Food for Thought Friday: The " Vera Wang " Wedding dress.

Every bride wants to look gorgeous on her wedding day, even low budget brides. And it is absolutely acceptable to want to look good on a day that is all and just about you.

Wedding dresses are one of those personal items that the bride may spend a fortune on. As much as the 'Vera Wang' dress may seem appealing to the eye, you wouldn't want to try on a dress, only for you to realize that you cannot afford it.

In my opinion, it makes no sense spending so much on a dress you will wear just once. Consider renting your wedding dress. It will still be a designer wedding dress, it won't be new but it will be so much cheaper than getting a new one. A lot of bridal shops deal in rentals now. You may get the so loved 'Vera Wang' dress at a very reasonable discount. By doing this, you would have saved yourself some money which can go into some of the other wedding expenses.

- It's a lot cheaper than a new wedding dress.
- You don't have to worry about washing and storing it after the wedding.
- You still get to feel like a princess.
- No one can tell if it is rented or new (I know how ladies feel about stuff like that).

- It won't be new.
- You may pay extra charges if it gets damaged.

  1. Extraordinary compared to other parts of leasing a wedding dress is that you won't need to stress over what to do with the dress after the service is finished. buy silk sarees online

  2. White wedding dresses aren't the only choice when it comes to modern bridalwear! More and more brides are choosing coloured and patterned wedding gowns to show their individuality and colour-theme their wedding. Choosing a coloured wedding dress can add an extra dimension to your wedding look, and each different colour has different meanings and significances that you might want to take into account when making your decision.
