Bride spends less than $10 on wedding dress

Wedding dress costs can be high, but some brides find ways to keep costs down.
Take Rachel Connealy for example. Connealy previously went viral for snagging two wedding dresses — one for $3 and the other for $5, for a total of $8.
"I still felt like a princess on my day," Connealy told GMA. "I think my own version of what a princess looks like."

When the 26-year-old Florida bride released her wedding dress and price tag, it caught the attention of millions - with some shouting that her bridal style was very similar to Meghan Markle's Givenchy dress, which she wore for her 2019 wedding to Prince Harry.
Connealy was able to successfully find both dresses at thrift stores and advised other brides to do the same and check out thrift lingerie departments as well.
"You go into the wedding dress section of a thrift store and they have this beautiful white silk and vintage lace... and get creative with it," she said.
Since Connealy saved so much for her own dress, she was able to buy her bridesmaids' dresses.
"I would much rather have an experience than having this dress in a box that I can use to show my kids 20 years from now to say, 'This is so out of style,'" she said.

Connealy isn't the only person trying to save money for her big day. The Hashtag Cheap Wedding has over 4.2 million views on TikTok.
Just last week, another bride, Kiara Brokenbrough, also went viral when she revealed she spent $47 on her wedding dress and only $500 on her entire wedding.
"I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dress because I had this attitude that I'm going to wear it for a few hours," Brokenbrough told GMA.
