You can buy a lot for $3.75... including a wedding dress.
Along with several other brides this year, Jillian Lynch has captured the attention of millions after revealing she spent less than $4 on her wedding gown.
A month before her wedding, Lynch shared a video on TikTok where she explained that she shopped through thrift stores in Ohio to find a potential look that could work for her big day. She pulled out a Camila Coelho Reyna Maxi dress that was new with tags. It was originally priced at $4.99 but was on sale for $3.75.
After trying on the dress, Lynch wasn't completely sold yet, and she asked her followers for feedback. While many liked the dress, others suggested she get it altered.
In addition to the dress, the Dallas-based digital creator found a pair of short block-heeled shoes from Visanze Collection for $8.
Fast forward to Lynch's wedding in May, when she shared a video wearing the dress and shoes she had asked her followers about in April. The grand base total of her look was $11.75.
Lynch did point out that she had to spend an additional $110 on alterations -- which still left her ensemble ranging under $125.
"Pretty sure the baby's breath cost more than the dress," she jokingly captioned the video, referring to the tiny white blooms placed in her updo hairstyle.
Since posting, Lynch's videos have racked up over two million likes with thousands of people calling out how beautiful she looked.

The newlywed recently showed off her first thrifting experience in Dallas, where she's seen picking out several items ranging from clothing to home goods that all came out to less than $60.
