have great deals on all kinds of items so may find way more than just a cheap wedding dress.

Another great way to find an cheap gown is to look at other online classifieds. One of my favorites is Backpage. They have nationwide listings and have tons of discount wedding dresses. Just go to Google and search for online classifieds and you will find all sorts of online classifieds.

Yet another way is good ole Ebay. I have found that Ebay is a great place to find all sorts of wedding supplies at cheap prices. They not only have used wedding gowns but also brand new designer wedding dresses. If you sign up for a Paypal account you cannot get ripped off or I have never been anyway. Check out Ebay and also Paypal and you will be amazed at all the things you can get at incredible prices.

Of course the best way to get a wedding dress at a huge discount is to buy a used one. If you are really tight on your budget this is the route you want to take. Most major cities have clothes consignment shops and they always have some beautiful gowns that they are selling. You may find your entire spring wardrobe there for only a few hundred dollars.

Once you select your dress you will want to get it altered so that it fits you perfectly. In addition prior to buying you want to be sure the dress is not stained and does not have any tears in it.

One thing that you can do with your savings is to beef up the accessories you wear on your wedding day. A nice pair of gloves, more and better wedding jewelry as well as a fantastic veil. These will make your overall appearance spectacular which should be your ultimate goal to begin with.

By shopping around and keeping your standards high you may be able to walk down the aisle on your wedding day wearing a dress that every one thinks is a designer gown. Only you and God need to know how you got it and if you have a flair for style no one will be the wiser.
