    2. The Gown
      1. Department Stores
      2. White Dresses that Aren’t Titled as Wedding Gowns
        1. Embellish a white dress with accessories such as a rhinestone belt, tulle, sequins, or a ribbon.
      3. Watch for Big Sales
        1. Black Friday
        2. End of Wedding Season – Many dresses are heavily discounted at the end of the typical wedding season.
      4. Previously Owned
        1. Recent brides often sell their just worn dress for significantly less than store cost.

There are SO many ways to cut wedding costs. Be careful to not buy things that you don’t necessarily need, such as customized napkins, huge floral centerpieces, or expensive guest gifts. Most businesses will negotiate cost with you because they want your business. Don’t forget the most important part of this all, ENJOY IT! 😊
