Unless you are one of the lucky brides that can afford the dream wedding you’ve always hoped for, you are probably on a very strict budget. Cake, wedding invitations, catering, photographer, and of course…THE DRESS! If having a one-of-a-kind wedding dress doesn’t really fall into your “must have” category, then you might want to consider renting or buying used.
Designer Wedding dress
There are many reasons not to purchase a brand new wedding dress, other than it being more cost-effective. If you rent, you won’t have to worry about caring for the dress for years to come, taking it with you each time you move, or worry about it taking up space in your storage. Even if you buy used, you can always sell it after your big day.
