1. Buy wedding dresses on line. On line retailers often have a selection of wedding dresses in wide variety of colors and fabrics. Purchasing dresses on line can be much cheaper than buying them at a bridal shop.
2. Remake an old dress. If you have a nice dress that you bought for an event that is just hanging in your closet gathering dust, remake it into a beautiful wedding dress. There is no need for it to even be white, you can add white tulle to the underside if you want to have color showing.
3. Sew your own. This option is only for those women who either know how to sew or know someone who knows how to sew. There are beautiful patterns in the fabric store to choose from. Spending money only on material, patterns and trim is another way to get a cheap wedding dress.
4. Purchase wedding dresses at thrift stores and consignment stores. Some thrift stores receive merchandise from high-end stores. Others get gowns and other higher-priced items when someone moves or passes away.
