Nowadays, the cost of owning your own formal dress can be a bit out of budget. Since you may not look so great without some fancy ring, an eye catching necklace and some shoes to match the dress, a wise shopping is definitely advised.
If you have little money to spend on a dress, you can still achieve the look and the feel as if you’ve been a princess in a fairytale. Here are five simple steps that will help you achieve that look without spending that much money.
1.) Do your shopping early!
If you prolong the time to buy a new dress you may not have the enough time to buy it. The longer you have for searching, the more dresses you can try and match with your accessories. As you buy early you can find a formal that goes with the accessories that you already have at home, so there’s no need to spend on new accessories.
2.) Consider buying a 2nd hand gown
Try to ask from your friends or relatives if they have a formal dress that could borrow it. If they agree all you need to pay is for having it dry cleaned. If given permission you may modify the dress to fit what your figure; you may even alter it to fit you properly.
3.) Make some modification
If you’ve bought a dress or borrowed from a friend, sometimes you find out that it doesn’t quite fit you. You can always do a modification that can suit you. If you find a dress that you like but it may not fit you, get a size much bigger. You can then, alter the size to fit you.
4.) Visit budget friendly stores
Budget friendly stores have a wide variety of dresses and they come with a cheap price. Don’t hesitate to buy. Don’t forget you can always have them modified to fit your like.
5.) Construct your own dress
Even if you couldn’t imagine nor sew your own dress, find someone who does. It’s not only cost efficient but you can have the originality and uniqueness that will be the envy of everyone at the event.
