Much like people, budgets come in all shapes and sizes — and my wedding budget is, in the grand scheme of weddings, small. But as we have discussed time and time again on this blog, budgets don’t limit style, they simply increase creativity! Step one is always to shop the sales, and David’s Bridal is having one you need to know about.
Now through March 3, David’s Bridal is taking $50 to $200 off tons of its bridal gowns — annnnddd, those who buy a dress in a store receive a free veil. F-R-E-E. Online shopping is convenient, but it can’t compete with a freebie. Add that veil to the aforementioned discount and it’s… it’s… double deal madness. Despite the opinions expressed on some very popular TV shows, fashion-forward bridal dresses can be affordable. Now that’s a word you don’t hear too often in reference to weddings.
The sale includes a variety of price points — including a few long options for less than $100! — but I’d say the under $700 is kind of the sweet spot. It’s a doable splurge without breaking the bank, and the finished pieces are worth well more than the cost. See some of my top picks from David’s Bridal below.
