We want you to look your best at your Quinceañera. But you don’t have to drop a million bucks to look like it!
If you are looking for some ways to save money, but still achieve the dress of your dreams, check out these money-saving tips!
Shopping at the right time can save you a TON of money on your Quince dress! Plan ahead and shop for your dress during an off-season, these tend to be during summer and winter. You can save money by doing your shopping when stores and boutiques are looking to clear out their inventory to make room for next season’s looks.
2. Avoid Alterations
While it’s unlikely you’ll find a dress that doesn’t need any alterations, keeping alterations simple can save you a ton of money. When looking for a dress, try to find something that you wouldn’t want to change, and that fits you well. A good life hack is to choose something with a corset or lace-up back!
Let’s be real, most of us are only going to wear our Quince dresses for one night. Companies like Rent the Runway and Lending Luxury are not only cost-effective, but tend to have more chic, runway-ready looks for you to choose from!
It’s likely that someone you know has an old Quince or even a prom dress that you can borrow. You can also check out a local thrift or consignment store for options! Plus, if you’re good with a sewing machine, you can even add your own unique touches onto the dress to make something totally unique and one-of-a-kind.
5. Don’t Get Caught Up with Brand Names
No one will know who designed your dress, all that matters is how you look in it! Odds are, you can find something that looks designer from a generic brand and you will look and feel just as gorgeous in it.
6. Keep it Simple
It’s usually true that the more simple the design, the less it will cost. Keeping it simple will save you money and you can always add to it for way cheaper!
7. Buy a Floor Sample
Consider buying the sample you tried on at the boutique rather than ordering a brand new gown. You can get a sizable discount off the retail price, and as long as it’s in good condition and hasn’t been out on the floor for too long, you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference.
