Like wedding gowns, prom dresses run at least one size smaller so pick dresses a size larger and you’ll get a perfect fit. Also, if shopping online, many websites have a measurement guide for the wedding party they sell. By following these carefully, you can be sure it’ll fit perfectly.
Prepare early. Unless you are perfectly proportioned or very lucky, it is virtually impossible to buy a wedding gown off the rack in one day. Alterations to a ready-made gown takes at least a month to finish, and it’s even longer if you have your gown custom made (give it three to four months). This is why experts advise future brides to shop for the gown five to six months before the wedding. This will give you the chance to try on different designs and find one you are most comfortable with.
Another great option is to purchase your bridal gown from a trunk show. You will be able to get a designer wedding dress that is priced quite reasonably there. But only a limited number of wedding dresses are available at a trunk show. So if you find a style that fits perfectly and you are able to pay at the show, do not hesitate to buy it and you can save 80-90% of the original price.
There are actually different types of used wedding gowns. When you buy a used wedding gown, you can get a dress for as little as $200. Consignment and thrift stores are ideal places to look for used wedding gowns. While you may shudder at the idea of buying your dress at a thrift store, consider this: many of the wedding gowns you will find have only been worn one time. They are donated because they are taking up room in someone’s closet. Rather than sell the dress, many people think it is easier to donate it. That is an excellent deal for you. Another type of use wedding gown that you may not know about are display gowns that have been used for display at bridal shows, bridal shops, and even florists. Many of these types of stores display beautiful gowns, and then sell them at rock-bottom prices.
