As soon as the ceremony begins, couples from around the world descend on Jerusalem for their reception, often in an upscale venue, or at least the one they can afford.
In the Middle East, the demand for a wedding dress is even greater, with prices ranging from hundreds of dollars to a few thousand dollars per item.
As a result, many couples who do not have the means to hire a professional designer or have the patience to wait for the wedding to be finalized may instead hire their friends or family to do it for them.
The process can be a costly undertaking, especially for those who do have a limited budget.
According to the Israeli wedding market research firm E-Wings, Israel was one of the most expensive destinations in the world for wedding dress rentals in 2016, with wedding gowns costing $7,879.
The cost of wedding dresses varies greatly from country to country, but generally comes down to location.
In countries such as Italy, Germany, and France, prices tend to be higher, but in Israel, prices are closer to half of the cost of a similar wedding dress from a nearby country.
However, in other countries, the cost can be significantly lower.
In Israel, the most common location for wedding dresses is in the northern coastal city of Ashdod, which hosts the wedding of two friends from New York.
The two couples, Shlomi and Avigdor, were invited by their family to the city for their wedding and wanted a wedding gown with their names engraved on it.
They chose a silk gown that is usually about $150, which was expensive in the country where they lived.
Dor and Shlom.
have recently purchased a gown from the designer in Jerusalem, and they are happy with the results.
The dress was made from the finest silk from Israel, but the embroidery on the skirt and back was a little off.
However they are pleased with the overall result, and Avog.
Dur is thrilled to finally get to wear it for her first wedding and says she is looking forward to her own wedding in 2019.
“We were not expecting it to be this expensive, but we have never felt so much pleasure with the product,” she says.
“I will definitely keep buying from this place because they are really good.
It’s so easy to shop here and they keep prices low, which is a big plus.”
Wedding gowns can be rented in most parts of the country, from the capital to the country’s rural villages.
Wedding dresses can be purchased at a wide variety of shops in cities and villages, and some of them are even available at discount prices.
However in some towns, such as Haifa and Beersheba, they are sold in huge numbers.
Wedding dress rentals also include an array of accessories.
Many couples who have already purchased a dress have also rented other items that may be a great addition to their wedding.
“A few years ago I purchased a silk blouse and a gold necklace from a friend in the village,” says Shlomo.
“Now I have a necklace and a skirt from the same seller.
I also got a black wedding dress and gold ring from a woman in the same village.
The ring is a very good one and I am so glad I bought it.”
Wedding dress rental prices vary from country and the region.
However the prices in Ashdol vary from $1,500 to $4,000 per dress.
Wedding gown rentals can be done in the most cost-effective way, with the help of a professional tailor.
For example, in the coastal city, Ashdods most expensive hotel is the Marriott hotel.
In Haifa, the best place to rent wedding dresses from is the Oriental Hotel, which charges a whopping $8,000 for a gown.
“In Haifa we can get cheap, and if you have the money to spend, it is a good idea to rent a wedding to a professional,” says Eitan, who owns the Haifa boutique that specializes in wedding dresses.
“However, in Ashidod we don’t have that luxury.
Most people don’t even want to wear a wedding in Haifa.”
Wedding dresses in Ash Dov are usually about a hundred to two hundred dollars.
Wedding bands and earrings can be bought for $100 to $200 per pair, and wedding dresses can range from about $600 to $800 per piece.
Wedding rings are typically only sold in a few of the more expensive hotels in Ash-Dov.
Wedding decorations can range in price from $500 to thousands.
However many of the expensive decorations are made by private individuals or even small companies, so they can cost a lot of money to buy them.
“The biggest problem we have in renting a wedding is the fact that we are limited to the amount of time that we have,” says Avig, who has rented wedding dresses in his shop for the past seven years.
“When we were younger,
