Three Places For Buying Budget Wedding Dresses: Find out where three of the biggest key spots to scout for budget wedding dresses are, and learn what you should expect in terms of stock, sizing, variety, and more.Here’s some places to definitely check out—
Last Call Neiman Marcus. LC Neiman Marcus often carries a selection of gowns from major designers like Vera Wang, Reem Acra, etc. for a fraction of the cost. A friend got a Vera Wang wedding dress for $450. Now to find these dresses you have to hunt a bit—but they’re usually located in or near the women’s fitting rooms.
Filene’s Basement. They have an annual bridal gown sale that is one of the most hotly anticipated wedding-related events of the shopping season. You’ll find deals from major bridal designers (although most things are a size 10 and below). Head to http://www.filenesbasement.com for locations and dates for the event.
eBay. I know it sounds crazy, but you can find great high end wedding dresses online at eBay.com. Just do a search for Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, etc and see what comes up. Many are brand and are being sold by women who weren’t able to use them for some reason (left at the altar?).
