First of all, it’s important to set your budget. It may seem obvious but by identifying how much your budget allows, you’ll know exactly how much you have to spend, and then you can decide what kind of dress to spend it on. Try not to go for this year’s expensive designer as it will cost a lot, and, there are many beautiful dresses that are easier to afford that’ll make your big day magical. Here are four reasons why buying discounted wedding dresses will make your day more affordable.

1. You can focus on other areas of the wedding

The average price of a wedding is about £21,000 and wedding dresses are generally around £1,000. By investing in budget wedding dresses for less, you’re allowing for more financial freedom and more choice when considering other areas of your wedding, such as catering, venue, and choice of music. Finding the right dress doesn’t need to be stressful – it can instead be completely affordable, leaving one less thing to worry about as you plan the rest of your special day. This way you can focus more on planning and preparing for your honeymoon.  

2. Affordable doesn’t mean tacky.

You will find some incredible dresses for great prices. Why not take a look at last year’s designers, or try on some sample wedding dresses? It’s a great idea to experiment with different dress styles to see which one you like the most. Maybe you’d like a sheath or a mermaid style wedding dress for a more subtle finish, or maybe you’d feel more comfortable in a ball gown style. Whichever you decide, you will find that perfect dress, and you can do so at a reasonable cost.

3. You only wear it once.

Your dress will be worn on your wedding day only, before being put away and kept as a souvenir- so it’s completely reasonable to invest in a more affordable gown. Discounted wedding dresses can be purchased and then stored away, without the feeling of guilt for unnecessary expenditure. You’ll be relaxed in the knowledge that your great dress won’t contribute to financial problems.  

4. Finances after the wedding.

Your wedding will be a very happy and joyous day, but you’ll need to think about finances after the big day. An affordable dress means you won’t have to take the blow of the costs as much and instead you can look forward to life as a newly married couple. The money not spent on your wedding dress could be spent on other, more important things, such as a honeymoon or furnishings for your new home. It’s always important to plan ahead and saving on your wedding dress will help you to do this.

It may be your big day, but it doesn’t need to be a big expense. Choose the perfect affordable dress, and enjoy your celebrations as you start this new chapter of your life.
