The first place most of us think of when shopping for a wedding gown is the local corner bridal store or David’s Bridal (Sidenote: Save $50 on select David’s Bridal exclusive bridal gown styles here). We are, however, in the age of Web 2.0 (maybe even 3.0 by now 😉 ), when everything is bigger and better online, including wedding gown selection at a steeply discounted prices. “But they are used,” you may protest. To which I reply, “Mostly, no.” This surprising source for discount wedding gowns–both new and used–is eBay. As I write this, there are exactly 119, 686 wedding gowns […]

Whether you are a bride-to-be, parent, or guest, today’s tough economic news is likely to have you worried — gas prices over $4.00 a gallon and climbing, mortgage industry gloom and doom, increasing unemployment, and generally higher prices.

Mainstream retailers such as Kohls or Target, for example, not only have bridal registries and carry items appropriate for gift-giving, but carry some wedding supplies as well. As an […]

As I mentioned yesterday, used wedding dresses are a great source for a cheap wedding dress. Another idea for saving money is to purchase new gowns made to resemble designer dresses. In general, you order the gown based on a photo of an existing dress. A seamstress, usually in an Asian country, then recreates the general look of the pictured gown — often for less than $100. I’ve read both positive and negative critiques of this approach to purchasing a wedding gown. Whether these dresses are right for you depends on your own priorities: If you expect the same quality […]
Many of you on a tight budget (which is probably shrinking as gas prices rise and keep rising) are likely considering looking at used wedding dresses. If you leave your options open and allow plenty of time for used dress shopping, you can save several hundred dollars. Before looking at used gowns, first decide what features you want your wedding dress to have and research the various designer’s styles so you know which brands tend to have “your look.” Also, figure out “your” size in each of your preferred designers’ gowns. Just like everyday womens clothing, sizes vary. There are […]
