How much does a wedding dress cost?

Buying a wedding dress is unlike purchasing a piece of everyday attire. You’re going to be wearing this dress on one of the most important days of your life, and so you’ll likely spend quite a bit of money on your wedding dress. While wedding dress prices do vary greatly, the average wedding dress cost in the U.S. is $1,000. It typically ranges from $280 to $1,650, but you can purchase a wedding dress for far above and below those prices.

Lower range

$ 100 or less

Average cost

$ 1000

Most couples spend between

$ 280 - $ 1650

Upper range

$ 2600 or more

Costs displayed in graph are based on spend from thousands of couples who recently reported pricing for this service within their WeddingWire review. Pricing varies based on factors including, but not limited to, vendor’s experience, level of expertise, event guest count, date, and geographic region. Data displayed represents both wedding dress and tuxedo costs.

View dress costs

What impacts wedding dress prices?

There are a few factors that will impact your wedding dress cost. Most notably, an extremely detailed wedding dress with lots of beading and pricey fabric (silk, etc.) will cost more than a simpler wedding dress, as more intricate gowns require more labor and materials. So a grand ball gown with beading and detailed embroidery will cost more than a plainer sheath dress. Also, if you’re set on wearing a wedding dress by a famous dress designer, know that it will likely cost more.

What additional wedding dress costs should a bride plan for?

There are several additional costs that brides should factor into their wedding dress cost and budget. These include:
  • Alterations: If you want to drastically change your wedding dress, your alterations may end up costing more than your actual wedding dress!
  • Undergarments and accessories: Be sure to factor in your accessories— bridal undergarments, shoes, and more. These accessories will greatly affect how your gown looks and fits, so don’t forget to include them in your wedding dress cost.
  • Cleaning and preservation: Don’t be surprised if you’re still spending money on your wedding dress after your wedding! Whether you plan on wearing your wedding dress again, passing it on to a future generation, or none of the above, it’s still a good idea to have your gown professionally cleaned and preserved. Wedding dress cleaning and preservation can cost $200 or more.

How can you save money on a wedding dress?

Yes, a bride’s wedding dress will cost a lot of money—probably more than you’ll spend on another piece of attire in your life! However, there are several ways to save money on your wedding dress while still finding a gown that you absolutely love.
  • Don’t try on dresses that are over-budget: Be upfront with your bridal salon consultant about your budgets—and be sure ask about the cost of each dress you try on. Avoid the temptation of trying on a wedding dress that’s out of your price range.
  • Find a simple wedding dress, and accessorize: As mentioned, a simple and relatively unadorned wedding gown will cost less than an extremely detailed wedding dress. If you’re on a tight wedding dress budget, we recommend finding a simple gown and using a beaded sash or a brooch to give it some extra sparkle.
  • Find a dress you love as is: Any significant alterations or customizations that you do to a wedding dress will cost (a lot of!) money. Therefore, if you want to make significant changes to a wedding dress (add sleeves, change the silhouette, etc.), that gown is probably not for you. Look for a wedding dress that you love mostly as it looks off the hanger.
  • Scour sample sales: Many bridal salons offer sample sales where they sell sample dresses from past seasons. These sample dresses are typically in sizes 6 to 12, so if you fall in that size category, you may find a gorgeous gown at a low price at one of these sales.
  • Visit trunk shows: If you’re set on purchasing a gown by a specific designer, you might find a deal at a trunk show. Trunk shows are when a bridal salon features the collection of a particular dress designer—and usually offers a discount (usually about 5 or 10 percent off that designer’s wedding dress prices). Research which salons in your area carry your favorite designers, and check their websites for upcoming trunk shows.
  • Give yourself time to shop: A wedding dress can take several months to arrive after you’ve ordered it. Be sure to start shopping for your wedding dress as soon as possible —many brides shop at least nine months in advance, if not more. If you wait until the last minute, you may end up paying rush charges for your dress, which can greatly add to your total wedding dress cost.

How much does it cost to alter a wedding dress?

Wedding dress alterations can be expensive—particularly if you’re planning on making major changes to your wedding dress. Some bridal salons offer wedding dress alterations in-house. If yours does not, you will likely have to find a tailor who specializes in wedding dresses (be sure to read online reviews of wedding dress tailors before hiring). You’ll typically schedule your wedding dress fittings for at least three months before your big day—so plan accordingly. 76 percent of bridal salons charge alterations by piece rather than a flat fee, so the average cost of dress alterations can vary widely depending on the extent of the alterations. Simply adjusting a hemline won’t cost a ton, but adding sleeves or reworking a bodice will!

What questions should you ask a wedding dress tailor?

When choosing a wedding dress tailor, there are several questions you should ask:
  • How many fitting appointments will I need? How long will the process take?
  • What types of alterations do you recommend for my wedding dress?
  • Have you worked with a dress and fabric like mine before?
  • Can you provide a cost for my alterations?
  • How will you store my wedding dress?
  • What do I need to bring to my first fitting appointment?

Wedding Dresses in Atlanta

Culturally rich and hugely significant both historically and in the present day, Atlanta is bursting at the seams with things to do and places to visit. Besides the bustle of activity, from museums and eateries to the large base for film productions, the city is also aesthetically pleasing. One of the most forested cities in the country, there are parks, gardens, and many natural sites throughout to entice and entertain loved ones. The discernible energy combined with the picturesque character makes Atlanta a memorable locale for hosting your wedding.

Letting Your Style Shine Through

Atlanta is known for being a place of variety and this is no different when it comes to wedding dresses. If you are inspired by looks that seem straight off the runway you are in luck, as a number of stores have couture gowns. Meanwhile, other styles included in many stocks are more casual, as well as options suitable for elopements and understated courthouse weddings. Some boutiques even offer vintage gowns or offer services for customization. Be sure to look through images of gowns available on the stores’ website or browse the portfolios of stocked designers. It may also be wise to do research before your appointment and bring in images that illustrate your vision to help narrow down the many choices.

Expanding Your Horizons in the Peach State: Marietta, Georgia

Roughly twenty minutes by car out of Atlanta is the historic Marietta, Georgia. Classic architecture roams free in this city with a small-town feel on the edge of an urban precipice. As such, it is a picturesque location for your special day while within reach of Atlanta. From estates that carry a traditional and grand air to banquet halls easily adapted for casual gatherings, you have many choices when deciding where to host your wedding. Marietta’s proximity to Atlanta also gives you access to Hartsfield-Jackson, Atlanta’s international airport, and the many hotels and bed and breakfasts throughout the city and surrounding suburbs. This can provide convenience for your guests and to make things even easier you can use our room block tool to sort out accommodations.

Knowing the Forecast

With a temperate subtropical climate, Atlanta experiences hot and humid summers and colder winters with temperatures dropping below freezing every so often in the evenings. Rain, sleet, and snow feature throughout the year with April being the driest month on average. As such, in the later fall through the winter, a warmer dress or garment might be of interest while something constructed from breathable fabrics should be considered during hotter months.
