The love bug must be in the air, because over the past several weeks I have talked to quite a few people who are planning their weddings, and looking for ways to save.  Honestly, I don’t blame them, a wedding can cost as much as a brand new car or more if you’re not careful.  Yikes!   Seriously, if my daughter told me that her wedding dress was going to cost $5,000, I think I would have a heart attack.  🙂   So, thank goodness, with a little imagination, determination, and reality about your budget, it’s possible to have the perfect day to say, “I do” to the one you love, and I have to start with the DRESSES!      

The Wedding Dresses

The wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and mother of bride dress, are probably the first thing that most ladies start to look for, and once you get in the store be prepared for some serious sticker shock.  Now, after you get over your heart palpitations, start to look at what style of dresses your drawn to, try them on, and ask as many questions as you can about the design elements of the dresses.  

Is it a mermaid, A-line, princess, or empire waist fit?  

What kind of neckline looks the best on you: sweetheart, v-neck, one shoulder, or possibly strapless?  

Do you like lace, satin, chiffon, or tulle?  

And most importantly, what type of style best represents you:  

Vintage, princess, modern, classic, or maybe your just a beach loving babe and want something fluttery & free.  

Write all of these details down, including accurate measurements, so that you can now look online, and SAVE some serious money!!

Here are some different places that I have shopped at online, and have bought for different events, including dances that my daughter has attended and saved some serious cash.

 

 

Amazon Wedding Styles

I am a huge Amazon fan, and yes, it may take some time to find the right dress, but if you have written down all of the details that are important to you, you can find some Ah-mazing deals at this wonderful online store. I have personally found some dresses, tops, and pants in all kinds of sizes for my daughter & myself.  The best part is, that at these deeply discounted prices, you can buy several dresses in all kinds of sizes, (including plus), and if you don’t like them, send them back.  Just make sure that you are paying attention to the ratings and comments of other buyers, and remember that you can get your dress altered for that custom fit.           

 

Super Saving Tip:  Get Amazon Prime and save a ton of money on shipping on your entire wedding day items!   2-Day Free Shipping!!!!!    

 

    

 

 

eBay Wedding Dresses

 

Don’t forget about E-Bay!  What I love about E-Bay is that it’s full of wonderful sellers, who want you to buy from them.  You can get a designer dress, that’s slightly used or new for a fraction of the cost.  Plus, you can ask questions, and there are usually tons of pictures to look at before you buy.

I can’t say enough about how much I love being a part of the Craftsy community, and when it comes to saving money a little DIY goes a long way.  Here is an online class called:

I would also suggest that you browse on Pinterest and see what other types of savings you can find.  It’s one of my all time favorite places to be, so let’s connect here:  SuperGirlSavings on Pinterest.  Let me know you found me and I will follow you as well.  🙂  I hope that some of these money-saving ways to save, give you a little encouragement that you can still find your dream wedding dresses without breaking the budget.

Not everyone wants to wear a traditional white wedding dress, and I love the romantic, flowing, majestic details of this Spanish style masterpiece.  It’s available at a super price for only $130, and it would also make a flattering bridesmaids dress as well.

These sandals are a perfect paring to the Spanish style dress above.  I love how they wrap around the calves, and are flat for stability.  Only $24.99

 

Love You Ivory Day Dress

 

 

Love You Ivory Day Dress

 

 

There is several reasons why I picked this classic, satin, sassy dress above.  It is flattering on all shapes & sizes, (XS-4X) it has a full skirt which will cover the hips and thighs nicely, and has plenty of coverage and support in the chest area.  I love the short sleeves for all of those ladies who want their arms covered up a bit.  This vintage dress can stand alone on its own, or you could add some glam with a bright-colored ribbon or glittered belt.  Head over to Modcloth and see what other ladies looked like in this exact dress on their wedding day. $90.00

 

Wine and Divine Dress in Midnight

Dream Evening Dress in Carnation

I have been a bridesmaid in a wedding, and I know how difficult it is to find a dress that will look good on all the different shapes and sizes of the bridal party.  The above Dream dress comes in a beautiful carnation color, its romantic, and would be comfortable.  It comes in sizes XS-4X, with lots of coverage in all areas of the body, and is priced at only $125.  

Every bride wants to stand out on their wedding day, and that’s why I love the unique wedding styles that are available at Modcloth.  It’s almost like shopping at an exclusive boutique, that takes into consideration that ladies come in different sizes, shapes, and have different personality traits.  So, head over there now and get inspired!
