In honer of so many brides finding beautiful dresses for such good prices, i though I’d start a thread for bees on a budget looking for insperation on low cost dress options with high style! After Alterations, and undergarments the cost of a dress can quickly rise!! Lets see all your dresses, the price, and where you bought it!

Mine was right at $500 after tax, but thankfully I don’t need a veil (gifted from a friend), special undergarments (too low-backed), or a crinoline. So really, I’ll only have the alterations to pay for on top of the price, and the train snaps on and off, so no alterations for a bustle. It had been about $900, but I haggled them down to half off because it had JUST been discontinued so I bought their sample. Woohoo!

Here is my find was already on sale for $699. Sales person brought it down to $499 before tax. So $528 with tax….But, here is the Kicker the shop threw in my Bridal Jewelry for FREE!!!!!… So yes a great deal..Alterations are need in the bust area to tighten it and to hem the front only 5’2.

My mom bought my dress off a friend for way under $100. Just because she thought it was such a great deal & not knowing weather I would actually wear it or not. No way did I pass it up!! I loved it. 🙂
