What need to be the characteristics of a wedding gown in order for the gown to be inexpensive? First of all, it has to be designed by an unknown manufacturer. Do not think that a person who is not famous yet is not capable of creating beautiful dresses; perhaps we are talking about a recently graduated fashion designer, that needs to earn the appreciation of those for which he/she creates clothes. So do not let the name of a certain designer stop you from purchasing a dress. If you like the dress, go for it!
Another thing that has to be taken into account is to purchase the dress from a local seller. Even if you may like a dress that you find online, and that is sold by a company 5000 miles away from your location, do not think of buying a dress like that, because you will end up paying more on the transport of that dress from the seller’s location to your own.
Also, think of buying a dress that is simple, not embellished by Swarovski crystals or lace. In some cases, embellishments of a dress cost more than the dress itself, especially if those enhancements are handmade.
And this takes us to another aspect that has to be considered: not purchasing a handmade dress. Consider buying a dress like many others existing on the market, and try to personalize it with your own style, by adding a ribbon, a flower, by combining it with a pair of unusual shoes and so on. Do not think that you will purchase a dress that 1000 other brides have selected as well, because if you know how to combine it with your accessories, you will manage to create a unique appearance, and this is what counts most at the end: the final result.
When searching for the perfect wedding dress, you may encounter all sorts of situations like these ones:
- you find what it seems to be the perfect color of your wedding dress, only that the dress does not have the perfect train;
- the dress does not have the desired length;
- it is not made by the fashion designer that you want;
- it is available, only that your size will reach the store from where you want to buy it two weeks after your wedding day;
- you like it, but your mother doesn't;
- it is colored and the priest tells you that the most appropriate wedding gown for a 21-year-old girl should be white;
- you simply cannot find matching accessories for it;
- and many other reasons.
Because of this, in some cases it is best to try to make your wedding dress at a tailor, or if you are talented, to create it yourself. The first thing that you have to do, either you will address a tailor or you will make the dress without any help whatsoever, is to buy the fabric from which the dress will be made. Buy plenty of material, because if you buy too much, there is no problem; problems could appear if you buy too few. Then, start searching for specialized tailors and present them with your idea of wedding gown. Or if you believe that you are talented and up for this task, start creating the dress yourself, based on indications and wedding gown models that you can find online and in various books.
Selecting a tailor can be more time-consuming, because you will have to be present at his/her house, when he/she calls you, not when you want to go there, so be prepared to pay a higher amount of money to that tailor, in order for him/her to deal only with your gown and to be available to receive you at any time, including at night. Brides can become very anxious, especially when it is about their gown, so a tailor that will create a wedding gown for a bride-to-be needs to be prepared for anything, including to receive the bride for trying the dress on in the middle of the night.
A bride searching for wedding dresses needs to take into account several pieces of advice, in order to find the most appropriate wedding dress for her in a short amount of time, and without spending too much on it.
1. The Internet
Probably the best way to start searching for a wedding gown is to check the online environment. This doesn't mean that you will buy the first dress that you will see online, or that you will ever purchase a dress using this method. But it does mean that you can get inspired by all the models and creations that you can see online.
After checking online stores, it is time to go and see for yourself those dresses that you had previously seen online. Or if you have entered only foreign websites, that do not have branches in your country, you can at least visit the stores you have in your region, and where you can find wedding dresses, to make a comparison between what you can find in other countries, and what you can purchase in your own country.
If you cannot find an appropriate dress in those stores that you have in your neighborhood or town/city, address a tailor that will create the wedding gown that you have in mind, or that you have seen online.
4. Bridal fairs
Do not forget about bridal fairs, because they offer plenty of options to those brides looking for wedding dresses, floral bouquets, accessories, shoes, jewelry, bags and many others.
5. Wedding planner
This is the best thing to do, if you are in a hurry and cannot afford to spend precious time searching for a wedding gown. Instead, your wedding planner will do this for you, after having a discussion with you related to the color that you would love your dress to have, its length, preferred designer and style.
You don't have to pay $10,000 on a dress just to look amazing. You can buy a simple dress, that is $200 or less, and you can also look fantastic. Brides have to understand that not their dresses or accessories count, but their attitude. So learn how to be amazing by developing a certain style, that is unique to you and very appreciated by others.
In this article, we want to discuss several simple bridal gowns, that can be bought for extremely low prices, some of them for less than $200. Obviously, the dresses that we will recommend are not made by famous fashion designers, but by usual companies, that create among others, wedding dresses as well. If you like one of these ideas, you can use it for a potential wedding gown that will be made by your tailor.
We begin by talking about a strapless gown made from tulle and soft lace. The dress that we recommend has an A-line design, presents 3D flower petals and features a tulle overlay. The new trend in wedding dresses these days is the re-embroidered lace, that has to be made from the same material as the flower petals named earlier. And if to all these you add a chapel length train and a scalloped hemline, you will obtain an amazing dress. There has to be mentioned that the softly curved neckline, which is adorned with tulle and lace, as we have said, can be enhanced by some detachable spaghetti straps, if the bride does not want to wear her gown without straps. In case she uses the strapless version, it is mandatory for her to also use a lovely necklace, that will increase the value of such wedding attire.
The next dress that we recommend is again a pear-shaped dress, that has an A-line design and that is made from a tulle overlay, that adds depth to a luxurious lace skirt. We have not mentioned the color of the previous dress, but this depends very much on the preferences of every bride. Of course, it would be lovely to see both these gowns in white, but combinations of colors (such as yellow and blue, pale green and dark green, black and white) are also elegant and appropriate for a wedding gown. Just like the previous dress too, this soft wedding dress should be also enhanced by the use of some jewelry, like a necklace and several bracelets.
A wedding dress is a big problem not only for the bride, but also for the ladies going to a wedding. If they are invited to a family reunion, they cannot wear the same dress they have worn the last time they had a family reunion (like a wedding or other ceremony); if they are invited to the wedding of one of their friends, they cannot wear the dress they have worn when that friend threw a housewarming party and this could go on and on. The point is that even if a woman would have 1000 dresses, she would still need one more, to amaze everyone at the next event where she has to go.
So if you are in need for some special wedding dresses, check out the options we have for you.
