Wedding gowns can be shockingly expensive, especially if you're thinking of having one custom-made by a well-known designer. And while it's true that we tend to attach feelings of nostalgia to pieces of clothing—especially something this significant—it's worth noting that more affordable options exist if you'd rather use that money for other things (like your first home or your dream honeymoon).
