When you start putting together your wedding budget, you’ll begin to consider the cost of your wedding dress. If you’ve started to do your research – even if it just means watching Say Yes to the Dress marathons on TLC – the cost of a wedding dress might start to seem overwhelming. Say no more, Savvy Brides! We’re here to help you figure out just how much you should put into your wedding dress budget, so that you can nail that overall budget on your big day. 


Average Wedding Dress Cost

The Knot shares that the average cost of a wedding dress in 2018 is around $1,600, including alterations, but not including accessories or bridal undergarments. This average takes into account brides buying their dresses new and used, and the price tag might still seem a little high to our budget-conscious brides.

So, let’s break it down for you. After examining dozens of wedding budgets, we’ve found that Glamour’s goal of spending approximately 5 percent of your total wedding budget on the wedding dress, accessories and alterations is a generally accepted rule of thumb. So, if you plan on spending $20,000 on your wedding, you’ll want to set aside approximately $1000 for your wedding dress budget, etc.
