A bride has gone viral on social media with her low-cost wedding, claiming that she spent $500 USD, roughly $670 AUD, on the entire day.
Posting on TikTok, Kiara Brokenbrough shared a video of her beautiful wedding and commented, “This is for people who want to get married but they think they need money to do so. You don’t!”
Others were quick to jump in with their opinions, with some skeptical that the $670 could cover the wedding dress as well.
“Lol I doubt the dress and tux are included, but that would be dope!” one wrote.
“This is everything! I’m not going broke to feed and entertain anyone,” another added.
“Spent 20k and was divorced 3 years later,” one lamented.
In response to all the people who doubted that the total included the wedding dress, Kiara made another TikTok which racked up almost 1 million views.
Showing off her wedding dress, Kiara announced that her gown was only $47 USD, roughly $63 AUD, from online retailer SHEIN.
TikTok users adored the dress, praising Kiara for the great deal she got, with some even sharing their own bargains.
“I love that people are realising paying the price of a car for a dress you’ll wear once doesn’t make any damn sense,” one wrote.
“Goes to show you that she made the dress and it didn’t make her,” another commented.
“Mine was $75 from ASOS!” a third chimed in.
Writing on social media, Kiara explained why she went for a cheaper option.
"I didn’t want to spend hella money on a dress I would wear one time for a few hours and that would get dirty," she said.
"I’m so happy [with] the route we took. We really worked together on everything and have no debt from this."
Their ceremony was at a viewpoint in California, which is a public place so it was free.
The couple were also gifted the runner, flowers and cake, plus guests paid for their own food at the reception.
