Many women would not dream of cutting corners on her wedding dress. The wedding dress is an important part of any wedding ceremony. If you choose the right shop, you can certainly save hundreds of dollars on wedding gowns.

If you pick up any bridal magazine, you will find hundreds of beautiful designer wedding gowns. These designer wedding gowns are gorgeous, but they are expensive, too. Some designer wedding gowns can costs well into the thousands of dollars. When you think about it, why should you spend so much money on a dress that you will only wear for a few hours? Chances are that dress will be stored in a box or hang in the back of your closet for years to come. While it is important to look your best on your wedding, do you want to start out your married life in debt over for a dress. Take the time to shop around and consider other options when shopping for wedding gowns.

Wholesale Wedding Gowns

One of the easiest ways that you can save money on wedding gowns is to shop for wholesale wedding gowns. Many stores sell designer wedding gowns for as much as 50% off the regular price.

These dresses are just as beautiful as the ones you find in the bridal magazines, but will cost you a fraction of the price. To find these stores, look at local phone book or check online. Some of these stores are only open certain hours, so make sure you check into this before you go. It is a good idea to take along heels similar to the one that you will wear on your wedding day and the right undergarments. This will allow you to try on wedding gowns and get a good idea of the true fit.

Used Wedding Gowns

There are actually different types of used wedding gowns. When you buy a used wedding gown, you can get a dress for as little as $200. Consignment and thrift stores are ideal places to look for used wedding gowns. While you may shudder at the idea of buying your dress at a thrift store, consider this: many of the wedding gowns you will find have only been worn one time. They are donated because they are taking up room in someone's closet. Rather than sell the dress, many people think it is easier to donate it. That is an excellent deal for you. Another type of use wedding gown that you may not know about are display gowns that have been used for display at bridal shows, bridal shops, and even florists. Many of these types of stores display beautiful gowns, and then sell them at rock-bottom prices.
