What to Include in Your Wedding Dress Budget

At Laine London, we believe you shouldn't have to compromise style for affordability, which is why we offer wedding dress rentals and a killer repurchase program!

Planning a wedding involves a good bit of organization, including creating a wedding dress budget. While it’s ideal to only spend the allotted amount you budgeted for your gown, it can be challenging to know about all expenses that comes with it. There is more to your dress budget that you might have expected. Below is a breakdown to help!

The Dress

Whatever your budget is, we have a dress for you! When you begin dress shopping, don’t forget to factor in the deposit. Once you say ‘yes!’, you’ll need to put down a 60% deposit and pay the remaining balance within 90 days.


Shoes, a veil, jewelry, a headpiece, a belt—all of these complementing pieces to your bridal look should be factored into your budget. Depending on the style or look you are going for, not all accessories are needed but for the ones you know you will want (for example a veil) you will want to add that cost into your budget. Did you know we rent veils, headpieces, jewelry and more?! Click here to check them out.


99% of the time, your wedding dress will need alterations. According to Nancy Yan, Laine London's Alterations Manager, you should always budget more than less. At Laine London, we recommend budgeting $120 - $200 if you get your alterations done with us. Keep in mind that alterations may cost more depending on how quickly you need the alterations done or if you plan on making any special customizations.
