Modest Bridal Gown Pricing - What Can You Expect?
Maybe you've seen some of the prices of gowns on bridal TV shows, or checked out styles at a high end bridal boutique - it can be quite shocking. It's not unusual to see wedding dresses priced at $2000 or $3000 and go even higher.
The wedding dress budget for our clientele can be a little different.
You may not believe it, but when shopping for a modestly designed wedding dress, you don't have to expect super high prices. We've found designers who are creating modest wedding dress collections for our store, being very sensitive to keep costs down. And they can still create some very elegant modest styles that are remarkably cost effective.

At A Closet Full of Dresses, we listen to our customer's limits on the wedding dress budget and have selected styles from our modest gown designers that range from $500 - $1700 (brand new, current year gowns). This includes all our wedding dress styles from fitted to ballgowns, traditional to boho, short sleeve to long sleeve, various train lengths and fabric types.
Of course dresses on the higher end of our price range have finer, more expensive lace, hand-sewn beading or other features that just cost a bit more. But we can also offer simpler, yet beautiful gown styles at the lower end of the range as well. These more "minimalistic" styles are created with lower cost fabrics and do not have expensive fine lace or labor-intensive beading, but are gorgeous! So check out the prices on our wedding dress galleries, look at the fabrics and extras and you can get an idea what price you should expect for the dress you have in mind.

Remember, when you come into A Closet Full of Dresses to try on modest wedding gowns, make sure you tell us your budget. We know how important cost can be to brides and their families, so we don't want to offer gowns for you to try on that might be too expensive. The higher priced dresses are elegant - you will love them - but we'd hate for you to fall in love with a gown that is just not feasible.
To help with costs, we offer specials in our store. Ask about discounts on accessories like veils or belts, we may have more flexibility on those when you buy your gown at our store in Arizona. Also, we do have a layaway program that might help some families - you must put at least half down on your dress at the time of purchase, but then pay it off later when your wedding gets closer (these offers are only available at our Arizona storefront).
We still get inquiries whether we have even lower priced dresses. The solution: our Discount Bridal Collection!

As with most bridal stores, we have extra sample dresses that are discontinued, maybe been tried on a few times but are still in new condition. We've lowered the price on selected styles to move them out of our small store and make room for current models. One of these can still be your dream wedding gown at a drastically reduced price!

WARNING: Beware of internet wedding dress offers that are too good to be true. Some unscrupulous vendors are offering wedding dresses for $99 and using the same photos and style names as the gowns that retail for $1500. These are NOT made with the same fabric or even patterns that our designers use. They are knock-offs, and may not come as expected, or even arrive on time. Sometimes these dresses are acceptable. But most times brides who use these vendors are extremely disappointed. Unfortunately we've had to help more than a few brides who fell victim to these scams.
