Let’s talk about wedding dress budgets. It’s that topic that’s a little sensitive… some brides have oodles of cash for their dress, while others are looking for a more affordable option. This may be for many reasons – whether that’s trying to keep the total cost of the wedding down, or perhaps choosing to invest more money in that amazing photographer. Whatever your reason, there are plenty of truly beautiful wedding dresses under £1000.
Tips For Choosing Wedding Dresses Under £1000
There are a number of things to be aware of when dress shopping to help keep the overall cost down without sacrificing quality. A few top tips include:
- Choose a dress with less beading/intricate detail. All that fine beading work must be hand-beaded, which means time, which of course equals more cost. Perhaps choose a sparkly beaded belt to jazz up a simpler dress.
- If you’re looking for a lace dress, consider limiting the lace to the bodice only. Lace is expensive, much more expensive than satin or chiffon. Therefore a full lace dress can add to the cost considerably, and a beautiful lace bodice can have just as much impact.
- Consider how long you really need your train to be – a longer train means more fabric means higher price. This is particularly the case for lace as lace is expensive (see above).
Looking for wedding dresses under £1000 doesn’t mean looking for a cheap wedding dress as we explain here. By following the advice above, you can really keep the cost of your wedding dress down without sacrificing on quality.
