Wedding dresses are expensive enough without adding the costs of the alterations, headpiece, veil, shoes and gloves among other things. Don’t be dumbfounded when the bill is an extra $300 to $1000 dollar increase over the dress itself. If you like paying more for those accessories then you are in the wrong place. Here are some ways to keep more paper in your purse.
The cost of your alterations can range from $80 to $600 dollars. That’s right, $600!. (Whew..Some wedding dresses cost less than that themselves!) One way to save money is hire a seamstress that does not work in a boutique. They are usually a little less expensive. Can’t find one? Ask members of the place you worship or ask other wedding vendors like the ceremony site staff if they know any local independent tailors.
Headpiece and Veil
Make it yourself. Just make sure it won’t come apart during the wedding ceremony and you’ll be fine. Some bridal shops actually will give you a free or reduced cost veil or headpiece with the purchase of your wedding dress.
Don’t splurge on this one. Just make sure they are comfortable so you’ll have a pleasant look on your face when your pictures are taken! If you can find one at a regular department store, you could save a few pennies.
