Order your dress online

We recommend online shopping if you want to save money and still look great in your dress as a wedding guest. You will find dozens of websites offering such clothes.

Know what you want

You’ll be surprised by the number of options and styles available to wedding guests looking for unique dresses. All this can be overwhelming and make you lose your focus. The best idea is to know what feature the dress should have. For instance, some ladies want to highlight their arms, so they look for dresses to keep them uncovered. Or maybe you are looking for a dress with a full skirt? By deciding what you want and what suits you the most, you will save some time and find a suitable dress at a reasonable price.

Set a budget

It’s easy to get carried away when you find a beautiful dress. Without a budget, you can quickly pay more than you can afford and regret it later. The best option is to settle on a budget before you start . Setting and sticking to that budget is crucial if you want to save money without sacrificing your appearance.

Borrow your outfit

who’s to say you have to buy your outfit? Why not borrow it instead? You could always raid your friends wardrobe and see what they have you can borrow, and the you can return the favour for them. Alternatively you could try a dress hire company were you can hire dresses, playsuits or separates. This works out much more cost effective and much better for the environment.
