The national average cost of weddings may be over $30,000 (!!), but that doesn’t mean dropping the big bucks has to be a requirement. Of course, one of the largest items on a wedding budget is often the dress—a walk down the aisle means every eye is on the bride, adding all kinds of pressure to the idea of finding that “perfect” gown.
While you obviously want to find the dress, there are plenty of ways to keep the cost of your gown relatively reasonable. And of course affordable weddings dress options should be on the top of your list. For starters, head directly to a retailer’s site—wedding favorites like Jenny Yooand Tadashi Shoji have great e-commerce destinations that make finding a dress (and a good sale!) that much easier. Also consider purchasing a gown that may not have the “wedding dress” label, but is white (or off-white or blush…or really any other color that you want to get married in) and beautiful all the same. Shopbop, The Reformation, BCBG and even high-street shops like Topshopand ASOS have stunning options that range from traditional to modern and elegant. And finally, don’t forget your favorite streetwear retailers that have bridal selections—like J.Crew and Anthropologie’s BHLDN.
See? Finding an affordable wedding gown to fit any ceremony style doesn’t have to take that much work. And to get you started, we found some gorgeous options sure to accommodate any budget. Scroll down to find our top picks for affordable wedding dresses under $1000!
