Alternative Places To Find Your Perfect Wedding Dress

Wedding
dress shopping can be exhausting. Especially if you are looking for a unique
dress and at an affordable price. And although right now it not actually a
wedding season, I would like to talk a little bit about the alternative ways
how to get a perfect wedding dress. In fact, maybe right now is the best time
to shop for it! Shopping at bridal salons is surely very special, but prices
there are pretty high. And if you are a frugal bride – you will do everything
that it takes to find a cheaper alternative. Am I right? So if you want to know
about all these alternative ways – this article is going to help you a
lot!

Thrift stores

Thrift
stores are fun to visit, and fun to shop at. Everything there is cheap and
unique. At thrift stores, you can find some real treasures! And not only
looking for a wedding dress but for décor elements or cute vintage accessories
you can use for the wedding as well. So gather your bridesmaids and visit your
local thrift stores. I can bet you will find something good – maybe not to
wear, but to use something at your wedding as an accent piece.

Buy used

You
can also win a lot if you buy yourself a slightly used wedding dress. That
dress probably is still in an excellent condition, but it was worn once and
this is what makes it cost a lot less. Moreover, you can find a unique and
different style this way as well. And you can either look for it online (there
are a few websites that have these slightly used wedding dresses) or at
second-hand stores. There are many great dresses you can afford without a
problem. I bet it can be a deal of the century!

Shop for it at simple clothing store

As
mentioned, bridal stores are fun to visit, but dresses there cost tons of
money. But, in fact, if you look for an alternative place where to get a dress
for your big day, that store you visit almost every day can be the one! You can
find some great looking long white dresses at local supermarkets. Despite the
fact that those dresses are not exactly wedding dresses, but they are
still white and gorgeous. So why not give it a try? It certainly costs a lot
less, and you are going to look amazing with it.

Also,
there are some other ways how you can make those cheap dresses even less
expensive! As I said before, even at general clothing stores you can find
something great. So, keeping that in mind, I found these Neiman Marcus
online coupons at ChameleonJohn.com.
With these coupons, you can make those prices get even smaller! So – a single
department store in your town can be a perfect place to find your dress.

Give a chance to a rising star bridal designer

If
you want to have a unique and cheap dress, an aspiring bridal designer can
be perfect. I bet these designers will do their best work for you because they
can spend a lot of time on a dress (preferably at yours) trying to make the
best possible version of it. And you can always make alterations to it as much
as you want. So if you are not afraid of a little bit of risk, find an aspiring
bridal designer and give him some work. It might turn out to be a surprisingly
unique and definitely one of a kind dress at a pretty small price. At the end
of the day, your dress can be a big step up for designer’s career as
well.

Wear your mother’s, grandmother’s or someone else’s wedding dress

Some
wedding dresses are classic and ahead of time. And who knows, maybe your mom
has one of these dresses! You will honour your mom or grandmother is you wear
her wedding dress for your special day, and I can bet that dress is a work of
art too. So that will be unique for sure. Also, don’t be afraid to do
alternation to that dress. That will make it truly yours. That way you can walk
down the aisle in the dress that is not only a dress – that is a family relic.

    Some fab ideas. I had mine made for me, it was essentially two dresses put together as one because I liked different aspects of each dress x
