Weddings are a production. Even the simplest of affairs requires some money to make happen. Cutting corners does not equate to a cheap-ass event. So do it! One major expense-- the gown. We get it. The bride is the center of attention and wants to make that lasting impression. But must you take a second mortgage out on your house? Nope.
Queenly, the leading marketplace and search engine for the formalwear industry, has sometips on how to gown-for-less.
Upcycling your mom’s gown or vintage gowns
Crack Wisedom: Somebody please wear mom's 1980s-era gown-- poofy long sleeves and all! Hell-- make it an 80s-themed wedding!
Thrifting and Buying Gently Worn Gowns
Crack Wise-dom: We say you find a tuxedo t-shirt and match it with the skirt part of a gently-used gown. Or better yet, why aren't there any gown t-shirts? #equality
Opting For Unique Choices
Crack Wise-dom: See our above advice. Why wear white? Wear black. Go themed wedding. Wear a prom dress. We uniquely choose to wear chaps. Assless chaps. and a cute fur shrug...
In conclusion: Save your money and put it towards something that matters. No, not the honeymoon. Open. Bar.
