Wedding on a Budget: Your Ultimate Guide to Cairo’s Best Ready-to-Wear Wedding Dress Shops

The hassle of getting your wedding dress can become very stressful, and while it is nice to have the freedom of customising your gown for the big day, it can get too hectic or too expensive. We surely love top-name designers such as Iman Saab, Samo Hagras, Maison Yeya, and more. Sometimes, however, one’s looking for a bit more reasonably-priced wedding dress. So, if you’re looking for something ready-to-wear and not too highly priced, this is the list to check.

Chantelle

One of Cairo’s biggest shops for wedding dresses, you can find it at 18 Abdullah Draz Street in Heliopolis. They have bridal dresses on offer for rent or sale. Rent ranges from 5,000 up to 35,000 EGP, and sale ranges from 52,000 to 100,000 EGP.

Hatgawez

Located in Abbas Al-Akkad Street, Hatgawez offers bridal dresses on rent in the range of 5,500 to 40,000 EGP, and for sale in the range of 25,000 to 60,000 EGP.

With a slogan that every bride is one of a kind, Bridal Veil offers a unique collection of wedding dresses at their Heliopolis branch. For rent, dresses range from 2,000 to 45,000 EGP, while 10,000 to 90,000 EGP is the range for sale.

The Boutique

This New Cairo spot has a diverse collection of designer dresses perfect for your wedding. They don’t offer them for rent, but their sale prices range from 10,000 to 100,000 EGP.

Tiara Bridal 

Tiara offer a ton of options for brides, including their collection of comfy wedding shoes for long nights of dancing. The Nasr City shop rents in the range of 3,500 to 35,000 EGP, and sells in the range of 10,000 to 75,000 EGP.

Glamour

With a collection including dresses from a lot of international designers, Glamour takes its spot in Mirage Mall. It offers no renting, but has dresses in the range of 10,000 to 90,000 EGP.

Mary’s Bridal

Located in Giza, Mary’s Bridal works in the more reasonable range of prices. They have dresses for rent starting at 3,000 and up to 16,000 EGP, while dresses for sale start at 12,000 up to 35,000 EGP.

Malton Bridal

Malton’s big and diverse collection offers no renting, but they have dresses on the sale in the range of 20,000 to 65,000 EGP. Malton Bridal has a shop in Zamalek and a branch in Alexandria.

The Wedding Shop Egypt

The Wedding Shop have a branch in Alexandria and another one in New Cairo. They don’t offer rentals, but their prices for sale range between 25,000 and 120,000 EGP.

Bloom Bridal Boutique

Shop from their collection of designer dresses whether for sale or rent. You can find Bloom Bridal Boutique in El-Sayed El-Merghany Street, Heliopolis.

When in doubt, preowned is always an option…

When you’re on a tighter budget, it’s smarter to go for preowned dresses to save a few bucks for more important things on your list. Some of the best picks for that approach include La Reina, an e-commerce platform with hundreds of dresses and gowns to pick from. They also have a veiled collection, and can even drop off up to 5 dresses at your doorstep so you can try them all, and only pay for the one you pick.

The Wardrobe Egypt also offers a huge collection of wedding dresses that have been “preloved only once”, as they put it. Just like La Reina, you can buy or rent any of the dresses they have on offer.

Finally, you can shop at PreOwned Dresses, they connect buyers and sellers of used wedding dresses and other special gowns. Their price range is between 6,500 to 20,000 EGP for sale.
