Finding the perfect wedding gown isn't always the problem, sometimes the problem is figuring out how to pay for the gown of your dreams. Here are some questions to ask and idea's on how to make your perfect gown fit into what can be a not so perfect budget.
When looking for a boutique to purchase your gown ask them about their payment plan. Some want all the money up front. Some offer credit cards that charge interest to pay for your gown. Some want a partial payment to place the order. Some (like us) will work out an interested free payment plan that fits your budget and timeframe. Making sure the formal wear store you are working with is albe to work within your payment needs is important.
If you find a gown that is out of your budget shop around. For example, there might be 3 or 4 stores in your area that carry Allure. Each store is required to price the gowns at a mimium price however, they can add an amount to that charge that they want. Get the style number and shop around, you might find you can save $50 to $250 depending on the store you are dealing with. We do not recommend online price shopping however as there are too many fraudulent websites out there and your gown is too important to take chances with. If you find the gown online and it's 1/2 price it's not the same gown and you will likely not be happy with it.
Do your research up front, know what you can afford and who can help you get the gown of your dreams within that budget plan. It will make your shopping experience more enjoyable if you know up front you can buy the gowns you are trying on.
