If you are looking for very cheap wedding gowns but still want a first quality dress then here are the secrets to getting a drop dead gorgeous wedding dress at a ridiculously cheap price.
It’s an unfortunate fact, excessive mark-ups are the reality of any product or service related to the wedding industry. But when you have the right ‘insider” information you can take control of the situation and get a wedding gown just like the ones you see in the pages of the top magazines or at any bridal expo or trunk show at a price that you can afford.
The reality of the wedding dress industry is this–over 87% of wedding dresses today are made in China. Many of the top designers use factories in China to produce their gowns. Why? Because labor is cheaper there and yes, there are more garment manufacturers in China then anywhere else right now. Also, there are many skilled seamstresses and tailors in China, a skill that is slowly disappearing in the states and in other counties
So chances are good that that dress you have had your eye on with a few exceptions, was made in China. In some cases like on eBay, you can get your wedding dress directly from a Chinese supplier. Sometimes a very risky move, but before you do that there is a better way.
The best way to get very cheap wedding gowns is to find a wholesaler that has a working knowledge with a reputable wedding gown supplier(s) in china. Usually you can find deeply discounted gowns like this online. An online wholesaler doesn’t have the overhead that a bridal shop has because they don’t have to pay the high costs that come with having a storefront. Now he or she can pass those savings directly to the customer.
A reputable online wedding dress wholesaler will have a strong knowledge of wedding gowns, how they are made and should be concerned with quality above everything else. But most importantly that wholesaler is assuming the risk for you. Rather than buying direct from the manufacturer, the reputable wholesaler puts their reputation and money on the line when you purchase your wedding dress from them.
One thing that you should always watch out for when looking for very cheap wedding gowns are the pictures of the bridal dresses themselves. If they are pictures of gowns that you’ve seen in magazines or ads, then be careful. Look for pictures of the “actual gowns themselves”. You want to see something that has already been made. They are not always as glamorous as that dress that’s on that highly paid model, but at least you will know what you are getting.
See if you can get close-up photos of detailing. This is a true sign that the wholesaler puts quality first. Look at the beading, is it hand sewn? The majority of the detailing should always be hand sewn. Sometimes glue is necessary, but only in certain circumstances. Look at the fineness of embellishments and embroidery as well.
Don’t let the prices throw you, just because you are getting very cheap wedding gowns doesn’t necessarily mean that you gown won’t be 1st Quality. Remember the mark up on wedding gowns can sometimes be 500%. It’s outrageous. But the key to finding a reputable wedding gown wholesaler is to find one that is willing to give you a solid return policy. As long as that is in place, then you will be amazed at the quality you can get at a price that you can afford.
Finding a good wedding gown wholesaler is the difference between getting very cheap wedding gowns that are cheaply made or finding that one gorgeous well made gown at a bargain price. Now you can look like you spent $2,000 on your bridal gown when in all actuality, you maybe spent $299!
