Get an all-in-one wedding dress

  • Purchase a dress with structure built in. That way, you won’t have to spend additional money on expensive undergarments. The perfect dress should hug your body in all the right ways. Consider a gown with built-in bra cups or boning through the bodice for extra support. You shouldn’t feel uncomfortable in your dress. One of the best thing about our wedding dresses here at Danelle’s is that most gowns have built-in undergarments. We know how expensive undergarments can get, and we want to help in that regard! And, we’re always here to make sure you feel your best and most confident in your gown.




Keep on the lookout for bridal sales

  • Visit a bridal shop that offers sales or incentives. Even as a budget bride, it is totally possible to find the wedding dress of your dress within your price range. We know, because we make it happen every day! Definitely mark your calendars for upcoming sales. It’s a great way to get a gorgeous wedding dress at an unbeatable price.


  • Sample sales are an amazing way to get a great deal on a designer wedding gown. A sample sale is when a bridal shop offers amazing prices on in-stock wedding dresses that have been tried on by other brides. Every few months, Danelle schedules sample sales that you definitely do not want to miss. Be sure to stay updated with upcoming sales through our Facebook or Instagram pages.


  • Some shops offer great prices during seasonal or yearly bridal sales. You can get as much as 50 percent off at some bridal sales! That means a designer wedding dress at half price. What could be better?! We have a few amazing sales every year with some special flash sales mixed in. Best way to stay updated? Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

Visit an outlet store or a shop with incentives

  • Bridal outlets, like Danelle’s Bridal Outlet in Pueblo, offer overstock gowns at a fraction of their regular price. Think of a bridal outlet as a Nordstrom Rack. Same great designers and designs that have been featured at Nordstrom, but for a fraction of the price! A budget bride’s dream come true.


  • Look for a bridal shop that offers incentives. Here at Danelle’s, we celebrate our brides with $300 off your wedding gown on your first bridal appointment. That’s because so many brides find their gown on their first visit with us! It’s a great way to save some money on the dress of your dreams.


Check out a trunk show

  • Trunk shows are also great if you want to save a little cash. At trunk shows, a designer’s collection is featured at the bridal shop, and all gowns within the collection are 10 percent off. We have several amazing designer wedding dresses here at Danelle’s. And, a trunk show is a great way to see a designer’s entire collection under one roof. Whether you want to be a Calla Blanche bride or a Chic Nostalgia bride, we’ve got a trunk show for you!
