Let’s face it, not all brides have the luxury of going for designer gowns or high-end, custom-made creations. The common apprehension is that a less expensive dress may end up looking cheap. Not necessarily! There are several ways to make an inexpensive wedding dress look like it’s worth a million bucks. Today, we’re letting you in on the juicy details. So listen carefully, brides!
(1) Beading and embellishments don’t reflect a dress’ price tag.
Whether you go for a lot of beading and embellishments, or you keep it at the bare minimum, the key to making your gown look premium is to ensure that the overall result is a polished look. When there’s too much going on, or when the design lacks cohesion, a gown can end up looking poorly-made. And while we love beading and embellishments, a non-embellished gown can look amazing too. Instead of having an adorned gown, you can have a simple dress with alternative details such as a bow or lace sleeves, or you can go for a sleek satin dress with a couture cut.

(2) A dress that fits you well does wonders.
An ill-fitting gown will make you look undone and will give the impression that the dress was not carefully handcrafted to suit you. If you go for a more affordable gown, spend on proper alterations to ensure that it fits like a glove. A gown that’s tailored to perfection will have you looking and feeling like gold.
