Affordable Wedding Dresses

"What is the price point you would like us to respect?" is the scariest question a bridal shop can ask you. Versailles Atelier understands that, and we will always respect your wishes. We will only pull dresses over your price point if you insist on going over. 

As a family-run business, we understand where this money is coming from and do not want to blow your budget. However, a wedding dress can also be an expensive item on your wedding budget. Many brides want a high-quality dress but assume it comes with a hefty price tag. 

In this post, we’ll discuss how to find high-quality but affordable wedding dresses. We’ll also shed light on the amount of time, effort, and resources that go into creating a wedding dress.

Ethically Sourced Wedding Dresses At An Affordable Price

Firstly, it’s essential to understand that a wedding dress involves a great deal of hard work. Design, sourcing materials, and pattern creation can take around 80 hours. Once the pattern is finalized, it can take up to three full days to bring the dress to life, including sewing the dress and placing appliques. A significant amount of time and effort goes into creating every wedding dress.

When it comes to pricing, it’s worth paying attention to the labor costs. Our team at Versailles is dedicated to sourcing materials from ethical designers, which means we incur higher labor costs than online sellers who prioritize finding the cheapest wedding dresses. Once the dress is made, shipping fees and trade tariffs come into play, followed by the cost of running a store and providing the experience our customers deserve.

However, underscoring this, we understand that “affordable” means different things to different people. Our collection of wedding dresses starts at around $1,200 and goes up from there. The majority of our dresses will range between $1,500 and $3,500. We believe that each bride deserves a dress that makes her feel beautiful without having to overspend.

Secondly, it’s also important to look at the fabric quality and design that a wedding dress offers. Some brides may assume that a more expensive dress is equivalent to a better-quality wedding dress, but that’s not always the case.

Thinking out of the box is crucial to finding high-quality but affordable wedding dresses. Consider visiting boutiques and designers that offer discounts on their wedding dress collections. Check for trunk shows and events, sample sales, and flashes can also be fruitful for finding affordable wedding dresses. 

You can also consider buying a pre-loved dress or renting a wedding dress. These options save you money and give you an opportunity to wear an exquisite designer wedding dress.

Another great tip is to consider separates instead of going for a complete wedding dress. Skirts and tops work to create a beautiful wedding silhouette and cost less than dresses. Plus, you get to reuse the outfit after the wedding!

Affordable Bridal Gowns to Complete Your Wedding Vision

A wedding dress can be an expensive item on your wedding budget, but it doesn’t have to be. Finding a high-quality, affordable wedding dress is possible, and it starts with having the right information. Don't prioritize labeling a dress with a cheaper price tag, but consider the quality, design, and fabric when making your purchase decision.

Additionally, keep an open mind while exploring the variety of options available to you. By understanding the effort, time, and costs that go into creating each wedding dress, you can appreciate the value of investing in a wedding dress that makes you feel fabulous on your big day.
