    Brides Shared Photos Of Their Thrifted Wedding Dresses, And Every Single One Is $100 Or Under

    One woman bought her dress for $1. Yeah, you heard me right.

    According to a study that surveyed 15,000 couples in 2021, the average cost of a wedding dress in that year was $1,800. That's 450 cups of coffee at Starbucks! Or 4.5 good quality vacuums! Or, well, you get the picture — it's simply a f**k ton of money.

    No judgment if you're someone who wants to ball out for your special day, but I have some GREAT news for the brides on a budget. You can get an incredibly gorgeous dress for a just-as-beautiful price at a thrift store! If you don't believe me, check out these 14 dresses that people thrifted for $100 or less (sourced from r/ThriftStoreHauls):

    1. "I was starting to lose hope that I’d be able to thrift my wedding dress. I bought this today for $60! With alterations and a cleaning, it still comes in far under what I would have paid for something a lot more simple. I’m in love!"
