California Bride Goes Viral for $47 Wedding Dress and Minimal, Low-cost Wedding

As wedding costs skyrocket because of inflation, one California couple's efforts to keep their special day below $500 have gone viral.

According to "Good Morning America," Kiara and Joel Brokenbrough of Los Angeles decided to be "as minimal as possible"

when planning their nuptials, including purchasing a $47 wedding dress from Shein, a digital retailer similar to Fashion Nova. 

"I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dress because I had the mindset I'm gonna wear this one time for a few hours," Kiara told the outlet.

Kiara posted videos of the low-cost wedding and dress to TikTok, Instagram and YouTube where they amassed more than 1 million views. 

Users on the platform congratulated Kiara on the beautiful wedding, and some felt inspired to have a cost-friendly marriage ceremony themselves.
