Planning your wedding is one of the most exciting experiences, but it can be no picnic once reality sets in and all the numbers and costs start to add up! While weddings can be incredibly expensive, there are several ways to cut costs without sacrificing your vision and dreams. The wedding dress is undoubtedly one of the most important components on your big day, and trying on one gorgeous dress after another is any girl’s dream come true. What’s not fun? Actually paying for it.
Here at Cocomelody, we’ve strived to give our clients the most reasonable prices without sacrificing quality and style. We definitely understand the significance of being budget savvy and cutting corners when we can, so here are some of our tips on saving on your wedding dress:
Consider lace-up corset wedding dresses. Not only are they beautiful and striking to look at, but they’re also a cost effective way to save money on alterations. Because this style allows you to easily tighten or loosen the laces, it’s a great way to custom-fit your measurements to the bodice. It’s also an ideal style for brides-to-be who are expecting.
Thanks to rapid advances in textile technology, it’s easy to choose an affordable fabric that also feels and looks luxurious. For example, 100% silk fabrics are very expensive, but there are synthetic and silk-polyester blends that feel like the real deal, without the hefty price tag. A great option is to ask if your dream dress can be made in an alternative fabric, so you still get the style you’re after, without the high expenses.
The more intricate beading and embellishment there is on a dress, the higher the price tag will be. Opting for simpler, more minimal styles will significantly lessen the costs. If you really want embellishment, ask if it can be limited to just the front bodice or the skirt. Another option is to choose styles with ruching and pleating; fabric manipulation can really elevate the look of your wedding dress at more affordable price points.
