Save Money and Still Look Good in Your Gown


Weddings are some of the most memorable moments of a person’s life. For those marrying, it’s indeed a more historic day. However, one aspect is usually more important for the bride more than anything else; the bridal gown. In a wedding, it’s usually the masterpiece because its design and beauty add to that of the bride herself making her the center of attention. However, sometimes we have to do weddings on a tight budget. Here are excellent ways to help the process move smoothly.

Money-Saving Tips
The best way to save a lot of money in buying a bridal gown is to borrow one from your family or a friend. Your grandmother will feel honored if you choose to wear her wedding gown. However, some stores offer some of the most elegant gown designs for considerably less than what others are charging. Here, you can find bridal gowns, mother of the bride gowns and even mother of the groom dresses so that you can have a one-stop shop for everything.  
Staying in Style
Saving money on the bridal gown does not mean that you will wear something that is out of style. But how, indeed, will you choose a style? There are many things to consider.
Comfort
You must make sure that you are comfortable in wearing this gown as you stand, dance, kneel, and even run. You don't want to trip over your train or have large beads of sweat running down your face.
Theme
Your bridal gown must reflect the wedding theme. For example, in a beach wedding, you may consider a hi-low gown.
Colors
You can choose colors. Most brides wear white, but some women won't look their best when wearing white. The bride should be the most beautiful woman during her wedding day. She should choose colors that will flatter her best. Consider taupe, beige, cream, and other pastel colors.
Fabric
Choose the right fabric for your bridal gown. If it is a summer wedding, the sheerness and simplicity of chiffon are best. If your wedding involves a lot of dancing, you will enjoy the volume of tulle. If the wedding is extremely formal, consider organza. If informal, satin would be great. If you wanted some stiffness to the outer part of the gown (great for pictures), include taffeta. Lastly, don't forget to buy lace.
Length
You need to decide, early on, the length of the bridal gown. This will significantly reduce the confusion in choosing gowns. Some wedding gowns are street length, which is perfect for sporty and adventurous brides. Some have intermission lengths, which is ideal for informal weddings. Some bridal gowns have hi-low lengths, which is perfect for outdoor weddings. Some gowns are ballet length, which is great for brides who love to dance. And some gowns are floor length, which is required informal weddings.
Train
Together with the length of the gown, you should also choose the train. Sweep trains go well in outdoor weddings. The court train is excellent for an activity-filled wedding reception. The chapel train, which is about four feet long, is expected at formal weddings. And if the wedding is in a church, the bride should choose the eight-foot-long cathedral train.

With these tips, you can get the best available dress to wear on your big day. Not only will you look amazing and stay comfortable, but you'll also do it all without breaking the bank.
