Affordable doesn’t have to mean sacrifice, and at True Society, we have a wide variety of budget-friendly bridal gown styles that can be your dream dress. We believe that just because it’s your special day doesn’t mean you have to break the bank looking fabulous — whether you’re going for a romantic wedding dress, a bohemian bridal style or something in between, we promise that no one will be able to take their eyes off you on your wedding day with one of our more affordable styles. 

How to Buy a Designer Wedding Dress Without Breaking the Bank? 

A great way to save money is to opt for more streamlined bridal gown styles without extensive embellishments. Don’t worry; simpler doesn’t mean boring— minimalist is so on-trend right now and you can easily elevate a simple wedding dress with statement-making accessories. 

To save additional money on your wedding dress budget, buy a gown that’s somewhat true to size. If you’re looking at samples, buy a gown that fits you as closely as possible, or at least find one that is within two sizes of a perfect fit. While bigger dresses can be taken in, and smaller dresses may have room for alteration, too much of a difference can significantly escalate alteration costs and can also impact the integrity of the design.
