How you dress makes an impact on people, especially on your wedding day. All eyes will be on you and for that, you want to look your best. It’s amazing how one style of dress can determine your personality just like that. For example, we tend to think that brides who are wearing big ball-gowns are princess-type and those who wear simple strapless mermaid style are the conservative ones. I’ve seen so many brides look so different on their wedding day, some look really beautiful, others don’t look good at all. Finding the right dress that matches your personality can be quite a challenge, especially when it comes to the price tag.
I have 2 good friends who are getting married this month and when I met them last time, they were complaining about how expensive their wedding cost were, especially when it comes to dressing up the bride and groom. I’m not surprised because wedding dresses and tuxedos can be very expensive indeed — but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the dress of your dreams because there’s always a solution to every problem, right? Here are 3 smart ways to solve that!
Rent, Don’t Buy
There are many services that let you rent dresses online, and other clothing and accessories as well. They are excellent opportunities to wear designer clothing without having to break your budget. The rental service still does cost money, so you will still need to be careful depending on your budget. However, it allows for a great way to save money but still be the fashionista to which you aspire.
Wait for Sales
Another way to save money on clothing is to wait for sales, or even just shop the clearance rack. These are typically last season’s style and are very hit or miss, but you can often find something that you like at a significant discount. You can even find designer dresses for up to 80% off. If you shop online, you can usually find even more sales. You can search for special offers and deals. Many times, if you sign up for emails or Facebook feeds, you can get offers to save money.
Flash and Warehouse Sales
Another way to save on designer dresses is look for flash and warehouse sales. These are quick sales where stores are getting rid of their excess stock to prepare for the new line. If you catch these, you can often pay very little money for great clothing. Physical warehouse and flash sales tend to only be in cities where the designers are located, like New York and Los Angeles. However, the internet offers many companies that offer flash sales for a variety of designers.
So, there you have it. 3 ways to get the dress of your dreams without hurting your budget! Good luck, ladies : )
