THE FRUGAL BRIDE

  I know that people are getting started or are in the middle of starting plans for their wedding.

I am going to start a series of posts on planning the perfect frugal wedding.

We all know that once the wedding date is set, the search for the perfect wedding dress gets underway.

Today, I want to show some of the truly gorgeous, inexpensive options for you.  The perfect dress is not about the cost. It’s about finding the right dress for you, great tailoring so that it fits you like a glove, and the perfect accessories.

Here are a couple of examples of inexpensive gowns that are so beautiful:

This dresss is from David’s Bridal.com and is only $199.00.

I love the one shouldered look and the draping of this gown.

This comes in sizes 2-16.

Here’s the description:

  • Delicate silver and clear beaded floral embroidery adorn the single shoulder bodice and empirewaist.
  • Full length skirt is accented with a stunning side drape.
  • Chiffon fabric cascades to create a slim silhouette.
  • Fully lined. Invisible size zipper. Imported polyester. Dry clean only.
  • Available in white or ivory.

Here is another one from David’s Bridal that is plus-sized:

This dress sells for $149.99 and comes in sizes 14W to 26W.  I think it looks as good as many designer dresses I’ve seen.

Here’s the description:

A few things to keep in mind when you’re ordering online:

Always read the reviews to see if the dress runs big or small or true to size.

Give yourself plenty of time to send it back if you’re not satisfied (Make certain there is a good return policy on the dress).

Give yourself plenty of time for alterations.
