How Can I Make My Wedding Dress Look More Expensive?

May 19, 2022

Brides have many details to consider, prepare and pay for when planning their wedding. You have to take care of finding your wedding dress, choosing flowers, inviting guests, choosing a cake, finding a venue, and several other details. You want everything to be perfect without breaking the bank. When you imagine your wedding dress, it looks luxurious and expensive. Did you know that you don’t have to buy a high-end designer wedding gown?

You can shop at a bridal boutique near you, find a dress you love, add a few extra design details or embellishments to create a more luxurious-looking wedding dress and walk down the aisle glowing in your dream wedding dress.

We are going to share with you a few expert tips that you can use to make your wedding dress look more expensive, stay within your budget, and you will look gorgeous on your wedding day.

Tips For Creating A Wedding Dress That Looks Expensive

If you dream of an expensive-looking wedding dress and don’t want to spend a lot of money, you can bring your vision to life using simple and effective tricks to upgrade your wedding gown.

Wear A Long, Dramatic Train or Veil

Adding an extravagant veil or luxurious long train will dramatically impact the look of your wedding dress and make it look like a designer’s wedding gown.

You can work with a sewist who matches or uses complimentary fabric to add a train to your wedding dress. Adding details like beads, crystals, or lace to embellish the material will give it a more glamorous look.

For your veil, you will want to use a finer delicate fabric that can tolerate alterations without ripping or tearing. Choosing a perfect veil for your wedding day is essential, and you do not want to have a hole in your veil right before you walk down the aisle. To add a light sparkle to your wedding veil, you can add some beading that will catch the natural light as it flows as you move about and walk down the aisle.

Add Beading

Many luxury and designer wedding gowns often include delicate beading to enhance the design without making the beading the center of attention. You can choose a wedding dress that has a relatively simple design and add beadwork later on to make your wedding dress look more expensive.

One of the benefits of adding the beadwork yourself is that you will have complete control over the types of beads used and be able to choose a pattern that you love. The best way to have beading added to your wedding gown is to find an experienced seamstress who can guide you and advise you on bringing your dream wedding dress to life. Remember when adding beading that usually less is more.

Have Your Wedding Gown Professionally Altered

When you look into hiring a sewist to alter your gown, choosing the least expensive one, it’s not always the best choice. Employing an expert sewist to alter your wedding dress professionally can make all the difference in how it fits on your wedding day. Wedding dress alterations should be undetectable and leave your dress hugging you in all the right places.

Add Detail On The Back

Luxury wedding gowns often include unique, beautiful backs, and it is an easy way to add detail to your wedding dress that can dramatically impact the look. You can work with a sewist to create a U-shaped or V-shaped cut-out look to enhance the style of your dress. The key is to work with an experienced sewist to ensure the detail is flawlessly done.


Choosing delicate, elegant jewelry for your bridal attire can be the perfect way to make your wedding gown look more luxurious without altering it. Adding sparkly necklace earrings and a bracelet can help bring your wedding ensemble together; however, your jewelry mustn’t overpower your entire look. 

Make sure that your metals match and complement the shade of your dress and remember that simple elegance is the best way to create a luxurious look. If you also have beadwork on your wedding dress, choose jewelry similar in size and color to ensure it doesn’t clash.

Accessorize Your Wedding Dress

Choosing the perfect essential accessories will enhance the look of a simple wedding dress and is budget-friendly. Wedding dress accessories include sashes, purses, a veil or train, jewelry, and other elegant touches that will make your wedding gown look more expensive and add a personal touch to your wedding gown.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
