Are you looking for a great prom dress but feel like crying because the pretty ones are so very expensive? Well, now you really can get cheap pretty prom dresses to suit your budget. First of all many of the department stores are selling knock-offs of dresses that you saw at all the different award ceremonies. If you liked a dress from the Academy Awards, Golden Globe awards etc. you can find good copies of those dresses at bridal stores, formal wear shops and some of the department stores. Some of these dresses are only about $99.00.
But if $99.00 is too much, you might consider renting your dress. Cheap
pretty prom dresses can also be had for a few days and then back they
go to the rental company. What one company does is buy designer dresses
at wholesale and rent them for about $50.00 to $200.00. You can rent the
dress for usually a time period between four to eight days. You also
will most likely to have the option to order another size of the same
dress for no charge. That option is very helpful since depending on the
manufacturer, the right size for you will vary. Additionally, you might
be able to order a back-up style for about a $25.00 additional charge.
Check online for these types of dress rental companies.
If you don't like the idea of renting but still want cheap pretty prom
dresses consider resale shops. You need to find the upscale shops in
your city or town. They are most likely to have women who frequently
attend events requiring formals. You will get a good selection of formal
gowns in good condition. Generally, these women only wear the dresses a
few times and then may sell the dresses to finance their next purchase.
The most important criteria for selecting a cheap pretty prom dress is
that you feel fabulous in it. Confidence is by far the greatest
accessory. Next,check and see if you can move in the dress comfortably.
Also, consider what kind of undergarments you will need. It could be
that the dress requires expensive undergarments and may wind up costing
too much after you purchase them. Think about shoes too. Check with
friends who wears the same size they may have shoes to lend.
