10 Biggest Wedding Money Wasters


6. The wedding attire

According to a recently published survey, half of all brides are uncomfortable spending more than $800 on their wedding dress. Yet, the average wedding dress costs around $1,100. It’s very easy to buy into the glamour-filled messages that the wedding industry sends out and to spend far more than you are comfortable with. But I think that wedding attire is an expense item you have plenty of opportunities to save some money on!

Nothing will happen if you will buy your out-off-rack wedding dress in a budget-friendly department store or an outlet. If you feel good about once-worn or vintage dresses you can ask your mom for her gown. This way you will get free attire and you honor your mom as well. Other cost-conscious variants include a rented gown or a dress bought at the online auction.
