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?

Saying Yes to the Dress in NYC

You can spend a lot on wedding dresses in NYC, but you don’t have to. While you could easily drop thousands upon thousands of dollars on a designer gown, the fact is that couples in the Big Apple spend a bit less than the national average. Surprised? Don’t be. Consider that the city is a hub of fashion, so for every couture gown, there are dozens of indie dress designers creating beautiful one-of-a-kind creations and even more spots to score deep discounts on off-the-rack gowns.

The point is that you’ll have no problem finding the dress of your dreams here, even if you don’t start shopping eight months ahead of your wedding date (which is the usual recommendation) and regardless of your wedding budget. Should you need a gown ASAP, there are NYC wedding dress shops and seamstresses that can get you in a dress much faster.

What Shopping for Wedding Dresses in NYC Is Like

That depends on what kind of experience you’re looking for. If you want a photo-worthy, by-appointment-only boutique experience where attentive salespeople bring you gown after gown, you can have that. But if you’d prefer to browse through racks of plastic-wrapped wedding dresses in a NYC warehouse, you can do that, too. There are also lots of small shops where tailors and seamstresses can create (or recreate) just about any style of dress. Not sure what you’re looking for? Luckily, there is a lot of inspiration out there, so feel free to spend whatever free time you have browsing gowns until you find the silhouettes, hemlines, colors, and fabrics that strike your fancy. That way, when you do meet with a salesperson or a seamstress, you’ll be able to convey what it is you’re looking for.

Remember, Rules are Meant to Be Broken

You’ve probably heard a lot of rules about which wedding gowns should be worn where and by whom. When you actually start shopping for and trying on wedding dresses in NYC boutiques, however, you may discover that you are falling in love with gowns you never thought you’d go for. It’s not uncommon for someone to start shopping with an idea of what fabrics, silhouettes, lengths, and necklines they like and don’t like only to end up choosing a wedding dress that’s nothing like what they first envisioned. Keep an open mind! When a salesperson brings you a gown you wouldn’t have given a second glance, try it on anyway. You may just fall in love with it!

WeddingWire has all the tools you need to make finding your perfect wedding dress in NYC a total breeze. From tips and tricks for finding the gown of your dreams to advice about must-have accessories to everything you need to know to pick bridesmaids dresses your bridal party will adore, you’ll find it all right here.
