Philadelphia Bride Only Spent 15 Dollars On Wedding Dress
Just the thought of getting married sounds extremely expensive and makes you think twice about proposing. After reading on PhillyMag.com about the Philadelphia bride that only spent $15 on a wedding dress those thoughts change a little.
Christiana Light is one of the VERY few brides, maybe even the only bride, that spent only $15 on a dress. It was mentioned on PhillyMag.com that she was content with "not spending a ton on the wedding." Light told Philly Magazine that she's not really a "wedding dress person" and never really thought about spending so much on a dress that would probably only be worn once.
PhillyMag.com also reported that Christiana Light purchased the dress while on a trip to California. Light walked into an American Cancer Society thrift store where she found her wedding dress with an original price tag of $30. That price is already super low for a wedding dress, but Light lucked out even more when she saw that it had a 50% off tag. This discount made the dress come out to be $15. What a deal!
On average, in Philadelphia, a wedding can cost around $40,000. Light mentioned that spending all that money or perhaps even more is "not that relaxed, easy kind of feel."
Light wasn't the only person to get such a deal on their dress. Her bridesmaids only spent $15 on their dresses as well. Now that's how you get married on a budget!
