Deciding On a Dress Budget

The excitement from your engagement is still lingering, and La Reine’s team couldn’t be happier for you! This next big step in your life is exciting yet daunting, and you are just about ready to start planning your wedding day!

Budgeting is an essential part of the part of the planning process, and you’ll want to be sure to leave room for all of the most important aspects of your big day. As a bridal shop just outside of Bristol, we know first-hand just how essential it is to stick to our bride’s price point.

Sitting down with your significant other and deciding on a price you are both comfortable with means taking some of the stress out of your big day. Choose a realistic number that works with both of your must-haves while also being lenient towards the items that you might be able to do without to save a little extra. Once you come up with an overall budget, determining how that budget will be used takes a little extra time.

It first starts with the dollar amount you might be comfortable with spending. Creating a limit for yourself can prevent wasted time trying on dresses outside of your price range or worse, fall in love with a dress you just can’t afford. If there is a number in mind, never be shy to share it with the professionals during your consultation.

Every bride is different, and the importance of the perfect gown can vary. For many, the gown is one of the top priorities for preparation long before the wedding day and budget, and some are willing to spend 20% above their original number if they find the right dress, even without the additional charges for tax and alterations.

Fortunately, there are bridal shops out there who have the selection and expertise you need to get the dress of your dreams. La Reine’s team is skilled at helping our brides choose from our hundreds of options to find a dress they love and fits within that dreaded budget.
