Negotiating the Price of Your Wedding Dress

How would you like to knock off more than $200 from your wedding dress’ price tag? I am sure a lot of brides-to-be would be delighted to save money when they finally purchase their wedding gown. What is the secret to getting good deals when purchasing your wedding gown? You need not blow all your money on your gown because there are many places where you can get bargains. You just need to do your research and you need a lot of patience. We will let you in on a little secret.

Shop only within your price range

If you want to avoid the risk of spending more money than you really should, it is a must that you only shop within your price range. This is something that not every bride remembers to do is they o not want to over spend. Avoid temptations and avoid looking at your dresses which cost more than you can afford.


Research is not every bride’s favorite thing to do but it is something which must definitely be done if you want to get the most out of your money. Google is your friend and you should it to your advantage.  Know what you will be able to get for your budget and know where you should look for your dress. You also need to verify your sellers before you spend any amount of money. The last thing you want to happen is to be duped by someone pretending to sell on the internet.

Accept defeat and have a back-up plan

Sometimes things just do not go our way so we just have to accept things, let it go and move on. You should have the same mindset when you are looking for your wedding dress. If you cannot find the dress for your price, you should not settle for anything you do not like. If you have the patience and determination, you will find something nice which is worth buying. Do not worry too much and do not get discouraged.

Be reasonable

Regardless of how much you want a certain gown; you should always be within reason.  You cannot expect to pay only $200 for a dress which is worth well over $2,000. You may not be able to get $500 off a dress but you should be happy to save $200.

Haggle but do not go overboard

It is only natural to haggle and to try to ask for a much better price but you should not go overboard. Screaming and hollering will not make people want to do business with you. If you do want to haggle, you should be at least prepared to justify why you want to spend that amount of money.

Be ready to buy on the spot

If there is a dress which you really like, you should be ready to buy it right on the spot. There are many salons which are more than willing to price match, provided that you are willing to pay it in cash in full at the time of purchase.
