Bridal Blog: How will you spend your wedding gown savings?


The Goodwill Wedding Gala is fast approaching. It will be so much fun to watch brides as they find their dream wedding gown. As I think back about my own special day, I can remember dreaming about my wedding, and how I wanted everything to be. For the most part everything turned out beautiful but I know there were so many ways that I could have saved.

As I talk to brides-to-be I enjoy giving tips and pointers on how to have a dream wedding for less. One of the most important, and possibly most expensive items a bride will purchase, is her wedding gown. Designer gowns can cost thousands of dollars. However, the Goodwill Wedding Gala allows brides a chance to find their bridal look for a lot less – $400 dollars or less!

Spending less for your dress means that you can use the money you save for other parts of the big day. Here are some things you can do with the money you save on your wedding gown if you purchase it at Goodwill.

• Add to your floral arrangements.

• Make your bouquet larger or beef up centerpieces.

• Purchase extras like personalized favors.

• Accessorize to compliment your bridal look, including your jewelry, veil or shoes.

• Search for your jewelry selection.

• Invest in bridal party gifts to show your appreciation to your wedding party.

• Treat yourself to luxury spa services. De-stress and pamper yourself before the big event.

As I prepare the wedding gowns for the sale I am so impressed with the tremendous inventory of designer wedding gowns. I am also thankful to our donors and all of the sponsors who have supported this event. It is my wish that brides who come to the gala leave with a wedding gown that makes them feel as beautiful as I felt on my wedding day without the large price tag. Brides who purchase their gowns at the gala can also be proud that their purchase will help Goodwill continue changing lives.
