A wedding dress is more than fluff for the bride and all her friends to fawn over. Every bride wants to look her best for her special day. Dresses, however, can get very pricey when looking through magazines and books for a specific design or detailed gown. A bride on a budget can look into second hand stores or consignment shops and get a great deal. These dresses will range from a little under $100 to $2,000. It all depends on how much detail is in the dress, how much yardage there is to the dress, and whether or not it comes with embellishments.
Having a wedding gown made can get pretty expensive. There are dresses or gowns that will cost well over $9,000. Those dresses are made specifically for the bride by the designer and are ordered straight from the designer. The details of the gown are discussed between the two parties and ultimately a dress fit for the bride on her special day comes about fully put together and beautiful.
Normally, a wedding dress will cost a bride or her parents somewhere between $1,000 and $1,400. This is an average, of course, and will not diminish the beauty of the dress or the bride in any way. Remember, it doesn't have to be expensive to be the right dress. Always take a second look at the dress on the rack. It might just be the perfect one for that momentous and exhilarating day.
