How to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

How to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

Weddings can be expensive, but your gown doesn’t have to be. At VOWS, we’re  experts at helping you find the perfect designer dress at a price that won’t burst your budget. How do we do this? With 1000+ dresses in stock and plenty of new gowns arriving weekly, VOWS has the largest collection of discounted designer wedding gowns in the country. This volume allows us to offer you inexpensive wedding dresses from designers. 

Our collection includes gowns by Vera Wang, Amsale, Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham, Oscar de la Renta, and many, many more. We purchase samples and overstocks from designers, retailers, and manufacturers around the world. We’re confident that we have the designer gown of your dreams. And we offer many easy ways to help you find it.

Schedule an appointment: A visit to our bridal shop will let you wander through our large selection of gowns. You’ll be amazed by all the choices in a wide range of styles and prices. We also provide you with a bridal consultant to help guide you through the selection process—and make valuable suggestions when appropriate. Our experienced staff is there to make the whole process easier and more enjoyable. Schedule an appointment today

Shop online: If you can’t visit our shop, you can also purchase your dress online. We’ll ship it to your directly. Send us your measurements and we’ll send you the approximate size. We do offer a full refund of the gown cost (less shipping costs) if it’s not a perfect match. Shop online today.

Use our gown finder services: We offer two services, creatively called Lust and Love. Lust is great for brides who have a year to plan ahead. Typically brides who utilize this service save 40 to 70 percent on their dress. Love is for the bride who wants a very particular dress retailing for $2000 or more.  We guarantee a minimum of 30 percent off these gowns. Visit our gown finder service. 

Attend one of our samples and trunk shows: We offer special gown events throughout the year. Representatives from specific designers visit our shop and bring “trunk loads” of their collections at affordable prices. You also get one-on-one consultation with the designer representative. Sign-up for email alerts. 

“Alteration” is not a dirty word: Don’t worry if we don’t have your size. We specialize in altering dresses to your exact fit. If you find the right dress at the right price, there are options to customize. Don’t forget, most wedding gowns need some kind of alteration. Gowns can be altered a few sizes if necessary.  

Shop our exclusive bridal line: As bridal gown specialists, we know what brides want in a dress. That’s why we launched Liv Harris Designs. These gowns are made of luxurious silks and exquisite laces. Discount wedding dresses come in all sizes and are offered at extremely reasonable prices.

Sell your dress: After your big day, we make it easy to recoup some of your investment by selling your gown online. We offer a free 30-day listing service or a 180-day listing for a fee of $19.99. These listings are online only. You set your own price and return policy, and customers contact you through the service. You remain anonymous. Sell your dress here. 

Make VOWS and your first choice for a designer wedding gown. No matter what your taste or budget, we’re here to help you find the perfect—and affordable—dress.  Happy shopping, and we hope to see you soon.

VOWS is conveniently located in Watertown, MA, just 8 miles outside of Boston and Logan International Airport. We have lots of free parking!
