When working with a budget, finding an affordable wedding gown (that doesn’t compromise on style or quality!) is all about shopping smart.
If you’re starting your search online, use terms like “affordable” and “budget-friendly,” rather than “cheap wedding gown” or “online wedding gowns,” and keep an eye out for these common signs of counterfeit products and scam sites:
- Unrealistic shipping and delivery claims
- Poorly designed websites (loading errors, misspellings and grammatical mistakes, dead links, etc.)
- Odd dress imagery and/or models with cropped heads
- Designer products labeled as “cheap wedding dresses” (beware of deep discounts!)
- Convoluted or unverifiable payment processes
- An online “storefront” that claims to be an authorized retailer or stockist of a designer product, but that doesn’t appear on the designer’s Store Locator page

Beware: the reality of browsing “cheap wedding dresses” online is ripe with delivery hazards, shoddy return policies, and, in the worst cases, non-existent or counterfeit products—not a great trade-off when it comes to planning your perfect day. We all know that there is nothing like Amazon two-day shipping to lull us into a fantasy of a no-regrets, made-to-order wedding dress at the perfect price point!
