Statistics show that the average American spends around $33,391 on their wedding day. $540 out of those go for the cake, on average, and the wedding gown costs around $1,509 (of course, this is an average taken from the results of thousands of brides).
Let’s face it: this is a lot of money – especially for a dress that you would be wearing once in your life! This is probably the reason why many brides are looking for smart, creative, and cheaper alternatives when it comes to their wedding gown.
We’re very happy to see that many talented women have decided to take things into their own hands and create their own wedding dresses. Check out some of the most inspiring wedding gowns created by the brides themselves below, and we guarantee that they all cost just a fraction of the price you would pay at a bride store!
