How much does my wedding dress weigh?
A average wedding dress weighs about 3kg or 7lbs, but of course there is a wide range.
To find out what your dress weighs:
- Jump on your bathroom scales (without the dress) and note your weight
- Repeat the process, this time holding the dress up close to your body
- Subtract the first number from the second, and that is the weight of your dress
Make sure you round up to the nearest kilogram or pound - this is how carriers usually charge. Rounding up typically covers the extra weight of packaging too.
