18 Brides Who Proved That Wedding Dresses Don’t Have to Be Expensive in Order to Be Impressive

year ago

The average cost of a standard wedding dress was about $1,800 in 2021. There are many factors of course that can make this price go up or down, but generally brides do buy their own unique designs. However, there are some women who choose to look for cheaper and more alternative choices that won’t cost them as much. That’s why they decide to visit thrift stores or alter older family dresses or even make their unique dress.
