Yes, the Dress of Your Dreams is Affordable! Payment Plans for Wedding Dresses with The Last Minute Bride

affordable wedding dress options

Many brides can relate to this moment: you’re flipping through a bridal magazine or perusing the dresses at a bridal salon when you suddenly stop and inhale sharply. It’s the dress. It’s the dress!

You know what we mean, the dress that you can imagine wearing as you walk down the aisle. The one that makes you feel like a princess, a queen, the most beautiful woman in the world! The dress that you want to wear when your partner turns around and sees you for the first time!

That moment is often followed by the cutting realization that the dress is outside your budget. Maybe it’s even way outside your budget.

Your heart sinks. What can you do now?

Hallelujah - Payment Plans to the Rescue!

All of the designer wedding dresses on our website are deeply discounted, averaging 30-50% off the regular retail prices and even up to 85% off retail prices (looking for a specific designer dress? Click HERE to add yourself to our watch list).

But sometimes that can still feel like a big chunk of change when you’re looking at the overall cost of a wedding. We totally get it! That’s why we offer payment plans so you can have the dress of your dreams (and still have money for a fab pair of shoes to complete your look).

How The Last Minute Bride Payment Plans Work

If you know that a payment plan will be a good option for you, yay! We’re so excited to be part of your dress shopping experience and we can’t wait to get started.

Please email us right away. The only way to set up a payment plan is to speak with us directly, as we do not have an automated payment plan system on the website (it will have to be set up by our team on a case-by-case basis).

Typically we let you split the dress payment into 2-6 equal payments. For more expensive dresses, we may stretch it out to 8 payments if that works best for you. Payments are due every 2 weeks, and you can pay off the balance at any time with no fees (please be sure and check out our FAQ Page for more information about payments).

Once the dress is paid off, it’s yours! We’ll ship is directly to you within 24-hours with a BIG CONGRATULATIONS!

Nuts + Bolts of Payment Plans

As soon as you make the first payment, your dress will be taken off the market. We’ll save it for you!

Please note that a dress purchased via payment plan is only eligible for exchange (not return) and any payment you make toward a payment plan is non-refundable. Should you start a payment plan with us and then decide you want a different dress, your payments will be retained as store credit, and we will help you exchange the dress for another one – we want you to find the perfect one! 

If you would feel more comfortable with the ability to return a dress for a refund, consider our “pay in full” option. We have a great return and exchange policy, which is very unusual in the bridal industry! Once an item is shipped to you, you have 24 hours to try it on, sleep on it, think about it, and if it’s not the right dress for you, we’ll gladly take it back for any reason as long as it’s in the same condition.

We would love to help you find the perfect dress for your big day! If you can’t find what you’re looking for in our store, be sure to give us a heads up by filling out the watch list questionnaire. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for your perfect wedding dress!
