Buying a wedding dress is a completely different story when compared to buying everyday clothing. This is the one dress you’ll be wearing once, and only once, on the day you meet your Prince Charming at the altar, which means that, either way, you will be spending a pretty penny!
Because wedding dress prices vary so much, you may find that the one you fall in love with costs a little more than you budgeted for, which will take some of the joy out of the journey as you hand it back to be hung on the rack again.
What you need is a bridal wear store and a team that take your budget seriously and won’t steer you towards dresses out of your price range, thereby saving you a little heartache you really don’t need on this journey.
This is where the team at Ever After Bridal Wear come in. They are totally committed to helping you find your happy spot in terms of your budget and helping you make your dreams of looking like a princess come true!
What are the things that contribute most to the cost of a wedding dress?
If you’re going in for a lot of detail with additions such as beading and high-end fabrics like silk, the labour and material will definitely cost more than something a little simpler.
As an example, if you’ve set your heart on wearing a ball gown, it’s going to cost a lot more than a simpler sheath or mermaid wedding dress.
Other costs to plan for:
There are some alterations that won’t break the budget, but there are those that could, however, with the help of this awesome team, you’ll have a good idea of what you’ll be looking at in terms alterations you may want.
Shoes, veils, jewelry, hair accessories and lingerie need to be factored in as part of the overall cost of looking like a princess on your wedding day.
