When I got married (almost 10 years ago) I didn't go to a wedding boutique to buy a dress. My Mother actually helped my buy one online and by doing so, we saved a ton of money! It's tradition for most brides to be, to quickly make an appointment to dry on dresses at the local wedding shop. There are other affordable, and less headache inducing, ways to purchase a beautiful dress for your special day. This wedding outfit below, can all be purchased for under $400, and that includes the bouquet! Brooch bouquets are beautiful and stunning alternatives to a real floral display. Another plus, it will last for years after your wedding. You could even pass it down to your daughter, or future daughter-in-law to use as well.
