Getting your bridesmaids dressed up nicely is a priority, and so is the desire to save on these important items. Gal Bridal explains what it takes to strike this delicate balance.
Look Out for Discounts and Deals
Ask around from your friends and relatives or from the vendors themselves if they have any discounts that you might be interested in. when looking for discounts, the earlier you start looking for them, the better your chances of getting one are. Most vendors will have discounts during certain holidays so start your wedding planning early and look out for these.
Consider rental bridesmaid dresses
If you want specific bridesmaid dresses but cannot afford to buy them outright, you may want to consider renting them for just the day and then return them. Keep in mind that not all vendors offer rental services but those who do will give you the best dresses possible.
Don’t go for fancy dresses
As much as you would like your bridesmaids to look stunning during your special day, this is never a license to go for dresses that will cost you a fortune. This does not mean that you settle for dresses your bridesmaids will hate, you can still get cute dresses that look good without spending a fortune.
Buy them in bulk
Use the number of dresses you intend to order as a bargaining chip. Most vendors will be willing to give you discounted prices depending on how many dresses you are buying. The more you buy, the lower the price will go.
Let the bridesmaids choose their own dresses
If you want to save a ton of cash on bridesmaid dresses, you can have them choose their own dresses. All you have to do is give them the color range you will want at your wedding and let them choose the dresses they want.
You should only do this if you will not be bothered with having different dress types at your wedding. If this bothers you so much, you can narrow down the list for them by giving them the material you prefer.
